Treatment for Wrinkles and Acne Scars

About one quarter of all of the protein in the human body is collagen. It forms molecular cables that strengthen the tendons and help support the skin and internal organs.

Animal collagen, which has been used as a wrinkle-smoother for many years, required a skin test to guard against a possible severe allergic reaction. Because the new products contain collagen found in human skin, neither single-visit injection requires a pre-treatment skin test, the company says. CosmoDerm is meant to treat superficial lines, while CosmoPlast is designed for more pronounced wrinkles.
