In the video below, Lovely Laban, Clinical Director at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica and Portland, OR discusses hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane.

In addition to d fillers, hyaluronic acid can also be added topically to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is very plumping, so the function of it is to hold water in the skin naturally. We also lose it as we age, making our skin look more dehydrated. A combination of injectable dermal fillers and topical hyaluronic acid can improve the texture, feeling and youthful appearance of the skin.

When you think of a filler, we’re adding hyaluronic acid to plump up the lines and fill in areas to volumize. When applying hyaluronic acid topically, using our topical mixture from our Refinement line which also contains Vitamin C and peptides, it sinks in to hydrate and moisturize the skin. Our topical hyaluronic acid works well with other skin care products and should be applied nightly after cleansing the skin thoroughly.

Topical hyaluronic acid also helps with skin inflammation, such as those experienced after a chemical peel, sun burn and rosacea. It’s very soothing and calming to the skin, particularly with regard to skin disorders.

In addition to dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, we sell an organic topical mixture here at Skin by Lovely. Contact your skin care professional at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica or Portland for more information, or order the product on our website.
