Question: My son is asking for collagen injection in his lips as a birthday present. Are collagen injections recommended for person in their 20s?
Answer: As long as the patient meets the criteria for the injections and the result can be effective, he may be a very good candidate. The patient should be fully informed of the risks and benefits. The great benefit of modern injectables is that there are now a large range of injectables that are not permanent so the patient in the future can always just wait and the effect will be gone if they do not like the effect or they can always determine what they want to do in the future.
