Aesthetic cosmetology is the field of cosmetology that deals with the elimination of signs of aging without surgical intervention.
Cosmetic procedures include a whole set of techniques: hardware technology, injection technique, thread removal, rejuvenation at the expense of the body's own resources (plasma therapy, cell rejuvenation), body contouring methods. And every year the choice of procedures becomes more and more.
In the early 19th century, several innovative doctors tried to correct appearance defects, such as premature wilting of the skin, insufficient volume of the lips and cheeks, with the help of "beauty injections". For this, the patient's own fat is used. However, it quickly disappeared.
In the 90s of the last century, a new favorite appeared - preparations based on hyaluronic acid. The name of this substance was given back in 1934 by scientists K. Meyer and J. Palmer.
Today, hyaluronic therapy is one of the most popular and sought-after cosmetic procedures. It is based on the subcutaneous injection of synthetic hyaluronic acid into the face and other parts of the body, which incomparably moisturizes the skin. This acid is best perceived by the body, without causing rejection and allergic reactions.
In general, all injection techniques are based on the introduction of micro-dose of individual drugs (or their cocktails) into the surface layer of the skin to a depth of 1. 5 to 6 mm. For injection, a short and thin needle with a syringe or a special device - a mesoscooter is used. In addition to hyaluronic acid, vitamins and amino acids, botulinum toxin and enzymes are used medicinally.
With the help of preparations based on hyaluronic acid, such a popular procedure as lip augmentation is carried out.
In addition to moisturizing the skin, there are also those that fill in deep wrinkles. Then a special preparation is injected under the skin - a filler, which is based on a solid substance that dissolves over time. For example calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a major part of one of the leading drugs.
Calcium hydroxyapatite begins the formation of its own connective tissue - starting the process of forming new collagen fibers. The latter takes on the function of natural fillers and supporting frames. In other words, thanks to fillers, it is possible not only to fill in folds and wrinkles, but also to tighten the oval of the face, and give the skin an incomparable velvety and smoothness.
Fillers based on calcium hydroxyapatite are also suitable for non-surgical correction of the shape of the nose (smoothing the hump, modeling the tip). Used to align the chin, rejuvenate the earlobe. Effective for major rejuvenation of the back surface of the hand.
Modern hyaluronic preparations solve several problems at once: moisturize, remove wrinkles, improve appearance. For example, one dermal filler consists of linked molecules of hyaluronic acid, which increase its ability to retain more moisture and start the skin renewal process many times faster. The unique feature of these fillers is that, due to their dense structure, they can model the contours of the face (cheeks, chin, the area around the eyes or forehead), neck, eliminate gravitational ptosis, that is, remove facial tissue, and smooth neck wrinkles. .
The introduction of a complex of active substances under the skin - effectively fights hair loss, dryness and dehydration of the skin, swelling, cellulite, pigmentation. This technique has no age and season restrictions, discomfort is minimized, the effect lasts a long time.
The active substance, getting to the problem area, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, normalizes a sluggish metabolism, improves blood circulation. The choice of drug is carried out for each patient individually, taking into account the general condition of the skin.
The procedure is similar, but based on the introduction of one drug into the dermis - hyaluronic acid. Recommended for use on any part of the body. Positive results are seen after the first visit to the beautician, but after the procedure, the skin becomes firmer, acquires a healthy look and natural glow.
Popular botulinum toxin therapy is carried out with drugs based on class A botulinum toxin. This low-potency toxin blocks neuromuscular impulses, preventing the muscles in the upper part of the face from moving. Professional wrinkle correction with botulinum toxin allows you to smooth the skin, while maintaining a natural facial expression. The dose is selected individually, taking into account the initial data of the patient. The agent is injected with a thin needle into places with moving wrinkles - forehead, brow bone. The duration of the effect obtained can be up to one year, then the correction is repeated.
The injection technique is effective for rejuvenating every part of the body - face, décolleté and neck, arms, hips, body contouring in general. The result is visible after the first 1-2 procedures. The standard course is 8-10 sessions.
The injection technique makes it possible to improve the shape of the cheekbones, cheeks, chin, eliminate nasolabial folds, smooth skin relief, and remove wrinkles around the eyes.
The return of youth at the expense of the body's own resources
A procedure based on the introduction of a person's own plasma under the skin. Plasma is the liquid part of the blood that plays a role in the process of tissue regeneration (repair). The procedure takes place in 2 stages. In the first stage, blood is drawn and purified in a special centrifugal separator. The device separates blood into plasma and erythrocyte mass. Platelets are concentrated in plasma during repeated purification. In the second stage, the patient is injected with pure plasma into the problem area to stimulate regenerative function.
Thanks to the injection of platelet-rich plasma, the body receives a strong stimulus to launch its natural rejuvenation process. The patient's metabolic processes are normalized, blood circulation improves. In the dermis, new molecules of hyaluronic acid begin to form, and a powerful process for producing youthful collagen and elastin is also launched. It helps smooth and reduce wrinkles. In addition, new collagen makes the face look radiant and healthy.
