What is your skin losing as you age? (Part 1)
Hyaluronic Acid (HA): The Formula for Younger-Looking Skin
Naturally found in skin, hyaluronic acid (HA) acts as the body’s natural hydrator and keeps skin plump, firm and youthful. Between the ages of 40 to 50, skin loses nearly 50% of the hyaluronic acid it had at the age of 20. During the aging process, hyaluronic acid production decreases, leaving skin dry, dull and wrinkled. The answer? Replacing HA in your body through facial injections and topical serums.
Moisturization versus hydration. Moisturization is the routine leading your skin towards feeling hydrated. Hydration increases the water level in the skin. Water moisture is what helps combat aging and gives our skin the luscious appearance.
HA5. Drop the mic… HA5 is incredible. At Always Beautiful Medspa, we are in love with this product and focus to keep HA5 on our shelves as our clients are loving it, too, and grab a bottle as soon as it arrives!
SkinMedica created five different molecular levels of HA allowing every layer of the skin to be hydrated! It’s not just sitting on the surface as all over-the-counter products do. The HA5 formula is penetrating HA into all five layers of the skin causing immediate smoothing, leaving the skin feeling and looking hydrated throughout the day.
New Beauty Magazine says, “SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, a new topical hydrator, is compatible with all skin types. Unlike other moisturizers, this one works differently in that it contains five different forms of hyaluronic acid (opposed to just one) that are cross-linked with low- and high-weight molecules to really hydrate and soften skin for hours on end. This allows the formula to also smooth lines and wrinkles and boost the skin’s ability to reinstate its own hyaluronic acid. And, the visible plumping effects, like super smooth skin, are pretty amazing”.
It’s true! We are seeing immediate results in our patient’s skin! HA5 will enhance your skin’s appearance and overall health. SkinMedica explains that “most topical HA products only hydrate the surface of the skin temporarily. HA5 is powered by VITISENCE Technology, a SkinMedica exclusive technology that harnesses potent antioxidants found in Vitis Flower Stem Cells and algae extracts to support skin’s ability to replenish its own HA. The result? Healthier looking skin and long-term hydration.”
SkinMedica’s results show that “after 8 weeks of twice daily use, 91% of patients agreed that HA5 made their skin feel more refreshed and moisturized”. This proves that the more you use it, the healthier and smoother your skin will be as it begins to maintain its own HA hydration!
Lira Clinical Bio Hydra Infusion: Another reason why we love topical HA so much. All skin types can benefit from HA including dry, aging, oily, and even acne-prone skin. It doesn’t matter your age or gender. It literally is beneficial for everyone.
Surprisingly, patients with acne and oily skin can get very positive results using a HA hydrator. In fact, anyone who has oily skin and/or acne knows using a moisturizer is beneficial yet scary. It will help balance the skin, but acne breakouts are always a concern. Believe it or not, a majority of our patients have aging skin with acne at the same time. It can be frustrating not knowing what to use. Something that will not promote breakouts while balancing hydration and help keep the skin smooth and supple. No matter what type of skin you have hydration is necessary and HA is the answer.
For those of you with these common skin concerns Lira Clinical’s Bio Hydra Infusion Serum with plant stem cell technology is the perfect choice for helping skin maintain its natural hydration level. This HA serum is 100% oil free and packed with powerful peptides and nutrients your skin will love. In this natural HA hydrator you will find plant stem cells from the Swiss Apple plant, Sea Fennel plant, Alpine Rose plant, and Edelweiss plant. Colloidal silver and gold provide anti-inflammatory properties, wound healing, antibacterial properties, and provides a firming effect on your skin. This serum has been so popular we can barely keep it on the shelves! It is even safe and gentle enough to be used on post procedure skin such as microneedling, chemical peels, and dermaplaning.
For an extra boost of hydration it can be layered with SkinMedica’s HA5 for plumper and smoother looking skin in seconds!
Incorporating HA5 into your daily beauty regimen also compliments dermal filler and injectable treatments and helps smooth fine lines between each office visit.
