Biorevitalization of the face: description of the procedure, advantages and disadvantages
Biorevitalization of the face is the most popular cosmetic procedure related to invasive methods of rejuvenation. With the help of injections of hyaluronic acid, you can prolong the youthfulness of the face, eliminate wrinkles and restore skin elasticity. This technique is considered one of the most effective and effective in cosmetology.
The essence of facial biorevitalization
Biorevitalization is a procedure for injecting hyaluronic acid under the skin. It is well known that hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the human epidermis, the amount of which decreases over time. The lack of this component leads to undesirable consequences in the form of:
- Loss of skin elasticity;
- Dryness and peeling;
- Insufficient moisture;
- Flabbiness of the skin;
- The appearance of wrinkles.
Biorevitalization is aimed directly at restoring the balance of hyaluronic acid in the epidermis.
Replenishment of hyaluronic acid in the skin from the very first procedure helps to cope with pigmentation problems, lack of moisture. It is injections, that is, the introduction of acid molecules under the skin, that are the most effective, as they stimulate the smoothing of wrinkles and slow down the aging process of the skin.
Types of biorevitalization
It is generally accepted that biorevitalization is an exclusively invasive procedure. However, technology does not stand still, continuing to develop, and new methods of cosmetic procedures appear. So a biorevitalization session can be done in two ways:
- By injection;
- Special apparatus.
The most popular is injection biorevitalization, during which hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin with a syringe. These injections violate the integrity of the skin and leave small swelling – papules, passing a few days after the session.
Non-injection biorevitalization is carried out by a hardware method. To perform the procedure, a laser is used that injects hyaluronic acid using low-intensity laser radiation.
The only drawback of non-injection biorevitalization is the shorter duration of the effect.
Laser biorevitalization has a number of advantages in comparison with injections:
- No side effects;
- Minimum contraindications;
- maintaining the integrity of the epidermis.
This method of biorevitalization is the most gentle, it is even referred to as a spa procedure. However, it is difficult to deliver enough hyaluronic acid to the deep layers of the skin with a laser, which makes the effect last less than after injections.
For biorevitalization, injections of hyaluronic acid are commonly used. Some cosmetologists use not only classic preparations, preferring various manufacturers that add useful substances to hyaluronic acid that increase the effectiveness of the procedure.
The most common drugs used in biorevitalization:
- IAL-system ACP is an Italian product for skin rejuvenation and treatment, suitable for all skin types;
- Jalupro and Jalupro HMW is a high concentration hyaluronic acid preparation containing amino acids: glycine, L-proline, L-lysine and L-leucine;
- Juvederm hydrate is an American-made drug that contains, in addition to hyaluronic acid, mannitol, which protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals and protects the acid from rapid breakdown;
- Revofil Aquashine – a complex of peptides and hyaluronic acid with a classic anti-aging effect, which allows you to eliminate age-related pigmentation and whiten the skin;
- Hyaluform is a Russian-made hyaluronic acid stabilized by the three-phase method, which has a lifting effect and helps in modeling face shapes.
The effectiveness of each of these drugs has been proven and tested by many cosmetologists. It is necessary to choose a solution according to the needs of each client and according to the type of skin.
Indications for use
Not everyone is prescribed and advised the biorevitalization procedure. Injections are not recommended for women under thirty years of age unless absolutely necessary. The exception is a very dry skin type, in which the procedure can be performed at the age of twenty-five to twenty-eight years.
Indications for biorevitalization:
- Dehydration of the skin and excessive dryness;
- Loss of elasticity of the epidermis;
- Small and mimic wrinkles;
- Damage to the skin under the influence of UV (ultraviolet rays);
- Deterioration of the surface of the skin associated with smoking and stress;
- The need to restore the epidermis after surgery or serious cosmetic procedures;
- Age spots, dullness and unhealthy skin tone;
- Enlarged pores, abundant secretion of subcutaneous fat;
- Puffiness and bruising, as well as scars and stretch marks.
Among other things, the procedure helps to get rid of rosacea and accelerates skin regeneration. Despite the effectiveness and versatility of biorevitalization, the result is not instantaneous, but cumulative.
How is the biorevitalization procedure carried out?
Before deciding on biorevitalization, you need to familiarize yourself with all aspects, including the process of implementing the procedure. Depending on the method chosen, the session itself is different.
The procedure for injection biorevitalization is as follows:
- An anesthetic cream is applied to the skin of the face for half an hour or an hour;
- Twenty minutes before the injections, the drug is taken out of the refrigerator so that it warms up to room temperature;
- Hyaluronic acid is injected with a thin needle under the skin evenly over the area of the treated area of the face;
- The skin is cooled by applying an anti-inflammatory antibacterial cream.
After injections, redness, swelling, injection marks and papules are observed for another two to three days. The procedures are carried out in a course of up to four sessions with an interval of two weeks or a month, depending on the condition of the skin.
Laser biorevitalization is carried out according to a different system:
- The face is cleaned of makeup and the surface of the epidermis is disinfected;
- A pulsed action is directed to the skin with a laser to open transport channels between cells;
- A thin layer of gel with a low content of hyaluronic acid is applied;
- The laser is switched to constant radiation mode, changing the wavelength and affecting the skin of the face;
- At the end, a caring cream, lotion or serum is applied.
The non-injection version of the procedure lasts about an hour and requires more frequent repetition. So the course of laser biorevitalization consists of three to ten sessions with an interval of one week.
