Why Does The Beauty Industry Love Hyaluronic acid?

Have you ever wondered why when it comes to anti-aging ‘Hyaluronic Acid’ is at the top of the list??

Hyaluronic acid -is a molecule that is naturally found in our SKIN and connective tissue. This naturally occurring polysaccharide, acts as a hydrating and lubrication agent for our joints, hair, SKIN, nerves and eyes. The reason Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is so unique (and loved by the beauty industry) is because of its amazing ability to retain moisture. In fact in humans, Hyaluronic Acid is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water. This results in the binding of moisture in the skin.

Unfortunately our skins naturally occurring HA starts to deteriorate over time. This is due to general ageing, sun damage and environmental factors. Also, with age molecules in our skin lose some of their ability to bind and retain water. This not only causes dryness, and wrinkles but also a decrease in the skin’s volume.

A decrease in our skins moisture level is one of the main culprits of aging skin. This is why HA (which attracts moisture)—is a must-have when it comes to repairing the skin’s moisture barrier, preventing epidermis water loss and also restoring volume loss. It also helps retain collagen, and provide elasticity and flexibility.

Today, HA is incorporated into different anti-aging beauty and health care products — you can now buy hyaluronic acid serums and specialist Registered Nurses, Doctors and Dermatologist even offer HA in injection form (dermal fillers / Beauty Boosters).

Interestingly ….studies have shown that wrinkles and fine lines are usually more visible in low humidity compared to high humidity environments. This is because low humidity reduces the water-holding capacity and elasticity of the skin. 

Hyaluronic Acid Injections AKA Dermal Fillers

It is because of the depletion in HA (as we age) that specialists Registered Nurses or Doctors often inject hyaluronic acid fillers into the epidermis to replenish the loss of volume and structure. 

There are different types of HA filler’s ranging from ‘thicker / denser’ fillers which are used to mimic bone structure or restore volume to larger areas, and there are thinner / ‘softer’ fillers that are used to mimic softer tissue (such as lips). The longevity of a hyaluronic acid filler is determined by the amount of cross-linking of the gel molecules. The more cross-linked the product the ‘harder’ it can be and longer it will last. Typically Dermal Filler product longevity will range from 6 – 15 months.

There is also a more recent form of HA (which is combined with specific high quality skin nutrients) that can be injected more superficial into the dermis to hydrate and replenish. See here for more details.

Note:- All HA injections must be administered by specially trained experienced Doctors or Registered Nurses only.

Topical Serums

Different brands contain varying concentrations and types of HA molecules. Studies have found that daily topical application of good quality HA serums can lead to significant improvement in skin hydration, wrinkle appearance and elasticity.

The Game Changer for Skin

 

Is your complexion dull? Is your skin dry? Or thinning with age? Are dreaded lines and wrinkles appearing? If you are looking for a treatment to repair, hydrate and plump up your skin, the Beauty Booster (by Mondeal Aesthetics) could be the solution for you.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally present in our body and performs a fundamental role in keeping our skin healthy and looking youthful. See here for more amazing benefits of HA.

As we age, our skin can loose up to two-thirds of its hyaluronic acid pool. At age 35, the skins thickness has decreased on average by approximately 22%. This results in our skin being more fragile, thinner, less elastic and less hydrated.

What are the results?

The Beauty Booster treatment has a wide range of skincare benefits. The results are visibly lighter, smoother, and softer skin after a few treatments, while the effects are subtle and natural looking. Soon after the first treatment session the skin will appear less creased, more hydrated and supple. The treatment can asist those with Melasma

For optimum long lasting results, it is recommended to have 3 initial sessions, at 3-week intervals. Then for maintenance, a treatment once or twice per year is ideal.

Does the treatment hurt?

The micro-injections are shallow and performed with very fine needles. For added comfort the product does contain lidocaine. This is a commonly used local anaesthetic. A topical numbing cream can also be applied prior to the treatment.

Downtime?

On average, there is fairly minimal downtime. Directly after treatment the skin will appear pink and blotchy. Some people will have absolutely no bruising post treatment; others, particularly with very fragile skin, may experience slight bruising and blotchiness which can take up to 4 days to settle. Downtime is reduced after each subsequent treatment of Redensity [I] due to the dermis being repaired. We recommend Oxygenetix, a breathable skin foundation, to mask any effects.
