One of the most exciting non-surgical developments for skin revitalization is available right here at Philosophy of Beauty in Vaughan, On. Biorevitalization offers a miracle solution for many of your facial aging concerns and is available in one, powerful new treatment.
Bio revitalization is a process which triggers the skin’s own, natural collagen production and cell rejuvenation through the injection of hyaluronic acid serums. Hyaluronic acid, (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar in the body which is found in the skin, joints, cartilage and other areas, providing natural lubrication. This substance is hydrophilic- drawing many times its weight in water. As we age, we have less naturally produced HA in our tissues and skin dehydration becomes a telltale sign of aging. The hydrating power of hyaluronic acid in the Biorevitalization treatment feeds the skin’s cells at a deep level and results in supple, younger-looking skin with reduced wrinkles and improved elasticity. Due to the fact that one molecule of hyaluronic can hold up to 500 water molecules, it is extremely effective in maintaining moisture in the skin – a powerful weapon against the signs of aging.
This absorbable gel is a popular, natural dermal filler which is most often used to add volume to facial features. Clinical use has demonstrated that the filling effect of HA lasts longer than the biological availability of the product. Possible explanations may include the stimulation of collagen creation by crosslinked HA filler, and up-regulation of elastin which helps keep skin supple. The process of Bio revitalization was created to take advantage of this phenomenon and deliver results to the skin itself. It is injected through multiple, shallow locations just under the skin to stimulate fibroblasts and healthy cell metabolism.
Micro doses of HA are injected superficially- just under the skin’s surface- with a very fine needle in areas such as crows’s feet, cheeks, forehead, laugh lines, neck and the backs of hands. Prior to the treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and numbed with a local anaesthetic cream if necessary. One of the best things about Biorevitalization is that because injections are very shallow and contain only small amounts of product, discomfort is minimal and there is no downtime or after care required.
- Improved skin tone and elasticity
- A “lifted” effect
- Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved circulation and colour in the skin
- Quick results – improvements are often noticed after the first session
- An increase in the natural production of HA in the skin
- Increase in skin resistance to the effects of free radicals and in skin regeneration capacity
- A minimally invasive procedure with no downtime required
Biorevitalization and Mesotherapy are both effective, non- surgical methods of skin rejuvenation. Although both involve the injection of HA into the skin, Biorevitalization places cross-linked HA, superficially under the skin to stimulate skin rejuvenation. Mesotherapy uses a synthesized cocktail mixture which includes non-crosslinked HA, vitamins, peptides or medications, to deliver nutrients below the skin and to the subcutaneous tissues, targeting specific problems. Cross-linked hyaluronic acid is usually preferred for Bio revitalization because it is a more cohesive gel that holds in place longer and is injected superficially, just under the skin. Due to these differences, HA in the skin is preserved for a longer period of time with Biorevitalization therapy and saturates the skin with moisture.
The number of treatments required for each procedure will also differ. 3 treatment sessions are recommended with Biorevitalization, whereas Mesotherapy requires 5-10 in order to appreciate optimal results.
Although the procedure can be performed on almost any area of the skin, the most popular treatment areas are the face, neck and décolleté area and the back of the hands. Biorevitalization is suitable for even very delicate and sensitive areas of the body, such as the upper and lower eyelids. These areas of the body tend to be more susceptible to sun damage and as a result people often notice aging in these areas first.
Each Biorevitalization treatment lasts between 30-60 minutes.
If you have noticed signs of skin dehydration, sagging, fine lines or wrinkles, Biorevitalization may have a lot to offer you. Biorevitalization is not only for mature skin but it is also recommended as a form of prevention for cell senescence, and men or women of any age can benefit. Those who are pregnant, nursing, or have infectious lesions near injection sites are not good candidates for Biorevitalization. Talk with your practitioner about the use of any blood thinners, medications or supplements.
You won’t need to wait until multiple sessions have been completed to see results from your Biorevitalization treatment. After the first session, clients report a more toned, lifted appearance with plump and hydrated-looking skin. After every subsequent treatment, the skin becomes more and more resilient and elastic. Collagen production continues to improve months after treatments. Since the injected hyaluronic acid remains active in the skin for several months after its introduction, the long-lasting effects may extend 1-2 years post-treatment. Maintenance appointments will help you to keep skin looking fresh year after year.
Common after-effects from treatment are minor swelling of the skin, itching, and temporary discomfort. However, these are expected and temporary responses which usually resolve on their own within 1-2 days.
Patients can usually resume their regular activities immediately following the treatment, however, it is recommended you avoid saunas, swimming pools, and exposure to UV rays for 3 to 7 days in order to protect your skin while it heals. Biorevitalization is gaining in popularity all over the world because it is a preventative and restorative anti-aging treatment that achieves dramatic results without the use of plastic surgery.
