The injections can be useful for those who have loose, crepey skin or have experienced a loss of volume around the eyes. Anyone over the age of 25 will find this beneficial as a preventative treatment, whilst those aged between 30 and 50 can see the greatest results.

How do injectable moisturisers work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body which attracts water and so has a great many moisturising properties. This is injected superficially into the skin and can be used as a standalone treatment or combined with others. It can help to firm the skin, making it brighter and evening out skin tone. Some injections will also include a combination of vitamins and minerals to give the skin extra nourishment and encourage good skin health.
