What Is Hyaluronic Acid and How Does It Work?
Hyaluronic acid may sound like it should come with a warning label, but it’s precisely the opposite. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in your body. It is the fountain of youth that keeps your skin beautiful and hydrated.
The science behind hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid does not exfoliate or peel the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a water-loving sugar molecule. This sugar molecule is responsible for keeping your skin plump and hydrated, which is why it has become a product in very high demand. Quick facts about hyaluronic acid:
- Hyaluronic acid works best from within, which is why it is the primary ingredient in a wide range of dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm.
- By using hyaluronic acid as the key ingredient in a dermal filler, injections provide long-term hydration and natural-looking volume and plumpness that integrates beautifully into your skin.
If it’s naturally occurring, why do I need more?
Hyaluronic acid is abundant in your body when you are young. As you age, you produce less and less hyaluronic acid, leading to skin dryness and reduced facial volume and skin suppleness. We aim to fight the aging process by restoring hyaluronic acid to the skin. Not only will your face look and feel rejuvenated, but your skin will also feel healthier and deeply hydrated.
How long do the results from hyaluronic acid fillers last?
Results from hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last between six months to two years. The length of time before you need another treatment will depend on the type of dermal filler. Both Juvéderm and Restylane offer several formulas of HA fillers with varying gel densities. The densities were designed to be effective in various facial areas. For example:
- A lighter density filler would be used under the surface of the lips to create smooth plumpness.
- A heavier density filler would be used deep in the cheeks to create increased volume with a natural feel.
