Face injections

What are face injections? Let’s review the most popular methods in modern cosmetology.

Facial biorevitalization

Facial biorevitalization is an injection technique that involves the subcutaneous administration of hyaluronic acid-based drugs.

The main purpose: combating dryness and dehydration of the skin, restoration of hydrolipid balance, elimination of dehydration lines and fine wrinkles, protection against photoaging (negative effect of ultraviolet light on the skin).

Principle of action: hyaluronic acid attracts and keeps moisture inside the cells, helping to maintain the level of moisture of the skin and restore its protective function. Moreover, hyaluronic acid activates intracellular processes, stimulating the skin’s own collagen and elastin synthesis.

The required number of injections: cosmetologists recommend to carry out biorevitalization regularly, starting from 30-35 years (depending on the initial condition of the skin and individual features). The effect of the procedure usually lasts from 4 to 6 months, during which hyaluronic acid naturally breaks down and is excreted from the body.
