Improving everyday life with hyaluronic acid


What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic Acid vials

Hyaluron is a medication containing hyaluronic acid and is used in the form of injections to treat joint problems. It is specifically approved for people with osteoarthritis (osteoarthritis), particularly of the knee.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in joint cartilage and plays an important role in lubrication and shock absorption. In people with osteoarthritis, the natural hyaluronic acid content in the joint is reduced. Hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the affected joint to improve joint function and relieve pain.

The exact mechanism by which hyaluronic acid works is not fully understood, but it is believed that it improves lubrication by increasing the viscosity of synovial fluid, thereby reducing friction in the joint. This can lead to a reduction in pain and improved mobility. 

Limitations of treatment

Hyaluronic acid improves lubrication and reduces symptoms

However, hyaluronic acid does not create new cartilage!


As osteoarthritis progresses, treatment with hyaluronic acid through an injection into the affected joint becomes increasingly less effective.


There must be a minimum amount of articular cartilage present for a hyaluronic acid injection to improve joint lubrication. 

Basically, the treatment of osteoarthritis with hyaluronic acid is a symptom-oriented therapy. 

Our patients also gain time thanks to the hyaluronic acid. 

However, even with hyaluronic acid, the course of osteoarthritis does not change much over a longer period of time, so if the symptoms and complaints increase, a prosthesis (custom-made knee) may become necessary.

The frequency of hyaluronic injections can vary from case to case and is usually determined by the treating doctor. Typically Hyalgan is administered as a series of injections 4-5 times per week!

The number of injections and the exact schedule may vary depending on the severity of the joint problems, the patient's response to treatment, and other individual factors.

To relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis, therapy with the body's own components is possible.

For this purpose, some blood is taken from the vein, which is then mixed with hyaluronic acid in a closed system.

The individual components are separated by centrifugation.

The relevant, endogenous regenerative elements such as blood plasma and platelets are injected into the respective joint as a mixture with hyaluronic acid.

Lubrication of the joint and anti-inflammatory


Platelets play a key role in tissue repair mechanisms. They provide essential growth factors that are involved in the formation of new tissue.

Blood plasma contains many factors that are necessary for cell metabolism.

In combination with hyaluronic acid, which is part of the synovial fluid and cartilage, the joint is lubricated and inflammation is inhibited with its own biological factors.

The regeneration of the tissue is continuously stimulated. 

Hyaluron and ACP (Autologous Conditioned Plasma) are two different approaches to treating joint problems, especially osteoarthritis. Here are some differences:

  1. Active ingredient:

    • Hyaluronic acid: Contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in the joint.

    • ACP therapy: Uses the body's own blood components, especially the enriched plasma, to promote healing processes.

  2. Application:

    • Hyaluron: Administered in the form of injections directly into the affected joint.

    • ACP therapy: Involves the collection of the patient's blood, centrifugation of which results in the concentration of growth factors, and the injection of this enriched plasma back into the joint.

  3. Mechanism of action:

    • Hyaluron: Improves joint function by lubricating and cushioning the joint.

    • ACP therapy: The aim is to promote the natural healing processes in the joint by releasing growth factors.

  4. Treatment cycle:

    • Hyaluronic: Usually requires a series of injections over a period of time.

    • ACP therapy: Single injection or a series, depending on the doctor's recommendation.

  5. Effectiveness and research:

    • Both approaches have shown positive results in various studies. However, effectiveness may vary from person to person.


It is important to emphasize that the choice between hyaluronic acid and ACP therapy depends on various factors, including the type and severity of the joint problems, the patient's individual response to the treatment and the doctor's recommendation. A discussion with an orthopedist or rheumatologist is crucial to determine the most appropriate treatment option.


Hyaluron VS ACP VS Cellular Matrix



  • Hyaluronic knee injections are a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in the doctor's office.



  • Hyaluronic knee injections can be used to treat a variety of knee conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.



  • The injections are generally well tolerated and have few side effects.



  • Hyaluronic knee injections can provide significant pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects in the knee joint.

CELLULAR MATRIX tubes enable the preparation of autologous platelet-rich plasma (Regen PRP®) in combination with uncrosslinked hyaluronic acid (HA) in a closed system.

Regen PRP: The platelet concentrate prepared using RegenLab technology provides an autologous reservoir of growth factors.

Hyaluronic acid enhances the activity of various molecules contained in platelet-rich plasma to provide additional benefits to patients with OA.

Both PRP and HA have been widely used to improve joint lubrication, reduce inflammation, and influence the catabolic microenvironment of the joint, with the aim of not only reducing clinical symptoms but also slowing the progression of OA.

When PRP and HA are used in combination, these effects are enhanced and prolonged. HA forms a bioactive framework in which platelets gradually release their growth factors. Regen PRP has no negative influence on the mechanical, elastic or viscous properties of HA.

CELLULAR MATRIX is a unique, medical device-approved, patented technology that enables the safe preparation of a cell-friendly PRP-HA network in a closed system in which platelets and plasma components are preserved.
