In 2017, PCA SKIN® (Scottsdale, Ariz.) launched their Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum, which instantly became a sensation with professionals and consumers alike. Today, it remains one of the most trusted hyaluronic acid (HA) serums available because of its proven performance. Its unique three levels of action provide truly transformative results. And now the new Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask offers another clinically proven formula for even more visible benefits.

PCA SKIN’s signature Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum stands out among aesthetic physicians like Carolyn Jacob, MD, medical director of Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology (Chicago, Ill.), who recommends this product to her patients. Proven results are important to her practice, as she explained, “Clinical studies are essential to showing a product works. It means tests were done to prove benefits on water retention, skin texture, etc. There are a lot of products on the market with claims, but no proof. We like to see the science!”

The new Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask boosts patient results with radiance and luminosity. It works after-hours to deliver intense hydration and reverse signs of aging while you sleep. This leave-on treatment is formulated with two forms of HA, panthenol, niacinamide and additional natural extracts that provide ongoing support with increased dermal collagen and protein production.

Suneel Chilukuri, MD, director of cosmetic surgery at Refresh Dermatology in Houston, Texas explained the benefits of the mask. “HA is a glycosaminoglycan that is present in large quantities in our bodies including joints, eyes and skin. It is a natural hydration and plumping ingredient that declines as we age, so supplementation is beneficial for dry and aging skin. HA is beneficial for all skin types and age groups, but for patients with sensitive skin or eczema I utilize the Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask to increase moisture retention and keep skin function optimal.”

Dr. Chilukuri also shared how he incorporates the products. “Both Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum and Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask provide deep hydration, soothing and plumping to the skin without any greasiness or heavy feeling,” he said. “The Serum is an effective addition to any regimen and should be applied just before using a moisturizer. The Overnight Mask can be used nightly over the patient’s normal regimen or as needed for deeper hydration.”

One of the biggest barriers to compliance with skincare regimens is product consistency, but PCA SKIN helps patients overcome this issue. According to Dr. Chilukuri, “The HA Boosting Serum and Overnight Mask are cosmetically elegant as well as clinically effective. During the winter, many patients come in with extremely dry skin, but with these products, patients note a significant improvement in skin hydration and texture. Many are thrilled with the early results, so compliance improves, and patients return to purchase refills on these products.”

To round out full-face results, Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster is another option from PCA SKIN’s anti-aging toolkit. This unique product incorporates an advanced blend of dehydrated HA plumping microspheres for long-term volume and softness. Its proprietary ingredients boost collagen production and reduce visible lip lines. When combined with the Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum and Overnight Mask, patients will be delighted with the visible results these comprehensive home treatments deliver. As Dr. Jacob emphasized, “Making our patients look amazing is always beneficial for our practice. They are our walking billboards!”
