summary of the article

What are the effects of hyaluronic acid on the skin?

THE effects of hyaluronic acid can be summarized in 4 points effects:

  • Anti-aging
  • Hydration
  • Tone
  • Elasticity

As you age, the skin becomes dehydrated, weakened, thinned and wrinkled. This aging of the skin, which can sometimes be visible from the age of 30 with the appearance of fine lines, is explained by the progressive decrease of the collagen, of the elastic fibers and of hyaluronic acid, naturally present in the skin: these are three elements which preserve the youth and firmness of your dermis.

Hyaluronic acid
fills intercellular spaces, and acts to keep tissues hydrated. You will have understood: for healthy and perfectly plump skin, this molecule is essential!

Hyaluronic acid and the human body

We saw it, hyaluronic acid is a humectants naturally produced by the human body.

It acts on several levels:

  • It participates in the elasticity of the cartilage
  • It protects the articulations
  • It works for the healing and maintenance of a good hydration.

Where is hyaluronic acid found?

  • Muscles
  • Joints
  • skin and eyes

Over the years, the body's ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases, which contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.




Two types of hyaluronic acids

High molecular weight hyaluronic acid

This type of hyaluronic acid aims to retain the water in the tissues of the upper layer of the epidermis by forming a protective veil against dehydration, for a smoothing and moisturizing result. Its molecules are large in size, which prevents it from penetrating the epidermis of the skin in depth. Its action is called “surface”.

Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid

Also called “micro-fragmented hyaluronic acid”, this molecule of microscopic size has the ability to penetrate deep into the tissues of the skin and swell on contact with water. Its action is global, because it acts both on hydration and suppleness, while preventing skin aging.




Injections of hyaluronic acid to plump the skin

Dermatologists and aesthetic medicine professionals inject small amounts hyaluronic acid on strategic points of the face: the nasolabial folds and the cheekbones are targeted here. The goal? Reshape the face. Plan a budget of around 300 euros for an injection, for a period of around 12 months. But if you want to take advantage of the many benefits of hyaluronic acid, integrating it into your beauty routine is a particularly effective solution!

Benefits of hyaluronic acid in cosmetics

Hygroscopic properties

Hyaluronic acid has properties hygroscopic : it acts like a molecular sponge and has the ability to retain almost 1000 times its weight in water, which gives it its highly moisturizing and smoothing action.


Applied to the skin, it fills the interstices present between the cells and activates the synthesis of collagen, renowned for the tonicity of skin tissue.

A smoothing and moisturizing action

Hyaluronic acid prevents the appearance of rides and fine lines : thanks to this molecule, their development is slower, and the appearance of existing ones is minimized.


Hyaluronic acid also has a smoothing action on the nasolabial folds and the folds located around the lips and gives the skin a supple, firm and plump appearance by fighting against ptosis, loss of elasticity and cellular aging.

Healthier, plumper skin

Hyaluronic acid delivers progressive power. Thanks to it, day after day, you preserve the health and beauty of your skin: it becomes plumper and remains radiant over the years.

UV protected skin

Hyaluronic acid plays a central role in the healing of the skin and protects it against UV rays: it is these properties that make it a essential anti-aging active ingredient.

For which skin types?

In reality, since hyaluronic acid is present naturally in the skin, it can adapt to all skin types. This molecule is particularly recommended in case of dehydration and weak to moderate skin slackening. It is therefore often used on mature skin, but not only. It also acts to prevent the onset of aging, when used from the age of 25, by both men and women.


So that this powerful active ingredient provides maximum hydration your skin, and helps you fight against the first signs of aging, integrate it into your beauty routine: opt for serums, gels, body milks and creams formulated with hyaluronic acid, from 30 years !
