Why Hyaluronic Acid Is Your Best Friend

Woman with clear skin Why Hyaluronic Acid Is Your Best Friend

Have you ever wondered how some people look like they never age? They have no wrinkles, no sagging skin, and their skin is perfectly clear. Some people naturally age well, but most others are increasing their body’s hyaluronic acid production. Using hyaluronic acid products or having Botox or Juvederm treatments, you will see a significant change in your skin. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute are here to share why hyaluronic acid is your new best friend.

What to Know About Hyaluronic Acid

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced substance in our bodies and stimulates collagen production, which keeps the skin tight. When you see a woman or man with an ageless appearance, it is the result of either naturally produced hyaluronic acid or a product that helps increase hyaluronic acid production. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This is when you will start to notice wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. Thankfully, there are ways to increase hyaluronic acid production and remove those lines, eliminate wrinkles, and tighten up your skin.

Reversing the Aging Process

You, too, can look ageless again! Increasing hyaluronic acid can be done through injectables and fillers such as Botox or Juvederm or everyday skincare products. Serums that are pure hyaluronic acid and are used consistently can help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, hydrate the skin, and add a natural glow to your look. Creams with hyaluronic acid can be used as a daily moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and ageless. Serums and creams are a cost-effective option that will still provide results. If you want to try a more permanent approach to reversing the aging process, Botox or Juvederm can help.

Botox can help with decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. As it is injected into the lines and wrinkles, the hyaluronic acid in it helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in no more lines and wrinkles and instead, a tight, taut face. Botox treatments must be done regularly to continue seeing results. Treatments vary in price, but results last up to six months.

Juvederm works the same way as Botox but is often injected into the cheeks or lips. When injected into the cheeks, the skin lifts. When injected into the lips, they appear more plumped. Juvederm treatments also need to be continued for more permanent results. Results from one treatment will last up to one year. Once you see the results from your hyaluronic acid facial products, Botox or Juvederm, you will understand why hyaluronic acid is your best friend.

It is important to consult with your dermatologist about the results you are looking to achieve. If you start with serums and creams, you can try Botox and/or Juvederm to see which treatment you like best and which gives the best results.
