You may have noticed that hyaluronic acid is a key ingredient in many skincare products on the market today, and this is for a very good reason. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance which is found in various parts of the body, serving to keep joints and tissues lubricated whilst also ensuring our skin stays plump and hydrated. In the cosmetic industry, hyaluronic acid is known for its anti-ageing benefits, which is why it is found in serums, creams, injectables, supplements and balms from leading brands.
Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane are a leading aesthetic clinic specialising in non-surgical cosmetic medicine. If you’ve been thinking about having a professional hyaluronic acid treatment, here’s what to expect.
Where is Hyaluronic Found?
As a naturally occurring sugar molecule, hyaluronic acid can be found around the eyes, joints, connective tissues and in the skin. It plays an integral role, as it helps to trap water and bind collagen to keep body tissues, eyes, joints and skin healthy and hydrated.
As we age, hyaluronic acid production can slow down. This can lead to signs of ageing showing up around the body, such as fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet.
How does Hyaluronic Acid Benefit the Skin?
Whilst most people understand the role of collagen in skin health, hyaluronic acid is less understood yet just as important. Collagen and hyaluronic acid work in tandem with one another to deliver a healthy glowing complexion and plump, supple skin.
Some of the key benefits of hyaluronic acid treatments include:
Hyaluronic acid is remarkably effective at increasing skin moisture. It helps to trap water and bind it with collagen, resulting in healthier, more youthful looking skin. If you’ve noticed your skin looking a bit tired and dry, it may be worth trying some topical off the shelf creams which contain hyaluronic acid.

Moisturise & Strengthen the Protective Skin Barrier
Human skin has a barrier of lipids (fatty acids, cholesterol and ceramides) around its outermost layer, which serve to protect the skin and prevent the intrusion of bacteria and germs. This protective barrier can be strengthened with the aid of hyaluronic acid, which will help to trap moisture and maintain an even hydrated complexion.
Restore Volume to Skin
Dermal fillers are one of the more popular cosmetic treatments, and they consist of hyaluronic acid. This is a great option for those who have noticed a reduction in skin volume or facial structure due to the ageing process. Compared to a 19 year old, the average 70 year old has around 75% less hyaluronic acid. Cosmetic Doctor Brisbane offer tailored dermal filler treatments using the highest grade products, enabling you to achieve smoother, firmer and more voluminous skin.
Minimise Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of ageing, but their appearance can be minimised with the aid of hyaluronic acid. Crow’s feet anti-wrinkle injections are a popular treatment option, but treatment can also be done on other areas of the face. After treatment, you should notice an improvement in skin moisture and nourishment, which can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
People with acne who have very dry skin can benefit from hyaluronic acid treatments, which help to moisturise skin and reduce oil production. The skin produces oil to compensate for the lack of hydration, leading to clogged pores and the development of pimples. Following treatment with hyaluronic acid, many people with acne notice reduced oil production and an improved complexion.
