Contraindications to the procedure
Very often, the procedure of ozone therapy is called extremely friendly and completely safe for humans. This is partly true, but it is worth considering that the opposite opinion still exists in medicine. There are no hard contraindications, there are side effects instead. These include mild dizziness, drowsiness, short-term weakness. There may be an allergic reaction to the skin, such as urticaria, which quickly passes without much additional effort.
This is quite a painful method. Therefore, just before the start of the ozone skin rejuvenation procedure on the treated area of the face, it is advisable to apply an anesthetic cream and leave it for a short time (20-30 minutes). Then they include an ozonizer, which is a small ergonomic device, at the end of which there are very small and thin needles. Ozone is supplied to them through a special tube consisting of five branches.
Ozone therapy for acne
Classical ozone therapy for the face of acne takes a course in 5-6 sessions. A cosmetologist is obliged for each patient who approached him to choose an individual treatment, and this is usually a complex of injections with general ozonization and with the use of cosmetics containing active oxygen. The treatment is as follows: the area of the skin of the face on which the acne is located is surrounded by ozone by means of microinjections. After 24 hours, or so, due to the intense effects of active oxygen on the acne, they simply come out. At the site of injections, there will be no scars or redness.
Often, along with ozone therapy, treatment is carried out in conjunction with ozonized oil or water. This method of treatment of acne is not exactly medical, but the effect very often exceeds all the expectations of patients, especially since it is completely simple to perform and does not cause absolutely no side effects. And the positive efficacy of this procedure lies precisely in the fact that gaz-ozone can not only quickly heal inflamed areas of skin, but also affect the metabolism. Due to the active effect of ozone, the functions of the sebaceous glands are normalized, which reduces the release of subcutaneous fat. This not only cleans the skin, but also the whole body, increases immunity, improves the metabolic process, and therefore, such a problem as acne is solved.
Cost, and how is ozone therapy for the face
Customers' expenses will largely depend on the method of the procedure - whether additional blood collection will be carried out, what the dosage is, what is the size of the area being treated, etc. The average price for one session of intravenous injection in different regions ranges from 1 thousand to 3 thousand rubles.
