Alternative and Additional Treatments

Alternative and Additional Treatments

While collagen remains a viable option, its popularity has recently waned with the introduction of fillers such as Restylane, which can last longer. Regardless of the treatment you are considering, it is always a good idea to investigate alternative treatment options. Other minimally invasive procedures include Botox, which may be complementary to collagen, or Restylane, which may be a better substitute for collagen. For more severe conditions, surgical procedures may be more appropriate, such as a facelift, forehead lift (brow lift), and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery.

Your doctor may recommend additional treatments for you to consider in conjunction with collagen, such as a chemical peel, laser skin resurfacing, or microdermabrasion.
