Injectable moisturisers belong to the range of tweakments which don’t yield immediate results. Instead, they work beneath the surface to improve the skin from within over the longer term. Injectable moisturisers are generally made from hyaluronic acid—a molecule that naturally occurs within the body, can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, and which supports the production of healthy collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Over time, your body’s natural rate of hyaluronic acid production decreases, which can severely hamper your skin’s ability to remain firm and plump. By adding hyaluronic acid directly into the deeper layers of the skin, your body’s resources are replenished, effectively turning back the clock to a time when the levels of hyaluronic acid were at optimal levels.
As I’ve mentioned before, this is not a quick fix and it can take a couple of months for the results to show. However, the studies and testimonials are convincing and injectable moisturisers have been shown to improve skin texture, hydration, and even fine lines and wrinkles. Effects tend to last up to nine months, though for the best results it’s advisable to have top-up treatments every few months. Choose an experienced practitioner who can advise you on the best course of treatment for your skin. Below are some of the top practitioners in and around Birmingham, but you can use the practitioner finder to find additional practitioners and clinics in your area.
Affectionately knows as Brum, this thriving metropolis is home to a wealth of national treasures including the revamped Bullring shopping centre, the infamous Spaghetti Junction, and the irresistible Balti Triangle. More recently, it’s also become home to a growing number of aesthetic practitioners and clinics offering a range of high-end tweakments. Why this growth? Well, it’s down to the general growth in the tweakments industry that the UK has seen over the last 20 years or so. Equally, it must be said that Birmingham has seen faster growth than other areas recently, to the extent that it’s only just trailing behind London, Liverpool and Manchester as a destination for tweakments. And it is a destination: clinics based in Birmingham and Solihull often receive patients from Coventry, Wolverhampton and Royal Leamington Spa, as well as from farther afield. This is because it has a number of great practitioners, the best of whom are listed below.
