Scientific Beauty's Platinum Hyaluronic Serum: The Fix for Dry Skin and a Youthful Glow

Among the many products out there, it is often hard to decide on the perfect one, especially when it comes to skin care. Thankfully, research has perfected formulas that are far beyond our expectations. We now have a multitude of options, however, none compare to Dr. Lara Devgan’s Scientific Beauty Line. One of the most popular products from Dr. Devgan’s skin care line, Scientific Beauty, is the Platinum Hyaluronic Serum. As Dr. Devgan describes it, “No topical product can take the place of Botox or Juvederm, but this is the latest development in skin care technology that comes the closest.”

Platinum Hyaluronic Serum is the latest innovation in skin care. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, the substance found in dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane, and uses this to resurface and improve the quality of aging skin. We all want to keep looking young for as long as we possibly can, and these ingredients do just that.

Platinum Hyaluronic Serum contains hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, lysine, proline, and copper. This unique combination of ingredients triggers mitochondrial energy production in senescent fibroblasts. In so doing, it safely reactivates collagen I, collagen III, and elastin production. In clinical studies, Platinum Hyaluronic Serum has been shown to improve skin quality in as little as two weeks of regular use and has been shown to decrease skin laxity by 50% after twelve weeks of regular use. 

In addition to building collagen, Platinum Hyaluronic Serum is fortified with glycosaminoglycans, which preserve and protect the structure of the extracellular matrix from physical forces like pollution, UV rays, and aging, leading to an improvement in the skin’s barrier function. This is especially important as we are heading into summer. 

The ingredients of this product are so important to understand; the Platinum Hyaluronic Serum is like a dermal filler in a bottle. Dr. Devgan suggests going with medical grade products in order to get the benefits and results you are looking for. We hope this information will make your skin care shopping experience easier.

Facelift Scars: How Visible Are They?

A facelift is a surgical technique that restores beautiful bone structure to the aging jaw, cheeks, and neck. A good facelift leaves you looking like a younger, more natural, more subtly improved version of yourself- NOT a tightly-pulled, "windblown," different person.

Both men and women can achieve significant improvements from a facelift procedure. An appropriately customized procedure can make a woman appear more feminine and refined, or make a man appear more masculine with a stronger jawline.

As for the scarring, the modern era of plastic surgery allows scars to be hidden extremely well, so that they are nearly imperceptible, even from a distance of 1-2 inches.

Dr. Devgan hides her incisions in the crease in front of the ear or tragus. She takes care to prevent distortion of the hairline and sideburns, pulling of the ear, and hair loss to ensure a beautiful result.

Horizontal Neck Lines: What Are They and What To Do About Them

Horizontal necklines are a result of excess fat or drooping skin in the neck area. This creates a build-up of skin that creates folds where these necklines are created. Some feel that these necklines are a sign of aging and aren't flattering on their physique. 

With areas of fat around the neck, patients have the option of liposuction which uses extremely tiny incisions, about half a centimeter in length, to suck out the extra fat. Downtime for any liposuction procedure is minimal and results are immediate.

Another option for horizontal neck lines is to soften them with the use of injectables. Dr. Devgan uses a micro-droplet technique for a natural looking result to reduce the appearance of these lines.

For an excess amount of fat in the neck area, patients seek liposuction, however, micro-droplet injectables are a great option for those seeking minor changes that result in no downtime and soften the overall complexion.

This mask is recommended to be worn for a minimum of 30 minutes, however, it can be worn for up to two hours. It can be used three to five times, with approximately five to seven days between sessions, however, the effectiveness of the ingredients may decrease with each use, as these ingredients are most absorptive within the first use.
