Hyaluronic acid can be found in many skin and beauty products from cream moisturizers to dermal fillers.
Why is Hylauronic acid so important and what are the benefits?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan found throughout the body’s connective tissue. Roughly half of the hyaluronic acid in our body is present in our skin where it binds with water to help retain moisture.
Hyaluronic acid can actually bind up to 1000 times its weight in water! This is what keeps your tissues well lubricated and moist, protecting the skin from damage and keeping it elastic and strong.
The sad truth is that as we age the levels of Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies depletes and we start to notice a decline in the youthfulness, texture and even tone of our skin. Our skin can no longer retain high levels of moisture and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. While this decline does occur naturally, it is possible to replenish Hylauronic acid by proper skin care that contains Hyaluronic acid.
One of the most effective treatments is Volite injections.
Volite is essentially an injectable moisturizer. Volite delivers hyaluronic acid and therefore moisture directly to and under the skin. After a Volite treatment patients will gradually see their skin quality improve and this will last for up to 9 months.
Skin that is continually nourished with Hyaluronic acid will appear and feel smoother and firmer.
