What is Placenta Collagen Injection?
Over time, the ideal levels of collagen that our bodies naturally produce begin to deteriorate; collagen fibres break down or no longer regenerate and this leads to skin "deflation" effect on the skin surface.
Placenta Collagen Injection is a produce performed by injecting collagen extracted from natural human placenta into the skin for the ultimate long-lasting firmness effect, with the skin activation effect accomplished by the collagen injected.
Dermal collagen consists of 2 types. Hence, collagen focused on this treatment is Collagen type I and type III at 1:1 ratio. Collagen type I and III together usually supports skin effectively as 19 amino acids (proteins) can be found in them.
Collagen Type I and III
· Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
· Improves elasticity
· Improves circulation
How It Works
Placenta Collagen Injection works by extracting collagen from the human placenta rather than from animals such as bovine. The treatment saves time from having to undergo screening or animal testing; also, it avoids potential risks that may occur as the placenta is obtained naturally from human, not considered a foreign material to the body.
Placenta collagen has the property of being absorbed into the body, and has the ability to regenerate tissue with the collagen type III present. The treatment helps to replenish youthful skin by skin activation, reducing the wrinkles and sagginess for the long-term effect.

2. Indicating the areas to be treated

4. Placenta Collagen Injection
5. Slight pressure applied to shape the specific areas
Placenta Collagen Injection Vs HA Injection
Hyaluronic acid (HA) Injection is the most common facial filler known that helps to fill sunken areas of the face and keeps it hydrated. At our affiliated clinic, a more advanced type of facial filler is introduced, called Placenta Collagen Injection.
Placenta collagen injection, unlike the HA injection, has essential growth factors that could help to nourish the skin and stimulate collagen production naturally underneath to maintain a healthy skin appearance. Other than the maintenance, placenta collagen injection has the ability to promote skin renewal as well.
Advantages and Limitations of Placenta Collagen Injection
· It is not a filler, not focused on synthetic lifting of skin
Placenta Collagen Injection Post Care
· Avoid long hours of exposure under the sunlight
· Avoid facial acids (Retin A, salicylic and glycolic acid) for at least 3 weeks
· Avoid putting pressure on the treated area for effective results
Q1: Is the treatment painful?
A1: Anesthesia tape will be applied upon request.
Q2: Why is Collagen Type II not included?
A2: The diminishing effects of collagen Type 2 are less obvious and often go unnoticed or are considered “normal” for the aging process.
Q3: Is there any difference from collagen taken from animals?
A3: The ratio of collagen extracted in animals are 95:5 %. While both types of collagen are esstial and synergistic, the ratio of 50:50 is needed, only the collagen in placenta has this percentage as it is used for the newborn baby skin.
Q4: How long can the results last?
A4: The results may last up to 6 months. The treatment can be performed with hyaluronic acid, which could last longer, up to 2 years.
Q5: How is it different from facial fillers?
A5: The treatment focuses on skin rejuvenation instead of lifting the sagginess, for the long-lasting effect.
