Biorevitalization is the delivery of hyaluronic acid to the deeper layers of the skin. This is done in order to activate cellular renewal of tissues, eliminate skin defects, accelerate metabolic processes. Hyaluronic acid biorevitalization can be either injectable or non-injection. Consider the indications, contraindications, methods of the procedure and possible complications in more detail.
Indications and contraindications for the procedure
Hyaluronic acid is produced by the human body itself. However, with age, its production decreases, resulting in a decrease in the rate of cell renewal and the level of skin hydration. In order to restore all this, substitution therapy with hyaluronic acid is carried out. Indications for such therapy are:
- loss of skin elasticity;
- excessive dryness of the skin;
- disturbances in the sebaceous glands;
- enlarged pores of the face;
- shallow wrinkles in the face, décolleté and neck;
- flabbiness of the skin;
- increased pigmentation;
- signs of photoaging of the skin.
Upon reaching the age of 25 years, the body reduces the rate of production of its own hyaluronic acid, and if up to 30 years this situation can be corrected, then in 40, and even more so in 50 years, this is no longer possible. It is then that biorevitalization comes to the rescue. Numerous reviews indicate its high performance.
The procedure has contraindications, but due to the fact that the manipulation is carried out by a substance that is natural for the body, there are relatively few of them:
- hypersensitivity or allergy to hyaluronic acid;
- oncological diseases;
- skin infections;
- focus of infection in the body;
- the presence of autoimmune diseases.
The procedure is performed 3-4 times with a time interval of one and a half to two weeks, so the price should be immediately multiplied by the number of desired and recommended procedures.
Hyaluronic acid biorevitalization can be carried out using native acid, as well as stabilized (the second name is modified). Native acid is unchanged, just such is synthesized in the tissues of the human body. Despite the fact that it decomposes quickly enough under the influence of hyaluronidase, it is very active. Most often it is used if uniform administration of the drug into the skin is required. This gives a lasting effect of rejuvenation and hydration. Biodegradation of a modified or stabilized acid is slower, but it does not stimulate collagen formation.
There are two methods for introducing hyaluronic acid into the skin – injection and non-injection. For the injection method, a syringe and a small diameter needle, as well as microcannulas are used. Non-injection technique involves the use of special equipment – a laser or apparatus that delivers a stream of oxygen under pressure. To understand the difference, turn to the table.
|Comparison criterion||Injection method||Injection-free method|
|Time spending||30 – 60 minutes||5 – 15 minutes|
|Morbidity||Requires pain relief||Painless|
|Traumatism||There is skin damage, in places of needle puncture||No skin damage|
|The distribution of the drug in the skin||Spot with subsequent distribution in tissues||Uniform|
|Rehabilitation||From 2 to 10 days||Not required|
|Appearance after the procedure||Unaesthetic||The effect of the procedure is noticeable immediately, the appearance is aesthetic|
|Place of use||Whole body||Only face, neck, décolleté|
|The number of necessary procedures||Small||More than using the injection method|
|Drug delivery in tissue||Accurately to the problem area||Uniform. Sometimes the desired effect is not achieved due to the individual characteristics of the skin, which does not pass hyaluronic acid deep into the skin|
|Side effects||High probability of occurrence||The probability of occurrence is significantly lower|
The price of biorevitalization depends not only on the method of the procedure, but also on the drug that will be used. At the same time, counting how much such a face rejuvenation costs, you need to know how many manipulations will be done, as well as the area where the procedure will be performed.
First, skin is cleansed at the site of the procedure, then an anesthetic cream is applied. When the patient opens the package with the drug, it is already drawn into the syringe, which will be manipulated. Then the specialist makes an injection into the problem area. At the injection site, papules appear, in which hyaluronic acid is located until the moment of resorption.
After the procedure is completed, an antibacterial cream is sometimes applied to reduce undesirable manifestations. After the procedure are observed:
After the procedure, special skin care is needed. Strict restrictions apply to the use of cosmetics, bath and water procedures, exposure to direct sunlight, touching the injection sites with your hands – they are valid for 2 – 3 days after biorevitalization.
A non-injection procedure is similar to skin care manipulations. If laser biorevitalization is used, then the problem area is first cleaned, then a gel containing hyaluronic acid is heated to 40 degrees Celsius. After this, a laser begins, which stimulates the penetration of acid from the gel into the deeper layers of the skin. After the procedure, the remaining gel is removed with a damp cloth. It is advisable not to use this method if there are dentures made of metal, as well as ceramic-metal crowns.
When conducting OXY-therapy, instead of a laser, skin irrigation is used with an oxygen stream leaving the apparatus under pressure. Additional rehabilitation is not required, the result is visible immediately after the procedure, over time, it becomes even more noticeable. This method also provides saturation of the skin with oxygen.
Before and after photos
Hyaluronic acid biorevitalization restores the process of self-rejuvenation and self-renewal of tissues, allows you to saturate the skin with moisture. This makes it possible to eliminate fine wrinkles, restore skin turgor, and improve complexion. All this gives the skin an attractive appearance, allowing a person to look much younger than their actual age.
