  • Hey Dr. I just did first micro-needling with the dr pen and it left the needle holes in my face! My skin texture was perfect before and now horrible with some dark spots also. I know they will lighten in time but what can I do for the holes? PLEASE HELP!

  • I can’t see the difference between the before, 1 year and 6 months photos. I guess you can switch the photos with each other and you can still use the same conclusion to describe each of them.

  • Dr V, many thanks for the invaluable info you are making available to us! What is your opinion on Bone Broth compared to collagen supplements.

  • I found a collagen sourced from both bovine and marine I am excited to see the results. Thank you for your explanation of how things changed when you stopped using it.

  • Great if you want to pay a subscription monthly just to get the report, the public shouldn’t have to pay just to find out this type of information, especially if one product contains toxic levels of lead.

  • If you look at the serving size of Vital Proteins, you actually have to take 2 scoops for 20g of collagen. So you just made a shake with just 10g of collagen. Just FYI

  • I’m in the biz, and your explanation of collagen is the best I’ve seen! You are right, the skin is the least of the benefits of a healthy regime… It’s the whole body that benefits! Great job, you have excellent communication skills! My productd:

  • Grass fed collagen is best! But Vital Proteins from Costco is excellent. I also buy Garden of Life grass fed collagen strawberry lemonade powder and mix with water. I also just started youtheory collagen +biotin pills from Costco as well. The combination is working for me so I have options in how I take it. The pills can be convenient but also at times not and I prefer to add to water OR a add to a smoothie drink. I do see a difference and realized I wasn’t taking enough, now I’m trying to take more since I just learned I needed to take more.

  • I exfoliate my skin every day. I was just wondering how often to introduce chemical exfoliation into my routine. I struggle with adult acne and whilst physical exfoliation has helped I still need a bit more help.. thank you

  • I’m sorry but am I the only one that has an issue with how much of a difference make up changes someone’s face? Not say you but, you know some women just don’t look the same. Or how is that the same person. WTH. I saw a lady on the news that got some sort of plasma shrinking treatment, and it didn’t go well. She got scaring every where almost scary like. and she looked good before… why go through all that? But now she looks aged maybe after only a few years or even right after the procedure.

  • Hi Dr am new can take the powered collagen and is it good for diabetics and hypertension ladies to the collagen and will help with hair loss especially,thank you Roshni,SA

  • I subscribed i ll check more of your videos i hope there is good information there but you get thumbs down for asking for an email so we can download your guide.

  • Keep gaze on camera. DO NOT clap. Very loud on receiving end. Keep a list on a wall so you can remain on subject. Practice. And stop acting like a valley girl. You’re an adult girl not a teen. Info is great. Delivery needs help.

  • Could you view heliocare radiance white tablets, absolute collagen sachets and face theory which are the best for skin of colour.. you are so educated and know your products and it’s so lovely to hear.. love watching you videos don’t ever stop doing them Sarbjit Clair

  • Thanks for your experiments and the videos. Love your hair and I’m struggling with a routine for my curls. Are you able to share your curly hair journey? ��

  • Hello Dr vanita…. I m your new subscriber from India….
    Can u pls tell me any india substitute of this vital protein powder?????

  • Hi doc, good day I am new to your channel, may I ask what is the best collagen supplements for 40 years old woman. Also for my knee problem.
    It is my pleasure if you answer my question.
    GOD bless and keep safe!

  • Also, I thought that retinoids/ rertinols are not acids and do not exfoliate?! they’re great for turnover, yes, but exfoliants? ��‍♀️

  • I have the accent one but just the bone broth but it tastes bad. Can you give me a good one for RA AND FOR YOUR SKIN HAIR AND NAILS AND BODY

  • Thank you for your video which keeps us informed. My forehead is showing roughness and I have been rubbing extra moisturizer but can’t see any difference yet,and I can also see a little flabbiness starting to show in my cheeks. What brand of liquid collagen would you recommend?

  • In healthy individuals, with no intestinal permeability, peptides are not allowed to enter the body, but only in a form of amino acids. Based on the amino acid profiles of collagen, a 250gr steaks would have a very similar amino acid profile as 9gr Collagen. Why do you and the studies think that it will have more benefit then eating a 250gr steak instead of having 9gr Collagen daily?

