Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide of the glycosaminoglycan group, i.e. it is a sugar molecule that can be found naturally in our body. It is usually concentrated in the joints, cartilage and skin, and due to the passage of time, our body consumes its reserves and little by little, the concentration of hyaluronic acid decreases. Its main qualities are hydration, since hyaluronic acid has the capacity to retain large amounts of water around it, and its ability to fill in tissues such as wrinkles or expression lines.

Thus, as we age, the concentration of hyaluronic acid decreases, causing the skin to look more dehydrated and, as a direct consequence, favoring the formation of wrinkles and furrows. 



Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our body, which makes it a 100% biocompatible treatment.

The method of application is by infiltration using a very fine syringe, adapted for each type of treatment, and the wrinkle or the area to be treated will be filled, in order to recover the tone and the smooth and taut appearance of that area.

After the application, the skin will look with a swelling according to the treatment performed, it will gradually disappear and we will be able to observe the real results of the operation afterwards. 


Advantages of hyaluronic acid

  • One of the main advantages of hyaluronic acid is its ease of application, since with a 30-minute session, we can overcome the signs of aging and obtain magnificent results.
