The collagen that is generated by Fraxel is new collagen, is your collagen and is not temporary, but is subject to the aging process as is the collagen you had that has been improved by Fraxel. There is some ongoing metabolism of collagen we see in the human body in which old collagen does get broken down and new collagen manufactured.
