SkinMedica HA5 Before & After photo; 50 year old femaleWe are very pleased to announce the availability HA5—the newest and most advanced product in the fight against wrinkles.

SkinMedica HA5 packageDid you know there’s a difference between moisturization and hydration? Moisturization is the process of feeling hydrated, while hydration increases the water level in skin. This is particularly important because as skin ages, it loses its ability to produce Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a main source of skin hydration. In fact, between the age of 40-50, skin can lose 50% of the HA it once had at age 20. Paired with environmental stressors and aging the loss of HA contributes to rougher skin texture, diminished glow, and appearance of premature lines and wrinkles.

Why HA5

SkinMedica HA5 IllustrationI regularly recommend products containing HA to patients of various ages and skin types for its multiple skin-enhancing benefits and to improve skin hydration. That’s why I am especially excited about HA5, this new product from SkinMedica® that is the first and only rejuvenating hydrator that provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This hydrator supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own HA for overall skin health. Most topical HA serums only hydrate the surface of the skin temporarily, but HA5 is different as it is created to provide both instant and long-term rejuvenation and hydration benefits for all skin types.
