FAQ's

What's the difference between a moisturizer and a hydrator?

A moisturizer is a cosmetic cream or lotion made with humectants or occlusive or a combination of both that prevent skin dryness. A hydrator is a cosmetic treatment product that promotes epidermal health by supporting the skin's natural ability to replenish HA.

What is the significance of SCE in VITISENSCE™?

SCE stands for stem cell extract. VITISEN SCE ™ technology contains a proprietary antioxidant extracted from Vitis vinifera flower stem cells. Exclusive to SkinMedica, it is one of the key ingredients that allows HA 5 to support the skin's ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid for overall skin health.

Is HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator oil free, fragrance free and non-comedogenic?

Yes, HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator is oil free and fragrance free, and is appropriate for all skin types to give patients instant smoothing gratification and address the loss of hyaluronic acid through replenishment of the skin's own HA. HA 5 is considered non-comedogenic The product contains whey protein.

Is it safe to use for a person with a milk allergy?

Milk allergy refers to a common food allergy that results in an abnormal response from the body's immune system after consuming milk. Symptoms can vary from person to person but can range from wheezing, vomiting, hives and digestive problems. Avoidance in food is the primary treatment. 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 HA 5 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.

How should HA 5 be applied?

HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator should be applied twice daily — in the morning and evening—immediately before moisturizer in a normal regimen.

How should HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator be used within a regimen?

HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen to support hydration. It should be applied immediately before moisturizer in a normal regimen.

Is HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator a replacement for a moisturizer?

No, HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator should not replace a moisturizer.

How long does HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator last?

One pump applied twice a day will yield 8-10 weeks of product use.

Will HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator work with any SkinMedica® product?

Yes, HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen to add a layer of hydration. It should be applied immediately before moisturizer in a normal regimen.

HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen to add a layer of hydration. In clinical studies, HA 5 was applied prior to moisturizer and sunscreen. It should be applied immediately before moisturizer in a normal regimen.

How does HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator compare to Hydrating Complex?

HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator does everything Hydrating Complex does and more. HA 5 Rejuvenating Hydrator gives patients instant smoothing gratification and supports skin health through replenishment of the skin's own HA. Hydrating Complex contains 2 forms of hyaluronic acid, while HA 5 combines 5 HAs to immediately smooth the skin and provide continuous hydration. In addition, HA 5 supports the skin's own ability to retain hydration with VITISEN SCE ™ proprietary technology, a potent blend of antioxidants and peptides. Both have been clinically tested, and HA 5 was shown to continually improve skin hydration and appearance. Significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines and roughness were seen 1 5 minutes after application and after 8 weeks of twice-daily use.

How does HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles compared to TNS Essential Serum®?

Many factors contribute to skin aging and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Age defying skin care products tackle them in different ways. 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 HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator with TNS Essential Serum® in their skin care regimen.

Does HA5® work on acne-prone skin?

HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator is non-comedogenic.

What is the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin?

Dry skin is a skin type, while dehydration is a skin condition. In both, the skin undergoes transepidermal water loss, or evaporation of water from inside the body. With this water loss, the enzymes that normally help the skin shed cells can't function properly, resulting in a buildup of cells that makes the skin look rough and dry, contributing to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 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.
