THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - Tm Expert Advisors -

Col­la­gen is a pro­tein found in cow-de­rived prod­ucts or in hu­man skin, and is com­monly used to plump up the lips. It can also be used to coun­ter­act the look of mild to mod­er­ate creases in the face. It’s a pop­u­lar der­mal filler op­tion for pa­tients who are main­tain­ing their ap­pear­ance af­ter a facelift or other fa­cial plas­tic surg­eries. Pa­tients who are us­ing cow-de­rived col­la­gen (bovine col­la­gen) will need to un­dergo pre-treat­ment al­lergy test­ing.

Hyaluronic Acid Hyaluronic acid is a nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring sub­stance found in hu­man con­nec­tive tis­sues and around the eyes. When used as a cos­metic in­jectable, hyaluronic acid acts as a cush­ion that in­flates the tis­sues, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously draw­ing wa­ter to the sur­face of the skin. It can be used in the cheek ar­eas to re­place lost fat and can also be used to fill in lines, wrinkles and folds.
