This approach will allow you to individually select a number of procedures that suit a particular patient and suit him in all parameters.
What is hardware cosmetology for face rejuvenation
Hardware cosmetology combines rejuvenating and healing manipulations, which are performed using special equipment. The advantages of this technique include:
- high efficiency;
- impact not only on the superficial layers of the skin, but also on deep structures, on the subcutaneous tissue;
- complete absence or low degree of pain during the session;
- almost instantaneous manifestation of positive changes;
- versatility: hardware cosmetology can solve many problems with the skin of the face or body;
- is not necessary for a long-term recovery (such as after surgery).
The main disadvantages are side effects (most often minor - peeling, swelling, redness), as well as the need for a short rehabilitation period or compliance with certain rules. In addition, there is a high risk of contacting not a professional doctor, but an amateur, whose manipulations can lead to complications.
Principle of operation, result
Hardware cosmetology is based on the ability to penetrate deep into the skin by microcurrents, laser rays, light, ultrasound or radio waves, followed by the stimulation of hidden reserves and the activation of regenerative properties. The result of this effect is the lifting of the facial contours, smoothing of its relief, leveling of the tone, elimination of expression or age wrinkles, folds, bags under the eyes.The action of the devices is also directed to the walls of the capillaries and to the improvement of microcirculatory processes, which allows you to remove dark circles under the eyes, eliminate signs of hyperpigmentation.
To enhance the effect, extend its shelf life, it is recommended to combine the techniques of traditional cosmetology with hardware methods.
Hardware lifting techniques may be recommended by a cosmetologist when:
- decreased skin tone, dullness, fading;
- the appearance of fine wrinkles;
- relief from uneven skin;
- aggravation of the severity of existing wrinkles or mimic folds, vertical furrows;
- bruises or bags under the eyes;
- second chin;
- enlarged pores, acne, post-acne;
- age-related freckles or hyperpigmentation;
- presence of scars, scars, stretch marks.
The main purpose of the hardware lifting is to regenerate the skin, giving it freshness and elasticity. Therefore, after 25 years, it is possible to carry out preventive procedures that will maintain the normal condition of the skin.
With all its effectiveness, the active influence of hardware devices has a number of contraindications, which include pregnancy with lactation, severe neurological or mental disorders, the presence of chronic pathologies, autoimmune diseases, blood diseases, processesinfectious or oncological, presence of foreign bodies in the body.
The most effective hardware procedures for facial rejuvenation
Today, there are many types of hardware cosmetic procedures and their variations. Below is a list of the most effective and safe, according to experts.
The most popular procedure in which skin structures are exposed to powerful pulses of radio waves emitted by a special device.As a result, the process of activating the metabolism begins, fat cells are destroyed, fibroblasts are stimulated - "cells of youth", responsible for the production of collagen.
Since the design of the device allows you to adjust the intensity of the radio emission, the technique can be applied to different areas of the face, as well as décolleté, neck and chest. In most cases, to achieve the desired appearance, patients need 5 to 8 sessions, the frequency of which is set individually.
The main advantage of fractional RF facelift is the complete absence of a rehabilitation period, minor side effects in the form of dry skin. The main drawback is a mild effect after 45 years. Although, if you combine this technique with biorevitalization, conducting radio wave sessions is justified even at the age of 60.
Microcurrent hardware facelift
During the rejuvenation session, the device acts on the problem areas with weak pulses of low frequency current. This stimulates the natural potential of old or weakened cells of the superficial and deep layers, activates their regeneration, simultaneously affecting the vessels of the face and muscle structures. The duration of the procedure is 20-30 minutes, during which the beautician gently moves a special applicator along the massage lines, in the direction from the center of the face to its periphery. At the same time, patients do not experience much discomfort, except perhaps a slight tingling sensation in particularly sensitive areas.
The most positive feature of the microcurrent lifting is the instant lifting. But this does not mean that one procedure is enough for rejuvenation - the effect after the first sessions lasts only a couple of days.Only a physiotherapy course consisting of 7-10 procedures can provide a long-term result.
