What is hardware cosmetology for facial rejuvenation
Hardware cosmetology combines rejuvenating and revitalizing manipulations, which are carried out using special equipment. The advantages of this technique include:
- high efficiency;
- impact not only on the surface layers of the skin, but also on the deep structures, subcutaneous tissue;
- complete absence or low degree of pain during the session;
- almost instantaneous manifestation of positive changes;
- versatility - hardware cosmetology can solve many problems with the skin of the face or body;
- no need for long-term recovery (as after surgery).
The main disadvantages are side effects (most often minor - peeling, swelling, redness), as well as the need for a short rehabilitation period or compliance with certain rules. In addition, there is a high risk of contacting not a professional doctor, but with an amateur, whose manipulations can lead to complications.
Principle of operation, result
Hardware cosmetology is based on the ability to penetrate microcurrents, laser beams, light, ultrasonic or radio waves deep into the skin, followed by the stimulation of hidden reserves and activation of regenerative properties. The result of such an effect is the lifting of the contours of the face, smoothing of its relief, leveling of tone, elimination of expression or age wrinkles, folds, bags under the eyes.The action of the devices is also aimed at capillary walls and improving microcirculatory processes, which allows you to remove dark circles under the eyes, eliminate signs of hyperpigmentation.
To enhance the effect, prolong its durability, it is recommended to combine the techniques of traditional cosmetology with hardware methods.
Hardware lifting techniques can be recommended by a cosmetologist when:
- decreased tone, dullness, skin fading;
- the appearance of fine wrinkles;
- uneven skin relief;
- aggravation of the severity of existing wrinkles or mimic folds, vertical furrows;
- bruising or bags under the eyes;
- second chin;
- enlarged pores, acne, post-acne;
- freckles or age-related hyperpigmentation;
- presence of scars, scars, stretch marks.
The main purpose of hardware lifting is to regenerate the skin, giving it freshness and elasticity. Therefore, after 25 years, you can carry out preventive procedures that will maintain the normal condition of the skin.
For all its effectiveness, the active influence of hardware devices has a number of contraindications, which include pregnancy with lactation, serious neurological or mental disorders, the presence of chronic pathologies, autoimmune diseases, blood diseases, infectious or oncological processes, the presence of foreign bodies in the body.
The most effective hardware procedures for facial rejuvenation
Today there are many types of hardware cosmetic procedures and their variations. Below is a list of the most effective and safest, according to experts.
The most popular procedure in which the skin structures are exposed to powerful pulses of radio waves emitted by a special device.As a result, the process of activation of metabolism starts, fat cells are destroyed, fibroblasts are stimulated - "cells of youth", which are responsible for the production of collagen.
Due to the fact that the design of the device allows you to adjust the intensity of radio emission, the technique can be applied to different areas of the face, as well as the décolleté, neck and chest areas. In most cases, to achieve the desired appearance, patients need from 5 to 8 sessions, the frequency of which is set individually.
The main advantage of fractional RF-lifting is the complete absence of a rehabilitation period, minor side effects in the form of dry skin. The main disadvantage is a mild effect after 45 years. Although, if you combine this technique with biorevitalization, then conducting radio wave sessions is justified even at 60.
Microcurrent hardware facelift
During the rejuvenation session, the device acts on problem areas with weak pulses of low-frequency current. This stimulates the natural potential of old or weakened cells of the superficial and deep layers, activates their regeneration, simultaneously influencing the vessels of the face and muscle structures. The duration of the procedure is 20-30 minutes, during which the beautician smoothly moves a special applicator along the massage lines, in the direction from the center of the face to its periphery. At the same time, patients do not experience much discomfort, except perhaps a slight tingling sensation in especially sensitive areas.
The most positive feature of microcurrent lifting is instant facelift. But this does not mean that one procedure is enough for rejuvenation - the effect after the first sessions lasts only a couple of days.A long-term result can be provided only by a physiotherapy course consisting of 7-10 procedures.
