Biorevitalization is a method of revitalising the skin in a biological way. The procedure aims to rejuvenate and hydrate dry, tired and sun-damaged skin with an immediate effect.
It is an injection method that introduces small doses of Hyaluronic acid into the dermis of the skin. This improves cellular metabolism and deeply moisturises the dermis. These procedures reduce the speed of skin aging and improve the quality of the skin from the inside out through Biorevitalisation.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in tears and in the intracellular spaces of the skin, playing an important role in maintaining moisture levels and producing collagen, giving the skin softness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is thus the main structural element of tears and connective tissue. With age, this natural substance is diminished, causing the skin to wrinkle and dry.
During the procedure, the skin is injected with small doses of pure hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin. Hyaluronic acid maintains moisture in skin. One molecule combines 200-500 molecules of water by maintaining the balance of moisture in tissues. It is therefore evident that hyaluronic acid’s function is to moisturise the skin, which creates a youthful appearance.
The amount of hyaluronic acid in young peoples’ derma is rather high as younger skin appears bright and youthful. However, eventually the amount of “youth elixir” starts to decline unstoppably and, thus, reduces the tonus of skin, tightness, elasticity, skin stops looking lively, looks dehydrated and wrinkles are formed. In addition to natural biological ageing, the skin is also affected by photoageing, i.e., the withering and ageing of skin is additionally stimulated by the UV rays.
American scientists proved In 2007 that injecting hyaluronic acid stimulates the synthesis of collagen and enabled moisturising of the skin. Moreover, patient’s own production of hyaluronic acid was stimulated also. Derma fibres are formed, therefore creating a lifting effect of the skin’s tissues. Biorevitalization is usually carried out in 3 separate procedures, with a pause of around a month between each. The nature of the treatment allows for long-term results through a safe technique.
Typically, the procedures are performed in areas such as the face, neck, decolletage (lower neck line) or hands. These areas of the body are usually subjected to the most UV rays and therefore show a more rapid damage of skin through photoageing. Biorevitalization can be performed in any area of body however, providing that it is safe and beneficial to the patient. Biorevitalization of the face can also be carried out at different depths of tissues, depending on the required treatment.
Biorevitalization can also be used in the treatment of hair weakness. By introducing intradermal injections to the area, this has a direct effect on the hair follicles and sebaceous glands, improving the trophic processes and normalizing the function of the sebaceous glands and the composition of their secretions. Patients can expect a result which offers stronger, shinier and silkier hair.
Patients who are ideal candidates for Biorevitalization include:
- Those with young skin – ageing prophylaxis
- Those suffering from decreased elasticity of skin
- Those with dry and dehydrated skin.
- Those with stressed and inadequate nutrition
- Those with fine lines
- Those who smoke and have a ‘tired’ appearance to their skin
- Those who wish to combine treatment with other forms of aesthetic procedures
- Those who have undertaken aggressive skin procedures such as peels
- Those who would like prophylaxis of acne scars and stretch marks
- Those who would like to hydrate and revitalise skin post-UV exposure
Biorevitalization at our clinic
Patients travel from all over the UK and Europ to have Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi perform Biorevitalization treatments at the London Medical and Aesthetic Clinic, which is one of the leading training centres for Biorevitalization, Sculptra and Ellanse treatments in the UK and Europe.
