About Skin & Collagen Treatments at Prèface Cosmetic


Collagen is the scaffolding of the skin and connects the muscles for facial expression to the overlying skin. As we age, the collagen tends to degenerate and lose its elasticity allowing facial skin to sag and form wrinkle lines. Prèface Cosmetic has several treatments available to allow regeneration of collagen.


At Prèface Cosmetic we have a wide range of skin & collagen treatments for you to choose from depending on your beautification goals. These include Pelleve, ThermageOmnilux Lights, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), Dermasweep Microdermabrasion and Dermapen Advanced Skin Needling.
