Ozone therapy is a procedure used in cosmetology to prevent and treat various kinds of cosmetic problems. Ozone is a strong oxidizing agent with a disinfecting effect, which is why it is widely used in medicine and to disinfect air and water. Due to its regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties, ozone is very successful in cosmetology. For cosmetic purposes, ozone obtained using an ozonizer is used. The ozonizer provides the exact and necessary amount of ozone in the composition of the oxygen-ozone mixture.
The installation consists of an ozone-resistant material with hermetic parts. The device also has a special filter that purifies oxygen. This is necessary for safe use. The quality of the ozonator installation is confirmed by the CE certificate. Ozone is an unstable gas, so the mixture for the procedure should be prepared no later than 30 minutes before the start of ozone therapy.
Scientists have long appreciated the unique capabilities of ozone. Since ancient times, medicine has used it as an antiseptic. The active form of oxygen is able to fight bacteria, fungi and viruses. It cleanses the body of toxins, restores blood circulation. Given all the useful and important properties of ozone, a unique technique for the prevention and treatment of various diseases - ozone therapy has been developed.
Ozone therapy is a universal treatment method. Ozone helps stimulate the process of tissue regeneration, speeds up metabolism, boosts immunity and enhances the recovery process.
Types of Ozone Therapy
In cosmetology, this procedure includes many wellness treatments, one of which is an injection of an oxygen-ozone mixture. By the method of "introducing" ozone into the human body, procedures can be divided into local and systemic. When skin diseases are used: subcutaneous injection of the mixture, applying the solution to the skin, rubbing into the skin, ozone baths.
In case of acne, the beautician must inject oxygen-ozone mixture into the inflamed areas of the skin. The amount of these injections depends on the complexity of the inflammation.

This procedure is very popular for skin rejuvenation. Ozone therapy saturates the skin with oxygen, the vital processes of cells begin to be stimulated, and the tissues are rejuvenated. A cosmetologist introduces a mixture of oxygen and ozone into the place where wrinkles and signs of skin fading appear.

A noticeable difference between ozone therapy and other equally useful and necessary procedures is its double effect. After all, the treatment takes place not only outside, but inside. A healthy body, strong immunity, well-being and appearance are the result of ozone therapy.

You can get rid of cellulite with the help of several procedures of subcutaneous injection of ozone. Cellulite will disappear, the skin will become elastic and smooth, will get a healthy look.
