Sure, getting a hyaluronic acid injection can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. But are they really necessary, especially when there's a natural and more holistic way to increase the amount of this substance in your skin?
Although the results that most people get when having a hyaluronic acid injection procedure done have been rather noticeable, there's still a big debt as to whether or not they are worth getting. Some of the reasons why people do not bother with them are:
* They only provide temporary results, generally lasting between 4-6 months. Without getting another hyaluronic acid injection, wrinkles and fine lines reappear.
* They are rather expensive. A vile of HA can cost anywhere between $ 500- $ 800.
* They come with the risk of many potential side effects including, redness, injection, swelling, lumps, hardening of the skin around the injection area, acne, tenderness, as well as other unknown side effects.
I personally do not find spending up to $ 2,000 getting a hyaluronic acid injection 2-3 times a year worth the money, time, and hassle. This is ESPECIALLY true since it's possible to increase and reserve the amount of HA already in your skin NATURALLY!
Here's how the whole process works ….
There's an enzyme in your body called hyaluronidase. It's main function is to break down the HA in your skin cells. What triggers it's activity is the amount of free radicals in your skin, which come from various sources like UV radiation, pollution, poor nutrition, and the natural aging process. The more free radicals that are in your skin, the more active hyaluronidase is, and the more HA that it breaks down.
By using a topical skin cream or lotion that contains ingredients like Phytessence Wakame , you can actually stop the activity of hyaluronidase and reduce the number of free radicals that are found in your skin. Now who needs to get a hyaluronic acid injection when you can just apply a simple skin cream or lotion in just 2 minutes a day?
Phytessence is a once-kept secret ingredient of the Japanese. If you've ever seen a Japanese man or women that's in their 60s or 70s, you've seen that they have wonderfully smooth and youthful skin. That's because along with living very healthy lifestyles, they also use skin care products with Phytessence Wakame as a main ingredient.
