What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a component (polysaccharide) that is part of our body naturally, we find it in joints, cartilage and skin.

  • In joints it helps prevent painful friction from occurring.
  • In cartilage it works as a restorative.
  • On the skin it acts as a MOISTURIZING agent thanks to its ability to attract and retain water. Did you know that it is capable of retaining up to 1000 times its weight in water? Applied to the skin and in contact with water, it acts as a kind of sponge that keeps the skin juicier, plumper, prevents dehydrated skin and thus keeps the appearance of wrinkles at bay.

It is a molecule that has a key function in the skin: to give SUPPORT and ELASTICITY.

As the years pass, what causes the first signs of aging ceases to occur naturally: the facial ligaments lose tension, the subcutaneous tissue and fat compartments decrease, losing support for the superficial tissues, and the dermis loses collagen and with This elasticity of the skin… All this causes a lack of flexibility and the appearance of aging wrinkles.

How do we use hyaluronic acid in aesthetic medicine?

We have mainly two ways to use it in consultation:

Non-crosslinked or free form hyaluronic acid

We inject it directly into the skin through microinjections, it is generally used by adding vitamins, amino acids or peptides, giving the skin what it stops manufacturing.

Cross-linked hyaluronic acid

It is a denser hyaluronic acid that is used in different areas of the face, mainly to restore volume, treat cheekbones, define or project the lips, treat nasolabial folds or marionette lines, project the chin or mark the jaw line.

Hyaluronic acid treatments and infiltrations achieve instant rejuvenation effects, achieving more toned, luminous and hydrated faces.
