What is hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide found naturally in our body. It is found in the epidermis, cartilage, eyes, connective tissue, among others. It has the main quality of attracting and retaining water, thanks to which these tissues maintain their functionality. However, hyaluronic acid decreases with age, which is noticeable in the skin and joints.

This is visible in a flaccid, less firm, less elastic and hydrated skin, in expression lines. As for the joints, the lack of hyaluronic acid causes stiffness and pain. It is important to note that around the age of 50, there is only half of hyaluronic acid in the body. The application of hyaluronic acid is currently used in regenerative and trauma medicine.
