Hyaluronic acid filler is a type of dermal filler that is popular amongst many clients and injectors due to its ability to enhance natural features within one’s appearance. They contain the key ingredient hyaluronic acid, but what is it and how does it work?
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a gel like substance found and naturally produced within our bodies. It has many impressive qualities, such as accelerating skin regeneration, healing wounds and scars and absorbing and retaining moisture within the skin. Not only is it found in our skin, but it is found in areas like the joints, where it works to prevent any injuries or pain from the bones grinding against each other.
What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?
Its benefits for the skin are endless, which is why it is found in a vast range of skin care products on the market. It stimulates the body’s collagen production which then also results in the production of elastin. These two elements work together to hold volume and shape in the skin whilst also having the ability to bounce the skin back into shape even when it is stretched, pulled or pinched. As we age however, our collagen and elastin production declines leading to signs of ageing appearing on the skin such as wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to absorb and retain a large amount of water as it is a humectant. This means it is one of the best ingredients to look for if you are dealing with dehydrated skin and is also why it is frequently used in skin boosters.
