“Thermolifting and photorejuvenation are all high technologies. If I see that it is time to use “heavy artillery” and do something rejuvenating with my face, but first I want to look for information about the procedures myself, how to understand in which direction to act: how does thermolifting differ from photorejuvenation? In what case and when do you need to do one thing, and when another?"
Thermal lifting and photorejuvenation are completely different procedures that give different effects. Although, of course, both the first and the second case are about rejuvenation.
Thermoliftingprovides lifting of problem areas: the skin of the face, the area around the eyes and under the chin by exposing the tissues to radio frequency or infrared radiation. Its task is to stimulate the production of natural collagen in the cells, which means to make the skin toned and youthful. By the way, thermolifting can also be used to work with the body. The procedure is painless and has no rehabilitation period. Moreover, it has no restrictions on solar activity. In any season, you can do thermolifting and immediately after a visit to the clinic continue to live as usual. In addition, depending on the power of the device, most often one procedure is enough to achieve a visible effect. On average, the course is from one to three to four procedures. The duration of the course depends on both the equipment and the skill of the doctor. So it is very important to choose an experienced professional and go to the right place.
Photorejuvenationaimed at leveling skin color, reducing the external manifestations of the vascular network and pigmentation, increasing skin density. The visible effect is noticeable after the first time, and the full course consists of two to five procedures, which should be carried out at intervals of three to four weeks. But, unlike thermal lifting, photorejuvenation is a seasonal thing (and this must be taken into account). The course can only be taken from mid-autumn to early spring - at this time in our latitudes the sun is not active, which means it is safe for the skin exposed to light radiation. After the procedure, there may be redness, temporary swelling and pigmentation (followed by exfoliation). I must say that today there are different methods of photorejuvenation, which one to choose is best suggested by the doctor, based on the individual characteristics of the patient.
