How does Pluryal work?
Hyaluronic acid tends to hold moisture, which in turn increases the tissue size and volume. Pluryal works by adding volume under the skin, which adds support and structure to smooth out the complexion. This is a great way to combat to volume loss and to sculpt areas of the chin, lips or nose. The cross-linked hyaluronic acid also ensures a longer duration of effects before being broken down and absorbed into the body.
