I know, I’m vain and shallow. Let’s get that part out of the way right at the very start.
But more specifically, I’m 38 and as such, my cells and collagen have started to betray me by not being as plump as they were in my, say, mid 20s. Rude.
Couple that with a baby under the age of one and a pretty rough 2020 (has ANYONE had a good year so far?!) and I felt like I needed to call in the big guns to help reduce the deep hollows under my eyes and overall make my face look a little fresher.

So, I had heaps of needles injected into my face in the name of beauty. It’s a treatment called Beauty Boost and I asked the expert who did it for me, Dr Jeremy Cumpston, to talk us through it.
A few weeks ago you injected a thousand or so needles in my face. Exactly what was it, and why?
"I used the device ‘V2 injector’ to deliver a product called Redensity 1," Dr Jeremy told me.
"Redensity 1 consists of a water-drawing sugar molecule (Hyaluronic Acid) + 10 amino acids and antioxidants including the skin brightening compound, glutathione. It’s unique in that it provides hydration to the skin, giving the skin a plump look whilst at the same time providing essential building blocks to create new collagen and elastin."
