Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a polysaccharide present naturally in living organisms including human. Therefore, hyaluronic acid is biocompatible and not immunogenic.
Hyaluronic acid, your skin’s best friend
This precious substance is a naturally occurring element in cutaneous tissues, where it is found in the greatest concentrations. Young skin is smooth and elastic and contains large amounts of hyaluronic acid that helps keep the skin stay young and healthy.
Hyaluronic acid is a major, natural component of the skin matrix. HA favours the reconstitution of the skin barrier since HA molecules bind and retain huge amounts of water and provide an open hydrated matrix that facilitates migration of cells involved in tissue repair processes. In another word, it stimulates skin repair and regeneration processes, thereby accelerating wound healing.
How does your skin age?
After age 25, tissues become weaker and also the ability to produce autologous hyaluronic acid decreases; the skin metabolism slows down, there is a slower turnover of skin cells, and tissues become gradually weaker. The first visible signs begin to emerge, that become more noticeable with aging, the skin becomes much thinner and dehydrated, delicate and dull, and contours are deficient. As a result, the ‘Triangle of Youth’ is lost and the ‘Pyramid of Age’ forms.
Hyaluronic acid: how, where, why
Hyaluronic acid injections are especially indicated when lips lose their volume and turgor, thus making the mouth fuller and more attractive. They can fill deep nasogenian folds or reduce forehead wrinkles, as well as smooth out ‘crow’s feet’. In addition, hyaluronic acid is used for local injection to reduce acne or post-traumatic scars and for remodelling cheekbones, cheeks, chin, and mandibular profile. Sound scientific evidence has proven that hyaluronic acid, thanks to its ability to attract and hold water, plays an important role in tissue hydration and cellular function, stimulating the physiological production of collagen.
By your side, every day, naturally.
Hyaluronic acid has proven beneficial also in dermocosmetic products as the ultimate skin surface moisturizer, since it prevents dehydration and creates a favourable environment to reactivate vital skin functions, in synergy with medical-aesthetic treatment programs.
