Are you a fan of hyaluronic acid?
If so, this is one treatment that you might fall in love with.
Instead of applying a dollop of HA and waiting for a couple of minutes for it to seep through your skin, you can opt to have the HA injected to experience maximum results.
First, know that topical HA can vary in its molecular weight. It can go as low as 20 kDa and as high as 1,400 kDa. The lower the molecular weight is, the better the absorption will be. This is why, not all HA available on the market produce the same effect. If the molecules are too big, they will most likely just sit on top of your skin. But by injecting HA directly into the dermal layer of the skin, you can be sure that the HA is absorbed. Plus, you’re able to stretch the effect for as long as 9 months.
However, the brands vary according to the technique that they use.
Best to find one that uses Vycross Technology where its HA content is a mix of (mostly) low and (less of) high molecular weight. It is this cross-linking technology that allows the material to blend into the different layers of your skin effortlessly.
Not only it’s good for hydration or moisture, but also for smoothing out superficial depressions including fine lines.
