A Focus on Hyaluronic Acid

You must have been living under a rock if you have not heard of hyaluronic acid (HA) by now. It crops up everywhere whenever skincare and medical aesthetics are mentioned. Its one ingredient stands out for its remarkable properties and widespread use. Widely celebrated for its hydrating qualities, HA is a main player in the quest for youthful, radiant skin. At The Doctors Laser Clinic, we harness the power of HA to offer transformative treatments.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found throughout the body’s connective tissues. First identified in the 1950s, it has since become ubiquitous in medical and cosmetic treatments due to its unique properties. We all have an average of 15 grams of Hyaluronic acid in our bodies.

Where is Hyaluronic Acid Found?

The largest amounts of HA are found in the skin, making up a significant part of the dermal matrix. It’s also present in the eyes and joints, playing its critical roles in maintaining their health and functionality.

The Functions of Hyaluronic Acid

In the skin, HA is crucial for maintaining moisture, ensuring elasticity, and aiding in wound healing. Beyond the skin, it acts as a lubricant in our joints and contributes to the maintenance of healthy eye tissues.

Production of Hyaluronic Acid in the Body

HA is synthesised by cells in the body and is integral to skin health. However, as we age, our natural production of HA diminishes, leading to a loss of moisture and the development of wrinkles.

Unique Properties of Hyaluronic Acid

One of the most remarkable qualities of HA is its ability to hold vast amounts of moisture. Different molecular weights of HA have different implications for skin penetration and hydration, making it a versatile ingredient in skincare.
