Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is the protein that holds the body together by connecting to bones, muscles, tendons, and skin. It makes up 1/3 of the protein in your body which means it is important for working with your skin.
What Is Collagen Used For?
Collagen is used to provide structure to your body through binding itself to the skin, bones, and muscles. It is what gives us shape and flexibility. It makes skin and muscles taut and durable.
It can be used artificially to help give shape back to the skin when it is lost from age or other damage. When we age, our collagen levels decrease. When our collagen levels decrease, our skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Different therapies combined with the regeneration of collagen proteins through stem cells can improve skin strength, remove sagging skin, and eliminate wrinkles.
Medical Uses For Collagen
Because collagen is a plentiful and important protein, science has found many medical uses for it. It can be medically injected or topically applied and absorbed into the skin to fix superficial defects in the skin and tissue such as scars and wrinkles.
