AN INNOVATIVE FORMULA FOR HYALURONIC ACID PRESENTED AT ISIAT 2021 - KRACOW
In the past few years, the interest and the conversation around hyaluronic acid (HA) has been rising.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural molecule that can be found in the skin, eyes, joints and other tissues of the human body, with different functions. Hyaluronic acid concentration physiologically decreases with aging and in presence of certain diseases affecting the joints. The benefits of restoring an adequate concentration in the tissues by means of injections of hyaluronic acid have been demonstrated. This process, or treatment, entailing the infiltration of hyaluronic acid in a joint, is called viscosupplementation.
Viscosupplementation is more effective when the characteristics of the administered hyaluronic acid solution mimic those of the natural synovial fluid.
