Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance commonly found in our skin, eyes, and connective tissues. This substance helps tissues retain water so they can stay hydrated and lubricated, and continue to function optimally. As we age, our bodies start producing less hyaluronic acid, which contributes to the development of facial wrinkles, dryness, and sagging skin.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a non-invasive treatment that can add hyaluronic acid back to the skin and reverse common signs of aging. Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, and Restylane Lyft are some of many hyaluronic acid fillers that can improve problematic skin conditions and help you achieve healthier and younger-looking skin.
Are you showing signs of aging and want to turn back the clock by adding hyaluronic acid to your skin? Here are eight exciting benefits associated with hyaluronic acid fillers.
1. Reduces Facial Lines and Wrinkles
Dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by plumping the skin. Hyaluronic acid can also strengthen the skin’s natural barriers to ward off and minimize damage caused by excess sun exposure, environmental pollution, and smoking. If you have a large number of facial lines and wrinkles or problematic spots (such as around the eyes, nose, or mouth), hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected into these areas to help minimize their appearance.
2. Non-Invasive Treatment
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be performed as a minimally invasive procedure or as a non-invasive procedure. Topical hyaluronic acid fillers are non-invasive because they involve the gentle rubbing of a formula into the skin, while injectables are considered minimally invasive because they involve injecting a needle into the skin. Regardless of the type of dermal filler you use, these treatments are far less invasive than cosmetic surgeries such as facelift surgery that involve incisions and long periods of downtime.
3. Hydrates the Skin
Hyaluronic acid acts as a humectant—meaning it attracts water and allows it to bind to hydrogen. Hyaluronic acid will draw in moisture continuously to keep the skin adequately hydrated, healthy, and youthful-looking. If you live in a dry climate or spend lots of time doing activities that cause skin dryness (such as sitting in the sun or swimming in chlorinated pools), dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid can keep your skin looking moist and supple.
4. Increases Skin Resilience
Skin that contains an adequate amount of hyaluronic acid tends to be more effective at defending itself against environmental pollutants such as vehicle exhaust and secondhand smoke. Hyaluronic acid can also protect the skin against harmful ingredients in low-quality skincare products that strip away the defensive barrier of skin.
5. Tightens Skin
Hyaluronic acid may not directly tighten skin like elastin (a protein that allows skin to resume its shape after stretching), but it can contribute to the appearance of tighter skin by adding hydration. Loss of elastin during the natural aging process can make skin appear saggy and droopy, but hyaluronic acid fillers can plump the skin to make it appear firmer and tighter.
6. Regenerates Skin Cells
The increased hydration and improved skin resilience that occurs with hyaluronic acid fillers can promote the regeneration of skin cells. New skin cells can make your skin look younger, healthier, and more vibrant, and further reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
7. Repairs Discoloration
Freckles, age spots, and other skin discoloration issues can often be improved with regular exfoliation and increased skin cell turnover. Hyaluronic acid fillers may also help repair discoloration by promoting skin cell turnover and the generation of new skin cells. Dermal filler products that contain both hyaluronic acid and vitamin C may be especially effective at repairing discoloration, given the way vitamin C may lighten pigmentation.
8. Smooths Skin
Skin that is scarred or pitted can feel rough, uneven, and scaly to the touch. Most hyaluronic acid injectables can not fill in scars; however, they can add volume to the face to make it appear plumper in spots that may be uneven. These dermal fillers can also address roughness to make skin feel smoother and silkier.
If acne scars and pits are one of your top skin concerns, ask us about the benefits of combining hyaluronic acid injectables with a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) facial. A PRF facial uses microneedling technology to boost collagen production, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
