It is not surprising that the name of the Darsonval device is familiar to many. After all, treatment with alternating current for a wide range of diseases, from skin to neurological, has been used for a century. Only if earlier for this it was necessary to go to the clinic in the physiotherapy room, now you can carry out darsonvalization yourself with a device for home use. Darsonval is actively used after deep cleansing of the face by beauty salons. The modern device is equipped with several nozzles both for influencing the entire surface of the skin of the face, and for point darsonvalization of the problem area.
Indications and contraindications for the use of Darsonval for the face
Since Darsonval has a disinfecting effect on the skin, normalizes blood circulation, accelerates metabolic processes in tissues, it can be used to quickly free the face from the stratum corneum, resist the activity of fungal diseases that provoked the development of acne or rosacea, and accelerate the healing of scars after purulent acne.
Even if there are no serious skin defects associated with the development of pathogenic microflora on the face, then darsonvalization has a beneficial effect on dry, aging skin, giving it elasticity and freshness. For 5-7 procedures, you can achieve the effect of a facelift.
Treatment with alternating current is indicated for the following dermatological problems:
- types of acne;
- scars and scars;
- porous oily skin;
- pale, dry, thin skin;
- skin diseases: lichen, eczema, psoriasis;
- itching and peeling of allergic origin.
Regardless of the fact that there are a lot of indications, unfortunately, there are no less contraindications:
- cardiovascular diseases;
- tendency to intensive growth of facial hair;
- blood diseases;
- decrease in coagulability;
- the presence of a large number of moles (a specialist consultation is necessary);
- the presence of metal in the body, a pacemaker.
Darsonval is also contraindicated in case of pronounced rosacea on the face. If the vascular network appears moderately, then you still need to act with caution so as not to cause a strong rush of blood.
How to use Darsonval for the face from wrinkles and acne?
Of course, it is much more convenient to carry out the darsonvalization procedure while lying in a comfortable chair in the cabin. But after a few independent manipulations, everything will turn out no worse. There are only two possibilities for influencing the skin of the face: contact and non-contact (at a distance of 0.5-2 cm from the face). The method and one of the nozzles must be chosen, guided by the skin problem:
- The nozzle in the form of a drop is intended for the treatment of acne, acne, skin growths, which need to be acted upon pointwise, without touching the nearby skin.
- An electrode of any size with a fungus tip is suitable for wrinkle reduction.
I must say that the device has more nozzles, but only these two will be needed to work in the face area.
The selected tool is pre-wiped with alcohol, dried. The face also needs to be prepared for the procedure by removing makeup, making a light massage. Before darsonvalization, you should not generously lubricate your face with a moisturizing or oily cream. On the contrary, it is better to wet the necessary areas well after washing and sprinkle with talcum powder.
Point non-contact effect on acne will require a duration of 3-10 minutes with a course of 15 procedures. For skin rejuvenation, it will be necessary to carry out 3 times a year for 20 procedures lasting 15-20 minutes each. Removal of complex skin formations should be carried out only in a medical institution.
