About HA5®Hyaluronic Acid and Your Skin

Hyaluronic acid is a natural, “water-loving” substance found in the skin—acting as your body’s natural hydrator. Hyaluronic Acid holds in moisture, keeping skin healthy, resilient, and supple. With age, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin decreases, diminishing your skin’s ability to remain hydrated. Between the ages of 40-50, your skin has lost 50% of the Hyaluronic Acid it had at age 20.

How HA5®Rejuvenating Hydrator Works

Topically applied commercial hyaluronic acid is unable to penetrate the skin and is rapidly destroyed. HA5®Rejuvenating Hydrator, however, is specifically formulated to penetrate the skin with instant (within 15 minutes) and long term benefits (8 weeks). HA5®Rejuvenating Hydrator supports the skin’s ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid for overall skin health. HA5® has a proprietary mix of five hyaluronic acid forms that smooth the skin, thereby decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. HA5® works synergistically to provide immediate smoothing and continuous hydration throughout the day.

Enhance your lips with the new HA5® smooth and plump lip system

Just like facial skin, the skin on your lips loses collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid over time. This can result in the loss of lip color (rosiness), overall lip definition, and contour. Unlike facial skin, your lips do not contain oil glands that help prevent the fine lines associated with signs of aging. Our Lip System leverages HA5® technology to smooth fine lines, enhance definition, and plump the appearance of lips.

Directions:

Apply twice daily as the last treatment product in your skin care regimen and immediately before applying a moisturizer (AM/PM) and before sunscreen (AM). Apply to face, lips, neck and chest or any area where fine lines and wrinkles primarily exist.
