Harm and benefit of facial ozonotherapy - indications and contraindications of the procedure
What is the high effectiveness of ozonotherapy in cosmetology?
Ozone therapy for the face is one of the most popular methods used to combat early skin aging. The use of ozone (O3) makes it possible to accomplish the almost impossible. There is a real opportunity to turn back time and regain a smooth and beautiful, velvety and delicate skin. But, before deciding on this procedure, it is necessary to understand: what indications and contraindications exist for the procedure. What is the use and harm of this manipulation? Is it possible to carry out the procedure at any age or are there any restrictions?
Ozone therapy for face
Experts recognize that this is one of the most promising areas in cosmetology. The main distinguishing feature of this method is not the masking of defects, but the restoration of normal functioning of the dermis. It is the improvement of microcirculation, the normalization of the production of collagen and elastin, as well as the normalization of the metabolic processes, which is the basis of ozonotherapy. Many professional cosmetologists recommend using this procedure as a means for removing scarring , striae, alopecia and many pathological manifestations. Therefore, ozone treatment is becoming an increasingly popular method of restoring facial skin and brings maximum results.
- Skin rejuvenation;
- Acne ;
- Dark circles under the eyes;
- Correction of the face oval;
- Excessive dryness of the skin;
- Fungal lesions;
- Red flat lichen;
In cosmetology, the use of ozone can be very diverse. However, the most important difference is that this substance normalizes metabolic processes, stimulating the normal operation of the dermis.
Skin aging manifests itself in the form of thickening of the keratin layer, cell division slows down, the dermis becomes thinner, the production of collagen becomes minimal. Ozonotherapy can solve all these problems in the shortest possible time. The use of ozone makes it possible to make changes in the work of not only superficial, but also deep layers of the dermis.
Introduction of it under the skin can solve many problems. There is an activation of metabolic processes, the permeability of cell membranes increases, respectively, the nutrients of creams and masks penetrate much more easily inside the cell. The result is not only resilient and nutritious skin, but also a healthy and rested complexion. Oxygen utilization by tissues is significantly increased, which leads to an increase in the intensity of energy processes. Activates antioxidant activity, accelerates elimination of toxins and increases the rate of neutralization of free radicals. There is a stimulation of the synthesis of proteins, collagen and elastin. Also, experts note the increase in the ability of tissues to retain moisture, while retaining elasticity.
Methods of ozonotherapy
Depending on what problems need to be overcome, a specialist can recommend several options for impact.
- Local ozone therapy. The essence of the procedure is the use of injections of a mixture consisting of ozone and oxygen. These injections are performed in the subcutaneous layer. Active cocktail allows you to quickly activate all the metabolic processes.
- Autohemotherapy in combination with ozonotherapy. The patient's blood is used, which is mixed with ozone and injected. This method has become widespread in the treatment of severe forms of acne.
- Ozonized olive oil. Another kind of local ozone therapy. It is used as a means for facial and body massage. And as a basis for making a cream or mask.
- Systemic ozone therapy. It includes intravenous injection of ozone, mixed either with the patient's blood, or with some drug substance. Ozone has a general stimulating effect on the body, speeding up metabolic processes.
Ozone therapy for acne
The essence of the method is that the cosmetologist cracks the inflammatory focus with a mixture of oxygen and ozone. In this case, ozonotherapy is combined with magnetotherapy. This method of treating acne is most effective.
The amount of mixture per injection, the depth of puncture and the multiplicity of procedures depend only on the severity of the inflammatory process, as well as the individual characteristics of the organism. On average, the course of treatment is from four to six procedures performed and an interval of 5 days, and the amount of mixture per each injection is approximately 5 cm3.
Significant improvement in most patients is noted after the first introduction. It manifests itself in the form of softening of infiltrates, reduction of exudation, swelling and reduction of redness around the focus of the inflammatory process.
In the severe course of acne, high efficiency was shown by the introduction of ozone in combination with the patient's blood. Autohemotherapy, combined with ozonotherapy, allows solving even the most complicated cases.
Ozone therapy in the "problem zone"
The use of a cocktail consisting of O3 and oxygen makes it possible to solve problems that disturb the patient as soon as possible. Injections are conducted according to a scheme developed by a specialist individually for each client.
- Double chin;
- Correction of the face oval;
- Flaccid neck;
- Mimic wrinkles.
This is by no means the entire list, which can be corrected with the help of ozone injections. The fat tissue reacts perfectly to the active cocktail introduced under the skin. There is a densification and a decrease in volume.
Reviews of patients who tried the effect of this method, of course, indicate its high effectiveness. This procedure can be attributed not so much to cosmetic, as to medical-cosmetic measures. This is what explains the tremendous results from the use of the systemic method of treatment. The combination of the local method of exposure in conjunction with systemic application, allows to solve not only point problems, but also significantly improve the state of the organism. An increase in metabolic rate triggers the regeneration of all tissues, and the removal of free radicals releases the body from a strong negative impact.
Before use, it is recommended that several specialists be examined to determine the patient's state of health. Only on the basis of these data, the cosmetologist can make a decision on the safety of using this method as a fight against signs of premature aging.
- Diseases of the blood associated with the possibility of internal bleeding;
- Individual intolerance;
- Blood clots;
- Acute myocardial infarction;
- Alcohol addiction;
- Acute pancreatitis;
If the patient has one of these diseases, the use of ozonotherapy is not only undesirable, but also very dangerous for the state of health.
