In the life of every woman there comes a period when beauty gradually begins to fade, the skin becomes not so elastic, the skin color fades, the first wrinkles appear. Then the question arises: how to prolong your youth and beauty as long as possible! Various cosmetic procedures come to the rescue. But in this case, it is absolutely impossible to do just by ingesting various drugs and applying creams to the skin. In order to achieve the best result, you should pay attention to such methods of restoring youth to the skin as mesotherapy and biorevitalization. There is an opinion that they are one and the same. But this is a huge misconception, therefore, before making a choice, it is worthwhile to thoroughly study both, the principles of conduct, indications, possible results and consequences.
Mesotherapy, indications for carrying out, contraindications.
Consider the procedure of mesotherapy. It is worth noting that the history of its origin goes back to the 18th century. It comes from the Greek words “meso” – medium and “therapy” – treatment. Literally, it can be translated as “rarely and a little, but in the right place.” This means the introduction of drugs in minimal quantities in places where the skin has lost its attractiveness and elasticity. It can be muscles, adipose tissue, dermis. In modern medicine, mesotherapy is used as an additional method of treatment. Abroad, it is also used in the treatment of many diseases: gynecological, dermatological, neurological and others. Mesotherapy is widely used in more than 40 countries around the world. In our country, it has found wide application in aesthetic medicine, in cosmetology.
It is foolish to think that mesotherapy has a narrow focus and is only a cosmetic procedure for injecting under the dermis. On the contrary, it has many types. This includes the treatment of local subcutaneous fat deposits, cellulite, the treatment of various myositis, myalgia, cosmetic and therapeutic therapy with botulinum toxins, and the solution of some joint problems.
When it comes to the need to correct the skin condition, mesotherapy is considered as the introduction of various biologically active compounds into the target tissue area – the drug is injected into the skin to a depth of 0.3 – 5 mm, and enters the so-called layer – reservoir. This is such an intercellular space, from where the drug is transported to the target organs not only through the vessels and capillaries, but also through the intercellular fluid, which provides a faster result than from the introduction of drugs intravenously or intramuscularly. The effect is achieved as a result of exposure to drugs, as well as from mechanical damage to the tissue with a needle.
Among the pharmacological preparations that are used for injections, the classic options are ribomunil, hofitol, trental, dicynone and others.
Mesotherapy has a wide range of effects:
- pharmacological influence – the effect of a specifically administered drug for local or systemic treatment;
- vasodilating effect – stimulation of receptors due to the maintenance and damage to the integrity of the skin with a needle even without the presence of the drug;
- irritating effect – regular stimulation of receptors, which activates the nervous system and the entry of endogenous opiates into the blood, which have an analgesic effect;
- reflexogenic effect – when the needle enters a specific area of the skin, the risk of thrombus formation decreases in this place, swelling decreases, and stimulates microcirculation;
- reparative effect – when the skin is damaged, new collagen and elastin fibers are formed.
As mentioned above, there is such a type of mesotherapy as dry: the syringe is inserted under the skin to a depth of 0.2 to 0.5 mm, but without the introduction of the drug.
It is worth remembering that there is such a marketing ploy – needle-free mesotherapy. It cannot have anything to do with the procedure of real mesotherapy, the main target procedure of which is mechanical piercing of the skin.
There are specific contraindications for this procedure: various skin diseases, cancer, AIDS, pregnancy, lactation, sepsis, vascular pathology and kidney failure. Therefore, you should definitely consult with your doctor. It should be remembered that the procedure itself is aimed at nourishing the cells with vitamins and microelements. Therefore, the effect will be visible after 5-10 procedures. To maintain the result, one procedure per year is enough. The mesotherapy method is more suitable for young girls from 20 years old, depending on the condition of the skin.
Biorevitalization – as a kind of mesotherapy
One of the varieties of mesotherapy is biorevitalization – this is an injection under the skin. In this case, no active substances are used. The main component of the preparations in this case is hyaluronic acid, which has regenerative abilities: injured skin areas heal faster, cells are restored. If a preparation with hyaluronic acid is introduced into healthy skin, then its action will be aimed at restoring cells that have been naturally damaged, that is, during the aging process, the level of moisture in the skin rises, it becomes more elastic, fresher, fine wrinkles are smoothed out.
The biorevitalization procedure is quite painful, so it should be done only with the use of anesthesia, but not in the form of injections, but in the form of special creams that are applied to the skin an hour and a half before the procedure. In order to achieve the desired result, it is worth choosing the right drug and its concentration correctly. In order to activate the process of fibroblast division, distribution and excretion of the drug from the body, certain requirements must be observed.
- The consistency of the drug should be elastic, viscous, like a gel.
- The amount of hyaluronic acid should be strictly 15 mg per 1 ml.
- Hyaluronic acid should not be of chemical origin.
The result of the procedure depends on the strict observance of the rules. For example, if the injected drug is too liquid, then it will dissolve too quickly and be excreted from the body in 1 day, without achieving any result. If, on the contrary, it is too thick, it will make it difficult to insert it under the skin.
The biorevitalization procedure has the same contraindications as mesotherapy. But, unlike mesotherapy, it is aimed at restoring damaged cells. For best results, it is worth doing 5 to 10 treatments. In some cases, the result is noticeable and …
