HH Science Needle Free Serum Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

HH Science Needle Free Serum is formulated to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping and softening them. I cannot compare its efficacy to that of fillers– because I have never sought out fillers– but I can say that this serum does temporarily plump the skin and therefore decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid plumps fine lines and offers serious hydration, and HH Science asserts that regular use improves/reactivates collagen and elastin synthesis. Niacimide is known to help reduce inflammation and the appearance of hyperpigmentation, as well as improving the overall texture of the skin, and therefore it works quite well in conjunction with Hyaluronic Acid. 

This clear serum has a watery consistency, it has no aroma, and it melts into the skin immediately. While I do not have deep wrinkles, I do I have some expression lines, and I definitely note a softening and plumping effect in those areas after using this serum for about 1 1/2 weeks. I apply it to my face and neck once a day, and as directed I avoid the eye area. My skin is left plumped, hydrated and luminous.

According to HH Science,

This advanced formula contains a powerful proline lysine copper complex, Hyaluronic Acid, and Niacinamide to fight against visible signs of aging and may improve the look of youthful skinThe revolutionary combination of ingredients delivers equivalent results to one injection of collagen filler in just two weeks of regular use by reactivating collagen and elastin synthesis.

Claims:

  • Reduces wrinkle appearance and volume by 15% in only 2 weeks
  • Firmness increased by 13 times in 15 days
  • A painless, topical alternative to Injectable fillers and toxins
  • 190% Increase in elastin production after 11 days
  • 179% Increase in collagen I production, and 194% Increase in collagen Ill production after 11 days
  • 85% increase in hyaluronic acid synthesis
  • 50% decrease in skin laxity after 28 days
  • Improvements sustained after two months of treatment
  • 80% inhibition of MMP enzyme activity (types 1 and 2)
  • Improves the skin's barrier function and shows a reduction in the appearance of rosacea over a 12-week period

Directions: Apply 4 to 5 drops onto your fingers and smooth over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Allow absorbing before applying additional products that can be used twice a day or as directed by a physician.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Methyl Glucoside Phosphate Proline Lysine Copper Complex, Glycosaminoglycans, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Leaf/Stem Extract, Pisum Sativum (Pea) Extract, Glucosamine HCl, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polysorbate 20, Disodium EDTA.

Overall Assessment: I really like the way that this serum plumps fine lines and leaves my skin hydrated and luminous. As noted, I can't compare its efficacy to that of fillers since I have never tried fillers, but I like the way my skin looks and feels after using this serum, and I assure you that I will use this bottle down to the last drop.
