One of the more recent arrivals on the tweakments scene, yet already one of the most popular, is the injectable moisturiser treatment (a.k.a. Skinboosters). If you’re wondering what on earth an injectable moisturiser is, it’s a fluid, gel-like substance, usually made from hyaluronic acid, which once it has been placed beneath the skin, has a rejuvenating effect. You may have heard of hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient in hydrating serums which enable your skin to hang on to moisture. This ingredient works the same way from inside the skin, too, and encourages it to generate more of its own supportive collagen and elastic. Put together, the results — which should start to show around eight weeks after the first treatment — amount to what the scientists call a ‘bio-remodelling’ of the skin so that your complexion looks fresher and more lively.
Fine lines and wrinkles will be less obvious, and you’ll get back a bit of the glow and radiance that we tend to lose with age. Even better, these results last for six months — or even nine months, depending on the brand of treatment you choose — and achieve their results without changing the contours of the face at all. Many people even find it tightens their skin a little, which is why these treatments are popular for wrinkly knees and bingo wings as well as on the face. There are several brands of injectable moisturiser treatment available and plenty of great practitioners in the Glasgow area who offer the treatment; I’ve listed some of them right here, or you can use the postcode finder on the website to work out where your nearest practitioner is.
Glasgow is the epicentre of tweakments in Scotland. Here you’ll find a great deal of open discussion about the benefits of aesthetic procedures. While in London and Edinburgh, people tend to be more furtive about having ‘work done’, Glasgow is more akin to Liverpool or Manchester with their open attitudes towards enhancement. Is this a good thing? Absolutely. With so many people having tweakments nowadays, honest discussion around how to stay safe is desperately needed. The media has been slow to embrace this issue—choosing instead to focus on disaster stories—so the Glaswegian attitude is particularly welcome. Shining a light on this industry is what I spend most of my time doing, so perhaps I’m biased, but I can’t help but applaud this frank and honest approach. You’ll find some brilliant practitioners in the city serving those from Glasgow and its surrounding areas, including East Kilbridge, Paisley, and Hamilton.
