- Poly(L-lactide) is a biodegradable material with good bio-absorbability and bio-compatibility. After degradation in the body, PLLA products are excreted by metabolism and thus has no harmful side effects to the human body. It is for these reasons that PLLA products are currently widely used in the field of medicine, such as for one-time infusion equipment, medical surgical suture, drug delivery carriers, tissue engineering scaffolds, bone anchors, injectable microcapsules, microspheres, implants, elastomer materials for organ support, etc.
- PLLA extracted from Alpha Hydroxy Acid, specially from plant, is absorbable, and bio-compatible polymer. PLLA is totally degraded and absorbed in water, carbon dioxide, and sugar , thus it does not remain in the human body. Moreover, collagen is generated.
- Poly-L-lactic acid including POLY, slowly and naturally, is collagen generated material that can applied to the body. PLLA has been used in more than 30 countries during the decades from 1999 for the injecting in the faces.
- The term biodegradable is used to describe materials that decompose through the actions of bacteria, fungi, and other living organisms – simply it has the ability to break down or decompose back into the natural environment without causing harm. Examples of well known biodegradable materials used in medical industries are PLLA, PLGA, PGA, PDO and PCL.
- Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar (polysaccharide) that is present in body tissues, such as in skin and cartilage.
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, occurs naturally throughout the human body and most animals. It’s primary function is to bind to water which gives it a viscous “Jello” type texture.
- HA is becoming one of the most researched substances in the medical community today. Thousands of studies and trials including in the areas of orthopedics, dermatology and eye surgery are showing much promise.
- Hyaluronic acid is essential for healthy youthful looking skin and for the health of synovial fluid which supports cushioning of the bones and joints throughout the body.
- The skin responds best when hyaluronic acid is introduced from the inside out – the dermis to the epidermis.
- Hyaluronic acid supplementation is effective due to its capability to be absorbed through the intestinal tract.
- Supplementation with hyaluronic acid is crucial due to decreased synthesis and depletion that occurs with aging.
