What is Hyaluronic Acid?

November 24, 2021

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally in different parts of the body, but its concentration increases in particular in certain fluids inside the body, such as:

- Fluids in the eye area.
- The fluids that are inside the joints.
In addition to the natural form of this acid, a laboratory-made form is also available, usually made using a specific type of bacteria.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the substances that has natural moisturizing properties, as molecules of this acid can bind to a large number of water molecules, equivalent to a thousand times their weight or more.

However, with age, the production of some types of important substances within the body decreases, including collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which may lead to the skin gradually losing its taut appearance and moisture.

Cosmetic benefits and uses of hyaluronic acid:
Here is a list of the most prominent benefits and cosmetic uses of hyaluronic acid as follows:

1. Anti-aging
This acid may help improve the appearance of the skin and resist the signs of aging, and this is what studies say in this regard:

One study showed that supplementing with this acid may help improve skin appearance and reduce wrinkles.
One study found that using face creams and ointments containing hyaluronic acid may help tighten skin and reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles.
It should be noted that the degree of effectiveness of care products that contain this type of acid varies from person to person, depending on several factors, including the following:

Genes and hereditary factors.
Diet food.
The extent of exposure to the sun.
2. Moisturizing the skin
Using products containing hyaluronic acid may help increase moisture levels in the skin.

However, before purchasing this type of preparation, you should pay attention to some important matters that may affect the effectiveness of the preparation, such as: the size of the acid molecules used, for the following reasons:

If the product contains large molecules of acid, it may be difficult for these molecules to penetrate the skin, so the molecules remain on the surface to provide surface moisture.
In the event that the acid molecules are small, the skin's ability to benefit from them becomes better, as the small molecules can penetrate the surface of the skin better and more effectively.
Therefore, it is preferable to choose products that contain hyaluronic acid particles of different sizes and variety.

3. Filler injections
This type of acid is one of the materials commonly used in cosmetic filler procedures, as this acid is often used in the form of a gel that is injected into certain areas as a cosmetic filler, and these are some of the common uses of fillers:

Lifting and tightening the cheeks.
Improve the appearance of the eye contour area.
Moisturizing and defining the lips.
Reducing the severity of lines that may appear around the lips and in the chin area
