All modern women have heard about the procedure called “face biorevitalization”, but not everyone has had a chance to experience it. One of the reasons for this is the lack of awareness, as well as a lot of conflicting information regarding the effectiveness and possible harm of the technique. Consider all the most important things you need to know about face biorevitalization.
Biorevitalization or mesotherapy – which is better?
In view of the wide range of procedures offered in beauty salons to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin, it is not difficult to get confused and quickly choose one or another technology. So, very often women cannot decide what will be more effective – mesotherapy or biorevitalization. To clarify this, we need to consider these technologies in more detail, taking into account indications and expected results. But you can immediately notice that biorevitalization of the face is one of the varieties of mesotherapy, so these procedures have a lot in common.
Mesotherapy is a technique that came to the cosmetology field from medicine, in which it has been successfully and widely used for a long time. It is based on the introduction into the subcutaneous structures of cocktails of various biologically active components, including hyaluronic acid, amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, peptides, plant extracts, trace elements. Provides an effective effect on the skin for its transformation.
The main purposes of the procedure for the face are:
- aging skin;
- changes in the oval of the face (associated with the “sagging” of tissues or the formation of fat folds);
- unhealthy skin tone;
- dark spots.
Unlike classical mesotherapy, biorevitalization of the face is a procedure of much less intensity, sparing. It involves the introduction of hyaluronic acid into the dermal layers – both pure, without additives, and with various additional ingredients (amino acids, antioxidants, peptides, etc.). At the same time, regardless of the list of additives in the preparation for the procedure, hyaluronic acid is the main component contained in the largest amount. The indications for this technique are as follows:
- excessive dryness of the skin;
- skin laxity;
- unhealthy tone of the face;
- increased greasiness of the skin;
- enlarged pores;
- uneven skin relief;
- rehabilitation after chemical peeling, dermabrasion, plastic surgery;
- pigmentation, etc.
The difference between the procedures under consideration is also related to the age at which facial biorevitalization and mesotherapy can be done, as well as the speed of the onset of a positive effect. It is believed that it is better to resort to the biorevitalization procedure no earlier than the age of 25, while mesotherapy is allowed from the age of 18. At the same time, the effect of introducing hyaluronic acid in a high concentration is noticeable after the first procedure, and the results of skin saturation with a meso-cocktail should be expected no earlier than 1-2 weeks after the start of the course.
Given all this, it is impossible to unequivocally determine which of the two procedures is better – it all depends on the skin problems and the desired effect. Therefore, it is recommended, first of all, to contact a competent specialist who will be able to assess the condition of the skin according to the necessary criteria, determine its needs and the possibilities of methods in terms of recovery and improvement.
Biorevitalization – effect
Hyaluronic acid injections are aimed at natural revitalization, healing of the skin, activation of biochemical processes in the dermal layers. This substance is not alien to the body, but, on the contrary, is an important component of many of its tissues and is one of the main regulators of the level of moisture, turgor, elasticity, and healthy skin color.
By producing the amount of hyaluronic acid required to maintain the normal state of skin tissues at a young age, then (from about 25-28 years old) the body begins to lose its reserves by about 1% every year, which manifests itself in signs of aging. In addition, a decrease in the level of hyaluronate occurs in the presence of dermatological and some other problems.
The introduction of this substance normalizes the water balance, stimulates the synthesis of connective tissue fibers, thereby increasing the firmness and elasticity of the skin, restoring a healthy shade to the face. The procedure helps to significantly improve the quality of the skin, rejuvenate in the shortest possible time and slow down age-related processes, reduce skin defects. Biorevitalization, the photos before and after which confirm its effectiveness, can be of great help even with very loose skin.
The introduction of “hyaluron” under the skin can be carried out not only by injection, but also by non-traumatic methods. The most used of them is laser biorevitalization, in which the epidermis is saturated with an active substance under the action of the energy of a diode laser. This technique ensures uniform distribution of hyaluronic acid over a large area of the face, but with less deep penetration. The advantages of the procedure are:
- minimum discomfort and side effects;
- no need for lengthy recovery procedures.
Injection biorevitalization of the face – what is it?
Classical biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid – multiple microinjections performed locally according to a certain technique (“point by point”, “grid”, “fan”, etc.). Injections are carried out with a special syringe with a short thin needle or an injector, which makes it possible to more accurately dose the drug. In this case, the forehead, cheekbones, cheeks, chin, eyelids, skin around the eyes or other areas are affected. The use of a needle allows you to deliver the active substance to the required depth, exactly in the problem area, but you have to face a number of disadvantages:
- a large number of restrictions during the rehabilitation period.
Biorevitalization – preparations
The effectiveness and quality of the technique is directly dependent on which preparations for face biorevitalization are used. And the main requirements for these products, under which it becomes possible to start renewal processes in skin cells, are:
- the concentration of hyaluronate in the preparation should be at least 15 mg / ml, and the molecular weight should be about 1 million daltons;
- the use of non-stabilized (not chemically modified) hyaluronic acid;
- the consistency of the drug is viscoelastic, gel.
- IAL-SYSTEM ACP;
- Teosyal Meso;
