To be honest, each of us wants to stop time and prevent aging. Cosmetologists are convinced that modern treatments can help you look younger for a few years and work is not worse than the surgeon's scalpel. But, what are the "pros" and "cons" are rejuvenating procedures?



The story of Botox is not started with the cosmetics and medicine. The first botulinum toxin used in the late 70-ies of the American ophthalmologist Alan Scott. He injected the drug to patients in the orbital muscle of the eye to cure blepharospasm. I would suggest doctor, that some time in her task will be lining up to women to cure the neurological disorder and to get their "dose of beauty"?

Having started to study the drug, Allen revealed that botulinum toxin inhibits the nerve impulse that travels from the nervous system to the muscle fibers, causing the muscles of the face are relaxed, and shallow and deep wrinkles are smoothed. Since Botox takes a worthy position among the procedures of rejuvenation.

For: Botox is an effective cure to work with the area of the forehead. It is well smoothes wrinkles in this area, and the result lasts at least six months. By the way, the correct way of administration of the drug a person will not be like the doll and will not lose facial expression. At the last medical Congress in Monaco it was called the new trend of the reduction of the number of administered botulinum toxin. Today, the patient with the doll facial expression - is a bad, unprofessional work of the doctor.

Against: you Need to consider whether you need to use Botox if you want to remove the notorious "crow's feet". The drug is well corrected this defect. However, because botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles around the eyes, and we need to blink, close their eyes, some people on this soil formed indemnification wrinkles on the inner corner of the eye. Botox in the lower third of the face should be cleaved only by a qualified, competent doctor, as well as taking into account the anatomical features of this zone, the distribution of the Botox here is unpredictable.

Important: the injection of botulinum toxin is a cautious attitude if you have a predisposition to swelling and the presence of hernia in the eyes. The fact that Botox has the ability to slow the outflow of fluid, swelling or hernias is desirable. A qualified specialist will help you to choose the other facial rejuvenation appropriate in this case.



The filler is the injection of a stabilized hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin, in order to smooth out the wrinkles and model the face.

Grandparents fillers were invented in the 19th century. For the correction of visual defects of the facial injections were made on the basis of paraffin. In the beginning of the 20th century for these purposes began to be used for human fat, in 50-e years have done some experiments with silicone. Modern fillers are based on hyaluronic acid appeared not so long ago - in the early 90-ies and became a revolutionary breakthrough in the world of cosmetology.

For: With fillers it is possible to make t.n. non-surgical contour plastics. This is especially true for age-related changes. With age it is not atrophy of subcutaneous fat, that is, its layer on the face reduces, and t.n. "buccal cushions". In this case, the fillers replace the lost volume of the subcutaneous fat and restore youthful roundness. Also use the fillers if you want, you can change the shape of the nose or on the chin. The effect lasts on average from 4 months to one year.

Cons: Fillers requires precision, if a little more text on hyaluronic acid, you may experience swelling of the face, since it tends to keep the moisture. And can keep for a long time.

It is also worth to know in advance of a beautician, what he uses drugs for this procedure. The main thing that they are not synthetic and was on the market for at least five years. The drug, which is in favor of beauty for less than five years, generally, little to study, and really can first be tested only on the consumer. In this case, the unknown is not for allergic reactions or other side effects that can be given.


Biorevitalization is the same thing as fillers. Only the injections are made on the basis of the unstabilized and stabilized the less dense hyaluronic acid. The procedure is designed to restore the water balance of the skin.

About: the Procedure does not have moisturizing effects because hyaluronic acid retains moisture in the skin. It also stimulates the synthesis of collagen in the body and hyaluronic acid well-worked out fine wrinkles around the eyes, corners of the mouth and skin folds.


Against: Biorevitalization of unstabilized hyaluronic acid is possible and at a young age. However, the effect is short-lived, and the procedure will need to be repeated more often.


The procedure involves the mechanical action of the needle on the skin in order to harm it, and the introduction of special cocktails.

For: In a result of injuries from needles appears post-traumatic edema, and in the process of wound healing there is a lifting effect. Because of the mechanical mixing and the effects of the drugs stimulated the breakdown of fat deposits, improves blood circulation and metabolic processes in the cells.

Cons:If you want to undergo mesotherapy in order to get a lifting effect, you have to understand that he will eventually be small. And meso therapeutic cocktails usually consist of three to four components, can cause allergies. Moreover, it is difficult to immediately recognize, for each component having a negative reaction.

Important: If you decide to mesotherapy, to ensure that the cocktail was more than two components, reducing the risk of allergies.


The procedure resembles a specific mesotherapy, only minor injuries of the skin are created with the use of the laser and the cocktails here are not used.

For: unlike mesotherapy, the skin creates more trauma. This procedure begins the process of regeneration of the skin. The body has a tendency to patch up the holes so blood vessels expand, which for the injured areas to help tend fibroblasts, platelets. As a result of active "repair", achieved a good lifting effect.

Cons: Can experience post-traumatic pigmentation of the skin. So, if you are going to leave in a hot country, the procedure should be done at least one month in advance.
