Hyaluronic Acid The Holy Grail of Saving Face

Ohhh Hyaluronic acid.

We’d be lost without you -- binding water to collagen and trapping it in the skin promoting healthier more supple skin and speed wound healing!

Hyaluronic acid is not a peel. When we see the word "acid" our thoughts instantly incline towards dry peeling flaking skin (which is actually amazing for us). In all reality, Hyaluronic acid is a skin plumper, lifter, fine line reducer and has been know to speed wound healing.

This glorious ingredient can be used topically, sealing in its bountiful hydration with a moisturizer.

MN or Microneedling Hyaluronic Acid into the skin opts for a longer lasting effect. It supports our skin with a glow plumped, bouncy flesh. By swaddling your skin in a moisture soup we encourage neocollagenisis (a natural component of wound re- pair. the formation of new collagen results from an inflammatory response to injury) and slows aging. Wow. I need this.

Another method of using Hyaluronic Acid is injection. Lifting sagging skin, lip enhancements. Juvederm, Rystylane and others can come with bigger possible side effects. Injection into an artery, moving into an area that makes the skin sag further and can be found in the skin long after suggested time intended. When going for this type of procedure, I suggest checking with your provider that they have a dissolver on hand.

Topical Hyaluronic Acid is great for all skin types. It’s a non-irritating product and it does not trigger acne, rosacea, or allergic skin reaction. But, as with anything there is always small chance of side effects. Did someone say plumped skin?!
