News & Research:

  • Hyaluronic Acid as a Treatment Option for Pressure Ulcers - Medscape, 2/10/14 - "One of the components of the extracellular matrix, hyaluronic acid is present in skin, cartilage, bone, and brain, among other tissues. It has proved valuable in neurosurgery and dermatology because hyaluronic acid and degradation products can modulate wound healing. [8] Numerous studies have demonstrated the usefulness of hyaluronic acid in skin lesions and cartilage defects, in glial cell culture, and in the regeneration/increase of sperm motility ... Physiologically, the key characteristic of this molecule is its high hydroscopicity, which serves to regulate tissue hydration and osmotic balance" - See hyaluronic acid at Amazon.com.
  • Three Treatments Shown to Work Against Wrinkles - NYTimes.com, 8/18/08 - "A recent review in The Archives of Dermatology concludes that three anti-aging treatments are proven clinically effective: the topical application of retinol; carbon dioxide laser resurfacing; and injection of hyaluronic acid, a moisture-retaining acid that occurs naturally in the skin"


  • Oral hyaluronan relieves wrinkles: a double-blinded, placebo-controlled study over a 12-week period - Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol. 2017 Jul 18 - "Sixty Japanese male and female subjects aged 22-59 years who presented with crow's feet wrinkles were randomly assigned to the HA 2 k or HA 300 k at 120 mg/day or the placebo group. The subjects were administered HA at a rate of 120 mg/day or a placebo for 12 weeks ... During the study period, the HA groups showed better level of the whole sulcus volume ratio, wrinkle area ratio, and wrinkle volume ratio than the placebo group. After 8 weeks of ingestion, the HA 300 k group showed significantly diminished wrinkles compared with the placebo group. Skin luster and suppleness significantly improved after 12 weeks in all groups compared with the baseline" - [Nutra USA] - See hyaluronic acid at Amazon.com.
