Hyaluronic Acid — A Restylane Injection Alternative
For years now a medical grade hyaluronic acid (HA) has been dominating the plastic surgery field in the form of dermal injections called Restylane. This derma injection can plump skin, fill in deep folds, eliminate wrinkles, and stimulate the body to produce collagen. The problem is the results were only temporary and repeated injections were needed every 3-6 months to maintain results. In addition, each session could cost anywhere from $300-600 per injection site.
Recently, hyaluronic acid research has discovered a medical grade form of (HA) that is 3 times more potent than the one used for derma injections – like restylane injections – and Derma Prime Plus it can be applied onto the skin to obtain similar results.
Researchers found that when this topical (HA) was applied to the skin there was an 82% increase in fullness of the cheek area within just 14 days. After 1 month, study subjects reported a dramatic reduction in deep folds of the face.
Researchers suspect the immediate results are due to the ability of this ingredient to hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This helps to provide an immediate plumping of the skin filling out wrinkles and folds. With long term use, they found that (HA) can help stimulate filling skin fibers thereby firming up the skin.
Topical HA has been used in various cosmetic products for years with disappointing results. So, what makes this new form so different?
While, researchers won’t reveal their trademark secrets, but they do say the main difference between this new, potent, medical-grade topical HA and what’s been used previously, is the potency. Most cosmetic companies either use too little of it in their product or too low of a concentration to make a difference.
They claim to have discovered a way to produce a highly concentrated hyaluronic acid serum that penetrates deep into the skin providing dramatic results without any of the typical hyaluronic acid side effects and high costs that are common with Restylane injections.
