Collagen injections are becoming more and more popular as an alternative way to not just improve the look of your skin but also increase breast size. Women love that collagen injections are low cost, low risk, and do not require an invasive surgery followed by a lengthy recovery time. Patients are usually in and out of the doctor’s office in no time and the results last several months.
That said, one of the downsides is that collagen injections don’t last forever and require a bit more maintenance than if you went under the knife for breast augmentation surgery. Even still, for many, the pros seem to outweigh the cons.
So this got us thinking: Can taking collagen supplements help increase breast size too? We chatted with a doctor to get the scoop on all things collagen injections. Keep reading to learn the answer.
So, can collagen supplements help increase your breast size?
The short answer: No. But, they do have other boob-enhancing benefits. “Supplements alone will not increase breast size,” says Dr. Henry Gasiorowsky MD, Greenwich Dermatology. “However, collagen supplements can help to firm up skin around the breasts which will make them perkier and less saggy.”
The reason collagen supplements can make the skin around the breasts appear more youthful is because “collagen is a protein which allows the skin to have elasticity,” Dr. Gasiorowsky says. “As we grow older, our bodies produce less collagen, so supplementing our intake of this protein can help to reduce wrinkles and improve complexion.”
So not only will collagen supplements help make the skin around your breasts and decolletage firmer and plumper, it’ll also help give your complexion a radiant, youthful glow too by reducing the appearance of any signs of aging.
What are the differences between collagen injections and collagen supplements?
The collagen in supplements, on the other hand, can be derived from many different sources. Anytime you put something in your body, it’s important that you do your research and purchase the highest quality out there to ensure that it’s good for your body and delivers the promised results.
Taut Premium Collagen Drink Advanced Formula, for example, features 100% pure marine collagen sourced from wild-caught red snapper fish from the Indian Ocean. This is the highest potency of collagen available.
The collagen in the Advanced Formulas has also undergone a hydrolyzation process, which breaks down the collagen into smaller amino acids called collagen peptides. Research has shown that these peptides are better absorbed into the bloodstream and are more effective at triggering the body’s collagen production.
In addition, it also stars other powerful ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, grape seed extract, and vitamin C, which will further help smooth out the imperfections of the skin around your breasts, boost elasticity and thickness, lift and firm sagging skin, and even help minimize stretch marks.
And unlike collagen injections, you don’t have to go visit a doctor or professional in order to see the results. All you have to do is sip one bottle of the Advanced Drink (which is sweetened by Stevia and has a refreshing orange taste) per day for 21 days in order to restore your skin’s youthful glow.
The other difference between the two types of collagen is the way they are taken and the way they affect the body. “Injections are applied topically and serve to improve a specific area of the body, whereas supplements are more generalized treatments,” Dr. Gasiorowsky says.
The other thing to note is that although collagen injections are low risk they do come with some risk. “As collagen is sourced externally of the patient’s body, there is a small risk of rejection by the immune system. Infection is also possible, as with any surgical procedure,” Dr. Gasiorowsky says. So if you are interested in collagen injections for breast augmentation, make sure you do your research and find a professional that you trust and uses high-quality collagen.
So there you have it. No, collagen supplements won’t necessarily make your breasts bigger, but they will make them look firmer, plumper, and more youthful.
And, your complexion will radiate to match.
