Hyaluronic acid is used for many purposes as its properties are very helpful in treating a variety of problems. It can be taken either as a supplement or injected directly into the area that needs rejuvenation. Many believe in its ability to reduce the signs of ageing.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies. It is a type of sugar that is present between the skin cells in the body. One of the main benefits of hyaluronic acid is its ability to retain water, as it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This is one of the reasons hyaluronic acid is often used to help hydrate the skin, and can also boast great anti-ageing benefits. Not only does it work to provide hydration to the skins surface but it also helps the skin to retain water, staying plump and rejuvenated.
The benefits of hyaluronic acid
There are many great benefits hyaluronic acid can have on our skin, which is why it is often used in products and treatments. Hyaluonic acid is often used in serums and moisturisers to help hydrate the skin, and retain moisture. One of our favourites serums containing hyaluronic acid is the Derma Revive Hydrate Serum. Hyaluronic Acid is also a key ingredient in Dermal Fillers which work to smooth and plump the skin, helping to restore lost volume (a side effect to ageing).
At Reflect Medispa, we also have two new treatment options available that contain this miracle ingredient: The Premier Full-Face Refresh and the Anti-Ageing Hand Rejuvenation.
