Why Hyaluronic Acid is More Than Just a Buzzword

Why Hyaluronic Acid is More Than Just a Buzzword

The fads surrounding skin care products are abundant — and it’s hard to tell which ingredients actually nourish, replenish, and turn back the clock for your skin and which are myths.

There’s one indisputable star of the skin care world that experts agree on: hyaluronic acid (HA). Injectable and topical treatments containing this ingredient make your skin look markedly better. 

Dr. Sharon Gertzman and the Serenity Medical Spa team offer many beneficial treatments to patients with a wide range of skin issues, including those containing hyaluronic acid. Depending on what issue you want to address, hyaluronic acid may be just the right thing for restoring your skin back to its youthful glory.

What is hyaluronic acid, and why is it so good for my skin?

Hyaluronic acid isn’t hype. Your body naturally makes this substance found in your skin, eyes, and joints. HA is clear and gooey, retains moisture, and keeps your joints and tissues well-lubricated. 

Scientists learned how to manufacture hyaluronic acid, which you find in skin treatments and products. Its moisturizing qualities markedly improve the suppleness and appearance of your skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and addressing volume loss. 

In addition to topical treatments that contain hyaluronic acid, HA is also in injectable dermal fillers that enhance your skin’s firmness. 

HA injectable treatments deliver impressive results

At Serenity Medical Spa, Dr. Gertzman offers the latest in innovative dermal filler treatments that feature hyaluronic acid. 

We’re proud to carry the RHAⓇ Collection by Revance Aesthetics. It’s the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler for static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles and folds, those that emerge due to years of repetitive facial movements — think laughing, squinting, and frowning. 

Volume loss also leads to intensified nasolabial folds, the lines that go from your outer nostrils to the corners of your mouth, and marionette lines, which extend downward from the corners of your mouth. 

The collection consists of four products with specific treatment focuses:

Patients who receive these treatments like that they’re administered quickly and comfortably, the results last up to 12 to 15 months, depending on the product. The adaptability of these treatments means your care is customized to your unique aesthetic needs. You continue to look natural and like you — only better!

We also offer another exciting injectable treatment line, the Restylane® family of hyaluronic acid-based products. Restylane is a soft, injectable gel that actually absorbs 1,000 times its molecular weight in water yet gives you a natural look. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, boosts volume, and restores your skin’s contours.

Comfortable treatment sessions last about 15 minutes, and minor redness, swelling, and bruising resolve quickly after treatment. The best news? Results are instant and last five months to a year, depending on age, skin type, and other factors.

Restylane’s diverse applications add volume all over your face, including the nasolabial folds, creases between your brows and around the eyes, and marionette lines. It also addresses depressed acne scars that go inward, lack of volume on the back of your hands, and skin that needs rejuvenation on your neck and decolletage areas. 

Two other game-changing products we offer are Restylane ReFyne and Restylane DeFyne. We use Restylane Refyne to smooth out mild laugh lines around your face for a more youthful and naturual look.

Restylane Refyne is a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal that is designed to help support your natural expression for real-life results. Results can last up to 12 months.

Restylane Defyne is the superior treatment that helps smooth out deep laugh lines as well as enchance chin projection. 

Finally, don’t forget that skincare products featuring hyaluronic acid are the perfect complement to your treatment and help support your results. We carry the award-winning. ZOⓇ skin care line
