Everything you need to know about hyaluronic acid

Great remedy for wrinkles! The only truly effective humidifier! The best filler for injection therapy! Hyaluronic acid is raised to the rank of almost the elixir of youth.

What is she really, where does she come from and what can she do? We found.

1. How do we know about her?

For the first time about hyaluronic acid started talking back in 1934 ... veterinarians. They discovered a new substance in the bovine eye and began to study its properties. It turned out that hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to retain water: its molecule attracts and binds THOUSAND water molecules.

2. Why is it needed?

Hyaluronic acid is produced by the cells of our body. It is constantly present in the joints, so that they are so flexible and mobile. In the eyeball, it maintains the normal state of the vitreous body. And in the skin - fills the voids between the fibers of collagen and elastin, thus creating a kind of mattress in which collagen andelastin is a spring, and hyaluronic acid is polyurethane foam, which does not allow the spring to straighten and stretch.

3. Why is it introduced into the composition of cosmetics?

With age, the body produces less and less hyaluronic acid. This is one of the main causes of skin aging and wrinkle formation. Production begins to decline already at the age of 25, and by the age of 50 it has fallen by half! But there is also good news: hyaluronic acid is effective both in the composition of the cream or serum, and as an injection, and even as a dietary supplement.

4. How to get it?

Once hyaluronic acid with great difficulty extracted from (scary to imagine) fish and (even worse) cocks combs. Thank god it's in the past. Today, all the proposed products are of artificial origin, since there is an easy way to synthesize hyaluronic acid. In this preparation there are no bacteria, in composition it is completely identical to the acid that our body synthesizes, so this is actually the only cosmetic component that is guaranteed not to cause allergies.

5. How does hyaluronic acid cream work?

Hyaluronic acid molecules are rather large.Therefore, when applied superficially, a cream or serum with hyaluronic acid will moisturize only the top layer of the skin. At 25 years old, this is quite enough to even out the relief and create comfortable skin conditions, protect against dehydration, and retain the beneficial components of the cream under this protective film. The recommended dosage of hyaluronic acid in cosmetics is from 0.01% to 1%, and on the label it is designated as hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycan, hyaluronan or hylan.

6. How does the injection work?

If the age-related changes in the skin become more serious (usually it occurs between 30 and 40 years depending on genetic predisposition, lifestyle and quality of personal care), external application of hyaluronic acid does not solve the problem. Injection techniques do quite well with the task. Using a thin needle, the doctor inserts pure hyaluronic acid into the “sunken” zone (this may be an eyebrow fold, a transverse frontal wrinkle, a nasolabial fold, or a chin area).

Once in the “native” environment, hyaluronic acid molecules begin to attract moisture from the skin surface to the deep layers. Accumulating around the hyaluronic molecule, water molecules smooth the wrinkle from the inside, pushing it to the surface. And the relief of the face returns the young outlines.Most often, cosmetologists use hyaluronic acid preparations called Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm.

7. How long will the effect last?

Alas, the hyaluronic molecules gradually artificially introduced into the skin lose their activity and the effect of the injection disappears. Usually repeat the procedure is necessary in 6−12 months depending on the individual characteristics of the patient.

8. Do I risk getting hooked on shots?

If we talk about physiological dependence, then no, moreover, your own skin cells will continue to produce as much hyaluronics as they can without reducing their activity with additional administration. And psychologically - yes, and it would be strange to keep silent about it. After you see what miracles the hyaluronka is capable of, not many can voluntarily reject this anti-aging effect.

9. Does she moisturize her hair?

And how. Masks, serums and other hair products with hyaluronic acid as part of trichologists recommend all patients who complain of dryness, breakage, lack of luster and unruly hair. The effect is close to what the cream has on the surface of the skin: hyaluronic acid retains water in the hairline and prevents moisture from evaporating.

10. And if you take in?

A great option for those who are afraid of injections, but are not ready to use creams. Hyaluronic acid is sold in a pharmacy in mini-bags, capsules or tablets, which doctors recommend taking once a day. Interestingly, if you combine hyaluronic intake with vitamin C intake, it will be absorbed almost 8 times more effectively. But you will notice the effect only in 2−3 months, so this option is for the patient.
