Fortunately, HA is able to provide a conducive environment for stem cells to regenerate at a healthy rate making the skin appear healthier and smoother as well as speeding up the healing process of injured skin.

Typically, based on studies that have been conducted the recommended treatment regime is 2 sessions with a gap of 4 to 6 weeks between each session.
This cycle can be repeated after 4 to 6 months for maintenance of skin benefits obtained from the treatment.
However, in certain situations where there are more severe signs of aging or exceptionally dry skin, a third or fourth session may be required to optimize results before entering the maintenance phase. This decision is best left to the consulting physician to make according to their experience and expertise.
