You’ve probably read about it many times in our blogs: hyaluronic acid. A tricky word for a special product. While you may not immediately associate acid with something you want to put in or on your skin, with hyaluronic acid it really is. There are an extraordinary number of benefits to hyaluronic acid, and we are happy to tell you all about this unique product which is the basis of virtually every filler.
These are 16 facts about hyaluronic acid!
1 Hyaluronic acid is natural
It may not immediately sound like something natural, but hyaluronic acid already occurs naturally in your body. It is a carbohydrate molecule.
Hyaluronic acid is extremely hydrating to the skin and is used in many different skin care products and thus also in fillers.
3 Hyaluronic acid is also known as HA
Another word for hyaluronic acid is hyaluronan (HA). The word hyaluronic acid comes from the Greek word “hyalos” meaning glass and “uronic acid.” Together, you then arrive at Hyaluronic Acid.
4 HA for your health
So hyaluronic acid is naturally present in your body and does important things there. HA provides lubrication to the connective tissue of your joints and skin. In addition, it is an important part of your overall health.
5 Hyaluronic acid can dissolve you
Hyaluronic acid has a great advantage: there is a solvent for it. If too much hyaluronic acid was injected or if you appear to be allergic, you can use Hyason, a dissolving solution.
6 For all skin types
HA has benefits for all skin types. Hyaluronic acid’s greatest advantage is its ability to provide particularly long-lasting moisture to the skin. This is immediately why it has been in the news so frequently and is widely used in creams and fillers.
7 Up to 1000x its own weight
A hyaluronic acid molecule can hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in moisture. That just goes to show how hydrating HA is!
8 Exceptional opportunities
Hyaluronic acid can have extremely many uses and at our clinic we use it for many different filler treatments. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are very high quality and give extremely good results.

. But also our
fill smoker’s lines treatment

we do with this top filler.
9 Hyaluronic acid fillers aftercare
HA-based fillers require only limited aftercare. An ice pack, no massaging and no going to the sauna or tanning bed in the first two days after your treatment and that’s all.
10 Hyaluronic acid decreases with age
As you age, your body starts to contain less and less hyaluronic acid. By the time you are 40 years old, you have as much as 50% less hyaluronic acid. When your skin has less hyaluronic acid, the skin becomes less supple and you start to see small lines and wrinkles.
When your skin is better hydrated, it becomes firm and plump again. Then you immediately see fewer wrinkles and lines. Also, your skin seems to “glow” more when it is well hydrated. Hyaluronic acid can provide the right amount of hydration.
11 Wrinkles we all get
Where some have to have their first lines and wrinkles filled in as early as 25, others can easily go through to 40 without wrinkles. Wrinkles are the result of the natural aging process we all undergo but not everyone ages at the same rate. The faster your hyaluronic acid decreases, the faster you will get wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid remains a special component of our body!
12 Hydrated skin protects better
When your skin is well hydrated and thus there is sufficient hyaluronic acid, your skin is also less vulnerable. Dry skin is more prone to infections and forms a less solid barrier against outside influences.
13 Low risk of allergic reactions
HA is already naturally occurring in our bodies, which is why allergic reactions to this filler are much less common. Also, irritations are less likely to arise.
14 Hyaluronic acid fillers work long term
When you have been administered a filler with hyaluronic acid, you will be able to enjoy the results for a longer period of time. Some treatments are visible for up to 12 months!
15 How a filler with hyaluronic acid works
The filler is injected under your skin. That’s where hyaluronic acid attracts moisture and makes it stay there. As volume increases, fewer wrinkles, lines or dimples are visible.
Filler treatments with hyaluronic acid
fillers are very high quality and high quality but are also definitely very affordable.
