In order to counteract the appearance of signs of ageing, like skin dryness, wrinkles, loss of tissue, sagging, one can use invasive procedures like injections of dermal fillers. Collagen injections used to be very popular during the 2000s but, mainly because of the origin of the collagen used, they have been replaced by hyaluronic acid injectables.
