Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally present in the joints, the vitreous humor of the eye and the dermis, i.e. the inner layer of the skin, at 50%. It is beneficial in part because it captures and maintains water. It is a molecule present in many cosmetics and especially in anti-wrinkle products. It is as good for the skin as it is for the hair.

The role of hyaluronic acid is to maintain the firmness of the skin but unfortunately the older we get, the more our natural hyaluronic acid decreases and thus, we lose the elasticity of our skin and gain wrinkles. Around the age of 50, the level of hyaluronic acid is divided by 2.

The benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid has regenerative properties. When we apply hyaluronic acid to our skin, our skin senses its presence and stimulates natural production automatically.

As stated earlier, hyaluronic acid captures and maintains water. It has great retention capacities and therefore helps maintain the hydration of our skin.

The older we get , the more collagen production slows down . In this case, hyaluronic acid will stimulate the production of collagen.

Do you have fairly dull skin and are you tired of looking sick? Hyaluronic acid is perfect for you! It is an active ingredient that revitalizes the complexion and makes it fresher and luminous .

Against tissue dehydration, that is to say against the formation of wrinkles or wrinkles already present, hyaluronic acid is unstoppable. It mixes with water and fills the intercellular spaces. In cosmetic surgery, it is used to fill in wrinkles with immediate effect.

Hyaluronic acid also has inflammatory properties. It is therefore used for weakened skin, superficial burns and skin irritations.

Why use hyaluronic acid?

One of the most important elements in a facial routine, and often overlooked, is hydration.

We must hydrate our skin so that it does not become dry and maintains its same skin texture and smooth property. Hyaluronic acid is the perfect active ingredient for this and what's more, it provides protection against UV rays, which is just as essential since UV rays also cause wrinkles, spots and a dull complexion. This is therefore yet another argument for the use of this molecule in your routine.

Use hyaluronic acid daily

Hyaluronic acid is present in many products such as anti-aging or non-aging serums and moisturizing creams.

A facial routine is made up of 5 key steps:

  • the makeup remover
  • cleaning
  • scrub and exfoliation, optional step to be done only twice a week so as not to attack the skin
  • Lotion or toner
  • Moisturizing cream

You can complete your routine with bonus treatments such as serums and masks, to apply before hydrating. To use hyaluronic acid, you can buy a serum or moisturizer that contains it.

It's always better to apply it twice a day, maybe once in the morning when moisturizing and in the evening, with a serum.

Hyaluronic acid in cosmetic surgery

You can use hyaluronic acid daily in your beauty routine but you can also use it with immediate effect thanks to cosmetic surgery. Hyaluronic acid is used in cosmetic surgery to fill in fine lines and wrinkles to restore freshness to the skin and rejuvenate it, but you can also find it in lip injections.

But of course, injecting hyaluronic acid has at least one risk: transient bruising and swelling, especially when injecting into the mouth.

Where to inject hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is injected into several places such as:

  • forehead wrinkles
  • goose bumps, little creases on the corners of the eyes
  • the contour of the mouth
  • the lips
  • facial contour, nasolabial folds
  • cheeks and cheekbones
