How many collagen or filler injections will I need?

ANSWER

One filler injection probably won’t be enough to smooth every wrinkle on your face. Just like natural collagen, collagen replacements will lose form and wear down over time. You may need 2-4 injections a year to maintain the smoothing effects.
