Unique structures in the deep layers of the skin
Collagen is the most important structural protein in the human body. It has a fibrous structure and accounts for more than 30 percent of the total mass of all proteins in the body. Collagen is an essential component of bones, teeth, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and the skin. 80 percent of young and healthy skin consists of this structural protein.

Due to its considerable swelling capacity, collagen is excellent at retaining moisture – which in turn plumps, smoothes and firms the skin from the inside. External influences such as solar radiation, environmental toxins such as particulate matter, nicotine, hormones or diet disrupt the body’s collagen balance. In addition, collagen production already slows down from the age of 25 and continues to decrease over the course of life.


Noticeable all over the body
A collagen deficiency of the skin is quickly noticeable. The changes in the face are naturally particularly noticeable. But the neck, décolleté, back of the hands and upper arms are also often affected by a decline in elasticity. In addition to a limited regenerative capacity of the cells, the reduction of the subcutaneous fat layer plays an important role.

Consequences of skin aging
The stabilizing collagen fibers of the deep skin layers lose strength with increasing age and are more degraded – hydration of the subcutaneous layer deteriorates, the skin becomes drier and elasticity and tone are lost.

Where the mimic muscles are affected, the loss of elasticity leads to the formation of rest and expression wrinkles (laugh lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, worry and frown lines, lip wrinkles).

Hormonal changes
Increased collagen deficiency can often be related to hormonal changes. When hormonal balance changes during menopause or pregnancy, this can also have an impact on skin appearance and collagen levels.

Until now, the collagen contained in skin care products has only been applied to the surface of the skin – but this is not enough, as it only remains in the top layer of the skin. This is because the breakdown of collagen and hyaluron takes place predominantly in the deep layers of the skin. The bioactive ingredients in the ELASTEN® drinking ampoules reach these skin layers via the bloodstream (especially the middle skin layer, dermis).


The [HC]-collagen complex® contained in the drinking ampoules of ELASTEN® has been proven to increase skin density and thickness, leading to an improvement in connective tissue. Current studies have shown that there is an increase in collagen and elastin in the skin after only eight weeks of use, and after 12 weeks there is a significant improvement in skin structures and especially skin elasticity.

Thus, with the intake of ELASTEN® , elasticity improved by up to 31% and firmness also increased by up to 48%. In order to improve the appearance of the connective tissue, the intake of ELASTEN® should be started at an early stage. Due to the very good tolerability, a cure of several months can be carried out with ELASTEN® – or it can also be taken permanently.
