ok so people have been telling me one way to remove dented scars/ wrinkles is through collagen injections. unfortunately for $400 I think thats a little too pricey for me so I came up with an idea. what if I took a needle syringe, filled it up with a collagen booster, and did it myself. has anyone else thought of this or do you think its too risky?

Do not attempt such cosmetic procedures at home! Don't even think about trying it.

This is a medical procedure, and must be done by a licensed physician, in a clinical setting!

Please do not do this! Derma fillers are perfectly safe when administered by a qualified doctor with in-depth understanding of facial anatomy. It is very unwise to blindly stick a needle into your face with scant knowledge of the potential risks. Injecting into the wrong place could damage a nerve, and poses an even greater risk of infection. Infections can lead to abscesses which can result in permanent scarring.

I do not mean to sound harsh, but please reconsider doing this. I know $400 is a lot but it is not worth the risk.
