Hyaluronic acid in cosmetics — preparations, prices, contraindications, side effects and complications
Its main focus falls on the articular cartilage and upper subcutaneous layer. However, its relative importance in vivo is negligible. So, in 60 – kg adult of reproductive age, hyaluronic acid is not more than 12 – 13 grams.
With age human skin loses its natural moisture. An attempt to detain her – use moisturizing and nourishing creams – gives certain results at a fairly young age. The older a woman is, the more effective ways of dealing with aging it needs. A breakthrough in cosmetology experts call the implementation under the top layer of the skin of substances that should develop the body.
Just say that its application is now extremely popular, despite the fact that the results obtained by chemical means. Drugs of animal origin is practically not used, too high percentage of rejection of acids in the human body.
Chemical compound getting into the natural environment, regenerates cell metabolism, slows the aging process, delaying the desired amount of moisture under the skin.
Drugs with its composition in cosmetics is able great to deal with:
- Nutrition and hydration of the skin.
- Inflammation and healing.
- The revitalization of the cells.
- The adjustment of the contour of the face
- Neutralization of free radicals.
Hyaluronic acid is a member of creams, masks used during the procedure of mesotherapy and biorevitalisation. Its application allows to achieve excellent results without surgical intervention.
Already the first signs of skin aging should be a signal for such procedures, but to abuse them at a young age, of course, not worth it. But atopic skin with a very noticeable signs of aging is able to significantly improve their appearance. While this at times will reduce the speed of the natural aging process of the skin, which was launched by nature.
In the healthy human body hyaluronic acid functions as the sponge, keeping the natural moisture level that allows the skin to be soft, to preserve the natural color and healthy look. Not only that, over time, a kind of «sponge» more soluble and no longer retains moisture, so this process speed up harmful habits (alcohol, cigarettes, poor diet) and the environment.
The lack of hyaluronic acid in the subcutaneous part of the body leads to destruction of the natural frame made of strong connective fibers. The skin begins to dry, peel off, cover small and large wrinkles, stretch.
While its one molecule is able to retain not only five water molecules, but also to be a biological lubricant, part of the synovial fluid. And stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

Introduction under the skin
All methods of getting acid in the human body are three:
- Hyaluronic acid drink along with other drugs, such as collagen. Course as maintenance therapy after cosmetic procedures may appoint a cosmetologist. Drink it for a long time, but without sessions, subcutaneous administration results imperceptible at all.
- The introduction of acid by dermaroller. On cleansed face in the zones to apply the acid, then a dermaroller with needles 0.5 to 1.5 mm, is a kind of massage. Then face mask is applied, after removing the cream. The effect will be noticeable after 3 to 4 treatments.
- The injection of hyaluronic acid under the skin. They should be conducted only in sterile conditions, with disposable instruments. The use of local anesthesia is necessary.
What injections are the most effective in the struggle for leaving youth. Usually a beautician divides the face into zones. Each after thorough cleansing apply anesthetic cream, and then inject the injections. The gel is quite dense substance and getting under the skin requires a light smoothing. The procedure for each zone takes place within 7 — 10 days, and the full course is 8 — 9 sessions. Beautician it is usually two to two and a half months.

Contraindications, complications and side effects
The polysaccharide into this category of chemical substances are hyaluronic acid, with a skillful introduction to the desired areas of the face, will be able at some time to hold the moisture there, but then he will simply dissolve and exit the body.
During a session, it is likely that the needle will fall into the vessel, then you may receive a bruise. So this procedure should be assigned at the beginning of the weekend, so by Monday to look properly.
There are a number of contraindications to the use of hyaluronic acid:
- Problems with blood clotting.

Low-molecular hyaluronic acid in cosmetics
To injection of hyaluronic acid was the most effective, it is important what the size of the water molecule will be taken after the injection under the skin. Macromolecular technology in this case ineffective.
The best result will bring the drug, which has a molecular mass of 50кДа. He is able to pass into the skin through the epidermal layer and stay there, hydrating the skin from within.
In other words, it provides a good hydration of the skin, whereas low-molecular wrinkles.
Small molecular weight allows a synthetic substance after contact with the epidermis to strengthen the intercellular connections to provide power fibroplast and to synthesize its own collagen and acid.
That is in contact with low molecular weight hyaluronic acid under the skin of the patient, in cosmetics we can talk about the beginning of the formation of intercellular complexes compounds, the expression of many genes that provides significant anti-aging effect.
Injection in lips
Injections not only remove wrinkles, tighten facial contour, but also possible to correct the nasolabial folds and change the contour of the lips. Hyaluronic acid to increase fullness of the lips used in cosmetics, often together with other components, for example, silicone.
He on the one hand guarantees a long lasting effect after injection, and with another — increases the risk of rejection drugs.
More expensive, but safer and more effective will be the introduction of pure synthetic hyaluronic acid. Applying the gel on the lips today — the procedure is popular and lasts no more than 20 minutes.
Under local anesthesia the injections are made directly on the lips. The gel spreads quickly without creating bumps and lumps. Swelling after injections is going on the second or rarely the third day after the procedure. If the lips after the injections was not too full, then re-introduction of hyaluronic acid can be carried out not earlier than in two weeks.
The positive effect lasts at least 9 months, maximum a year and a half. After the stated period will have to repeat the course of injections, especially since the adjustment of the lips takes less time compared to other procedures.
