Collagen is one of the most important proteins found in muscles, tendons, skin, and bones. Collagen holds the human body together. Natural collagen is called endogenous collagen and synthetic collagen is exogenous collagen. Both types perform various important functions. Exogenous collagen is used for cosmetic & medical purposes such as the repair of body tissues.

The various function performed by the use of collagen along with the fact it is a natural substance is increasing its use for medical purposes. Collagen used in medical purposes can be extracted from humans, pigs, sheep or cows.

Collagen injections are considered effective in enhancing the skin contour & filling out depressions. Various fillers containing collagen are used in cosmetic procedures to remove or reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Also, collagen can be used to reduce scars. It is suggested to conduct skin tests before using collagen from cows as to avoid any kind of allergies or skin infections.
