Around 50% of the Hyaluronic Acid found lies within the skin tissues of the human body. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that is present naturally in the skin and it helps to bind water to collagen, trapping it in the skin, so that skin can appear ravishing, blooming and more hydrated. HA (hyaluronic acid) is critical in maintaining skin hydration. Hyaluronic acid fillers or HA fillers can be used to improve the skin’s lineament and diminishes in the skin due to scars, injury or lines.
As we age, we start losing collagen & hyaluronic acid naturally, so the skin enters into the dry spell very easily, wanting to maintain youthful, healthy skin.

Topical hyaluronic acid can come in the following forms:
Lotions
Creams
Serums
Foams
