Skin ageing and hyaluronic acid

Skin ageing is a multifactorial process. Youthful skin retains its turgor, resilience and pliability due to its high contents of water. Daily lifestyle, environmental aggressions and the normal process of ageing cause loss of moisture. The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid that has unique capacity in retaining water.

Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, a naturally-occurring substance in skin known for its capacity to attract and hold onto 1000x its molecular weight in moisture. Hyaluronic acid is part of the skin’s youth-supporting matrix and works to keep every aspect of skin stable, safeguarded and constantly renewed. It works overtime by replenishing skin to enhance a healthy, supple look and feel.

Why is hyaluronic acid in the skin so important?

  • Stimulates collagen production

  • Increases the skin’s water content

  • Improves skin plumpness

  • Nourishes deeply

  • Provides smoothness to the skin, reducing flaccidity

  • Strengthens the epidermal barrier[1]

By injecting hyaluronic acid, we can help stimulate the skin regeneration mechanisms.

Improves fibroblast morphology and function[2]:

  • Increases elastin synthesis
  • New collagen fibres are produced

Thanks to aesthetic medicine, we can correct the loss of hyaluronic acid in the skin[3].
