The skin loses its firmness, it begins to get flabby, wrinkles appear more and more. For many women, the problem becomes so unbearable that they decide to resort to painful surgery. And the intervention can be replaced with less invasive procedures, some of which you will do at home, others in the beauty salon. Find out what they are!

Collagen is responsible for the firmness of the face and body skin. It is the main protein building connective tissue. It is characterised by very high tensile strength, it is an excellent scaffold for the skin. It is its loss that causes wrinkles – in places where it has disappeared, cavities visible just in the form of hollows. This process, without interference of modern medicine and cosmetology, is irreversible.
