Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
More Effective than Collagen?

The Benefits of Hyaluronic AcidThe benefits of hyaluronic acid are becoming increasingly well known as an effective anti-aging skin care treatment in the skin care industry.

Hyaluronic acid, or simply referred to as HA, occurs naturally in the body.

One of the principle characteristics of HA is its ability to retain water, which contributes significantly to the skin maintaining a youthful appearance.

Like many other essential factors, the levels of HA in the body decreases with each passing year.

As the levels of hyaluronic decrease it adversely impacts the skin's ability to retain moisture, thus leading to those inevitable wrinkles.

With its gaining popularity, hyaluronic acid is quickly becoming one of the active anti-aging ingredients to look for in skin rejuvenation products.

Although HA is becoming an integral component of anti-aging skin care products it is also used to promote healing, alleviate issues that develop with connective tissue such as joint movement as well as in treating some eye disorders.

Believe it or not, rooster combs provide the purest form of hyaluronic acid. Although a recent study has suggested that consuming an abundance of starchy root vegetables might play a significant role in slowing the aging process.

In skin rejuvenation, HA can be used topically or administered through tiny injections under the skin which produces similar skin plumping effects as collagen injections provide or used topically with a product such as Is Clinical Youth Complex.

Restylane, a non-animal form of HA, used for the injections was approved by the FDA in 2003 for cosmetic use. Restylane is considered extremely effective in achieving excellent results in reducing the appearance of wrinkles for six months or more.

Many actually prefer hyaluronic acid over collagen because the effects last longer.

Topically, the benefits of HA can be quite significant. Unlike topical collagen treatments, HA has the ability to be effectively absorbed by the skin as well as serves as an efficient "carrier" of other anti-aging ingredients to cells.  

That means that the active anti-aging ingredients are transported to the cells through the layers of skin.

As a result, hyaluronic acid is preferred over topical collagen treatments mainly because HA can actually reach the cells!