Swiss plasma lift
More advanced plasma lifting technology. The name speaks of the principle of operation of this technique. Regen stands for Regeneration and ACR stands for Autologous Cellular Rejuvenation (ACR).
Two active substances were obtained from the patient's blood. Autogel fills in wrinkles and begins to regenerate tissue from within. At the same time, the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid is activated, and a firming skin skeleton is formed. Autoplasma removes all traces of fatigue, saturates with oxygen, perfectly moisturizes the skin, giving it a healthy pink tint.
As a result, the skin becomes elastic, dense, firm, radiant like in its youth. Wrinkles, creases, acne scars, age spots and other aesthetic defects are gone.
It is a method of rejuvenation with its own fibroblasts - the main skin cells responsible for the production of youthful collagen and elastin.
Currently, the number of medical institutions working with cells is rather limited. Since this is a very delicate and delicate technique that does not forgive mistakes, it requires the training of the highest level of physicians. Interest in this therapy in the world is increasing from year to year.
Self-healing techniques. It is especially effective for patients with obvious signs of age and other structural changes in the skin.
It is important to note that cell therapy has nothing to do with stem cell treatment, the consequences of which are still poorly understood by science. This procedure consists of several steps:
- SPRS-skin diagnosis and manufacture of "Patient skin passport";
- SPRS-program for the correction of changes and prevention of skin aging;
- make SPRS preparations - products containing the patient's own fibroblasts;
- conduct a course of therapy;
- storage of skin fibroblasts in a cryobank.
In the preliminary stage, the skin is examined at the microtexture level using modern laboratory methods. The readiness of fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin was assessed. Based on the results of the diagnosis, the patient receives a "Skin Passport", in which all individual characteristics are entered, as well as detailed information about the rejuvenation program.
Millions of young fibroblasts grow in the laboratory from microscopic areas of the patient's skin, which are then injected into the skin.
The effect of cell therapy is immediately visible! In patients aged 45-50 years, at least 10-15 years "go"!
A very important feature of cell therapy is that the drug obtained once will function torejuvenation for life!Parts of the growing fibroblasts are placed in a cryobank, where they can be stored in liquid nitrogen for an indefinite period. Cells stored in this way are used for the production of cell preparations throughout the patient's life.
The main task of strengthening the threads (3D mesothreads) is the internal rejuvenation of the skin structure. The reinforcing thread is small and delicate, made of medical suture material PDO (polydioxanone) which is biocompatible with the human body. Polydioxanone causes fibroblasts to switch from a passive to an active state and synthesize type 1 collagen (we produce similar collagen at ages 15-16). With a certain method of attaching mesothreads, polydioxanone improves blood microcirculation, which provides a lipolytic effect, that is, removes excess fluid from the body. This, in turn, leads to a decrease in the volume of tissues, smoothes the skin, eliminates the effect of "orange peel" (cellulite). Therefore, apart from a facelift, 3D mesothreads can be used in any area that requires fast and safe tightening. This may be abdominal skin, sagging after pregnancy or a strict diet, décolleté, thighs, buttocks, inner surface of the shoulders or thighs.
Lifting threads are used for non-surgical facelifts. They used to be made of gold, but the metal is insoluble in tissues, and the constant presence of foreign bodies under the skin is dangerous to health. Modern threads are made of self-absorbable materials, which are safe and provide a long-lasting tightening effect. So, Italian sutures are made of the surgical ingredient caprolactone, which is completely absorbed in the body and excreted naturally. During production, the double transverse polymerization of caprolactone is carried out using a special technology. Thanks to it, the skin is completely renewed due to the formation of new collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid.
The non-surgical plastic effect is achieved due to the special design. Designed in the form of a herringbone with very small and almost invisible notches ("teeth"), these threads, when inserted under the skin, are attached with the help of "teeth" to soft tissues. Thus, they form a supporting frame that tightens the contours of the face. Notches prevent transfer of fabric and yarn to other areas. The special structure allows you to get an instant lifting effect and keep it for a long time - from 3 to 5 years.
Maintain tone and increase active life duration
This highly pure and unique placenta preparation from Japan treats more than 150 ailments, including lowering blood pressure, preventing the development of diabetes, hypertension, stomach ulcers, migraines, and arthritis.
The active substances of the placenta stimulate stagnant and sluggish vital processes. An outstanding feature of this drug is a drug with a directed action and high precision. Unlike many chemical medicinal compounds, placental medicine, while healing, does not cause side harm to the body. Such preparations are called intelligent or "smart", because they themselves detect points of imbalance in the body, functional disorders and have a targeted therapeutic effect.
In Japan, where nearly all of the population uses placental medications, the median life expectancy is 87 years, and menopause in Japanese women occurs at 65 years. Men, with regular use of the drug, feel a constant surge of sexual energy, their mental efficiency and concentration increase. With regular intake of placenta, one looks and feels 10 years younger.
