What is Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Ampoule Essence?
Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1,000 times its weight, allowing it to deliver long-lasting hydration and plumping to the skin. To hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, the hyaluronic acid molecules take in water from the surrounding air, drawing moisture to itself like a magnet. Hyaluronic Acid is also easily absorbed by the skin thanks to its small molecular size, allowing the molecules to penetrate quickly and deeply into the skin.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that encourages collagen production using tiny, sterilized needles. It may help smooth, firm, and tone skin and improve the appearance of scars, acne, and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid when absorbed into the skin after micro-needling, can aid in adding volume and providing nourishing hyaluronic acid to the skin. When paired with micro-needling, the repair begins almost immediately, resulting in softened wrinkles, scars, and a thicker dermis.
If you’re looking to improve the tone and texture of your skin, you can’t go past micro needling with Hyaluronic Acid as an amazing preventative anti-aging treatment. Microneedling, a.k.a. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) uses the skin’s own ability to heal itself. It applies tiny punctures to the dermis of the skin with a microscopic needle and this triggers the production of new collagen.
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that involves using a microneedling pen or derma roller to create microscopic holes in the skin’s surface, followed by applying a topical hydrating product directly onto the surface of the skin. The microchannels created by microneedling then allow the skincare product to penetrate deeply into the skin, hydrating it from within. This, combined with the trauma healing response in the skin that microneedling stimulates, allows your skin to produce more collagen and elastin whilst staying hydrated, giving your complexion a revitalized, refreshed look and slowing the visible signs of aging.
Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid serum is sometimes referred to as ‘wet needling’. We recommend only ever microneedling when using a serum, as the lubrication of the serum is going to help your microneedling pen glide effortlessly over the skin, preventing drag.
If you were to drag the pen along your skin without a serum in place, your skin would be far more prone to irritation and damage from the pen pushing too hard into your skin unevenly. But with serum, the pen can glide easily. You’ll find that you’re easily able to maneuver your pen across your face with even pressure to ensure you are preserving the integrity of your skin.
We recommend using hyaluronic acid when microneedling. When microneedling is paired with hyaluronic acid (which is a humectant and attracts moisture to the skin), it provides the added benefit of plumping the skin and providing deep moisturisation. This helps to prevent the visible signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body. It’s a humectant, which means that it binds to and absorbs water molecules – wherever hyaluronic acid is found, moisture is also present! As the hyaluronic acid molecules absorb water, the volume is created, similar to how a sponge soaks up water and becomes full. When you apply this effect to your skin, your skin becomes full and plump and evens out the fine lines and crevices.
This applies wherever we apply hyaluronic acid topically – so when you use a hyaluronic acid serum on your skin, your skin is then flooded with hydration. As we get older, our bodies naturally start to decline in their production of hyaluronic acid, so adding it topically to our skincare routines helps our skin to stay moisturized.
The degenerative effect of slowed hyaluronic acid production as we age reduces volume from the face, which causes wrinkles and folds to become more pronounced. Hydrated skin is effective at retaining its elasticity, which means that it’s less prone to wrinkling. The more hydrated you can keep your skin, the better your skin is able to keep up its production of collagen and elastin so you stay looking fresh and youthful.
Microneedling is proven to be highly effective at anti-aging on its own but when paired with hyaluronic acid, the results are even more profound in terms of plumpness and hydration. Microneedling with hyaluronic acid also helps to soothe and calm the skin post-procedure and limits the downtime of the needling process.
When hyaluronic acid is absorbed effectively into the skin during micro-needling, the cellular repair process of your skin’s cells begins almost immediately – this results in a softened appearance of wrinkles and scars, as well as a thicker dermis that is more resistant to new wrinkles.
