Facial injections – a modern method to make the skin beautiful and prevent signs of aging. Creams, masks and other cosmetic products is able to look after only the surface layer of the epidermis, as a barrier layer of the skin gives the components of the composition to penetrate deeper.
But the drug for injection of the person using the needle or cannula penetrates as deeply as possible, and influencing the formation of collagen and to maintain the necessary moisture level of the skin, and even the shape of the nose, chin and cheeks.
There are a large number of drugs intended for injection skin care. Their composition is combined in most cases one component called hyaluronic acid. Facial injections of this substance as safe as possible: it is produced by the human body, combining a huge number of functions, one of which is the attraction of water molecules. At a young age when the body produces acid in sufficient quantity, the skin supple and hydrated from the inside.
After thirty years of age, the amount of substances is slowed down, so it is advisable to do hyaluronic injection for the face. Sometimes the substance is used in its pure form, sometimes in the composition of the added vitamins that promote rejuvenation, regeneration, removal of pigmentation. This procedure is called biorevitalization, injections of vitamins – mesotherapy.
As a rule, to perform such cosmetic procedures have at least twice a year. Particularly relevant after the summer season, when the skin is damaged by intense ultraviolet radiation and require hydration and regeneration.
When discussing anti-aging injections for the face, in first place, I mean Botox and Dysport. These two drugs – absolute counterparts of each other, the difference is only the country of origin and price.
The main ingredient of Botox and Dysport – botulinum toxin, a substance that blocks muscle movement, providing peace of 4-10 months. The skin over the muscle without movement is smoothed.
For a long time Botox was used only in the area of forehead, nose bridge, external corners of the eyes. But the new treatments have greatly expanded the possibilities of the drug: it can be used to make the upper lip fuller, shots in the area between her nose and botulinum toxin, the neck is smooth with injections in the subcutaneous muscles of the neck, eyelids – raised due to the injections above the eyebrows.
In order to make lip more plump, her chin is larger and the cheekbones – above apply filler. They represent gels, which are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin and remain there from one year to several years, depending on the composition.
Fillers on hyaluronic acid differ from the structure for biorevitalization its density. The denser the gel is, the higher the chance to create a "sculptural effect". Fillers dense texture great for contour plastic surgery of the chin and cheeks: these gels will not melt, migrate to other tissues, longer retain the effect and evenly disappear.
Facial injections are somewhat different from the composition for lip augmentation and change their shape. As a rule, most manufacturers create a special structure to change the shape of the mouth, which, on the one hand will retain the naturalness and softness of the lips, on the other hand, will not allow the composition to migrate or to weight down the corners of the mouth.
The drug for injections face hyaluronic acid is not the only option, which can choose the patient beautician. Such compositions are preferred for those who want to experiment with looks and to see how he will be "new" plump lips or larger cheekbones. If the result is not satisfied, then it will disappear for several months without intervention, or a few hours after injection.
"Radiesse" is a popular filler based on calcium hydroxyapatite. Despite the fact that hyaluronic acid is considered the most secure due to the fact that the human immune system does not perceive its molecules as antigens, drug "Radiesse" also rarely causes rejection.
Its density makes it possible to generate more precise sculpture of a person: to simulate cheekbones, cheeks, chin and even nose. On average, its effect lasts 2-3 times longer than the effect of the preparations based on hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the price of which is usually slightly higher cost is justified due to the prolonged effect.
Lift and sculpture the face
Not to say that facial injections are strictly classified, and the modeling is performed separately from the filling of deep wrinkles. With contouring you can achieve a significant lifting of the skin. Beauticians have long used the method of destruction nasolabial folds by means of filler in the cheeks, due to which the skin stretches and smoothes the wrinkle.
Earlier, when the filler was found directly under the wrinkle, often had the effect of "heavy", tired faces. In addition, the drug over time, migrated under the influence of gravity, creating a "stretching down the cheeks", if you have entered in large numbers and did not have time to decay completely before the migration.
