Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body to protect the skin, tissues, and joints. It’s a viscous polysaccharide capable of attracting high amounts of water, thus it’s highly effective in retaining moisture and preventing wrinkle formation in the skin. There are many topical anti-aging products in the market that claims to get rid of facial lines and wrinkles. However, the high molecular weight of hyaluronic acid cannot penetrate the skin. These products merely offer hydration, rather than correct visible lines and wrinkles.
Gel dermal fillers like Yvoire, injects hyaluronic acid directly into the dermis to reduce age-related skin defects. The target area immediately receives a plumping effect because of the water retaining abilities of hyaluronic acid. Aside from wrinkle correction and volume restoration, Yvoire also prevents the degradation of collagen for a longer lasting youthful skin.
