Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a carbohydrate naturally found in the human body and known for its ability to retain moisture. In cosmetic surgery, hyaluronic acid injectables (such as Restylane and Juvederm) are used to soften and smooth wrinkles. In skincare, hyaluronic acid is an extremely popular and prevalent ingredient because it absorbs into the skin without leaving residue. Other benefits are as follows:

  • Moisturizes and plumps skin
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Firms skin
  • Reduces and prevents wrinkles
