If we can currently talk about an elixir of youth then this without a doubt it is hyaluronic acid. It is because of this that in youth we have a smooth and in old age a wrinkled face. Hyaluronic acid works as a natural skin filler capable of binding water. Its disappearance is one of the main causes of skin aging.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid or hyaluronan (HA) plays a fundamental role in preserving the tension, elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Its antioxidizing effects protect it against free radicals, the acid supports formation of collagen and contribute to other important biological processes in the skin. The concentration of the acid in the skin gradually falls with aging. This leads to skin dehydration, which is the cause of its paling, wrinkling and further signs of aging. A regular supply of this skin acid of youth is therefore very important for its health and youthful appearance. In cosmetic treatment hyaluronic acid is supplied to the skin in two ways. The first is through conventional application using skin creams and serums. Its main disadvantage is minimal absorption into the skin. Hyaluronan molecules are so big that they cannot penetrate the surface layer of the skin. The second way is to apply the acid by injection of pure hyaluronan in the form of a gel to the skin. This method is highly effective and quick.
Methods of applications
Today we can use hyaluronic acid to treat small facial wrinkles. Injections can be given to shape the oval of the face and chin, fill the sunken face and shape the cheeks. Deeper nasolabial folds or wrinkles around the mouth can also be filled. Fillers of deep facial wrinkles, sags, shaping or enlargement of the volume of some parts are applied by a thin cannula. There is no need to make many punctures and the treatment is painless. Application of fillers also activates the formation of collagen fibres. A distinct effect of the application of filling materials is also deep skin hydration. An ideal method of deep hydration is the new Skinbooster method.
