The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Skin Care

Hyaluronic acid has become quite popular in skincare, but just what is it and how does it work? Here, we will define hyaluronic acid, what it can do for your skin and if it is a good fit for your needs.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring molecule found in our bodies, most notably in our skin, eyes and joints. Most of the HA in our bodies lives in our skin. It gives our skin the flexibility it needs to stay pliable, but as we age, we lose HA, which takes away the skin’s ability to hold onto the moisture it needs to stay smooth and hydrated.

The Importance of Hyaluronic Acid

In addition to aiding our skin in retaining moisture, it actually draws moisture into our cells, much like a sponge. This is especially important in protecting us from damaging UV rays and the toxic effects of pollution. HA forms a layer of protection, keeping these irritants out of our systems. As we age, less HA in our skin gives these pollutants an entry point, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

HA can also tighten saggy skin by replenishing moisture to the skin. This will help mask the loss of your skin’s elastin, giving you a younger appearance. HA can make your skin appear smoother, reduce fine lines and can even stimulate new cell growth.

How to Use Hyaluronic Acid

HA comes in many different forms. Serums and creams containing HA can be used as a topical solution. HA can be injected into joints to aid in cushioning, providing relief for arthritis sufferers. HA can also be injected into the skin to improve and enhance the appearance of your skin. Creative Facial Aesthetics specializes in HY injectable treatments designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and give your skin an overall more youthful glow.

If you see more lines than you like when you look in the mirror, Hyaluronic Acid may be the treatment you have been seeking. The team at Creative Facial Aesthetics has the experience you can count on to give you the results you desire. Call (332) 223-6655 today, or visit us here to schedule an appointment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
