Reviews of bio-revitalisation and mesotherapy
Anna: I am 38 years old. I began to notice fine lines, skin color has become gray, the face looked tired and haggard. Usually in this case I advise you to rest, to sleep, to go on vacation. But this is not possible. Then my beautician appointed to me 4 the procedure of mesotherapy. He only made two and already look younger for several years. Friend began to look with envy, found out I have a procedure name, and now collect money for a salon visit.
Maria: My impressions are only positive. The result from biorevitalisation liked it even more than that of mesotherapy, which was done about a year ago. Treatments came once in two weeks, I was enough to do two procedures. Before the procedure is done anesthesia, injections because I almost did not feel. The discomfort came when the blunt needle from the syringe. But I just asked her to replace, and until the end of the procedure, felt no pain. Paulke the skin remains a long time, because I did the procedure on Friday, spent the weekend at home, and on Monday were going to surprise their girlfriends and female fresh face.
Katherine: did a course of mesotherapy and didn’t tell anyone. But when the first improvement, the questions started, had to tell. My desire to look good not many of my surroundings understood as «all the best to children», and some already and grandchildren. I feel joy when I see my younger face in the mirror when you put the cream on raskladyvaya and become firmer-looking skin when you can spend the morning time enjoyable for me, instead of Foundation to cover up the boring spots. It is a great pleasure to look and feel good.
Anastasia: did and mesotherapy and biorevitalization face, neck and décolleté many times. After the course of treatments the skin looks hydrated, smoother, it feels as if skin is filled with moisture from the inside, as once in his youth. Effect I lasts somewhere about six months. And meso, and biorevitalization for me are painful, especially strong pain is felt in the temples and neck. There were cases when on a place of injections remained small bruises, but they quickly pass if to lubricate them periodically with the heparin ointment.
