On the market today, there are several "miracle" collagen creams that boast the ability to replace or boost our collagen production, but to date none have proven to be the fountain of youth promised.
Fibroblasts are the most common cell in the body constantly creating collagen. Scientists have discovered that a certain fibroblast cell population in the hair follicle, even as we age, continues to produce an abundance of collagen.
Found at the back of the head, these hair follicle cells promise to do what no other product or procedure have been able to achieve thus far, increase collagen production and maintain the look of healthy skin.Recent clinical studies suggest that the injection of these cells into aging or sun-damaged skin can significantly increase collagen, reversing the impact of skin aging. http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/hair-follicles-hold-key-younger-skin-article-1.3436423
