Hyaluronic Acid

Definition: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural and essential moisture component of your skin. It lies within your connective tissue layers and acts as a support to your collagen and elastin fibers. It helps your skin stay plump and smooth because of its ability to absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water.

Starting at around age 20, our skin progressively loses its ability to retain moisture and we start to see the formation of fine lines. Using skin care products that contain hyaluronic acid can help your skin absorb moisture more effectively. In fact, the injectable wrinkle-filler Restylane, is comprised of mostly hyaluronic acid.
