Darsonvalization: types, essence of carrying out, contraindications

DarsonvalizationElectrotherapy has long been used in medicine for the prevention and treatment of various diseases. Most of the methods took their pride of place and became popular in cosmetology. One of these effective methods is face darsonvalization. This procedure can be used both as an independent therapeutic technique and in combination with other cosmetic measures. It is often used as a preparation for a procedure to eliminate skin defects, for plastic surgery and in the rehabilitation period after surgery.

Improving skin parameters and preventing age-related changes using electric current have long been known in cosmetology. Many of these procedures are effective and stay ahead of other cosmetic measures. One of these ways is d'Arsonval. It is named after the French physiologist Arsene d'Arsonval.

Darsonvalization is a physiotherapeutic method that acts superficially on the mucous membrane, tissues and subcutaneous fat with high-frequency electrical impulses. Conducting current through a glass vacuum tube with a sealed inert gas, moving along the skin surface, is possible with local darsonvalization. Given the current strength, discharges are used: spark and small. It should be noted that small discharges are absolutely inaudible and not felt. Sparks, on the other hand, emit a peculiar crackle-like sound and create a tingling sensation.

Types of darsonvalization

There are 2 types of darsonvalization: local and general. General darsonvalization is a method in which the patient is completely placed in a "cage". A person in the solenoid coil is exposed to a high-frequency electromagnetic field. It is worth noting that the entire human body is affected. This technique allows you to achieve a hypotensive and sedative effect, as well as increase metabolic processes.

This type of procedure is used for hypertensive diseases, sleep disorders, neurasthenia and certain metabolic diseases. This method is not used very often today. Local darsonvalization is a method of applying current to a part of the human body. This can be the face, head, eyelids, nose, abdomen, back, and the rest of the body.

In addition, darsonvalization can be carried out in two ways: contact and remote.

The contact method is the method in which the electrode is in contact with the skin. The electrode should slide smoothly over the skin surface, while ionizing the air. This method is especially effective for skin changes due to age.

The remote method (non-contact) has no contact with the skin. In this case, the glass tube should be positioned over the skin. It is worth noting that even under such conditions, you can feel a slight tingling sensation. During the procedure, you can notice the glow of ultraviolet radiation, the formation of ozone and air ionization. This method is great for treating acne breakouts and fine lines.

Darsonvalization of the face

In 2017 - professional retraining in the specialty "Medical cosmetology" at the Institute of Professional Technologies and Service PHYMost people are interested in what kind of effect can be achieved by conducting sessions with d'Arsonval. Absolutely not all effects can be noticed immediately. First of all, a person's metabolic processes improve, the skin structure changes, blood circulation improves, and tissue congestion decreases. In addition, you can see changes in the skin: elasticity appears, the work of the glands that secrete sebum improves, and the skin is renewed faster.

The spark discharge affects not only the surface of the skin, but also its deep layer. The condition of the skin is improved due to the fact that the skin, which is an electrolyte, creates an electrical discharge with ultrasonic vibrations.

Carrying out the procedure

Absolutely every cosmetic procedure should begin with cleansing the skin. Make-up is removed from the face, all metal accessories should be removed from the body. After that, the procedure itself should begin, it is performed exclusively on a dry face. It is important to understand that a prerequisite for the d'Arsonval method. The purpose of the procedure depends on the skin problem, age and individual characteristics. Having decided on the purpose of the procedure, the appropriate nozzle and the method of darsonvalization are selected: contact or non-contact. This choice should be made by the specialist, relying on the information received from the patient. The cosmetologist drives the vacuum tube along the massage lines for several minutes. The duration of the procedure is determined exclusively by the beautician.

Darsonvalization does not cause pain and discomfort, only a slight tingling sensation is possible, which does not cause discomfort. The duration of the procedure most often lasts 5-10 minutes, while the time can be gradually increased. This procedure can be performed every day or every other day. Their number is determined by the cosmetologist, depending on the problem that needs to be solved. Most often, 10-15 sessions are carried out with a frequency of 1 month between courses.

Indications for darsonvalization may be the presence of acne and acne. It is used in the treatment of dermatitis and other possible inflammatory processes on the skin. In addition, the procedure is very popular in eliminating the symptoms of age-related wilting: dry and flabby skin. Darsonvalization can be used to treat scars and rosacea, as well as to tone the skin and reduce puffiness and circles under the eyes.

Despite the many positive qualities, the procedure has some contraindications for which it is not recommended to use it. Darsonvalization cannot be performed if a person has heart and vascular diseases, oncological diseases, and blood clotting disorders. Also, the procedure is contraindicated for pregnant women and women during lactation. In addition, darsonvalization should not be performed for people with a pacemaker and a metal prosthesis in the body. If a person has acute and chronic diseases that have worsened during this period, the procedure should be abandoned.

