Hi A, thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer a no specific medical studies exist that I am aware of showing the direct benefit of collagen tablets (using skin biopsies).

I am aware of a study that examined patient’s skin using a VISIA complexion analysis that showed general improvements in the skin with collagen supplement tablets. My advice is: if you can afford it give it a try and let us know.
