Hyaluronic acid injections are marketed in the UK as the IAL system. It is a brand that is manufactured in Italy, and was launched in the U.K. in late 2003.
As the skin ages, there is a gradual reduction in the amount of hyaluronic acid. The drop in HA starts at around the age of 18-20 years, and can be contributing factor in later years to a loss of skin elasticity and formation of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has, for a number of year, been used to fill out deeper lines and wrinkles, or to enhance lips.
A relatively new technique using a specially prepared version of hyaluronic acid for mesotherapy linked to a specific injection technique allows an experienced practitioner to directly inject hyaluronic acid into larger areas of skin to help improve skin quality and hydration.It improves the condition of the dermis and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and the body`s own hyaluronic acid.
It also enhances the body`s defense against free radicals, thereby improving cell function and contributing to a fresher and more youthful skin appearance. At Kosmoderma, IAL injections are used to rejuvenate acne scarred skin prior to Fractional laser treatment.
