What should you know before getting a collagen injection for wrinkles?

ANSWER

Talk to your doctor about what you can realistically expect from your filler injections. One treatment probably won’t get rid of every line on your face. You may have slight bruising, redness, or puffiness at the site of the injections.

You and your doctor can discuss any priority areas to treat. Get an estimated cost for your whole treatment. You may need more injections to maintain the smoothing effects.
