Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is one of the body’s natural molecules that the skin produces to maintain hydration. It works in the connective tissues to stabilize skin and maintain hydration.

As we age, hyaluronic acid decreases production and our skin loses the ability to retain hydration. That is a primary reason for the look of aging skin with its dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.

Hyaluronic acid can be recreated from a variety of resources including food, chemicals, and supplements. Hyaluronic acid can also stimulate the production of collagen, a protein in our skin that helps to maintain skin structure.

Hyaluronic acid is in some anti-aging injectable fillers for the face. Dr. Aboutalebi can help you decide if this is a good option for you.

Hyaluronic acid serum is a topical skin-care for all skin types. Typically you apply the serum twice daily to freshly washed and dried skin. You might need to use it for several weeks before seeing tangible results, but you can expect moisture levels restored; dry skin, fine lines, and light wrinkles revitalized, and skin should look softer and smoother. Hyaluronic acid serum can also diminish the effects of sun exposure on your skin; and it provides antioxidant protection against environmental elements that damage skin. It is good for all skin types.

Consult with Dr. Aboutalebi at Northstar Dermatology for which method is best for you: injectable fillers, hyaluronic acid serum or cream, or supplements.