Today in the world there are already hundreds of hardware techniques and their varieties which are used to correct age related changes. They are no worse than a surgeon's scalpel, they remove wrinkles and tighten tissues that have been sagging for years.
Some of the most effective are laser and ultrasonic. Fractional photothermolysis was performed with a Fraxel laser device. This unique technology appeared in 2004. It was developed and patented by an American company. Fraxel lasers, despite many competitors, are still the best and safest.
The fractional principle consists in the following: a thin laser beam acts not on a large area, but on micro parts of the skin, the diameter of which is proportional to the diameter of a human hair. During exposure, old and damaged collagen and elastin are destroyed at microsection. In response, the body begins to restore damaged areas - new skin appears, free from blemishes. Because the diameter of the micro-damage is very small, and there are many healthy cells around, the recovery is very fast, and the procedure is safe.
The top layer of skin - the epidermis - is not injured, therefore, after the procedure, there is no need for clinical or home rehabilitation processes. Using the Fraxel laser, you can remove wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, acne scars, pigmentation.
Since Fraxel is a procedure that stimulates the formation of new, blemish-free skin, the rejuvenating results will last for years. And scars and stretch marks will be gone forever.
The best ultrasound procedure to date is the Altera therapy, which is performed on American devices. It is the only skin tightening treatment with micro-focused ultrasound in the world that works at the SMAS (musculo-aponeurotic system) level without damaging the skin's surface. It is at the SMAS level that plastic surgeons work when they perform skin tightening surgeries.
Ultrasonic deep SMAS removal includes skin tightening, subcutaneous fat, artificial muscle, collagen and elastin fibers. Such tightening provides a pronounced and long-lasting rejuvenating effect.
With the help of Altera therapy, it is possible to achieve lifting and tightening of the skin of the face, neck and décolleté, as well as to correct wrinkles. The effectiveness and high level of safety of Altera therapy have been scientifically proven. More than 1, 000, 000 procedures have been performed worldwide.
Age for aesthetics is not a barrier. It's never too late to start the process. But everything is very individual.
Many techniques have also been developed for body alignment: from traditional massages and body wraps to hardware techniques.
The unique Israeli hardware system makes it possible to remove deep fat deposits, which are covered with a dense layer of internal organs - liver, heart, stomach, kidneys, creating a significant burden on these organs and causing disease.
High frequency ultrasonic waves freely penetrate to a depth of 8-9 cm and dissolve belly fat. After that, it is excreted from the body through the lymphatic system. This process is called visceral lipolysis. At the same time, low-frequency ultrasonic waves are used in the system. They penetrate the surface layer to a depth of 3 cm and dissolve subcutaneous fat deposits. In this case, the hardware system works like classic ultrasonic liposuction.
No other system can cope with the difficult task of removing internal fat deposits. Diet, fitness or other exercises and exercises, even the most intense ones, cannot do this. Meanwhile, losing belly fat isn't just about losing weight. The improvement and enhancement of the work of these internal organs is the key to the health and youth of the whole organism!
Body shaping is so effective that in just 3-4 sessions you can reduce your waist by 4-8 cm, and weight up to 5-7 kilograms!
And once and for all, the elite Italian device will help get rid of cellulite.
This device works on the principle of deep vibration and compression. It "squeezes" excess fluid from the tissues, activates blood circulation, lymph flow, accelerates metabolic processes and removes congestion. The device adapts to the patient's body, is safe and the impact does not leave a mark. It gives excellent results by working on fat deposits on the back, hips, buttocks, inner surface of the arms and legs. It is in these places that the "orange peel" is most often formed.
Skin becomes smoother, firmer even after one procedure. And after the course of exposure, the cellulite will disappear, and the body volume will immediately decrease by 2 sizes.
Well-groomed hair is the key to success. However, unfortunately, for some people it is naturally not too thick, while for others it begins to fade and fall off in the process of life. After all, our hair is under constant stress - be it winter or summer heat, absorbing toxic emissions. The clinic performs complex photo and video computer diagnostics using cameras and software packages. This is necessary to assess the condition of the hair and scalp, the level of activity of the sebaceous glands, genetic predisposition to alopecia (baldness).
In addition, microelement analysis, mycological and bacteriological studies of the scalp are used in the clinic. Before prescribing treatment, the doctor studies in detail how the body is saturated with iron, how is the state of the thyroid gland and the level of sex hormones in the patient. In certain cases, spectral analysis is performed. It shows which components in the hair are in excess, and which are clearly not enough. Based on the diagnosis, therapy is prescribed - from injections to lasers. Modern technology activates the body's hidden resources, awakens dormant hair follicles and stimulates new hair growth without surgical transplantation.
At what age should aesthetic procedures be performed?
If we talk about teenage acne and its consequences, then the procedure can already be carried out at the age of 15-16.
But on average, prevention should be done after 25 years. After 30 years, you will need a filler that corrects wrinkles. After 40 years - lifting of threads and hardware. But best of all, your beautician knows how to stay young and beautiful. Therefore, the first thing to do is findyour cosmetologist and clinic!
