    Hyaluronic acid is a part of our connective tissue that makes skin look plump; it retains moisture to the tissues and helps firm up wrinkles. Watch plastic surgeon Shirley Madhere, MD, explain the benefits of hyaluronic acid and where to find it. 
  • Results of human study showed that a hyaluronic acid product, Juvéderm Ultra Plus®, reduced the appearance of nasolabial folds (creases between the nose and lips) more so than a bovine collagen-based filler. Additional research is needed to confirm these early findings.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
