As we age, the quality of the skin changes - as collagen and elastic fibres degrade, hyaluronic acid (HA) in the deeper layer of our skin is progressively being depleted. Our HA concentration reflects how "youthful" or "plump" our skin appears as it is important for skin hydration and firmness, and for promoting collagen production. Hence, a HA deficit in our skin results in rougher and dryer skin, skin laxity and wrinkles. The biological clock has an important role in this process but also lifestyle factors, such as exposure to sun, smoking and drinking all play their part.
HA replenishing lift is the latest development in skin rejuvenation. It creates a glowing complexion by gently and naturally smoothing the skin from within. By replenishing hyaluronic acid under the skin, this treatment restores hydrobalance and improves the structure and elasticity of the skin. It is scientifically proven to improve skin quality and can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
The procedure is simple and fast. HA is infused directly into the target skin layer and distributed evenly over the treatment area via a series of microinjections. Topical anaesthetic cream applied before and the use of a special fine needle makes it relatively painless.
The bio-compatible HA used is highly identical to that of our own skin's, and hence readily incorporated and metabolized by our skin's natural processes. The treatment is natural and safe with minimal downtime involved.
Over the next 1 week, your skin should look more plumped up and fresh as the skin's hydrobalance is restored. Over a few weeks, you will notice gradual improvements in your skin tone and elasticity, subtle lifting, and smoothening of fines lines and rough surface texture.
Although results are visible after the first treatment, a course of 3-6 sessions done at 2-4 weekly intervals is recommended in order to build up your skin's reserves for optimal and longer-lasting results. Maintenance treatments are typically done 2-3 times a year. It complements other aesthetic treatments such as botox, fillers and skin tightening for optimal synergistic results.
