What a wrinkle is:
With time, exposure to the sun and other elements, skin components break down. The skin loses structure and volume. Unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear. Healthcare professionals now can correct wrinkles and facial folds, reversing the signs of aging.
How wrinkles are corrected:
The appearance of wrinkles and facial folds can be smoothed by adding structure and volume underneath and bringing sunken skin back up to the surface. Generally, this is done by injecting materials into the skin, to achieve a temporary effect.
When administered by a trained healthcare professional, you can be sure that the materials have been proven safe to use. One example is hyaluronic acid.
What hyaluronic acid is:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells, and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue matrix, along with collagen and elastin.
HA retains water like aponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density.
Allergan, Inc. has found ways to produce, purify, and package HA to make it available for wrinkle correction.
