“I gave up Botox after I had Hollie, for the last three years I haven’t bothered. Instead I’ve been having collagen wave facials with a wonderful lady called Nilam Holmes to plump up my skin.”
Collagen facials deliver ultrasound or radio waves into the underlying layers of the skin, encouraging the body to produce healthy, new proteins to replace the ‘old’ collagen. Gwyneth Paltrow has undergone similar ‘heating’ treatments that have taken “years off” her sun-kissed skin. Many dermatologists swear that collagen creams, treatments and injections deliver results but the youthful elixir doesn’t come cheap – starting at £150 a session and rising to over £1,500 for longer-lasting effects.
