When we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decrease, our cells lose the reproduction capacity progressively. We also lose with age the molecular weight of hyaluronic acid, so we are unable of retain water in our skin. We can see this process when we pick our skin with the fingers. In young people the skin go back to the original position quick, when we age and we are older, the recuperation of the skin decrease… This reduction in the volume of the skin is what cause wrinkles.
Is no needed an allergy test, we inject in the skin the product, that interact naturally with our tissues without reacting, without alteration of the characteristics of our skin. It has a beneficial effect hydrating our skin and giving us the volume that we also lose with age. So it actually refills our tissues.
There have been negative effects and allergies only in a 3% of the patients. So we don’t recommend this product to people that already has an allergy to chicken or eggs.
