The properties of ozone have been studied for a long time. At the moment, this gas is widely used in alternative medicine. It is a major component of ozone therapy. Ozone can normalize blood circulation and clotting process, expand blood vessels, and restore oxygen transport.
Features and types of ozone therapy
There are many types of ozone therapy, each of which has its characteristics and indications for use. Facial skin rejuvenation is usually performed by injection. Special mixtures containing ozone are applied to the skin.
Applications and compresses are considered the most painless ways to rejuvenate facial skin with ozone. In this case, the surgical impact on the skin is completely absent. The skin is treated with special compounds that smooth out fine wrinkles and restore firmness and elasticity.
If inhaled, ozone may cause intoxication. In ozone therapy, however, this gas is not used pure and is injected using special devices. Due to this, it does not harm the body.
The injection method of ozone therapy is a rather complicated procedure and is accompanied by a certain course of rehabilitation. Before the operation, problem areas of the skin are treated with painkillers. Then a special composition based on ozone is injected into the epidermis using many needles located on the nozzle of the ozonator.
Even though ozone therapy is always accompanied by prior injection of painkillers, it is very difficult to call this procedure painless. Ozone spreads rapidly through all layers of the epidermis, causing unpleasant or even painful sensations. Besides, after the operation, the face may remain swollen for several days, and the treated areas of the skin may differ in whitish tone. This effect disappears completely after two or three days.
Skin rejuvenation using ozone therapy can be performed as a single operation or carried out in a complex. The main criterion, in this case, is the degree of skin aging. After ozone therapy sessions, external changes in the skin are observed almost immediately - expression lines disappear, elasticity appears, and complexion changes. The skin looks healthy and smooth.
With the help of ozone therapy, it is possible not only to slow down the process of skin aging, but also to get rid of many defects – pimples, blackheads, acne, and scars.
Indications and contraindications of ozone therapy
It is recommended to rejuvenate the skin only if there are appropriate indications. Ozone therapy is no exception in this case. Oxygen procedures are prescribed in the presence of the first signs of skin aging:
- expression lines and small wrinkles
- body fat
Please note that if certain factors are present, no experienced specialist will prescribe ozone therapy. Contraindications in this case include:
- diabetes mellitus
- endocrine system diseases
- oncological diseases
Besides, some people may experience individual ozone intolerance, so be sure to undergo a preliminary examination. Otherwise, instead of skin rejuvenation, you will get serious health problems.
