Type I Collagen is the dominant collagen that lends structural support to our bones and skin. Although our bodies continue to produce new collagen daily, with age, we lose more than we gain. An excessive loss of collagen is associated with the development of osteoporosis, thinning skin and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the biggest obstacles to collagen replacement is the size of the collagen molecule. Traditionally, this has been accomplished through expensive injections which may be associated with pain, bruising and infection. The advantage of Hydroderm's Patented Collagen Delivery System is the unique ability to transport whole collagen molecules into the skin without painful injections.
