The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
- Posted on: Dec 15 2017
Whether you’ve been getting dermal fillers from SKIN Medical Spa for years or if you’re interested in adding them to your must-have section of your Christmas list, there’s one thing that’s for certain: it’s good to be informed. Here at SKIN Medical Spa, we use a variety of dermal fillers to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to the face and mouth. Most of the fillers that we use like Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero are made up of hyaluronic acid. Which leaves many patients wondering, “What is hyaluronic acid and what are its benefits?”
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar that is naturally occurring in our bodies such as in the skin and cartilage. When it’s combined with water, it creates a gel-like form which can smooth and fill in fine lines and wrinkles— leaving you with smoother and more youthful looking skin in the process.
What Are the Benefits?
- It’s Natural: First things first, it’s good to know what you’re putting in your body and why. And, if you are the type of person who is extremely health conscious and likes to eat organically and clean, then hyaluronic acid is the right solution for you because, well, it’s naturally derived.
- It’s a Multi-Use Substance: In addition to hyaluronic acid being used for cosmetic purposes, did you know that it can also help patients find relief from joint pain? If you suffer from a joint disease, ask your primary care physician about hyaluronic acid and how it can benefit you.
- It’s Safe: It’s kind of scary to think about the different substances and toxins that we are unknowingly— and knowingly— putting into our bodies on a regular basis. However, when it comes to getting hyaluronic based fillers, you know that it’s safe, natural, and effective.
- It Lasts Long: Compared to other fillers and temporary procedures, one of the many benefits of hyaluronic fillers is that they last the upwards of a year on average— which in injection time, is a long time.
