SkinMedica® HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
Q: What's the difference between a moisturizer and a hydrator?
Q: What is the significance of SCE in VITISENSCE™?
Q: Is HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator oil free, fragrance free and non-comedogenic?
Q: The product contains whey protein. Is it safe to use for a person with a milk allergy?
It is best to determine if a patient has a true "milk allergy" versus a digestive intolerance to lactose when considering using topical cosmetic products that contain milk.
The whey protein used in HA5 is derived from milk powder. Therefore a person with a history of milk or whey protein that triggers an immune response should not use this product because they may experience an allergic reaction.
Q: How should HA5 be applied?
Q: How should HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator be used within a regimen?
Q: Is HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator a replacement for a moisturizer?
Q: How long does HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator last?
AS PART OF THE SKINMEDICA® FAMILY
Q: Will HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator work with any SkinMedica® product?
Q: Will products I apply afterward still be able to work (like TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR)?
Q: How does HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator compare to Hydrating Complex?
Q: How does HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles compared to TNS Essential Serum®?
HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator addresses the loss of HA in the skin. Its combination of 5 HAs works immediately to smooth the skin and provide hydration throughout the day on the outer most layers of the skin. In addition, HA5 supports the skin's own ability to retain hydration with VITISENSCE™ proprietary technology, a potent or "top" blend of antioxidants and peptides.
TNS Essential Serum® addresses skin rejuvenation in the deeper layers of the skin to improve the appearance of skin.
Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. We recommend people use HA5Rejuvenating Hydrator with TNS Essential Serum® in their skin care regimen.
Q: Does HA5 work on acne-prone skin?
Q: What is the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin?
Dry skin can be genetic or a symptom of systemic disease. It is caused either by the inadequate production of oil, called sebum, or by an imbalance of fatty acids, ceramide, and cholesterol in the stratum corneum, the barrier layer of the skin. Age is also a factor in dry skin. As we get older, we experience a decline in a main hormone that triggers sebum production.
Dehydrated skin still produces sebum but is temporarily dry because of various factors, including environmental effects such as a dry climate or use of harsh detergents or products on the skin. It is caused by a temporary imbalance of fatty acids and ceramides in the skin's barrier layer, resulting in a temporary spike in transepidermal water loss.
