The passage of time is more evident in your facial skin due to it being more exposed to external agents. The time arrives when flaccidity and wrinkles appear and although they are natural, it is worthwhile to pay attention and give your skin the best care.
Collagen and hyaluronic acid have a great deal to contribute to the treatment and care of mature skin.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a macromolecule resulting from the linear polymerisation of a glucose derivative: The glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine.
One of its main characteristics is hydration, since it retains large amounts of water.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in our body. However, over the years the presence of hyaluronic acid is reduced, changing the appearance of the face and giving rise to the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of firmness and tautness.
Main benefits of hyaluronic acid
- Hydration: The main characteristic of hyaluronic acid is its ability to capture and retain water. As the skin ages, it becomes drier; therefore, hyaluronic acid is essential to improve the skins appearance, to hydrate it and provide it with the moisture that it needs.
- Remedy for wrinkles: Hyaluronic acid is a great filler for wrinkles since it increases the volume of the folds, the furrows and the skin depressions.
- Harmless substance: Hyaluronic acid is compatible with all skin types, therefore it is not necessary to do allergy tests. Because it is not an aggressive substance you can use it worry-free on all skin types.
Types of wrinkles that hyaluronic acid treats
Hyaluronic acid is substance that is a highly recommended for the treatment of wrinkles, since it improves the elasticity of the skin and hydrates the epidermis.
Hyaluronic acid is more commonly used to treat so-called expression wrinkles. They are caused by the passage of time and facial expressions, in other words, the gesticulations made when talking leads to an excessive stimulation of the facial muscles. The areas where expression wrinkles are more evident are at the eye contours, the space between the eyebrows, the area around the mouth and the top lip.
