Correlation exists between water content and Hyaluronic acid content of dermal tissue. Alterations in hyaluronic acid content and metabolism are known to accompany the maturation and aging of human skin. Aging of the skin is also accompanied by deterioration of the mechanical properties that is a result of altered viscoelastic properties of the intercellular matrix. These findings imply that there is a relationship between healthy young skin and the presence of a hydrated, viscoelastic Hyaluronic acid network in the intercellular matrix.
The mechanism of CLARIVISC® is physical and not chemical. It replaces the lost hyaluronic acid to smooth facial wrinkles and folds, and binds water in your skin, to lift and give new firmness.
