Wrinkles and other face irregularities contours correction by means of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural and primary component of the skin. Owing to its hygroscopic properties, hyaluronic acid has the ability to bind large amount of water, in particular, is a reservoir moisturizing the skin from the inside. The acid also stimulates the production of collagen fibers and prevents the creation of free radicals.

Decreases with age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin which in practice often results in loss of elasticity and flexibility of the skin leading to the appearance of wrinkles. In a forty-year-old person, hyaluronic acid is estimated about half less than in a 20-year-old one.

Fillers based on hyaluronic acid have been used in aesthetic medicine for many years. The medical products which aim at the reduction and filling of wrinkles and furrows shall contain hyaluronic acid cross-linked with internal intermolecular bonds. The medical formulas available on the market differ in the degree of cross-linking, as well as the size of particles and the concentration of hyaluronic acid. The medical products with a lower hyaluronic acid concentration have a delicate consistency and are used to reduce fine lines. The medical products with a high hyaluronic acid concentration and larger particles have a more dense texture, so they are used to rebuild the volume in the areas of the sunken skin.

The effect of the treatment lasts from 9 to 12 months.
