As fall is in full swing and the temperatures are dropping, (except here in Texas!) we need to heat our homes.  This is when more people start to complain of dry skin.  SkinMedica® has an answer to dry skin, with their hydrating product, HA5.

HA5 is a clinically tested hydrating serum containing 5 forms of hyaluronic acid.  These different forms of HA work synergistically together to hydrate the skin, diminishing  the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  The product packs a punch of hydration for a light weight feeling product.  The HA is in a sustained release formulation which provides hydration throughout the day. Additionally, HA5 supports the skins ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid.  We lose HA as the years pass.  We have 50% less by the time we are 50 than we did when we were 20.  This product works well with other products and helps to retain moisture in addition to the moisture it provides.  In addition to the hyaluronic acid this SkinMedica® product contains Vitiscensce™ Technology, a combination of stem cell extracts, antioxidants, peptides and plankton extract.

HA5 has a light silky feel.  It is meant to be used twice a day.  Think of it as an additional dose of moisture during these drier months.  It can be used anywhere to boost hydration so don’t forget about your neck and chest!  The results will be softer, smoother skin with fewer lines.  Rough skin will appear markedly softer.


With continued use the skin improves even more,


This product is available at TOC Medical Spa.
