When the skin is injured, collagen becomes a comment denominator in the body’s healing response. Collagen helps the body heal itself by preparing the wound bed, balancing wound chemistry, causing cell migration and growth, inducing granulation tissue, and improving overall skin strength. Collagen’s role in these various chemical, mechanical, and biological factors form an environment conducive to wound healing, and ultimately to wound closure.
For many years, the scientific community has identified collagen as a common element in wound healing. Research indicates that collagen plays an important role in the body’s natural healing response.
