What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is the main constituent in popular dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane injected into the skin. It is also found in many creams/serums to be applied on top of the skin.
Skin cells actually produce Hyaluronic Acid naturally in a bid to maintain moisture levels. But, with ageing and the environment, these levels drop.
Applied on top of the skin or into the skin, it helps to hydrate the skin and maintain this hydration.
It is exceptional as it has the ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.
The substance works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much of it as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy and lines and wrinkles appear diminished. - 20 hours ago
