Hyaluronic acid injections

Sunday, 02 November 2008

hyaluronic acid injectionsNowadays, there is much talk about hyaluronic acid. Let us examine what this thing is. Hyaluronic acid is widely present in human and animal tissues. It is an essential component of the basic substance of the connective tissue, the synovial fluid (fluid found inside the cavities of synovial joints), the vitreous humour that is located between the lens and the retina of the eyeball. There is a lot of hyaluronic acid in the skin, bone, heart valves and the ovum.

The basic functions of hyaluronic acid in the organism

Hyaluronic acid retains water in the intercellular spaces, thereby increasing the resistance of tissue against contraction. One molecule of hyaluronic acid retain and holds up to about 500 molecules of water. It is involved in the transportation and distribution of water in the tissue. Hyaluronic acid determines the barrier and protective functions of the intercellular space. Inside the joints, it acts as a lubricant for the joint surfaces and it helps to normalize the intraocular pressure of the eye.

Hyaluronic acid produces fibroblast cells of the connective tissue. In childhood and youth, fibroblasts produce sufficient number of hyaluronic acid. After the age of 25 years, due to various toxic effects on an organism (adverse effect of the environment, the effects of electromagnetic fields when using computers, cellular phones, microwave household appliances, poor environmental conditions, poor quality of water, consumption of food products rich in preservatives, artificial colouring substances, genetically modified food products, stress), the quantity of the produced hyaluronic acid gradually declines. Therefore, such phenomena such as the thinning of the skin, increased intraocular pressure, age diseases of the joints start to appear with age. Simultaneously, the link between the cell surface and the deeper layers of the skin, and the blood tissue start damaging. Their resistance to external influences (immunity) decreases. Wrinkles start to appear on the skin, the face begins to lose its natural youthful complexion - skin becomes pale and dull.

The use of hyaluronic acid in modern medicine

Presently, hyaluronic acid is used to correct age-related changes in skin, including the restoration of features such as the loss of elasticity, dryness, wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is the main drug used to restore youth and skin beauty.

Hyaluronic acid drugs

Nowadays, hyaluronic acid is produced in the form of medical drugs of two kinds. There are drugs of animal origin, which is extracted directly from animal tissues. The second type of hyaluronic acid drugs are synthesized with a specially deduced micro organism that is harmless to the human organism. These are more modern drugs that contain a set molecular structure. They possess full infectious safety and low allergenicity.


Mesotherapy is the restoration of the skin and subcutaneous fat through the means of an intracutaneous injection of biologically active substances. Hyaluronic acid is often used for mesotherapy. This is an effective means of treating age-related changes, inflammatory processes and scars on the skin. In this case, hyaluronic acid stimulates metabolic processes in cells and in intercellular space of the skin. It promotes the formation of new blood vessels in the area. Mesotherapy with the use of hyaluronic acid should be regularly conducted, since it is quickly included in the metabolic processes and completely resolve within 2-3 weeks (the more the skin is dehydrated, the quicker). A full mesotherapy course takes up to five months, depending on the original state of the skin.

Plastic surgeries using hyaluronic acid drugs

The use of hyaluronic acid drugs are shown for nasolabial fold correction, removal of wrinkles, and increasing the size of the lips. Hyaluronic acid that is introduced under the skin or muscle forms a liquid substance and causes the skin to smoothen. Hyaluronic acid (for example, the well-known restylane drug) is introduced intramuscularly, subcutaneously or intracutaneously. It fills empty spaces and cavities and starts to retain water. This injection leads to an increase in the quantity of this compound at the area where the injection was done. The skin at this area flattens and smoothens, thereby reducing wrinkles.

Gel paste stays in the skin cover for a long time without being destroyed. The effect after the contour plastic lips lasts for up to a year, after which the gel resorbs and the contour plastic lips can be repeated. Hyaluronic acid is an effective natural means of preventing skin aging. Its application is not usually accompanied by complications because hyaluronic acid is one of the components of any living organism.
