Why Hyaluronic Acid is the #1 skin care product you need
Posted January 09, 2018
What is hyaluronic acid?
Did you know that your moisturizers sit on the top layer of skin? Over-the-counter facial moisturizers are beneficial in the short-term but what your skin may be longing for is the penetrating and replenishing effects of hyaluronic acid serum.
The word “acid” may be a little scary, but do not be alarmed. Hyaluronic acid is painless and boasts results in texture, firmness and its moisturizing benefits.
Hyaluronic acid serum is a booster that helps with moisture retention, thus keeping your skin more hydrated, plumper, and smoother. Not only is it a long-lasting moisturizer, but the deep layer penetration produces soothing aging effects to combat wrinkles.
What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid for your skin?
Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin hydrated and looking young. As you age, your body loses the ability to produce hyaluronic acid on its own, which in turn, contributes to fine lines and wrinkles.
As a daily moisturizer, hyaluronic acid serum should be used as the first product applied post-shower. Hyaluronic acid will glide on and trap the moisture in your skin leaving you with a smooth, moisturized surface for the remainder of your skincare routine.
With the dryness of Pittsburgh winter weather, hyaluronic acid can keep your face hydrated and firm.
In order to get the highest benefits of hyaluronic acid, you should book a treatment like microneedling, where our aesthetician, Tara, will penetrate the layers of your skin to induce collagen stimulation. She then will moisturize your face with hyaluronic acid, allowing for a deeper penetration of the serum. This will provide peak results for your skin.
Who should use hyaluronic acid?
If your skin has a tendency of getting dry or is beginning to show signs of aging, hyaluronic acid may help. You can apply it topically on its own or mix it with your favorite cream or serum for amplified results.
We recommend for best results, that you book a medispa treatment with Tara where she can administer the serum in the most penetrating way.
Before using hyaluronic acid, we also recommend that you have a complimentary consultation with Tara so she can evaluate your skin and discuss your skincare habits. She will work with you to determine the best regimen to get the results you desire.
