Hyaluronic acid is a basic ingredient of tissue collagen in all living organisms. It gives elasticity and firmness to the tissues. The proteoglycans contained in hyaluronic acid can retain water molecules and give volume and moisture to the skin.
As time passes, hyaluronic acid degrades and skin hydration or “cracking” start to develop. With the help or biotechnology, hyaluronic acid is produced in laboratories with the safest methods and is submitted to modifications that increase its duration, the volume delivered and degradation time. It is available in various densities so that it may fit the needs of all types of wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body slowly and safely. This guarantees that after absorption, the treatment can be repeated so that the benefits of the first treatment can be maintained and the result may last longer.
Hyaluronic acid is found in our body in natural form. It provides hydration and adds volume to the skin. Natural hyaluronic acid degrades within two days. It is used by doctors in cosmetic treatments, in injections for the joints and in eye surgery.
