What is Hyaluronic Acid and How Can It Benefit Me?

Wrinkles and dry skin are familiar with age — but you don’t have to surrender to these issues. Aesthetics and cosmetics have come a long way, with many products containing hyaluronic acid for an easy fix.

Hyaluronic acid helps with various aspects of your body, from your joints to your skin. If you’re tired of seeing a dull complexion in the mirror, this substance helps.

In his Boca Raton, Florida office, Dr. Anthony N. Dardano offers the most up-and-coming aesthetic treatments to boost your confidence. If you’re dealing with aging skin, Dr. Dardano provides several types of hyaluronic acid fillers for a younger glow.

The facts on hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in your joints, eyes, and skin. Its primary function is to keep water inside your cells, which keeps your tissues continuously hydrated.

Your body produces hyaluronic acid as a slippery product that keeps your joints lubricated, eyes moist, and skin fresh and hydrated. 

As you age, your body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid slowly declines, which causes your skin to lose elasticity and hydration. It also affects the fluidity in your joints and causes dryness in your eyes.

Luckily, there are various ways to get hyaluronic acid into your body, including creams and serums for your skin. Topical and injectable products that contain hyaluronic acid are safe to use and produce dramatic results when used regularly.

How is hyaluronic acid used?

Hyaluronic acid is a versatile substance that has various uses throughout your body. From joint lubrication to wound healing, its ability to restore your body is incredible. 

Dr. Dardano harvests this powerful substance for cosmetic and skin care purposes. Hyaluronic acid significantly helps your skin in multiple ways, which helps you look younger and feel more confident.

You can get hyaluronic acid in different forms, each of which works differently on your body. Some of the available ways you can take hyaluronic acid include:

The route of administration is dependent on what you’re looking to achieve with hyaluronic acid. For wrinkles, fine lines, and hydrated skin, Dr. Dardano offers fillers and injections to provide you with noticeable results.

Skincare benefits of hyaluronic acid

Dr. Dardano has found that hyaluronic acid works miraculously to provide you with tighter, more supple skin. Healthy, hydrated skin is especially crucial as you age. There are various other benefits to hyaluronic acid as well, which include:

Reduces the appearance of wrinkles

When your skin is dry because of decreased hyaluronic acid, it becomes less plump and full. This allows fine lines and wrinkles to become more apparent. 

Hyaluronic acid provides hydration to your skin, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your skin and fine lines on your face.

Hydrates your skin

Hyaluronic acid’s main job is to trap water in your cells. Using it on your skin helps retain moisture, which has several benefits in itself. Hydrated skin appears younger and generally looks healthier than dry and flaky skin.

Provides protection

When your skin is dry, the decreased hydration affects the protective barrier. Dry skin is more vulnerable to infection and damage from external sources. 

Hydrated skin creates an intact skin barrier, protecting your skin from harmful irritants and bacteria.

Tighter appearing skin

Under hydrated skin loses volume over time, which makes it appear loose and saggy. Hyaluronic acid fillers and injections provide your skin with needed hydration. When your skin is hydrated, it appears fuller and tighter, knocking years off of your appearance.
