In the case of a prolonged and persistent skin disease, complex ozone therapy of the whole organism is prescribed. The introduction of ozone intravenously facilitates the purification of blood from disease-causing elements. Wrinkle treatment For the treatment of wrinkles, local ozonization is used in the form of splitting the skin aging sites: nasolabial fold, eye area, etc. Ozone, getting into the skin, restores natural circulation, promotes the outflow of lymph and stimulates the growth of new cells. Wrinkles are smoothed out, and the face acquires a healthy appearance. Adjust the face oval, tighten the fading skin, get rid of the "double" chin, and reduce the body volume - all this is also possible with the help of ozone therapy. Treatment of cellulite and skin stretch marks Unfortunately, cellulite is one of the most common problems among women. And just diets and physical exercises can not cope with it.
