Not all skin issues have to do with the surface layer of the epidermis. The skin is a complicated structure and there are many components that work together to keep it healthy. One of those components is hyaluronic acid, an under-praised contributor to both skin and general wellness. The benefits of hyaluronic acid are many and here we describe a few of the most impressive.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring bodily substance. The chemically simple fluid helps keep the eyes, joints, skin, and other tissues properly hydrated, acting as a lubricant as well as a cushion in these critical areas. In the cosmetic field, it is typically found in high grade skincare lines and advanced skincare treatments. At Advanced Electrolysis & MedSpa, you will find hyaluronic acid in our GlymedⓇ pharmaceutical skincare line, result driven facials, and our JuvedermⓇ Dermal Fillers.
Unfortunately, with age, the body’s natural hyaluronic acid concentrations diminish. The effects of this loss are most keenly experienced in the joints and in the skin and can result in soreness and dryness. Fortunately, the substance can be taken as a supplement orally, topically, or ocularly to improve comfort and performance in the joints. Managing hyaluronic acid levels properly is beneficial in many other unexpected ways.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
The most transparent benefits of hyaluronic acid are experienced in the eyes, skin, and joints. While the effects of hyaluronic acid are under constant review, the current literature is very encouraging, suggesting that hyaluronic acid is a highly beneficial supplement.
Hyaluronic acid is most commonly used to improve skin hydration, acting in its natural capacity to lubricate and maintain the fluids in the body. Hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin and helps water bind to skin cells. This keeps skin feeling more rejuvenated and prevents excessive dryness, even in the face of conditions such as scleroderma and actinic keratosis.
Smoother Skin Texture
One of the most coveted benefits of hyaluronic acid is its ability to smooth out the skin. Hyaluronic acid can combat the effects of scarring, acne, sunspots, and dry patches. While achieving baby soft skin is a process that combines the use of many strategies—including quality skincare products, advanced skin treatments, drinking enough water, and getting proper sleep—hyaluronic acid plays a critical role.
No skincare product can truly stop or reverse the sands of time. However, hyaluronic acid can help create that impression. Safely high hyaluronic acid levels can reduce wrinkles and other age lines by moisturizing the skin. Properly hydrated skin is supple and more capable of quickly regenerating skin cells.
Alleviated Joint Pain
As mentioned above, the benefits of hyaluronic acid do not apply only to the skin. The fluid has holistic benefits, affecting the entire body. Hyaluronic acid can help limit joint pain because it works to keep bones lubricated. For those with osteoarthritis or those over the age of 40, hyaluronic acid can help improve the pain of bone grinding against each other.
Minimized Gum Disease Risk
Recent research indicates topical hyaluronic acid’s potential for reducing gum disease. Because the fluid improves and accelerates skin cell growth, it helps to heal wounds, so putting it on mouth ulcers or other oral sores can help to stop them before they become too severe.
Our skin has to protect itself from the environmental pollutants and toxins that exist around us. Hyaluronic acid makes the skin more resilient in the fight against toxins. Keeping such toxins from penetrating the skin gives skin a lighter, bouncier, healthier, and more youthful appearance.
Stimulated Skin Cell Regeneration
Hyaluronic acid helps promote new skin cell growth. New skin cells are stronger and less affected by toxins, resulting in a much healthier skin tone. New skin cells are also more resilient, so skin not only looks healthier, it truly is.
