The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for Scars and Wrinkles

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in the human body and acts as a cushioning and lubrication agent for our joints, nerves, hair, skin, and eyes. It's particularly important to skin appearance because about 50 percent of the body's supply is located in the skin tissues, where the viscous, jelly-like substance helps keep it plump, soft, and supple for a while, at least.

Our ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines with age, which can lead to increased dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Hyaluronic acid molecules have a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times their weight in water thus increasing the skin's ability to hold more moisture making the skin more plump and youthful while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

How Can the Skin Benefit from Hyaluronic Acid?

One of the main benefits of hyaluronic acid for the skin is the ability to rejuvenate the dermis layer of the skin. When this substance is applied to the face it has the ability to fill and disguise tine line, providing a more even skin and combating premature aging.

Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is its ability to keep skin hydrated allowing a healthy, bright, velvety, and florid complexion. Moreover, hyaluronic acid stimulates skin elasticity, allowing flaccidity and a firm complexion. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes (crow's feet), and mouth.

Hyaluronic acid can be found as an ingredient in many anti-aging creams and other skin formulations or it can be administered through injections performed by a specialist in aesthetic medicine and can immediately produce a filling effect in areas around the eyes and mouth where wrinkles and lines are most prominent.
