Don’t let the name scare you!
Hyaluronic acid is not harsh or skin stripping. It’s a powerful moisture binding ingredient designed to keep the skin plump and hydrated. Naturally found in the body, Hyaluronic acid attracts water and thus adds moisture and creates fullness to the skin.
Ever wondered why a baby’s skin looks so dewy and plump? It’s because babies are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, the amount in skin diminishes with age which is why it’s important to restore the skin’s hyaluronic acid content by using a serum.
Through research and testing, SkinCeuticals has created two hyaluronic acid products that we have available at Associates in Dermatology. These products are considered to be non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) and non-irritating and can be used on all skin types and conditions. Even oily /problematic skin can benefit by assisting with healing and repair! Both of these serums can be used twice daily or as directed by a skin care professional.
- H.A. Intensifier. It’s a corrective serum designed to amplify skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. It contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid and botanical extracts of licorice root and purple rice that help to support skin’s hyaluronic acid levels and deliver surface hydration. It can help to improve the appearance of firmness, smoothness and facial plumpness.
- Retexturing Activator. It’s a replenishing and resurfacing serum containing a blend of hyaluronic acid and kombucha which can help to promote exfoliation by stimulating enzymes that help break the bonds that bind dead cells to the surface of the skin. Retexturing Activator has the resurfacing power of a daily 20% glycolic acid treatment.
Treat your skin to a drink of hyaluronic acid!