If the filler is made of hyaluronic acid, it not only changes the shape of the face but makes the skin more hydrated due to the effect of attracting water molecules. When the skin hydrated so deep where no one can penetrate through the barrier layer no moisturizer, the face looks younger and fresh.
Methods of administration of drugs
There are three main ways in which make beauty injections. Chief among these is the introduction of the drug through the needle. It allows you to distribute the drug locally in the area in which you want information. Moreover, most of the drugs released by manufacturers is already complete with a special needle.
Less facial injections are performed using the cannula. It looks similar to an Igloo, but has a sharp tip with a hole and rounded, and a hole through which the drug enters, is located at the side of the fixture. Due to the blunt end, the procedure does not create injury, and then rehabilitation after a visit to the beautician is reduced by several times.
And finally, biorevitalization and mesotherapy can be performed using the apparatus a roller with needles of various lengths and thicknesses, which "drives" in the skin inflicted drug - Mesoroller. The advantage is that it can be used at home, although professional device with which to perform treatments in the salon or clinic much more efficient.
Indications for the procedure
Today beauty injections have become an integral part of the effective and safe care. Modern cosmetology does not consider certain limits of age of the person, after which you can start to introduce acid, fillers and Botox. The principal is a direct indication for the procedure – wrinkles, dry skin, and so on.
Biorevitalization can be performed at any age, but usually injections are 18-20 years old are required. But if the skin is sun-scorch, the consequences of improper care, harsh chemical or mechanical peels, biorevitalization or mesotherapy can be performed and the patient at the age of 18 years.
Dysport and Botox eliminate facial wrinkles, which can appear at any age. Drugs are safe, but with regular use, the body develops resistance, that is, each time the dose will have to increase as long as even the maximum dosage will cease to be effective. Usually this time period is 20-30 years, that is, she started to use Botox to smooth wrinkles in 20 years, 50 years is likely to remain completely without any tools in front of the advancing signs of decay.
In this regard, cosmetologists are advised to postpone the early use of botulinum toxin, at least up to 30-35 years. Although statistically the threshold of the beginning of the use of Dysport and Botox is growing every year.
Fillers for contour correction are performed according to indications. But, as a rule, any cosmetic facial injections are applied only after the patient is 18 years of age.
Before performing injections for facial wrinkles, you must make sure that the condition are able to withstand outside interference.
First, you need to examine the skin in the location of injections, inflammation, scratches, abrasions, acne are contraindications to the procedure. Also the doctor needs to find out the history of the patient: if he did the same procedure earlier, were there any complications or allergic reactions.
Also, there are absolute contraindications that expressly prohibit any injections for the face:
- diabetes mellitus;
- mental illness;
- pregnancy and lactation;
- autoimmune processes;
- HIV infection;
- any abnormality in the active stage.
Relative contraindication is the period of menstruation in women. It does not affect the outcome of the procedure, it may aggravate it, increasing the time of healing of the skin and increasing bleeding.
As a rule, Spa treatments don't require patients inquiries about the status of health, but it is better to visit a therapist before you decide to take advantage of the benefits of injectable cosmetic treatments, to hand over clinical and biochemical blood tests, complete urine analysis.
The main complication when undertaking any cosmetic procedure is a subjective mismatch between expectations of patient outcome. Rarely there are really obvious problems: migration of the gel, the penetration of infection along with a medication allergic reaction.
Advantage of filler and hyaluronic acid is the ability at any time to remove it from the tissues by using the enzyme. Bring Botox is impossible, but its effect is short, so very quickly the flaws of the procedure will cease to be visible, and the face will look the same as before.
Statistically complications happen in the case if you have used the defective drug or cosmetologist does not have sufficient training or the necessary education. Therefore, when choosing the doctor and clinic you need to pay attention to the competence of doctors and the quality certificates of all the drugs used, and not on low prices, promotions and discounts. The beautician who performs the injection must have a medical degree.
