How is Hyaluronic Acid and the Snail connected?

What's a Snail got to do with the prevention of Antiaging you ask? Have you ever watched a snail sliding slowly along a leaf and noticed it's glow and hydration as it effortlessly glides along on its merry way? It was by researching the humble Snail that it gave scientist insight into Hyaluronic Acid benefits and its amazing antiaging benefits.


Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found both in snails and within our body. It can be found in the skin, joints, and eyes absorbing and retaining moisture to ensure everything is running smoothly. Hyaluronic Acid is mostly found in the skin, maintaining moisture levels.

So why do we need to add more if Hyaluronic Acid is already in the skin?


One of the skin's primary functions is to maintain the lipid barrier which retains water and blocks potentially damaging outside sources (free radicals) from infiltrating the skin. As we age, this barrier becomes less and less effective. It is occurring, in part, due to the decrease in the production of our naturally-occurring Hyaluronic Acid.

In the ASPYA Clinic, one of our most popular treatments is our Hyaluronic Acid Infusion. Our Skin Needling Infusion+ Facial is a great way to kick start your HA levels. With regular skin needling treatments, it increases hydration and drastically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

We also offer an extensive range of products that will hydrate your skin, which can be applied topically for home care use. Our range of Ultraderm moisturisers and serums balance out and boost our naturally decreasing supply of HA and give your skin more of what it needs to function at peak effectiveness.


Hyaluronic Acid also has a unique ability to regulate and stabilise inflammation by maintaining moisture around the affected area. This constant supply of moisture allows our body to heal naturally and to work more efficiently.

It's antibacterial benefits actively fight off infection while the body naturally heals inflammation.


Protecting your skin daily from the damaging effects of the sun is an essential step to fight the effects of aging. Hyaluronic Acid can help protect the skin from UVB rays and prevent sunspots.