A method of rejuvenation through exposure to low temperatures on the skin surface. In this case, a natural reaction of the skin occurs, which consists of a sharp narrowing and subsequent expansion of blood vessels, as a result of which blood circulation, oxygen supply and increased metabolic processes are activated.
Cold treatment has been practiced since ancient times: Galen and Hippocrates recommended taking ice baths to cure many diseases.
With the help of cryotherapy, you can not only improve skin tone and elasticity, eliminate wrinkles on the face, neck or décolleté, but also eliminate defects such as:
- excessive oily skin;
- acne, post-acne;
- age spots;
In most beauty salons, the procedure is carried out using a cryogenic spray that cools the skin down to -180 ° C. However, the use of cryelectrophoresis - subcutaneous injection of frozen preparations under the influence ofa pulsating current - is considered more modern and effective. For a full effect, it will take 9 to 12 sessions.In addition to the typical contraindications for hardware cosmetology, cryolifting should not be performed for patients with hypersensitivity to cold.
Soft action hardware technique, does not lead to trauma and the appearance of traces of any interference. The procedure consists of treating problem areas with a special applicator that emits powerful flashes of light. Penetrating deep enough (up to 3 cm), they favor the gentle warming of deep structures and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers. After a photolifting course, you can see the following positive changes:
- face tone alignment;
- narrowing of pores;
- strengthening of the contour;
- elimination or reduction of the depth of wrinkles, folds;
- reduction of the manifestations of rosacea.
The disadvantages of the technique include the lack of an immediate result: the first manifestations of the effect are noticeable only after 1, 5 months, low efficiency after 55 years, a fairly high price, as well as seasonality (it is undesirable to carry out alight exposure in summer).
A technique based on simultaneous action on deep and superficial layers. The high-temperature laser beam corrects surface defects and, penetrating deeply, stimulates internal self-healing, synthesis of useful components, which leads to the natural renewal and rejuvenation of the skin surface. Despite its low invasiveness, the procedure is considered difficult and is performed in a stationary setting and also requires a short rehabilitation period.
An effective method to combat the first signs of aging, superficial wrinkles. The success of the LPG massage lies in the simultaneous operation of special rollers and suction, which allows it to act on the subcutaneous fat, to stimulate the production of collagen. Furthermore, the procedure is good in that it does not require rehabilitation and is almost never accompanied by side effects.In addition, such a massage is expensive, and the full course consists of 10-15 procedures.
Technology, during the implementation of which a complex of optical and laser energies 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 youth of the skin. This allows to solve the problem of pigmentation, rosacea, align the skin relief, correct wrinkles of varying severity.
Technique that involves the action of an undulatory acoustic impulse on superficial and deep subcutaneous structures under constant ultrasound control on a monitor. At the same time, the integrity of the skin is not damaged, subsequent rehabilitation or special treatment of the face is not required. The method is widely used for laxity, drooping eyelids, double chins, flaps, deep wrinkles or furrows. The downside is the need to relieve pain before the session.
Which devices are used: a list of the best

First device to receive US FDA lifting certification. Before the advent of this apparatus, such a deep intervention could only be performed surgically, since the action of the apparatus is not directed on the skin itself, but on the musculo-aponeurotic layer.In this case, constant display and monitoring of the condition of subcutaneous structures is performed.
Highly efficient focused ultrasound device with a high degree of control through deep scanning of dermal structures. It allows you to solve the problem in a timely manner, without affecting the areas without problems. For rejuvenation, only one session is required, after which the effect grows for 2-3 months and lasts up to 1. 5 years.
Portable lifting devices are quite expensive, but at the same time they allow you to take care of your skin without going to a salon. Unfortunately, such devices are unable to correct serious defects due to their low power, which is intended for consumer safety. For prevention and general health purposes, it is best to use time-tested models.
