Microcurrent Facial Therapy
According to the research of European specialists, stimulation of the skin with a weak electric current helps to increase the content of elastin in it by 40-50 percent, collagen - by 10-12 percent. As a result of the action of the current on the inner layers of the epidermis, an accelerated division of cells occurs, an additional supply of nutrients due to an improvement in blood flow. The amount of chemicals within the skin cells increases. There is an increased supply of oxygen. After the procedure, creams and masks are better absorbed.

It depends on which area of the body or face is affected and for what purpose. Now such types of apparatus massage as lymphatic drainage, vacuum, vibration, water are popular.

This method was originally used to stimulate blood circulation and metabolic processes in physiotherapy. Its name derives from the surname of the French physicist and physiotherapist Arsonval. High-voltage high-frequency alternating current is applied to parts of the body through glass tubes. In cosmetology, this procedure has become popular due to its availability, lack of side effects and simplicity.
The device is small and quite effective not only in beauty salons, but also at home. With this device, you can quickly get rid of acne, acne, inflammation. It is also possible to keep the skin beautiful, promptly treating fine wrinkles, enlarged pores, eliminating excessive greasiness or dryness. Such devices cope well with spider veins and skin regeneration. Under the influence of high-frequency current, blood circulation increases and metabolic processes in the skin are activated.
The myostimulation procedure can be performed both in beauty salons and aesthetic medicine centers, and at home. The device acts on the muscles with a series of electrical impulses (via skin electrodes). Muscle contractions due to stimulation of the apparatus can be related to contractions during maximum physical exertion. This contributes to a significant increase in skin tone and smoothness. Typically, the following steps are required to use the machine:
- clean the skin from cosmetics;
- set the required duration and intensity;
- placing the electrodes on the face or body, they should be symmetrical;
- enables the active mode of the device;

Most muscle stimulants are powered by batteries. There are some contraindications for their use, so it is advisable to first consult a specialist before starting use.
This is a method of resurfacing the skin using abrasives. It is based on the ability of abrasive particles to penetrate the skin and exfoliate the keratinized parts of the skin. The micro-particles of abrasives have good penetrating properties. Exfoliation (skin resurfacing) frees up space for further skin tissue growth. Currently, the devices use two types of abrasives: diamond powder and aluminum dioxide. After processing, the remaining abrasive dust is removed using a vacuum cleaner.
This method is based on the body's response to cooling. After a sharp short-term decrease in temperature, various hormones, including endorphins and adrenaline, are released in the skin, and immunity and blood supply increase. Now different types of cryotherapy methods of the apparatus are practiced in beauty salons. Some of them are:
- cryo-spray hardware: liquid nitrogen (-180 to -50 degrees) is sprayed through a special device;
- cryelectrophoresis: frozen chemicals are injected under the skin by means of electrical impulses;
- cryochambers: chambers with cold air and nitrogen (-130 degrees) for the whole body.
These devices rely on the use of low voltage (40-50mA) weak electrical pulses. Its effect causes an increase in the content of histamine, serotonin and other active components in the subcutaneous layer. In cosmetic technology, devices for iontophoresis and disinfection are used. The first type of devices transmits the current to the surface of the skin through specialized attachments. It is used to treat couperosis, acne, pigmentation, smoothing of facial wrinkles. The second type of devices is designed for cleaning. Combine the use of alkaline solutions with galvanizing. The loosening of the skin contributes to its deep degreasing and the elimination of dead skin scales.

Various types of peels using devices purify and help nourish all layers of the epidermis. Cleansing is deep and involves the cellular level. Devices for other purposes, such as ultrasonic and laser liposuction devices, work on the principles of tissue cleansing and stimulation. These methods are used to remove excess weight, fat deposits. Laser peeling not only removes the top layer of the epidermis, but improves blood circulation and muscle tone when exposed to light waves. Innovative laser resurfacing with fractional lasers, with very deep cleaning, practically does not cause damage.

Even for home devices, nozzles for mechanical and vacuum peeling types are common.More complex types of peeling are performed by specialists in salons and centers of aesthetic medicine.
