The hyaluronic acid is a protein (and not an acid as its name might suggest), which naturally exists in our body.
Due to its excellent hydrophilic properties, it can be well combined with water and will in turn fill out the intercellular spaces, thus giving it a major hydrating advantage (a hyaluronic acid molecule can attract up to 1,000 water molecules).
Its life cycle in our skin is approximately 36hours. It is then naturally turned over (degraded and synthesized) by a molecule called hyaluronidase.
When aging, the hyaluronic acid’s quantity which is contained in our skin decreases and its nature will be modified, thus altering its hydration and elasticity capacity for our skin.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, the hyaluronic acid is used in aesthetic medicine as a filler product.
A hyaluronic acid injection will enable correcting in an easy and fast manner certain aging signs and restore youthful volumes to embellish the face.
In filler injections, the hyaluronic acid molecules are crosslinked. This offers the hyaluronic acid a longer life in our organism, enabling the treatment to last between 6 to 24 months depending on the product used and the treated zone.
The product comes in the form of a more or less thick gel, which corresponds to its crosslinked characteristic.
The more the product is crosslinked, the more volume effect it will have. A less crosslinked product will provide less volume but will be very hydrating.
