GEMMA Collins has shared the secret of how she manages to “look 29, not 39” as she posted a clip of anti-ageing injections in her hands and face.
The star filmed herself receiving jabs containing hyaluronic acid on Instagram as she had a beauty sesh at her brother’s house.
The former Towie star said: “People always say to me, ‘Gem, you have such nice skin. What do you do?’
“The truth is I’ve been using Profilo and the London Aesthetic Company has been injecting me.
“I cannot express to you how life changing it is. It’s made me look so fresh, I cannot recommend it enough.”
Later on she added: “Guys has you know I’m 39 but I don’t look a day over 29.”
Gemma then filmed herself as she was injected into the face and hands.
After receiving her own treatments, she convinced her sister-in-law Dawn to receive her own treatment.
Dawn squirmed and screamed, but eventually gave in – and said the treatment didn’t really hurt.
Skin ageing is a complex biological process, but one element is a loss of moisture.
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule found naturally in the body, and is key to helping the skin retain moisture by binding to water molecules to keep the skin supple.
The hyaluronic acid that is used as a medicine is made by bacteria in the lab, or is extracted from chicken or rooster combs.
It’s found in lots of face creams, serums and dietary supplements and can also be given via injections too.
The London Aesthetic Company charges £350 for an injection and claims it lasts up to six months.
The GC is no stranger to injections and uses the controversial Skinnyjabs to help with her weight loss.
Gemma is said to have lost three stone after The Sun Online exclusively revealed she was on new weight loss plan SkinnyJab.
The TOWIE star even managed to keep the weight off during lockdown, where she once again thanked the Skinnyjab team.
However, Gemma came under fire from fans – who slammed her for promoting the “dangerous” jabs.
Experts have previously warned that they could be “life threatening” and should always be prescribed by a doctor.
Nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert previously told The Sun: “Any form of self-injection can be risky and an area that only your GP or health professional can advise you on, risk of infection, place of injection, the dose inside.”
