Benefits of Glycerol Skin Booster

What Is Hyaluronic Acid And Glycerol?

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in our skin. It holds on to water to keep our skin plump and moisturised. It is also involved in cellular processes that keep our fibroblasts healthy. Fibroblasts are specialised cells that produce collagen and elastin. As we age, we tend to lose hyaluronic acid stores in the skin and our skin becomes dry and loses its firmness and elasticity.

Glycerol is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in our body.  It plays a role in skin hydration, elasticity and maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Glycerol has been shown to potentiate the effect of hyaluronic acid and increase its water binding capability by strengthening the hyaluronic acid complex.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend an average of 3 treatments spaced a month apart. Results vary from person to person depending on your skin’s response. BELOTERO Revive can be used together with other skin treatments.

The results last anywhere from 6-9 months. We recommend repeating the treatment yearly to maintain your results.

There are different types of hyaluronic acid on the market. High molecular weight hyaluronic acids are large molecules that have a greater water-binding capability. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acids are smaller molecules that have a lower water-binding capability. Our skin barrier is designed to keep unwanted pathogens out and topically applied high molecular weight hyaluronic acids may not be absorbed to the deeper layers of the skin, where it is needed most. Therefore, injectable skin boosters help to bypass the skin barrier to deposit the hyaluronic acid in the deeper layers of the skin.
