The structure of the skin is supported by the extracellular matrix, which gives the skin elasticity and resistance. The extracellular matrix is a structure composed of proteins and fibers, produced mainly by fibroblasts. The component that binds these elements is collagen, a protein that ensures the structural integrity of the skin. Fibroblasts stretch and contract through the collagen network. During the aging process, collagen fibers deteriorate, resulting in a loss of mechanical tension and the appearance of wrinkles.
How does hyaluronic acid work?
Dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid are injected directly into the deep dermis, creating an immediate filling and correcting localized loss of volume. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for maintaining the skin's moisture levels, as it has the property of retaining water. In addition, the activity of fibroblasts is also stimulated, facilitating the creation of new collagen. Over time, the new collagen will strengthen the structure of the dermis and the carrier microspheres are gradually reabsorbed, giving way to the creation of elastin.
For what do you use it?
- Elimination or correction of wrinkles
- Lip filler
- Facial filler
What is its duration?
Depending on the type of material used and the area treated, the results can last about 1 year.
Does it have any side effects?
It is important that the application of hyaluronic acid is carried out by a qualified professional to avoid possible complications.
Hyaluronic acid is a compound that is created naturally in our body, therefore, its application is reversible, and it is reabsorbed after a few months.
