Amazingly, there are still many people who opt for collagen injections rather than the safer option of using eggshell membrane skincare products. Collagen injections are a process in which collagen is injected into the fine lines and wrinkles of the face in an attempt to fill them in and create smoother, more youthful looking skin. This may seem like a perfect quick fix to many people but there are actually many risks involved, which seem unnecessarily when there are other methods available.
Eggshell Membrane Collagen Does Not Require Anesthesia
Getting collagen injections is an invasive process and it requires a local anesthesia. Any time that a person goes under anesthesia, whether general or local, there are risks involved, including allergic reactions and other complications. When you opt for the natural collagen found in eggshell membrane instead, you can take advantage of it through creams and serums, which are virtually risk free and can be applied as part of your regular beauty routine.
Allergies to The Collagen
Unfortunately, many people who partake in collagen injections do not do the proper research before they have the procedure. This can result in an allergic reaction to the collagen itself, which is being injected into their face. Most times, the procedure is done using a form of bovine collagen. If someone is allergic to other bovine products, it is likely that they will also have an adverse reaction to the collagen injections. At best, this will result in some minor skin inflammation but in some cases, it can cause serious complications.
The Procedure May Leave Scars
When you fill in your wrinkles and fine lines with collagen from eggshell membrane, you are simply applying a skin care product to the surface of your face. When you decide to have collagen injected into your skin, you run the risk of a scar at the site of the injection. This means you are simply swapping out one imperfection on your face for another one and may actually end up using eggshell membrane products anyway in an attempt to fill in and fade the scars. This can all be avoided by using natural forms of collagen in the first place and not going through the risk injection process.
