You may have heard of Bio-revitalisation in the media or in your aesthetics/skin clinics but what is it, and what can it do for you? Bio-revitalisers are fast becoming the most popular preventive and corrective method for the skin. It’s a way of returning life back to skin and it’s a non-surgical and widely applied way to fight skin ageing and various skin problems in aesthetic medicine. Joanna Koussertari practitioner for JK Skin Aesthetics and over 15 years experience in the aesthetic industry, explains.
‘Bio-revitalisers are pure Hyaluronic Acid of non-animal origin injected into the superficial dermis layer of the skin in small doses to restore the life back to your skin. These treatments are both for young and mature skins and compliment other skin treatments such as Dermal Fillers and work well along side meso therapy for optimal skin health. Bio-revitalisation improves the condition and appearance of the skin by hydrating and restoring skin elasticity, all important for skin tightening. They do this by retaining water and acting with collagen and elastin in our skin, this gives you a more radiant youthful glow with noticeable tightening and softening of lines and wrinkles.’
Bio-revitaliser treatments are minimally invasive they are injected by hand. Immediately after the treatment, the skin has a bubbly effect for up-to 48 hours, bruising can be a factor as with all injectable treatments. Treatments take about 45 minutes, the skin is cleansed and disinfected prior to treatment and clients are asked not to wear makeup for at least 24 hours.
Two treatments are required 4 weeks apart, in some cases, depending on skin quality a third treatment may be of benefit as recommended by your treating practitioner. Results will be noticed over a period of 4-6 weeks and will last for approximately 6 months, whereby a client may wish to have further treatment, if the client has no further treatment skin will return to pre-treatment state over time.
