Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that naturally occurs in the body to help tissues retain moisture. The skin contains a significant amount of the body’s hyaluronic acid, which binds to water and keeps skin hydrated. Although this substance is produced naturally by the body, the natural aging process and other factors—like sun damage, smoking, and pollution—can cause it to gradually be depleted. As this occurs, lines and wrinkles can become more pronounced due to the skin losing its youthful plumpness.
To help combat the gradual decrease of hyaluronic acid in our skin as we age, the substance can be taken as an oral supplement, applied topically, or injected into the skin. This ingredient has become an incredibly popular way to revitalize the skin through hydration. At the Dermlounge, our team offers professional-grade skin care products, such as the SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, to allow patients to work the anti-aging ingredient into their daily skin care regimen. For those wanting more significant improvement in their skin, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® can be administered to help restore lost volume and smooth wrinkles in different facial areas. These injections can create a younger-looking facial appearance that lasts for several months.
