Hyaluronic acid might be obtained in two ways: animal raw material and artificial methods.
The first way to extract hyaluronate from fish, cartilage cattle and cock crests is a thing of the past.
The second, artificial method is more widely and widely used - the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in laboratories, with the help of which a preparation completely identical to natural, but with a high degree of purification and without foreign components causing allergic reactions is produced.
Hyaluronic acid is used in medicine, cosmetology, dermatology:
- ophthalmology and eye surgery, production of contact lenses
- orthopedics: treatment of joints and bone diseases
- aesthetic medicine
- surgery: treatment of wounds, trophic ulcers, burns
- food additives
- facial skin care
- changing and correcting forms, filling, simulating the face.
Hyaluronic acid is in demand in cosmetology due to the terrific and rapid effect it has on the face skin.
Hyaluronic acid has a great moisturizing effect that exceeds any other moisturizing cosmetics:
- attracts water molecules and keeps them;
- prevents moisture evaporation by forming a protective film;
- protects against external shocks;
- synthesizes elastane and collagen
Hyaluronic acid has a rejuvenating and refreshing effect. Moisturized skin is healthy skin.
Effect on face skin:
- intense skin moisturizing;
- color improvement, radiance;
- improving elasticity;
- roughness reduction;
- fine wrinkling;
Sufficient humidity allows the tissue recovery process to be fully functional.
For facial skin, hyaluronate is used for two purposes: moisturizing and contour plastic. The moisturizing effect is achieved using cosmetic agents containing hyaluronic acid. Contour plastic - wrinkling, correcting and changing the volume of different areas of the face - implies injection techniques.
Application of hyaluronic acid in cosmetics
Every year the popularity of hyaluronic acid grows, it is used in the composition of various cosmetic products - creams, lotions, masks, serums, lipsticks and other skin care products.
There is a misconception that this way of using hyaluronics is inefficient because the diameter of its molecules is many times greater than the distance between skin molecules. However, studies suggest otherwise. Hyaluronic acid, which remains on the surface of the skin for a long time, enters both the upper layers and the dermis, giving the necessary moisture to the cells, thus moisturizing them and preventing premature aging. By the way, to moisturize the upper layers of the skin is enough to find the substance on the surface.
For deeper penetration into the layers of the skin in cosmetics, fragmented molecule hyaluronate is usually used.
But do not forget when using means containing hyaluronic acid that the composition of cosmetics hyaluronate is responsible only for the moisturizing effect. The feeling of freshness on the skin, rested appearance of the face, blush, protection from external environmental hazards - this result will give a remedy for everyday use. Add proper nutrition, full sleep, outdoor walks - and the result will not be long.
For deeper hydration, for smoothing wrinkles or changing the forms of cheekbones, lips and other parts of the face injections and various hardware techniques using hyaluronic acid are used.
Such injection procedures have become an excellent alternative to surgery. The procedure takes relatively little time, is practically painless and does not require time for recovery and rehabilitation. Injections are injected directly into the problem area, filling the voids and correcting skin defects.
The use of hyaluronic acid injections is possible for both the face and other body parts.
Before appointing any procedures, an experienced cosmetologist is sure to conduct a preliminary examination and determine the predisposition to the appearance of edema and bruises, if any. In this case, prescribed drugs that strengthen the vessels.
The slight visible marks on the skin from the procedure are quick and almost painless.
