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

About Skin by Lovely with Lovely LabanIn addition to dermal 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, like with SkinMedica’s HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, it helps provide immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to support the skin’s natural ability to retain moisture and providers long-term benefits!

In addition to dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, we sell several different kinds of hyaluronic acid skin care products. Contact your skin care professional at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica or Portland for more information, or shop online.
