Optoderm HA Booster Serum
A blend of low molecular weight hyaluronic acids for needle-free plumping
HA Booster consists of a high concentration blend of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid fragments, in the range of 10kDa – 70kDa.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan (GAG), naturally distributed in human body. Hyaluronic acid is the major component of the extra cellular matrix. It is found in high quantity in the skin where it is produced by fibroblasts and keratinocytes. One of its main functions is to hold water in the intercellular matrix of the connective tissue. This water-binding capacity contributes significantly to the elasticity of the skin. Hyaluronic acid plays the role of water pump maintaining the elasticity by acting as a water reservoir.
Hyaluronic acid is also involved in tissue repair. While it is abundant in extracellular matrices, it also contributes to tissue hydrodynamics, movement and proliferation of cells, and participates in a number of cell surface receptor interactions, notably those including its primary receptor, CD44.
The second barrier of the skin, below the horny layer or stratum corneum, consists of so-called ‘tight junctions’. During ageing this second barrier is weakened. PenetrX facilitates efficient skin permeation of the low molecular weight hyaluronic acids in HA Booster. These are able to induce genes such as occludin and claudins which are involved in the formation of tight junctions in the upper part of the epidermis. Image analysis after two months of use, confirm the anti-wrinkle activity of this product, especially relating to deep wrinkles.

How to use:
Begin by thoroughly cleansing the skin and allow to evaporate dry. We recommend the use of one of our micellar cleansers, so as not to leave any soap residues on the skin.
Apply before other serums and allow to absorb for a few minutes before applying other serums and/or moisturisers. A “warming”sensation is normal as the serum penetrates and starts to work.
Apply small drops to the areas requiring attention, especially the main expressions lines, frown lines, crows feet, jowls and upper lip. Be careful to avoid direct eye contact. Lightly spread the product to cover the skin in a thin layer. A single drop goes a long way. Works best when layered with OptoDerm Balance, Revive or Rejuvenate.
