All about hyaluronic acid

It is known that hyaluronic acid has anti-aging properties: this substance is widely used in aesthetic medicine. In fact, it is a molecule that is naturally contained in our body, and for the first time in the 70s, it was used in all that concerns eye surgery.

Once this molecule was removed from the crests of terrestrial chickens, today it is produced in laboratories due to the fermentation of certain bacteria. Because it is produced synthetically, it adapts better to the human body.

Hyaluronic acid has effects that do not persist for long, and therefore, to maintain the effects obtained, it is necessary to regularly deliver this molecule to its body.
