What is Biorevitalization, and What Effect Does It Give
Every year our skin finds it harder to retain moisture. The process of dehydration is familiar not only to owners of dry skin. Preparations with hyaluronic acid will help retain moisture, and revitalization is the fastest and most effective way to administer them. We deal with the beautician, who is shown this procedure and how to prepare for it.
What is Biorevitalization
Biorevitalization is an injection procedure to saturate the skin with hyaluronic acid. Simply put, these are small injections with preparations containing this ingredient.
Biological aging of the skin is often associated with loss of moisture. The main element that is responsible for retaining water in the skin is hyaluronic acid, which, by the way, is also found in other organs, such as bones. It attracts and binds water molecules, preventing them from evaporating. Due to this, the skin becomes moisturized, elastic, and less prone to aging.
From age 25, the processes of producing hyaluronic acid in the body slow down. Therefore, it is recommended to start nourishing the skin from the outside with it. For example, with the help of cosmetic care or nutritional supplements.
Biorevitalization is one of the most effective ways to spot-saturate the skin with hyaluronic acid. Due to its introduction directly into the middle layers of the skin, the maximum effect is achieved because neither creams nor serums can penetrate so deeply. Unlike mesotherapy, an injection technique for introducing various drugs into the skin, revitalization works only with hyaluronic acid. The main objective of the procedure is to restore skin hydration.
What is the effect of bio revitalization: what is the procedure for
Biorevitalization helps to moisturize the skin and retain moisture in it. The problems that this procedure solves are related to dehydration of the skin:
- Elimination of dry skin, peeling;
- Restoration of the skin’s structure and its turgor, that is, elasticity, by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
- Improvement of complexion;
- Smoothing the texture of the skin;
- Slight filling of fine wrinkles if the cause of their occurrence is dehydration;
- Reduction of age spots and post-acne.
Contraindications to Biorevitalization
Pay attention to the fact that the revitalization procedure is invasive and associated with introducing funds under the skin. So, even with such a harmless intervention, there may be contraindications.
You should reschedule an appointment with a beautician if you:
- Feel unwell and suspect you have SARS;
- Are in the stage of exacerbation of chronic disease;
- Pregnant or breastfeeding;
- Have a rash or skin disease on the face or the place where you plan to do revitalization.
How is the biorevitalization procedure carried out?
Do not trust this procedure with any specialist. There are two specialties in cosmetology: a cosmetologist-aesthetician who can perform non-invasive procedures (masks, massages) and a cosmetologist with a medical education. For hyaluronic injections, you need to go to the second one. Even a nurse with the right to give injections needs help to independently decide which drug to choose and where to inject it. Her task is to assist the doctor.
Before revitalization, the cosmetologist must examine the skin, check for inflammation, decide which points will be injected, and remove makeup. Since the procedure consists of many small injections, the doctor may suggest that the skin’s surface be anesthetized with a special gel.
There are many drugs for revitalization; the differences between them are in price and composition. They are always based on hyaluronic acid but in different dosages and sometimes with additional components. The correct choice of material affects both the procedure’s effectiveness and the effect’s prolongation.
How to choose a bio-revitalization drug
“The choice of a drug for any injection procedure, whether it be mesotherapy, revitalization, or any other, primarily depends on the tasks you want to solve. There are meso-cocktails for inflammation, lifting, pigmentation, and other problems.
First, when choosing a drug, it is worth starting from age because drugs for young and mature skin differ. For example, the doctor may suggest mesoxanthin for those under forty, and for those who are older, mesowarton. These are related drugs, but mesovarton is based on synthetic polypeptides, and mesoxanthin is based on a natural carotenoid. The difference between drugs is expressed in the degree of impact on the skin. Mesoxanthin is also suitable for those who want to solve the problem of pigmentation, as it contains peptides that normalize the function of melanocytes.
The same differences are in the popular drug for revitalization, Novokutan. For a young Y-Bio, for a mature one – S-Bio or a complex at once: S-Bio (deeper) plus Y-Bio (more superficial drug).
The second important factor is skin type, specific features, or aesthetic defects. Sometimes it is their elimination that should be given priority.
The doctor will definitely ask about the general condition of the body, as well as about allergic reactions and about other procedures, for example, hardware, when it comes to working with age-related changes.”
The manipulation can be carried out manually or with the help of an apparatus. Depending on the chosen method, the area of injection of the drug, and the number of injections, revitalization can take one to one and a half hours.
The procedure can cost 10 thousand rubles or more depending on the chosen drug and its quantity. Hyaluronic acid does not remain in the skin but is released over time. The effect lasts an average of three months to a year, then you need to repeat the procedure. The timing is affected by the metabolic rate and skin care after revitalization.
How often do biorevitalization
“How often you need to do revitalization is the most difficult question because there are diversity and intervals between procedures recommended by the manufacturer of each specific drug, the patient’s age, and the degree of skin dehydration matter. Therefore, the decision is made by the specialist individually. Most often, at least two or three sessions are done at intervals of two weeks to a month. You can do either a supporting procedure or a new course in six months or a year.
Skin care after biorevitalization
Separate special care for the duration of the drug is not required. Still, it is worth observing safety measures in the first days after bio revitalization. In particular, Galina Zosimova recommends:
- In the first two or three days, instead of a tonic, wipe the skin with chlorhexidine;
- Avoid dirty and dusty work, such as general cleaning;
- Do not play sports;
- From now on, you can stick to your usual skincare routine, including SPF products during the daytime.
What not to do after biorevitalization
Mesotherapy and revitalization are procedures with a relatively short recovery period but still need to be zero, so several limitations remain.
- First, the doctor will ask you not to touch your face after the procedure. This is due to the apparent reason not to bring dirt or bacteria into the injection sites.
- When washing your face in the evening, do not use ordinary tap water or usual products (especially alcohol-containing ones). It is better to wipe the face with chlorhexidine.
- On the day of the procedure, you can not use the usual decorative cosmetics; you need to apply antiseptic lotions and healing gels to your face (which ones are better to consult a doctor).
- It is not recommended to drink alcohol, as it blocks the drug’s effect and reduces the procedure’s effectiveness.
- Within a week after the procedure, it is not recommended to visit the sauna and bath for three days – to engage in active sports.
- Give up scrubs for two weeks and try not to be in the active sun.