  • I have a question,for hair not growing from the follicles will intake of collagen powder, biotin and folic acid make a difference

  • I used to use a gentle super soft spin brush for my face but stopped because youtube aestheticians said it was bad. I switched to chemical exfoliants and it was the worst thing I could’ve done to my sensitive skin. I didn’t get any chemical burns but my skin started to breakout wether it was lactic, glycolic, salicylic acid skin is wayyyyy to sensitive

  • I have been using cleanser with salicylic acid and wondering do i need to stop using cleanser with acid if i start using only acid itself without being mixed with anything?

  • I’m finding Tretinoin isn’t enough for blackheads (been using for 7 mths). I’m happy to drop it one night a week to use The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. How else can I incorporate another BHA 2% that I could use potentially every day?
    Would I have to use it in the AM? Or could I use it before the Tretinoin at night? Thanks!

  • no one ever told me that there was a certified doctor out there checking these. You don’t know how happy that makes me feel because it was a game of Russian roulette I’ve known people who have gotten sick from them everything now I’m on my third day at college and for some reason I ended up looking it up and also to thanks so thank you

  • I noticed the cheaper clarisonic knockoffs have heads that just spin. It cleans, but the clarisonic is so much smoother. Tons of brush head options.

  • I had dark circles and my eyes looked sunken. I looked almost dead.

    I’ve only just Started collagen, and the dark circles are gone. I look alive again.

  • Hi dr Lim love your videos! Can you do a video on Psoriasis please? Id like to see your opinions of the different things like biologics and creams and even maybe if laser does anything?

  • I have a question if ANYONE could answer.I really want to start taking collagen pills/ mixture BUT IM VERY ALLERGIC TO MSM(SULFAR) is there any collagen that doesn’t have MSM I can use. ANYBODY!!!

  • Great vid!! I always use collagen and my friends don’t think it’s important. So I’m sharing your vid 5 times today. You taught me the differed in the collagens. There are so many out there. Thanks again doc ����‍♀️

  • How do you part your hair like that? Mine is curly too but I can’t ever part it right. Its always in my face! Anybody know how she does it? Haaalp!

  • The problem is, you cannot get the answer to which is the best collagen unless you subscribe to the website and pay a monthly fee. I just wanted to know which one was the best, I don’t want a subscription

  • Okay I started taking the vital protein and my hair finally grew back after a traumatizing life experience (I lost about 20%). I had baby hairs like crazy I literally cried I was so happy to get my hair back. It could be that the exact time I started taking the collagen my body decided to stop stressing so hard but I find it unlikely.

  • That’s what I was worried about, stopping. I know companies want repeat business and it’s the “no longer continuing to take it forever” thing lol!

  • I’ve alway used physical scrubs so far like the Skinfood sugar wash off mask or the DHC scrub, but am wanting to switch to chemical. I just don’t know what product to start with, so this was really useful

  • Bovine species include yak, antelope, bison, water buffalo, and cows — but bovine collagen comes primarily from cows. To make it, cow bones or other cattle byproducts are boiled in water. After the collagen is extracted, it’s dried and powdered to form a supplement ( 4 ).

  • Hi doc may I ask is it safe to add collagen in your diet while breasfeeding?
    If yes do you have a specific brand you can recommend for breastfeeding moms?

  • Anceint Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein has 5 types of collagen I, II, III, V & X. At Dr. Axe website he sells it for $38.21 that’s if you order it every month. The container I use is the one with 459 g which comes out to a little over $.12 a gram. BioTrust also has five types of collagen which I haven’t tired yet, I see advertise all over Youtube.

  • the intro. is too long ��….anyway, collagen peptide is better is that the collagen you’re referring to? respect you for the before and after pictures…i subscribed!��

  • Very knowledgeable and thank you! The most protein your body can assimilate is 40 g in two hours anything more than that you just shed out of your system. Also vital proteins is very bad for your joints you need a collagen that is non-GMO or hopefully organic as well as a protein powder that is organic or non-GMO. Plus you have to stay away from dairy.

  • One of the most popular brands is Sports Research Collagen and I don’t see that on your list, is it possible for it to be tested as well? Also are there side effects to taking too much collagen?

  • Thanks for great content! What collagen booster did/do you use, and I cant wait to experiment with the two. At the moment I try a peptide and something has happend to my skin but can be the daily walks since new year too ��

  • The only reason I don’t buy it is because they sell it as ‘bovine’ collagen but use porcine because it’s cheaper. Most these people are just scammers. Make your own.

  • I am confused about the 20 grams of collagen with only one scoop of the supplement you used in your drink. The container clearly states that one serving (20 grams of collagen) is TWO scoops, not one. Therefore, your drink only has 43 grams of collagen as opposed to 53. Just wondering…
