HYALURONIC ACID (HA)
What does Hyaluronic acid offer to the body?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in the human body. It is the key molecule involved in the process of hydration and maintaining of the skin’s moisture. HA has the unique capacity in retaining huge quantities of water. It retains about 1.000 times its weight in water. This unique ability makes HA one of the most valuable “allies” in maintaining a more youthful complexion. It can also improve skin texture and promote a firm, revitalized and radiant skin.
A few words about Skin Aging
Skin aging is a multifactorial biological process. In an attempt to categorize the factors that contribute to this process, we would divide it into two categories:
The intrinsic or innate aging includes all those biological factors that over time affect all the organs of the human body. The decline in the production of estrogen and progesterone, sex-related hormones, begins in the mid-20s. It is proven that the deficiency of these hormones results in the degradation of collagen, dryness, loss of elasticity and atrophy of the skin.
The extrinsic aging is the result of exposure to external factors. Over exposure to the sun’s UV rays (UV radiation), modern eating (food) habits, smoking and living conditions (or lifestyle choices) promote the skin’s aging process.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) & Skin Aging
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), which, as mentioned above, has the unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. Gradually, as skin ages and due to factors that have not been fully clarified, a decrease in the production of epidermal Hyaluronic acid by the body is observed. Consequently, the skin becomes dehydrated, loses its elasticity, atrophies and looks older.
Hyaluronic acid: The ‘Key” to Hydrated and Youthful Looking Skin
In the world of skin care and the “rejuvenation industry” many “magic” ingredients are now a thing of the past. Hyaluronic acid seems to be here to stay. The ability to bind water molecules has proven to be an excellent anti-aging property for millions of women and men around the world.
- It fills in the fine and deeper wrinkles in almost every part of the face.
- It corrects fine lines.
- It helps to reshape the facial contour and restore the oval of the face.
Aesthetic Applications of Hyaluronic Acid
In addition to its beneficial role in anti-aging, hyaluronic acid has been widely used in a number of further aesthetic applications in recent years. Some of its facial applications are the following:
- It increases volume & corrects the shape of the lips
- It eliminates dark circles around the eyes
- It improves the shape of the nose
Hyaluronic acid can also be used in many parts of the body to provide solutions to problems of asymmetry or even functional problems.
- It adds volume to areas such as calves, buttocks, décolleté
- It smoothes out the post-traumatic skin scars
- It improves the contour of the buttocks
- It smoothes out the unsightly wrinkles on the décolleté
- It improves the hands appearance as it gives more firmness on the hands
Hyaluronic acid can also be used in the field of gynecology for vaginal hydration in menopause and restoration of moisture in the area, resulting in the improvement of sexual life.
How Is It Different from Botox?
Unlike Botox, Hyaluronic acid does not allow for facial muscles to relax. The combination of Botox and HA by an experienced surgeon is ideal for optimal results.

My visit to Surgishape Medical Clinic was a unique experience! I was actually helped with Laser liposuction and despite what I had heard the results were truly unique (and permanent).
A big thank you to the whole team who with their knowledge and experience helped me feel better about myself and my body!Maria K
I had struggled for quite some time with diets and exercise to lose some extra pounds, but in some areas I was not getting the desired result. Fortunately, an acquaintance of mine, who had visited Surgishape Medical Clinic, urged me to visit her as well to find a definitive solution to my problem. There, I was recommended by the specialized doctors of the clinic to undergo Smartlipo liposuction. For me it is now considered one of the best if not the best remedy for buns and in turn I am already recommending it to my circle! I have no signs of surgery and most importantly I had almost no pain after it!Konstantina D.
My experience was excellent. I was always worried about the result in case I did any treatment on my face. I didn't want to look too "frozen", nor to lose my expressiveness completely. I found the solution at Surgishape Medical Clinic. I was completely happy with the final result which looks completely natural. As my skin is sensitive, I had some small irritations in the area of the buttock, but they subsided within a few hours. I would like at this point to thank everyone for their care and interest.Argyro K.
Smartlipo is exactly what every woman is looking for after pregnancy I "dared" it after the 2 births that gave me my 2 wonderful children, but left the abdominal area sore and relaxed.
I trusted Surgishape Medical Clinic and my right choice was confirmed. I found my self-confidence again, now I am both a mother and a woman, they are two inviolable qualities that must go hand in hand. Thank you very much for everything!Stefania I.
