Why Hyaluronic Acid is your Skin’s Best Friend
Dr. LeWinn’s understands that our skin is our most vital asset. When we look good, we feel good – but keeping it looking its best is an ongoing challenge as our skin changes constantly throughout every stage of our lives. Skincare basics are simply not enough – it’s time to get informed and take control of your skin. Dr. LeWinn’s has dedicated the past 25 years to understanding the science behind skin and developing specialist skincare solutions.
One of those specialist solutions is Hyaluronic Acid which delivers incredible skin benefits in conjunction with the powerful line smoothing peptide, Snap-8, both featuring as hero products in Dr. LeWinn’s Line Smoothing Complex range. Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate which is naturally present in the spaces between skin cells where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin. This skin saviour acts as a ‘moisture magnet’, it’s molecules have the ability to attract and retain more than 1000 times their weight in water.
As well as this, Hyaluronic Acid provides an antioxidant defence against environmental irritants and damage. Sadly, as we age and particularly after the age of 40, our skin tissue deteriorates and our body’s stores of naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid decline, leading to drier skin and the formation of those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting the levels of Hyaluronic Acid in the skin, Dr. LeWinn’s Line Smoothing Complex products are the quintessential alternative for those considering botox or fillers.
This is a smoothing, non-surgical filler that targets fine lines and wrinkles. Its key ingredient is a derivative of Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic Bio-Filling Spheres.This third-generation skin technology actively pushes out wrinkles from within. The spheres penetrate into the skin and act like a molecular sponge, swelling up to thirty times in 10 minutes, thereby smoothing wrinkles from under the skin’s surface and increasing hydration. The action of the Hyaluronic Acid is boosted by the smoothing action of Snap-8 and Argireline®, while Matrixyl 3000®, with its strong pro-collagen and proelastin function, works to increase the firmness and suppleness of the skin. Line Smoothing Complex Corrective Line Filler is best applied over serum and under moisturiser, targeting areas that need special attention such as the forehead, crow’s feet and laughter lines.
These high potency treatment masks are formulated with the power of Hyaluronic Acid to help retain moisture, instantly softening and plumping the skin whilst gently smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. LeWinn’s luxurious one step hydrogel masks are non-slip and mould to the face like a second skin leaving it feeling incredibly smooth. All the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid are boosted with high potency peptides, anti-oxidants and collagen, which are suitable for all skin types. The masks should be used once a week for an instant boost to the skin.
This line-erasing serum leaves skin smooth, plumped and radiant – again thanks to Hyaluronic Acid and a cross polymer derivative, Hylasome® EG-10. Hylasome is even more powerful with the ability to boost skin moisture levels five times higher than straight Hyaluronic Acid. The serum is packed with four other anti-wrinkle warriors - Snowflake Plant Extract, Fiflow® ATX, Liftonin® Xpress and Botox®* alternative Snap-8 – which all work to boost the elasticity of the skin and visually reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Instant Line Erasing Serum should be used morning and night after cleansing and toning. After gently massaging into the skin, follow with Dr. LeWinn’s moisturiser and eye cream. It may also be used as a light day cream alternative and used on its own for oily skin types. If fine lines and wrinkles are one of your key skincare concerns, take control and trust the Dr. LeWinn’s Line Smoothing Complex range of clinically advanced and potent treatments to look after your skin at any age.
