About HA

Hyaluronic Acid
and Your Skin

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, "water-loving" substance found in the skin—acting as your body's natural hydrator. HA holds in moisture, keeping skin healthy, resilient, and supple. With age, the amount of HA in the skin decreases, diminishing your skin's ability to remain hydrated. Between the ages of 40-50, your skin has lost 50% of the HA it had at age 20.

How HA rejuvenating hydrator works

HA Rejuvenating Hydrator supports the skin’s ability to replenish its own HA for overall skin health. HA has a proprietary mix of five HA forms that smooth the skin, thereby decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. HA works synergistically to provide immediate smoothing and continuous hydration throughout the day.

Enha5nce your lips with the new HA smooth and plump lip system

Just like facial skin, the skin on your lips loses collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid over time. This can result in the loss of lip color (rosiness), overall lip definition, and contour. Unlike facial skin, your lips do not contain oil glands that help prevent the fine lines associated with signs of aging. Our Lip System leverages HA technology to smooth fine lines, enhance definition, and plump the appearance of lips.

Moisturization vs. Hydration

"Many patients are surprised to learn there’s a difference between moisturization and hydration. Moisturization is the process of skin feeling hydrated, while hydration increases the water level in skin, and it’s the addition of water that helps to combat signs of aging."

- DERMATOLOGIST, DR. SABRINA FABI

The HA Difference

Most topical HA products only hydrate the surface of the skin temporarily. HA is powered by VITISENSCE™ Technology, a SkinMedica® exclusive technology that harnesses potent antioxidants found in Vitis Flower Stem Cells and other specialty ingredients to support skin's ability to replenish its own HA. The result? Healthier looking skin and long‑term hydration.

WHEN TO APPLY

Use HA twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. Apply HA after cleansing, toning, and treating your skin—BEFORE you moisturize and apply SPF (sun protection).

WHERE TO APPLY

Apply to face, neck and décolleté, or any area where fine lines and wrinkles primarily exist. Avoid getting in eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes throughly with water.

HELPFUL TIP

Because HA is a "water‑loving" substance, wet your fingertips prior to applying HA to your skin.

"My skin felt baby soft and supple after using it for just a short period of time."

Put the finishing touch on your skin care regimen

HA is ideal for all skin types and can be incorporated into any existing treatment plan designed to prevent and combat the signs of aging. As a daily smoothing product, HA can be paired with in-office cosmetic treatments that address deeper lines.
