Hyaluronic Acid – What’s All the Hype?
Is your skin feeling dull and dehydrated? Would you like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? We have several solutions and many include Hyaluronic Acid.
Let’s start with a little background information. Hyaluronic Acid or HA, is not a true acid but a sugar that occurs naturally in the body and traps water in your skin – up to 1,000 x its weight – and binds it to collagen. As we age our bodies produce less HA, causing our skin to become more easily dehydrated. With hydration and tissue regeneration as its primary functions, HA is the perfect ingredient to use in fillers and skin care products.
As a board certified plastic surgeon, I feel our medical spa compliments our practice and offers our patients quality, medical grade solutions they can’t get at a typical spa. I use HA fillers because of its natural properties and how it gently integrates with our tissues. Unlike other fillers, HA is dynamic and moves with your skin. As an anti-aging mechanism, HA combined with botox allows the filler to last longer. With regular maintenance, the combination of simultaneous placement can extend the effects for years.
In addition to our fillers you’ll find HA in many of our Gurley Glow Skin Care products, creating a natural barrier between the skin and the environment and leaving your skin plump and hydrated. Proper maintenance of aging skin cells will help us keep that youthful glow. If you aren’t sure where to start or how to combine our products, give us a call and we will help you figure out the best home treatments for your skin. Healthy skin is beautiful skin!
