What is Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as Sodium Hyaluronate, is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan which also exists naturally in the body such as in the skin, connective tissue and joint lubrication, so the risk of an allergy is classified lower.HA is a substance with sponge-like effect having the stunning capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture in the skin.HA has been the standard for many years as the leading ingredient to hydrate thirsty skin.As we age HA is degraded by the body, thus the loss of it in body results in older-looking skin that is characterized by static fine lines, wrinkles and folds.
Thanks to advanced technology we could build an ingredient by fermentation through natural biological processes that has been shown to be far superior to HA in hydrating the skin.
Entering cross-linking agent to HA, just as linking chains makes a stronger structure. Linking HA together forms a super hydrating matrix over the skin and delivers and keeps water to parched skin over time. Hyaluronic Acid is known to have an amazing water-binding capacity, making it ideal for skin moisturizing. Now cross-linked HA has more water-binding capacity in comparison with non-cross-linked HA! And that means skin is continuously hydrated, plump and healthy. By promoting the replacement of lost volume and attenuating grooves and wrinkles, this ensures a more youthful appearance and certain functional recovery of facial aesthetics.
So purified Cross-linked HA fillers are a very good choice for the correction of wrinkles and scars and are giving a high rate of satisfaction among patients.
What is Dr. ArJo® ?
Dr. ArJo® is an innovative sterilized cross-linked hyaluronic acid hydrogel which is formulated with greater resistance to degradation and longer remaining life. Dr. ArJo® uses hyaluronic acid produced through bio-fermentation. So after a slight chemical change in the laboratory it transforms to cross-linking hyaluronic acid, so that it is more stable, making the tissues firmer and retains its properties longer over time depending on the individual’s skin type factors, such as age, lifestyle and technique used by the medical professional, and over several months the skin slowly absorbs Dr. ArJo®.
