Hyaluronic acid is a natural endogenous substance and an essential component of connective tissue.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb and retain large amounts of water. This skin elasticity is promoted and the formation of new collagen is stimulated.
With increasing age and after many years of exposure to the sun and UV radiation less and less hyaluronic acid is produced by the body. The results thereof are wrinkles and volume loss.
The positive effect of hyaluronic acid is nowadays successfully used for skin rejuvenation: unwelcome wrinkles can be smoothed by hyaluronic acid injections. In this case, hyaluronic acid is injected with a fine needle gently under the fold and cushions this on from below. The substance is degraded over passing time in a natural way. In that way fine, medium and even pronounced wrinkles can be corrected quickly and reliably. The success is visible immediately after the treatment.
All in all, wrinkle injections represent a gentle alternative to surgery.
