The proteoglycans contained in hyaluronan are able to retain water molecules and give volume and moisture to the skin. As time passes, the hyaluronic acid degrades and skin hydration or “cracking” problems appear.
With the help of technology, hyaluronic acid is produced in laboratories with the use of very safe methods. It is a biotechnology product submitted to modifications that increase its duration, the volume delivered and the degradation time. It is available in various densities so that it may be used for all types of wrinkles. It can be used for the correction of:
