Component of youth and beauty

As we know, the human body to a large extent made up of water. The liquid in this context is almost synonymous with life. Perhaps this expression somewhat exaggerated, but still can not underestimate the importance of water to humans. Especially it concerns the issue of youth and beauty. For example, what will happen in the human body if it there is a shortage of liquid? In this case, it will start to become flabby skin lose its firmness and elasticity. Will wrinkles and other age-related changes in the skin.

Someone will ask, where is hyaluronic acid? The thing is, hyaluronic acid belongs to the group of glycosaminoglycans, which are an important component of the epidermis. Simply put, it is a kind of liquid "springs" that keep the skin firm and elastic to the state.

The mechanism of action of injections of hyaluronic acid

Thus, the skin, consisting of collagen, "supported" by using hyaluronic acid. As mentioned above, it serves as a peculiar "springs". There will be no hyaluronic acid - will begin to crumble and collagen. Injection of hyaluronic acid acts like a ruined filling stations. Injection itself consists of fillers, which are based on hyaluronic acid biosynthetic. It is injected under the skin and then spreads it, creating support collagen fibers.

Specialist (beautician) should pinpoint the injection site, as it should be administered with mathematical precision. That is why it is better to apply to specialized clinics.

Under the influence of the injection with hyaluronic acid the skin is stretched and straightened. As for the lips, their outlines become clearer, they themselves become more attractive, increasing their size. Summary of the charm of injection is that in human organism falls substance which is familiar to him and is not alien, for example, silicon. And overdo it with hyaluronic acid is more difficult than with silicone. Hardly in this case will turn out, "duck" lip or "lip-dumplings."
