What is biorevitalization – as opposed to mesotherapy
Those who believe that this cosmetic procedure allows you to get rid of wrinkles are mistaken. Not! It is able to return the skin to its previous elasticity, firmness and color inherent in healthy and youthful skin. This procedure improves the appearance of the skin and also slows down aging.
Commentary by cosmetologist and dermatovenerologist Oksana Tatarskaya
The essence of the biorevitalization procedure is the replenishment of the hyaluronic acid reserves of the skin, the supply of which begins to decrease due to the natural aging processes of tissues or under the influence of various aggressive external or internal factors (excessive solar insolation, weight loss, various conditions of the body, accompanied by its dehydration).
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the skin and plays an important role in maintaining skin elasticity and hydration.
The main effects of biorevitalization:
- activation of skin cells (fibroblasts), which, in turn, trigger the synthesis of collagen and elastin;
- an increase in the hydroreserve (moisture content) of the skin due to the retention of water molecules by the injected hyaluronic acid and the stimulation of the synthesis of its own hyaluronic acid.
Today, bioreparants are more often used – drugs that, in addition to hyaluronic acid, contain amino acids, vitamins, trace elements, peptides. And due to a more diverse composition and more diverse effects that they have on the regulation and activation of skin function, they have a more pronounced “rejuvenating” effect.
Plasma therapy has a similar effect on the skin with bioreparants due to the content of platelets (cells that trigger the synthesis of fibroblasts in the skin) and various microelements, vitamins, electrolytes, hormones and growth factors. All these substances are normally found in the blood plasma of a healthy person and, when injected into the skin, trigger a cascade of various reactions that contribute to skin rejuvenation.
In some clinics, the RegenLab technique is used, in addition to all the above effects, it allows you to create a dense fibrin network in the skin, activates the production of the extracellular matrix and fibrillar proteins. This contributes to a more pronounced improvement in skin turgor and tone, an increase in the thickness of the dermal layer of the skin, a significant decrease in the severity of facial wrinkles and folds.
Who is more suitable for?
- biorevitalizants and “unenriched” plasma therapy are more suitable for skin under 35;
- for the skin after 35 years, bioreparants and a procedure for cellular skin rejuvenation using the RegenLab technique are more suitable.
Both procedures are coursework, they can be carried out all year round, they do not require long rehabilitation.
What else do you need to know about biorevitalization?
- This method is based on intradermal injections of natural hyaluronic acid, which restores water balance, thereby creating ideal conditions for the vital activity of cells. As a result, the properties of the fabric are restored and the external effect is enhanced.
- This procedure there is a “fast” and “slow” result… At first, the patient sees the smoothing of wrinkles and folds immediately after the procedure. After 7-14 days, a “slow” result comes when the cells begin to produce their own hyaluronic acid. It is at this moment that the skin begins to “restore” and look more youthful.
- Many people confuse biorevitalization with mesotherapy, but these procedures are fundamentally different from each other. The drug for mesotherapy includes vitamins and minerals that are poorly produced in the body. Mesotherapy can be carried out starting from the age of 25, while the procedure in question is best not done until the age of 35.
- Exists 2 main types of biorevitalization: injection and laser. Injection is more popular, as girls see the result immediately. The whole procedure lasts an hour, during which time a certain amount of hyaluronic acid is injected into the problem areas on the face. During laser biorevitalization, a special gel is applied to the skin, which contains hyaluronic acid, which changes its structure when interacting with the laser.

When biorevitalization of the face is needed
This procedure can be done to all women, starting from 35-40 years old (it is at this age that the first signs of aging begin to appear on the skin). So, what are the main indications for this procedure?
- Dry skin. If your skin is dry and dehydrated, then this procedure will become a sip of water for it.

- Pigmentation on the skin. If you have a large number of moles or other age spots, then the procedure in question will help eliminate this problem.
- Restoration of the skin condition after various plastic surgeries.
- If your skin has been damaged by UV rays, then this procedure will help you get rid of all the consequences of long exposure to the sun or in a solarium.
Contraindications for biorevitalization
Like any cosmetic procedure, biorevitalization has contraindications. So, under what conditions can you not go for this procedure and what complications can there be?
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding. During pregnancy, any interference with the functioning of the girl’s body should be made only if necessary. Skin care is not a necessity, so it is best to wait with this procedure.
- Colds. If your temperature rises right before the procedure, it is better to cancel the session. In case of exacerbation of any diseases, cosmetic procedures are also undesirable.
- Malignant tumors. When hyaluronic acid is injected, the development of not only healthy cells, but also tumor cells can be stimulated.
- Intolerance to hyaluronic acid. There are isolated cases when a person has an individual intolerance to this drug. Consult your doctor prior to your procedure to rule out this risk.
- Autoimmune diseases. In case of autoimmune diseases, you also cannot visit the salon for biorevitalization, since the body is able to start actively producing antibodies to its own cells.
