Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a remarkable water-binding molecule. It’s produced inside your body, and it’s one of your skin’s most powerful tools for staying properly hydrated. The thing is, your body’s natural HA can become depleted with time. And that’s when a hyaluronic acid serum can work wonders for skin hydration and rejuvenating your skin.
But, while they work well, most hyaluronic acid serums today tackle skin hydration from only one angle. They replenish the body’s HA. And that means you have to keep reapplying it. While there’s no guarantee that it’ll ever reinvigorate your body’s own HA-producing capabilities.
That is about to change, though. Because Lamelle has just updated Correctives HA Plus Serum. And there are three remarkable reasons it’s the most advanced hyaluronic acid serum ever. It even features an ingredient never before seen in the skincare industry.
Here’s what you need to know about hyaluronic acid and the NEW Correctives HA Plus.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID GOOD FOR?
Hyaluronic acid is a special molecule that can bind 1 000 times its own weight in water. It occurs naturally. So humans didn’t invent it. We just discovered that our bodies make it to keep itself hydrated. And this is not the “drink lots of water” type of hydration, no, hyaluronic acid hydrates on the cellular level. It’s one of the most important elements for keeping your skin youthful.
WHY IS HYALURONIC ACID IMPORTANT?
The hydration that hyaluronic acid offers is one of the five vital elements of healthy skin. (Along with a good balance of vital enzymes, collagen, elastin and fibroblasts.) It’s a key ingredient your body needs to maintain homeostasis, the balance that keeps you alive. To understand how important hydration is, take a look at our recent post on hydrated VS dehydrated skin.
THE MOST ADVANCED HYALURONIC ACID SERUM: CORRECTIVES HA PLUS (WITH DEEP MOISTURE CONCENTRATE)
Once again leading the way in advanced skin hydration, Lamelle has updated its Correctives HA Plus. Now with a special Deep Moisture Concentrate, the new serum uses three strategies to deliver superior skin hydration:
- REPLENISHES MAX HYALURONIC ACID IN YOUR SKIN
Newly updated Correctives HA Plus Serum contains four skin-compatible types of hyaluronic acid, for superior hydration:
- Cross-linked HA hydrates the surface of the skin
- Hydrolysed HA penetrates deeper, for deep skin hydration
- Acetyl HA lingers, for continued hydration over a longer period
- Phyto HA helps retain hydration by reducing water loss through the skin
The results? Improved water-binding ability in the skin (compared to other forms of HA). Improved skin elasticity within 4 weeks of treatment. And an increase in skin hydration within just 1 hour of the treatment.
- BOOSTS YOUR SKIN’S OWN HA PRODUCTION
Correctives HA Plus Serum also contains HAFi fragments (a range of very specifically sized fragments of hyaluronic acid). They stimulate the fibroblasts and keratinocytes in your skin to make their own HA. Plus: HAFi fragments heal the skin and increase the turnover of keratinocytes. They also stimulate more new fibroblasts (in the presence of growth factors), restoring these cells to normal, youthful function.
- A FIRST IN SKINCARE: FIRST PRODUCT WITH TWO HYALURONIDASE INHIBITORS
Hyaluronidase is a family of enzymes that break down HA in the skin. And, your body starts over-producing hyaluronidase with age, leading to skin atrophy, sagging and wrinkling. But newly updated Correctives HA Plus Serum is the first product in the skincare industry to contain two types of hyaluronidase inhibitors. They decrease this enzyme’s activity in your skin, protecting the HA in your skin for longer.
So, Newly updated Correctives HA Plus Serum now not only boosts HA levels and your body’s own HA production. It also guards against the breakdown of existing hyaluronic acid in the skin.
HYALURONIC ACID BEFORE AND AFTER
Before applying Correctives HA Plus, your skin might be depleted of its natural hyaluronic acid. It might be dry, sensitive and prone to fine lines. Not to mention that an over-production of hyaluronidase could cause atrophy, sagging skin and wrinkles.
After applying Correctives HA Plus, you’ll notice an increase in skin hydration within 1 hour. Studies have shown that your skin is likely to become more elastic within a week.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO TOPICAL HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid that you apply to the skin through a topical skin cream or serum, like the Lamelle Correctives HA Plus we refer to in this post, is very safe for almost everyone. There are no known side effects from applying the hyaluronic acid itself to the skin.
(The only time there are possible side effects is when a doctor injects HA as a dermal filler. And even then the concern is usually only if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. But this is a completely different kind of product than the one we refer to in this post.)
