Hyaluronic Acid – Is it really as good as everyone says?

The Answer is YES! Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is available in a serums, creams, supplements and injectables and is a very important part in the war against aging.

Hyaluronic Acid Binds Water

Hyaluronic acid is actually a sugar that binds to and absorbs water, it gives a fullness and plumpness to the skin and that is what we are constantly trying to replicate. Hyaluronic acid is actually a sugar that attracts water molecules to provide a plump, spongy effect to the skin. As water is absorbed by the acid, volume is created, acting in the same manner as how a sponge soaks up water and becomes full to even out every little crevice.

As hyaluronic acid degenerates, structure and volume are lost from the face, causing wrinkles and folds to become more pronounced. Just like the collagen loss, when hyaluronic acid levels drop, the skin has less support. Hyaluronic acid levels unfortunately dip as we age, and less of it is produced. The positive is the body is constantly making and absorbing it, just not as much of it as it once did.

Topical Hyaluronic Acid

Using a couple of drops of Pure Hyaluronic Acid serum (HA) under your regular moisturizer does wonders for your skin. The topical HA is so lightweight and will absorb quickly in your skin without leaving any greasy residue. Moisturizers containing HA like Ageless Skin Hydration are of course a plus for any skin type to fight the aging process.

Hyaluronic Acid can also treat burns, wounds and skin ulcers if applied topically.


Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid in dermal fillers or facial injectables deliver synthetic hyaluronic acid deep under the skin to grab water to replace volume and inflate lines and wrinkles. Voluma XC, Juvaderm and Restylane are three effective dermal fillers that are used on different areas of the face.



Voluma is used fill and lift your cheek area increasing lost volume. You can enhance lips and decrease laugh lines (nasolabial folds) with Juvederm  or fill under-eye hollows reducing dark circles and droopy brows with Restylane. The result of these fillers are instant and last from 6 months up to 2 years, depending on the area treated and which dermal filler is used.

Hyaluronic acid injections are also used for treating osteoarthritis of the knee, which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Some doctors have used the therapy on other joints, such as the hip and ankle.


Last but not least, Hyaluronic Acid supplements. The supplements help with the connective tissues in the skin, and cartilage, but are also very important in joint support and joint lubricant.

Hyaluronic Acid has been voted as one of the top supplements in joint and skin care by leading experts in the natural products industry.

There is also a lot of interest in the effects of hyaluronic acid supplements to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.”
