Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most popular and most frequently used fillers in the market. How much do you know about hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, which is found in our skin and connective tissues. Medically, it has been used to replaced gel within the joints and also widely in aesthetic medicine.

You see, our body has hyaluronic acids. Its production and degradation should occur at the same speed. However, as one ages, the speed of production cannot catch up with its degradation and hence, we lose hyaluronic acids as we ages. Without the hyaluronic acids to hold the supporting tissues of the skin, the skin appears saggy, dry and wrinkle will start to form.  At age 30, we will start to lose hyaluronic acid in our body. By 60 years old, there is only 25% of the hyaluronic acid remaining in our body.

It is therefore, hyaluronic acid is widely used as filler to replace lose volumes in aesthetic treatment. It is safe and effective. We are merely replacing what we have lost.
