How Hyaluronic Acid Helps You Look Younger

How Hyaluronic Acid Helps You Look Younger

Your skin begins to lose elasticity and moisture as early as your 20s, ushering the aging process. As elasticity declines, fine lines and wrinkles develop over time. Previous generations had to undergo major plastic surgery to effectively remove these wrinkles. 

Today, cosmetic injectables offer a nonsurgical solution for restoring volume and smoothing out wrinkles. At Westport MediSpa, board-certified aesthetic medicine physician Dana Brownell, MD provides the highest quality and latest advancements in nonsurgical beauty therapies, including injectables.  

Dr. Brownell recommends hyaluronic-based dermal fillers for addressing lost volume in the face. Our body’s hyaluronic acid production declines as we age. This causes a dry, hollow appearance, which can make you look older and tired. If you’re looking for a surgery-free solution for addressing lost facial volume, hyaluronic-based dermal fillers may just be the solution you’re looking for!

What is hyaluronic acid?

When it comes to keeping the skin moist and plump, hyaluronic acid is a key substance. It’s abundant in the skin, accounting for a significant portion of the skin's natural moisture-binding ability. It draws moisture from the environment through the top layer of skin. 

Because hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, much like a sponge, it deeply penetrates the skin with beneficial moisture to provide long-lasting hydration. 

Hyaluronic acid's ability to bind moisture is what makes it such an effective ingredient in skin care products. It can help to plump and hydrate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines when applied topically.

How hyaluronic acid helps you look younger

Hyaluronic acid restores a youthful appearance in multiple ways:

Replacing lost volume

As we age, the skin's structure begins to break down, resulting in a dull, lackluster, sunken appearance. This is especially noticeable around the cheeks and below the eye, where fat deposits beneath the skin decline. 

This loss of volume and structure results in sagging skin and hollow patches beneath the eyes, making you appear older than you are.

Providing facial structure

High, well-defined cheekbones are typical facial features associated with a youthful appearance. As a result, even if your face hasn't lost volume, cheek fillers can help to add structure and definition to your facial contours, giving you a younger appearance.

Plumping the skin

Hyaluronic acid works in conjunction with elastin and collagen to provide structure and tissue flexibility, and nourishes both collagen and elastin, preventing them from breaking down. 

As a result, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers not only help your skin feel rejuvenated and look brighter and healthier, but also support your cells. This can help you look younger for a longer period of time.
