Ask Kaylin: Alternatives to Collagen Fillers

Lines such as Earth Science
Active Age Defense are targeted
toward mature skin solutions.
While I am not a licensed esthetician, occasionally I get asked questions about skin care. I had one recently on Facebook about a treatment for wrinkles. I don't have much experience with these products personally, so I did some research to help.

Kaylin, do you have a recommendation for facial fillers, collagen fillers, or creams? I have a deep line on my forehead.

I'm glad you asked!  Collagen fillers can be expensive and have potential side effects, so I would look for a more economical and gentle alternative. While there aren't products that exactly mimic a collagen injection, there are a few products that you might find useful to reduce the appearance of lines.

For a targeted treatment, you could consider something like Acure Organics' Line Eraser. Although I haven't tried this product personally, reviews seem generally positive about the results. I wish it were vegan (it has beeswax), but Acure products tend to be gentle and use many quality ingredients, many of which are organic. They also don't overcharge for their products, which is another huge plus.

Another type of targeted treatment you could try is a serum. Both Acure's Seriously Firming Facial Serum and Earth Science's Cellagen Renewal Serum are affordable vegan options.

Finally, I have heard that a regular skin care routine is another way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Lines such as Earth Science's Active Age Defense and other gentle, anti-aging lines can be a good place to start.
