AH is found in almost every cell that goes into body tissues, but it has a half life (time for the molecule to be excreted by the body) of less than three days, so it is essential that the body can quickly recover these reserves.
The effects of HA:
- To benefit of all these positive effects of hyaluronic acid, is very important that the administration is be constant for a period of at least 2 or 4 months.
- It is important to know that using creams based on HA (heavily promoted on every channel) won’t have the amazing results that were promised. This acid doesn’t have the ability to penetrate the skin, because it has a very large molecule. You can possibly get the effects of moisture, but the wrinkles will not disappear, nor will improve. If you want to see any results, you can use products that have in their composition fragmented AH (chopped), so it can penetrate the skin. It is best to start an oral administration of hyaluronic acid tablets, which are easily found in pharmacies.
- Besides its beneficial effects, you should know that HA stimulates cell proliferation (and the keratinocyte proliferation), so it can lead to stimulating the migration of malignant tumor cells in the vascular and lymphatic torrents. It also plays an important role in inflammatory processes.
Hyaluronic acid is a moisture magnet — it has the ability to attract and then lock water into the skin. By drawing moisture deep into the skin, it plumps up the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. “Products that contain hyaluronic acid are particularly effective for oily complexions, but they’re a great choice for all skin types,” says Dennis Gross, MD, the founder of Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin decline, so products that list it as the first or second ingredient are especially beneficial in treating the effects of aging.