A method of rejuvenation through exposure to low temperatures on the skin surface. In this case, a natural reaction of the skin arises, which consists in a sharp narrowing and subsequent expansion of blood vessels, as a result of which blood circulation, oxygen supply, and metabolic processes increase.
Cold treatment has been practiced since ancient times - Galen and Hippocrates recommended taking ice baths to cure many diseases.
With the help of cryotherapy, you can not only improve skin tone and elasticity, eliminate wrinkles on the face, neck or décolleté, but also get rid of defects such as:
- excessive oily skin;
- acne, post-acne;
- age spots;
In most beauty salons, the procedure is performed using a cryo spray that cools the skin down to -180 ° C. However, the use of cryo electrophoresis - the subcutaneous injection of frozen preparations under the influence of a pulsating current - is considered more modern and effective. For a full effect, it will take from 9 to 12 sessions.In addition to the typical contraindications for hardware cosmetology, cryolifting should not be done for patients with hypersensitivity to cold.
Hardware technique of soft action, does not lead to trauma and the appearance of traces of any interference. The procedure consists in treating problem areas with a special applicator that emits powerful light flashes. Penetrating deep enough (up to 3 cm), they promote gentle heating of deep structures and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers. After a course of photolifting, you can see the following positive changes:
- face tone alignment;
- narrowing of pores;
- contour tightening;
- elimination or reduction of the depth of wrinkles, folds;
- reduction of manifestations of rosacea.
The disadvantages of the technique include the lack of an instant result - the first manifestations of the effect are noted only after 1. 5 months, low efficiency after 55 years, a fairly high price, and seasonality (it is undesirable to carry out light exposure in the summer).
A technique based on simultaneous action on deep and surface layers. The high temperature laser beam corrects surface defects and, penetrating deeply, stimulates internal self-healing, the synthesis of useful components, which leads to natural renewal and rejuvenation of the skin surface. Despite its low invasiveness, the procedure is considered difficult and is carried out in a stationary environment, and also requires a short rehabilitation period.
An effective method to combat the first signs of aging, superficial wrinkles. The success of LPG massage lies in the simultaneous operation of special rollers and vacuum, which allows it to act on the subcutaneous fat, stimulate collagen production. Also, the procedure is good because it does not require rehabilitation and is almost never accompanied by side effects.Moreover, such a massage is expensive, and the full course consists of 10-15 procedures.
Technology, during the implementation of which a complex of optical and laser energies is used. During the Elos rejuvenation session, the subcutaneous layers are heated to a high temperature, which stimulates the synthesis of fibers responsible for the health and youthfulness of the skin. This allows you to solve the problem of pigmentation, rosacea, align the skin relief, correct wrinkles of varying severity.
A technique that implies the effect of a wave-like acoustic pulse on superficial and deep subcutaneous structures under constant ultrasound control on a monitor. At the same time, the integrity of the skin is not damaged, subsequent rehabilitation or special treatment of the face is not required. The method is widely used for sagging, drooping eyelids, double chin, flaps, deep wrinkles or furrows. The disadvantage is the need for pain relief before the session.
What devices are used - a list of the best
In order for the lifting to be as effective as possible, before carrying it out, you should ask a specialist on which apparatus the procedure will be carried out. To date, recognized as the best:
First device to receive US FDA lifting certification. Before the advent of this apparatus, such a deep intervention could only be carried out surgically, since the action of the apparatus is directed not at the skin itself, but at the muscular-aponeurotic layer.In this case, constant visualization and monitoring of the condition of the subcutaneous structures is carried out.
Device for highly efficient focused ultrasound with a high degree of control through deep scanning of dermal structures. Allows you to solve the problem pointwise, without affecting the zones without problems. Rejuvenation requires only one session, after which the effect grows for 2-3 months, and lasts up to 1. 5 years.
Portable lifting devices are quite expensive, but at the same time they allow you to take care of your skin without visiting a salon. Unfortunately, such devices are not able to correct serious defects due to their low power, which is provided for the safety of consumers. For preventive and general health purposes, it is best to use time-tested models.
