Collagen Injections – How do they affect electrolysis?

Collagen is a natural protein that provides structural support.  Clients having had collagen injections usually have sun damaged wrinkled

skin or scaring from acne or other causes.  To date there have been no known undesirable reactions from performing electrolysis on skin

that has been treated with injectable collagen.  Areas on the face that are commonly treated are crows feet (lateral corner of eyes), smile

lines, marionette lines, wrinkles on the upper lip and other facial lines.  It is best to WAIT ONE WEEK before performing electrolysis on

skin that has just received a collagen injection.  Work can be done on skin over one fourth of an inch from the injected wrinkle or scar

at any time.  Electrolysis is not performed on collagen injected skin that remains red and/or lumpy or has any tenderness.  Always, if

a client has any apprehension about if her/ his skin be treated, I always recommend that you contact your doctor.
