In the video below, Lovely Laban, Clinical Director at Skin by Lovely in Lake Oswego, OR, Camas, WA, Santa Monica and Portland, OR discusses hyaluronic acid, the main ingredient in dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane.
In addition to dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid (HA) can also be added topically to the skin. It 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 skincare containing this ingredient can improve the texture, feeling and youthful appearance of the skin.
When you think of a filler, we’re adding HA 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 HA, we sell several different kinds of hyaluronic acid skin care products. Contact your skin care professional at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica, Lake Oswego, Camas or Portland for more information, or shop online.
