Every woman dreams that her skin remains young and toned for as long as possible. The face is a visiting card of a woman and hyaluronic acid will help keep it in good shape.
Many experts believe that hyaluronic acid is almost a panacea for all cosmetic problems. But how close is this to the truth?
Hyaluronic acid is produced by connective tissue cells. Until about 25 years of age, it is produced in excess, but then the synthesis is reduced.
The importance of hyaluronic acid is that it stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, which are responsible for the elasticity of the skin. In the presence of a sufficient amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin cells, an optimal water balance is maintained. When it becomes less, it has a detrimental effect on the skin. A dull complexion, dryness, the first wrinkles are signs that it is necessary to use products containing hyaluronic acid.
Cream or injections?
The so-called "beauty injections" are the general name for all kinds of injections used by cosmetologists. And most often these injections contain hyaluronic acid. It is very popular as it is well absorbed by the body.
"Beauty shots" with hyaluronic acid are used under certain conditions. Firstly, these injections are indispensable in getting rid of age-related changes. Secondly, hyaluronic acid will help with skin dehydration. And thirdly, it is used for contour plastics, because with the help of acid, you can even out the oval of the face or enlarge the lips.
The content of hyaluronic acid in creams is negligible. Therefore, to manifest a cumulative effect, you need to apply them twice a day. But one should not expect a serious and quick change for the better.
Serums containing hyaluronic acid are more effective than creams. The serum has a high concentration of acid, therefore, such funds are used not daily, but in courses. For example, a two-week course several times a year. The effect will appear after the first course.
Hyaluronic acid, as well as products containing it, are not recommended for pregnant and lactating women. Inflammatory processes on the skin of the face are also contraindications.
