Acne blemishes can go deeper than what you see on the outside of your skin. When a blemish is large or you disturb it via picking or popping, leaving an acne scar that can be pitted or raised. Acne scarring can be difficult to treat, one option is to use injectable fillers, including those that have hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in skin, with the highest concentrations found in skin tissue. The acid is referred to as a “filler” because it works to inflate the space between collagen and elastin fibers in skin. The acid also naturally attracts water, which can make sunken areas of skin appear more voluminous. While hyaluronic acid injections have been used for many years in the treatment of conditions like arthritis, its application as an injectable filler for the skin for cosmetic purposes.
It’s particularly important to skin appearance because about 50 percent of the body’s supply is located in the skin tissues, where helps keep it plump, soft and supple. Our body produce hyaluronic acid declines with age, which can lead to increased dryness, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.
The hyaluronic acid molecules’ unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times their weight in water. One thousand! That’s more than any other biological substance.
“If you’re using a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, be careful. In very dry climates, this water-binding ingredient can’t draw moisture from the environment, so it may actually start to pull moisture out of the deeper layers of your skin.”
Hyaluronic acid is not a bad thing to use, IF it works for you and IF you’ve got the cash for it. There are certainly loads of people out there who love it. One great thing about HA is that it’s super-light and watery, which is a great benefit for anyone with acne-prone skin who is averse to creamy/oily moisturizers.
