Is it possible to achieve the effect of a facelift without going to a plastic surgeon? Modern hardware cosmetology affirmatively answers a similar question and recommends paying attention to a safe, painless, but effective procedure called biomechanical stimulation. During its implementation, the effect is carried out directly on the muscles of the problem area, their tone increases, therefore, the elasticity of the skin.
What is biomechanical stimulation?
So, the procedure is really one of the varieties of hardware skin tightening. In fact, it is a passive training or massage of muscles located in problem areas of the face or body due to vibration. During exposure, the treated areas are not injured, the integrity of the skin is not violated. The procedure is easily tolerated, has a minimum of contraindications and does not provoke any complications after the procedure.
Indications and Expected Results
Biomechanical stimulation is indicated for prophylactic and therapeutic purposes with existing skin defects. Using a course of procedures, you can really fix such problems:
- uneven skin texture;
- a network of fine expression wrinkles;
- earthy skin color;
- dark spots;
- enlarged pores.
The impact is an excellent prevention of ptosis. It activates cellular metabolism, enhances blood flow and local metabolic processes. Thanks to stimulation, collagen fibers begin to be produced faster, muscles are tightened, and the skin becomes more elastic. In addition, during the procedure, protection against free radicals is developed, the existing stress is removed.
Processing even delicate areas of the skin around the eyes, and, if necessary, the neckline, are allowed.
The relevance of biomechanical stimulation is especially high when working with facial wrinkles. They are formed due to the constant movement of the muscles of the face and at first seem to be small folds. With age, this contrast becomes more significant, but it is ineffective to deal with it only with creams and lotions.
During the procedure, the muscles regain their function, due to which the folds on the skin are straightened, and it is tightened. In addition, the effect provokes increased blood circulation and local metabolic processes, which favorably affects the state of the cells and their regeneration. Collagen is produced more actively, the skin is rejuvenated.
Beauticians assure that the course of procedures is able to reduce the patient’s real age by 5-6 years, and the effect obtained lasts long enough provided that the procedure is regularly followed in the future.
The average duration of biomechanical stimulation is 30-50 minutes, while the treatment of one problem area (muscle) does not exceed 1 minutes. Procedures are carried out according to the following algorithm:
- Preparation. It involves the removal of cosmetics, surface contaminants. It is carried out with the help of gels or lotions for washing, peeling formulations, steaming the skin is not required.
- Skin application of natural oils (for example, grape seed or wheat germ, they enhance the positive effect of processing).
- Treatment. Exposure to one section for 10-60 seconds, transition to the next.
- Completion. It consists in removing the residual oil used, applying tonic and nourishing agents to the skin, leading to increased changes.
The procedure is carried out by a course of 12-15 sessions, which are held every 7-10 days. Repeated therapy is permissible no earlier than 3 months after the completion of the first course.
Before biomechanical stimulation, it is necessary to make sure that there are no contraindications to the procedure for health reasons. Exposure of this kind is not recommended for patients in the following cases:
- Angina pectoris, hypertension.
- Individual intolerance to vibrational vibrations.
- The presence of benign tumors.
- Pathologies of the nervous system.
- Predisposition to bleeding.
- Inflammation in the lymph nodes, viral and colds, fever.
- Pustular and skin diseases on the face.
- The presence of metal implants.
Relative contraindications to biomechanical stimulation of the face is pregnancy and the period of menstruation. It should be noted that when processing the body, these two points are included in the list of mandatory restrictions.
Advantages and disadvantages
Positive feedback on the technique is primarily associated with its safety and delicacy. During the procedure, there is no discomfort, and side effects after its completion are completely absent, as well as the need for rehabilitation and compliance with any restrictions. Reasonable cost allows any patient to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure.
As a preventive measure and a way to eliminate the first age-related changes, biomechanical stimulation is very effective, but it is not suitable for solving pronounced problems in patients aged 45-50 years. For this category of persons there can be two solutions – contour plastic surgery or plastic surgery.
Biomechanical stimulation of the skin of the face is a type of hardware massage aimed at stimulating muscles. It is carried out with the aim of eliminating shallow facial wrinkles, preventing ptosis, and eliminating small skin defects. The procedure is safe and does not violate the integrity of the skin, activates internal processes, including metabolic and blood flow, strengthens muscles, stimulates collagen production. It is considered an alternative to surgical facelift.
