How to care for the face after biorevitalization?
Unfortunately, the aging process is irreversible. It cannot be avoided, but it can be paused or slowed down. Today, cosmetology offers a huge number of different procedures to combat age-related skin changes. One such procedure is an invasive method called biorevitalization.
This method involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the skin. The result of such a cosmetic procedure is skin hydration, whitening and slowing down age-related processes.
It is important to know not only when and under what conditions to carry out such a procedure, but also how to care for the face after biorevitalization so that the effect lasts as long as possible. Also, proper care helps to avoid some of the unpleasant consequences that may occur after the procedure.
Preparation for biorevitalization
In order to understand whether you should use the biorevitalization procedure, you need to know what indications it has for use.
It is recommended to use this procedure after 25-30 years. Indications for carrying out:
- With dryness and dehydration of the skin, which causes sagging;
- As a preventive measure for the manifestation of skin aging. Typically, this procedure is used by people who are exposed to harmful factors: UV radiation, sudden changes in temperature, stress and bad habits that invariably affect the condition of the skin;
- As a restorative agent after traumatic skin procedures. For example, laser resurfacing or chemical peeling;
- To eliminate age spots, circles and swelling under the eyes, improve skin tone.
It is necessary to narrow the pores to prevent increased sebum secretion.
The biorevitalization method has no time limits and it can be done at any time of the year. Preparation for the procedure is very simple.
For a few days, you need to give up the following:
- smoking and alcohol;
- Coffee, black tea, energy drinks;
- Visits to the solarium and the beach;
- Anticoagulants, even of plant origin (blood thinners);
- Sleeping pills and sedatives.
In order to avoid swelling, subcutaneous hemorrhages and papules, it is necessary to strengthen the vessels and capillaries with vitamin K.
If during the planned period before the procedure there were exacerbations of any diseases, the procedure should be postponed. To contraindications carrying out include:
- Viral diseases;
- Skin rashes of any etiology;
- autoimmune disorders;
- fungal diseases;
- bacterial diseases;
- Damage to the skin of any etiology;
- Oncological tumors;
- Allergy to the drug;
- Prenatal period and lactation period.
On the days of the menstrual cycle, the pain threshold is lowered, so the procedure can be delayed, as it may be more painful.
Usually, a course of 3-5 biorevitalization procedures is required, with a break between them of 2-3 weeks. Preparation for repeated sessions is the same as for the initial one. In the pauses between treatments, you can use moisturizing creams with hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is part of our cells. It is responsible for moisturizing the skin. As we age, the cells produce less and less of it, and the skin becomes flabby and dry. As a result, wrinkles appear. And the biorevitalization procedure delivers hyaluronic acid to the lower layers of the epidermis.
Biorevitalization does not smooth wrinkles. The main effect is hydration. Also, it is not able to solve the problem of skin peeling. If there are moles on the skin, the procedure is not contraindicated. Injections are carried out next to them.
The course of the procedure
Biorevitalization is a course of hyaluronic acid injections, which are done in almost the entire visible area of the upper body – face, neck, décolleté, hands. It is not cheap due to the cost of the drug itself.
Before the start of the procedure, the cosmetologist examines the skin and identifies contraindications. Also, the client must give written consent to biorevitalization. If you have any questions, you should ask your doctor.
Carry out from 3 to 5 procedures with breaks of 2-3 weeks. One session takes a professional from 30 minutes to an hour. Depends on the speed of the beautician and on the sensitivity of the client’s skin. It takes 10-15 minutes to inject 1 ml into one zone.
The procedure is well tolerated by clients, since during its implementation the master always uses anesthetics. But, there are especially sensitive areas, for example, the chin, between the eyebrows and the nasolabial folds. The steps of the procedure are described below.
Step 1: preparation for the procedure. Examination of the skin of the face and the exclusion of contraindications. Be sure to use disposable materials – sheets, hats, etc. A cosmetologist working with injections also uses personal protective equipment – a mask, glasses, gloves.
Step 2: disinfection. Disinfect pre-cleansed skin with a solution of chlorhexidine bigluconate.
Step 3: Anesthesia. A local anesthetic in the form of a cream is applied to the prepared, sterile skin over the entire surface. It is applied proportionally and individually for each client. It is applied to sensitive areas in a thicker layer.
Step 4: film overlay. A cling film is applied to the areas treated with an anesthetic for 30 minutes. Thus, an occlusion effect is created, in which the pores expand, the skin softens and moisturizes, and the anesthetic penetrates better and deeper.
Step 5: injection of the preparation based on hyaluronic acid. The drug includes the presence of an individual syringe in the package. After taking the drug into it, a control injection is made to check for soreness and immediate allergic reactions. If discomfort and allergies do not arise, proceed to the procedure.
Microampoules are pricked in a checkerboard pattern, starting from top to bottom. The area of the eyes and forehead is treated, then wrinkles, smiles and the lower third of the face, including the parotid area. A normal reaction to the drug is redness and swelling of the papules.
