Hyaluronic acid, what is it?
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, a glycosaminoglycan type, distributed widely throughout the extracellular matrix of most tissues. It is made through a biotechnological process of bacterial fermentation, extracted, purified, precipitated and dried in order to extend the duration of its effects on the skin.
Thanks to its extraordinary hydrophilic properties, it has the capacity to retain water in a percentage equivalent to thousands of times its weight, it provides a hydrated medium between cells, protecting them against abrasion and friction. That is why it is used for the hydration of the epidermis since it reconstitutes the fibers that support the skin tissues.
Hyaluronic acid, what is it for?
Moreover, It also stimulates the production of collagen by fibroblasts, which multiplies and prolongs its anti-wrinkle and aging-retardant action. It stands out for the filling effect it causes in the areas where it is applied, enhancing its use in non-invasive aesthetic treatments, especially in filling treatments and volume increase through infiltrations.
Hyaluronic acid is a powerful anti-aging agent capable of retaining large amounts of water in the skin, adding volume, scavenging free radicals, as well as reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
