Hyaluronic acid, the molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, occurs naturally in our body but levels starts to deplete when we hit aged 26. Given that hydrated skin means plumper skin, losses in hyaluronic acid contribute to visible ageing – which is where treatments come in.
As well as being found in endless skincare products promising a short-term hydration hit, hyaluronic acid forms the most popular type of injectable filler used to temporarily fill lines, plus volumise the skin and facial contours.
Volite is the first injectable treatment that provides clinically proven dermal hydration for up to nine months after just one treatment. it will help iron out fine lines around the eyes, plus it “can also treat the neck, décolletage and hands,” but the results are subtle and it’s more about age-proofing the face instead of turning back the clock.
