Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and holds moisture in the skin – it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. That’s some serious hydrating power! And hydrated skin is plumper, firmer and more luminous. Hyaluronic acid also helps the skin retain collagen and increase elasticity. It’s really a win-win for skin.
Get your hyaluronic acid back
The good news is hyaluronic acid can be added back into the skin. Restylane® and Juvederm® are two non-invasive fillers composed of hyaluronic acid – the same molecule that is produced in your body. The fillers smooth away smile lines, plump up lips and restore lost volume to cheeks or the hollows under the eyes. Hyaluronic acid can also be applied to the skin with a serum or cream, and while it won’t provide the dramatic results of a filler, it will improve the skin’s hydration and texture over time. A beautiful, youthful you awaits!
