Regardless of gender or age, most people want to feel and look their best. This desire, coupled with changing attitudes towards cosmetic surgeries, is encouraging men to opt for cosmetic treatments to achieve a flawless appearance. They are actively turning to plastic surgeons or cosmetic doctors to get radiant skin, refined jawlines and a sculpted body. Several cosmetic surgeries that are popular among women are also appealing to a lot of men.
Our body’s most abundant form of protein, collagen is responsible for giving our skin its youthful bounce. But that’s not its only role; it is also found in bones, muscles, joints and even our blood vessels.
As we age, our collagen production begins to decline, leading to the formulation of wrinkles and loss of elasticity in the skin. It further causes skin thinning and sagging in both men and women. Unfortunately, this means more visible cellulite; bonier hands, knobby-looking knees and a crepey looking chest in women.
Health-wise, a loss of collagen can result in the overall stiffness of joints and possibly joint pain. Also common is a loss of bone and muscle mass with weaker arteries that may lead to atherosclerosis.

Botox and dermal fillers have become quite popular in correcting the some of the ageing changes our face may be going through. Our best results can be achieved by combining both Botox and dermal fillers.
