Hyaluronic acid is a unique polysaccharide and a structural component of a human body, which acts as a main skin moisturizer. Its molecule is called the substance of youth and beauty. There are no any other natural substances with the same features as hyaluronic acid. It plays the leading role in supporting skin tone and preventing wrinkles development, skin slackness and dryness. Taking into account the unique properties of hyaluronic acid, the scientists learned to synthesize it and to use it as an effective treatment against aging changes.
What are the beauty procedures with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid has an ability to bind a large amount of moisture, much larger than its own molecule size. Besides that, hyaluronic acid prevents moisture evaporation from the skin. This substance acts as a kind of filler between collagen and elastin fibers, takes part in their synthesis and keeps skin elastic. Before the age of 25 our body is able to develop the necessary amount of hyaluronic acid, but after this age the processes of substance breakdown prevail its repair. The skin becomes dry, ages, the wrinkles become more apparent.
Our skin responds favorably on synthetic supplementing of hyaluronic acid. Cosmetic industry offers a series of efficient beauty procedures based on hyaluronic acid, which help the skin to stay young and beautiful, and to prevent its aging.
Cosmetic products of topical use with hyaluronic acid, such as creams, masks, gels, lotions have the most affordable price. Their regular application leads to positive effect.
Injectable and laser-based beauty procedures with hyaluronic acid have a more prominent action. This substance is introduced deeply into the skin by injections or modern technologies, smoothens wrinkles and lifts facial contours. Among these beauty procedures are biorevitalization, mesotherapy, redermalization, wrinkle filling, etc.

What are advantages and disadvantages of hyaluronic acid
The main advantage of hyaluronic acid, either using it in beauty procedures or as a creams’ ingredient, is a quick and pronounced effect. Moreover, hyaluronic acid doesn’t have any contraindications and doesn’t cause allergy reactions, as it is a natural structural component of a human body.
Being used as an ingredient of topical-use products, hyaluronic acid doesn’t have any side effects. It should be noted, that the most efficient creams’ ingredient is hyaluronic acid with smaller molecule size – sodium hyaluronate, which can penetrate deep into the skin layers. In beauty procedures with hyaluronic acid it is more reasonable to use a high-molecular substance – a hyaluronic acid itself.
As for beauty procedures’ disadvantages, they are caused by the peculiar features of this process. Injections can be painful and cause such consequences as redness, edema, hematoma, bruises, sensory loss in the injection area. All these symptoms disappear a few days after the procedure.
