What is hardware cosmetology for facial rejuvenation
Hardware cosmetology combines rejuvenating and revitalizing manipulations performed using special equipment. The advantages of this technique are:
- high efficiency;
- affects not only the surface layers of the skin, but also the deep structures, the tissues under the skin;
- complete absence or low degree of pain during the session;
- is an almost immediate manifestation of positive change;
- versatility - hardware cosmetology can solve many problems with the skin of the face or body;
- does not require long-term recovery (as after surgery).
The main disadvantages are side effects (most often minor - peeling, swelling, redness) and the need for a short rehabilitation period or adherence to certain rules. In addition, there is a high risk of not contacting a professional doctor but an amateur whose manipulations can lead to complications.
Principle of operation, result
Hardware cosmetology is based on the ability of the skin to penetrate deeply into microcurrents, laser beams, light, ultrasound, or radio waves, followed by stimulation of hidden reserves and activation of regenerative properties. Such an effect results in increasing the contour of the face, smoothing its relief, equalizing the tone, eliminating facial expressions or age-related wrinkles, folds, bags under the eyes.The effect of the devices on the capillary walls and the improvement of microcirculation processes is also aimed at removing dark circles under the eyes, eliminating the signs of hyperpigmentation.
In order to increase the effect and prolong its durability, it is recommended to combine the techniques of traditional cosmetology with the hardware methods.
Beautician can recommend hardware lifting techniques when:
- decreased tone, pallor, skin fading;
- appearance of fine wrinkles;
- uneven skin relief;
- exacerbation of the severity of existing wrinkles or imitation wrinkles, vertical grooves;
- bruising or bag under the eyes;
- is second;
- enlarged pores, acne, post-acne;
- freckles or age-related hyperpigmentation;
- Presence of scars, scars, stretch marks.
The main purpose of hardware upgrades is skin regeneration, providing freshness and flexibility. Therefore, after 25 years, you can perform preventative procedures that maintain the normal condition of the skin.
With the full effectiveness of the active effect of hardware devices, there are several contraindications, which include lactation pregnancy, severe nervous or mental disorders, chronic diseases, autoimmune diseases, blood diseases, the presence of infectious or oncological processes, foreign bodies.
The Most Effective Hardware Procedures for Facial Rejuvenation
There are many different hardware cosmetic procedures today, and variations of them. Listed below are the most effective and safest experts.
The most popular method in which skin structures are exposed to strong radio wave pulses emitted by a special device.As a result, the process of metabolic activation begins, fat cells are killed, fibroblasts are stimulated - the cells of youth that are responsible for the production of collagen.
Because the design of the device allows you to adjust the intensity of the radio output, the technique can be applied to different areas of the face as well as the décolleté, neck and chest. In most cases, in order to achieve the desired appearance, patients need 5-8 sessions, the frequency of which is determined individually.
The main advantage of fractional RF lifting is the complete lack of a rehabilitation period, with minor side effects in the form of dry skin. The main disadvantage is the mild effect after 45 years. However, if this technique is combined with biorevitalization, radio wave sessions are warranted even at the age of 60.
Microcurrent hardware facelift
During the rejuvenation session, the device acts on problem areas with weak low frequency pulses. It stimulates the natural potential of the old and weakened cells of the surface and deep layers, activates their regeneration, and simultaneously affects the vessels of the face and muscle structures. The duration of the procedure is 20-30 minutes, during which the beautician moves a special applicator smoothly along the massage lines in the direction from the center of the face to the periphery. However, patients do not experience much discomfort, except perhaps mild tingling in particularly sensitive areas.
The most positive feature of microconductivity lifting is the instant face lift. But that doesn’t mean a procedure is enough for rejuvenation - the effect after the first sessions lasts only a few days.Only a 7-10 procedure physiotherapy course can produce long-term results.
A way to rejuvenate by exposure to low skin surface temperatures. In this case, a natural reaction of the skin occurs, consisting of a sharp narrowing and subsequent dilation of the blood vessels, resulting in the activation of blood circulation, oxygen supply and increased metabolic processes.
Cold treatment has been practiced since ancient times - Galen and Hippocrates suggested the use of ice baths to cure many diseases.
Cryotherapy can not only improve skin tone and elasticity, eliminate wrinkles on the face, neck or décolleté, but also get rid of blemishes such as:
- excessive oily skin;
- acne, post-acne;
- old age spots;
In most beauty salons, the procedure is performed using cryo spray, which cools the skin to -180 ° C. The use of cryoelectrophoresis is considered to be more modern and efficient due to the pulsating current of subcutaneous injection of frozen preparations. It takes 9-12 sessions to achieve full impact.In addition to the contraindications typical of hardware cosmetology, cryolift should not be performed in patients with hypersensitivity to cold.
The hardware technique of soft action does not lead to trauma and the appearance of any traces of interference. The procedure consists of treating the problem areas with a special applicator that emits strong flashes of light. By penetrating deep enough (up to 3 cm) they help to gently warm the deep structures and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers. After the photolifting course, you can see the following positive changes:
- face color adjustment;
- pore narrowing;
- draw a contour;
- eliminate or reduce the depth of wrinkles, folds;
- Reduction of manifestations of rosacea.
Disadvantages of the technique include the lack of immediate results - the first manifestations of the effect are observed only after 1. 5 months, low efficiency after 55 years, rather high price, and seasonality (it is not desirable to perform light radiation in summer).
A technique based on the simultaneous operation of deep and surface layers. The high-temperature laser beam corrects surface defects and, when penetrated deeply, stimulates internal self-healing, the synthesis of beneficial components, leading to the natural renewal and renewal of the skin surface. Despite its low invasiveness, the procedure is considered difficult and is performed in a stationary environment and also requires a short rehabilitation period.
An effective way to combat the first signs of aging, surface wrinkles. The success of LPG massage lies in the simultaneous operation of special cylinders and a vacuum that allows subcutaneous fat to function and stimulates collagen production. The procedure is also good because it does not require rehabilitation and almost never has side effects.In addition, such a massage is expensive and the total cure consists of 10-15 procedures.
A technology in which an optical and laser energy complex is used. During the Elos rejuvenation session, the subcutaneous layers are heated to a high temperature, which stimulates the synthesis of the fibers responsible for the health and youthfulness of the skin. This makes it possible to solve the problem of pigmentation, rosacea, to adjust the relief of the skin, to correct wrinkles of different severity.
A technique that involves the effect of a wave-like acoustic pulse on superficial and deep subcutaneous structures under constant ultrasonic control on a monitor. However, the integrity of the skin is not compromised, no post-rehabilitation or special facial treatment is required. The method is widely used for sagging, drooping eyelids, double chin, wings, deep wrinkles or furrows. Disadvantage is the need for pain relief before sitting.
What tools are used - a list of the best
In order to make the lift as efficient as possible, you should ask the technician on which equipment the procedure will be performed before performing it. Recognized as the best to date:
The first device to receive a U. S. FDA lift certification. Prior to the advent of the device, such a deep intervention was only possible with surgery, as the effect of the device is not on the skin itself, but on the muscle-aponeurotic layer.In this case, the status of subcutaneous structures is continuously displayed and monitored.
Device for highly efficient focused ultrasound with high degree of control, deep examination of dermal structures. It allows you to solve the problem point by point without touching the zones without any problems.
