Collagen Supplement May Help Reduce Facial Wrinkles


The natural aging process generally produces lines and wrinkles, age spots, dull skin texture and color, and other skin flaws. A new study suggests that a collagen supplement may help reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.



Participants included 128 females between the ages of 39 and 59. Half of the participants took a supplement containing 300 mg of collagen derived from chicken sternal cartilage, 100 mg of chondroitin sulfate, and 50 mg of hyaluronic acid twice daily for 12 weeks. The other half took a placebo. A dermatological expert measured skin elasticity, trans epidermal water loss, and collagen content. The expert also visually graded participants’ skin by measuring facial lines and wrinkles, crows’ feet lines and wrinkles, and grading skin texture and smoothness, and skin tone.





The collagen supplement group saw a significant reduction in facial lines and wrinkles, as well as in the width of crows’ feet lines compared to the placebo group. The collagen group also saw a 12% increase in skin collagen content, and improved skin elasticity compared to the placebo group. In addition, the collagen group had decreased skin dryness and a more youthful skin appearance.





The study was conducted by researchers from AIBMR Life Sciences. It was presented on June 13, 2019 in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine.
