Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid

For over 50 years, hyaluronic acid has been a molecule widely studied and used both in orthopaedics – for the prevention and treatment of joint disorders – and in aesthetic medicine to fight wrinkles, moisturise and contribute to the cellular rejuvenation of the skin.

But what is it, exactly?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a linear polysaccharide naturally produced by the body and found mainly in the synovial fluid of the knee, the dermis of the skin and the vitreous body of the eye.

Thanks to its special characteristics of attracting and retaining 1000 times its weight in water, HA acts on the skin keeping it moisturised, supple and turgid. In addition to moisturising the skin, it interacts with collagen and elastin to provide support for the skin.

During ageing, in particular, there is a gradual loss in the proportion of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin.

When the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases, HA can be created for medical and aesthetic purposes using various techniques.

Phitogen Holding uses only the purest Hyaluronic Acid, with no nucleic acids and no residual proteins, bacterially derived from streptococcus equi, producing a pure, hypoallergenic derivative equivalent to endogenous hyaluronic acid.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on the skin

Latest generation aesthetic medicine acts preventively on tissue regeneration to better manage skin ageing.

Acting to repair the damage done to the skin in the ageing process, HA bestows new glow to the face and lips for a natural age-appropriate effect.

Thanks to its ultra-pure active ingredients and innovative extraction process, the cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid produced by Phitogen can bring visible and long-lasting benefits to the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid applied in aesthetic medicine:

FEATURES MOISTURISING PROPERTIES

Moisturises the skin deeply and regulates sebum production, preventing excess sebum from being produced.

ELIMINATES FREE RADICALS

Prevents the appearance of wrinkles caused by the harmful effects of air pollution.

PROMOTES THE FORMATION OF COLLAGEN

Stimulates fibroblasts to increase the production of collagen, which, together with elastin, is one of the proteins essential to the structure of the skin.

RESTORES VOLUME TO THE SKIN

It helps to fill the gap between collagen and elastin fibres, especially in mature skin, making the skin supple and firm again.

COUNTERACTS SKIN AGEING

Promotes the regeneration and natural freshness of the face, helping to maintain a youthful appearance despite ageing.

VISIBLY FILLS IN WRINKLES

It can smooth out visibly deep wrinkles.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on joints

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid on joints

Hyaluronic acid-based infiltrative therapeutic techniques also play an important role in orthopaedics.

In particular, they are effective in preventing and treating osteoarthritis, a condition that mainly affects knees and shoulders and leads to depolymerisation of Hyaluronic Acid.

Basically, in the joint affected by arthrosis, there is a reduction in the viscoelasticity of the synovial fluid which, in turn, leads to an imbalance in the metabolism of the hyaluronic acid physiologically in the joint.

This leads to pain, inflammation and general degeneration of joint function.

How does HA affect joints

By administering Hyaluronic Acid intra-joint, considerable benefits can be achieved.

This is because the infiltrations allow the right concentration of HA to reach the injured site, maximising the benefits and minimising the risks of side effects.

TISSUE REGENERATION

HA restores the biological balance lost due to joint disease by restoring the viscoelastic properties of synovial fluid.

CARTILAGE PRESERVATION

It protects cartilage from mechanical injury, reducing the progression of cartilage damage.

LUBRICATING EFFECT

It improves joint mechanics, reducing inflammation and pain.
