What is hyaluronic acid, why is it used in dermal filler treatments and what are its properties in terms of skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body along with elastin and collagen. It is a main component of your skin, being actually a complex sugar which strongly absorbs water, retaining more than a thousand times of its weight and thus, participating in the natural repairing process of the tissue. Having extreme sponge-like qualities the hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin and makes it look smoother, ensuring a fresh look.
Unlike the botulinum toxin type A found out in Botox which paralyses the muscles and is best suitable for expression lines, the hyaluronic acid gives the skin volume, being recommended for nasolabial folds, mouth wrinkles, lip or cheek augmentation or to fill hollow cheeks. If you want to follow one of these dermal filler procedures you should have a prior consultation and let a specialist guide you through your decision. Here at the Renew Skin & Health Clinic Leeds branch, we can offer you the guidance you seek and the most appropriate procedure performed by one of our top specialists.
