Hyaluronic acid is a good choice for reducing facial wrinkles. It is one of the dermal fillers that pretty matches with the human body. In fact, the substance is a natural sugar molecule that exists in almost every single living mammal. In humans, it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue.
It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers. If the term sounds familiar, it is because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain and provide extra cushioning. Hyaluronic acid is not derived from animal sources. When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. In the last few decades, various synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid have been developed and used to correct disorders in the fields of rheumatology, ophthalmology, and wound repair. More recently, synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid are being manufactured for use to provide facial rejuvenation.