If darsonvalization is prescribed to a person with cardiovascular disease, he may have breathing problems and a heart attack, since blood circulation is significantly increased. Skin clotting disorders can cause serious problems with blood coagulation. If a person has any neoplasms, then the procedure is not recommended, since darsonvalization itself improves blood circulation, which can cause the growth of neoplasms, both benign and malignant. If a pregnant woman uses this physiotherapeutic method, then it is likely that she will be able to provoke a miscarriage, since the electric current stimulates the sinking of the skin and any part of the body.

In addition, individual intolerance to the procedure is also possible. Therefore, it is important to remember that you cannot choose the procedure yourself, without relying on real skin problems. You should strictly adhere to the recommendations of a cosmetologist, who can prescribe darsonvalization in conjunction with other cosmetological methods to achieve the maximum effect.

Acne, wrinkles, pimples, ugly skin - all this does not mean that it is time to give up on yourself. These disadvantages are easily solved by the methods of modern cosmetology.

Darsonvalization is a unique technique named after its inventor, a physicist from France, who was also the ancestor of biophysics. The man's name is Jacques Arsene d'Arsonval.

The inventor of the technique noticed that if the body's tissues are exposed to high-frequency impulse currents, they are not damaged. Moreover, there are certain biological changes that can be considered curative if done correctly.

Alexandra, Moscow

“I suffered from constant problems with the skin on my forehead - it was regularly inflamed. There was always some kind of nasty rash on my cheeks, I tried to squeeze it out, but the situation only got worse. Neither cosmetics nor numerous cleanings helped me. It seemed that my condition was only getting worse, and I was completely desperate. However, I was advised to do darsonvalization of the face, and I decided to try, because it does no harm. Just two procedures - and I have already stopped applying so many "war paint". After the full course, I completely forgot that I had such a problem! I repeat darsonvalization every few months and enjoy life. Now I am thinking of buying the device home in order to deal with other problems with the help of darsonvalization. "

“A great variation on home beauty treatments. I purchased the device on the Internet at the manufacturer's official website. This is a real salvation for me in the summer, as at this time of the year the skin is especially oily and suffers from the sun's rays. I use different attachments. I completely forgot about my skin problems in the summer, and the wrinkles were smoothed out. She began to look younger and fresher, now you do not need to apply a bunch of cosmetics on your face. I recommend to everyone!"

Natalia, Novosibirsk

“The first time I tried to do darsonvalization on my own, at home. The results were not the best, and I went to cosmetology with my machine. The specialist explained to me how to use it and how many procedures to do. I tried it again at home and finally noticed the results: the pores tightened and the pimples disappeared altogether. This effect took 5 treatments. By the way, I really like the fact that there are several attachments, thanks to which the device can be used both for the face and for the body - for example, to get rid of cellulite. Be sure to try and do darsonvalization yourself, just first ask experienced cosmetologists for advice. "

Hochfrequenz 309 apparatus (1950s or earlier). The electrode is off and on.

Darsonvalization - the technique of physiotherapeutic impact on the surface tissues and mucous membranes of the human body by high-frequency pulsed currents, refers to the section "electrotherapy". Named after the author, French physiologist and physicist Arsene D'Arsonval. [one] [unauthorized source? ]

Used since the end of the 19th century [2] [3] ... It was officially used for physiotherapy in the USSR on a large scale. D'Arsonval's apparatus was available in every physiotherapy room. There are 2 types of darsonvalization application: local and general (inductotherapy). Local darsonvalization or diathermy is the effect on certain parts of the patient's body with a weak pulsed alternating current of high frequency and high voltage. With local darsonvalization, the current is passed through a glass vacuum electrode, which is moved along the surface of the body, along the mucous membrane of the oral cavity, scalp, or through a special electrode inserted into the rectum. Under the influence of darsonvalization, blood vessels expand, blood circulation is activated, and tissue nutrition is improved.

There are no systematic reviews of the clinical effectiveness of darsonvalization for 2009 [four] ... In the United States, manufacturers of darsonvalization machines have been repeatedly punished by courts for inaccurate advertising and sentenced to fines and the destruction of equipment. [five] American devices for electrolymphatic therapy Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT), which work on the principle of darsonvalization, are successfully manufactured, sold and officially used in medical institutions in the USA. The author of the Electro-Lymphatic Therapy technology is considered to be the American mystic, medium and "healer" Edgar Cayce, who "invented" the darsonvalization method in the 40s of the last century and called it the "violet ray" (Violet Ray). Restrictions on the use of darsonvalization technology by American manufacturers are related to the patent war unleashed by its other American "inventor" Royal Raymond Rife.

In a number of countries, darsonvalization can be used for disorders in surface tissues and mucous membranes, as well as in the scalp. And also - for cosmetic procedures.

Contraindications to use are malignant tumors, benign tumors at the site of the procedure, epilepsy, cardioarrhythmia, pregnancy, thrombophlebitis, pulmonary tuberculosis and some others. Also a contraindication is the use of a pacemaker. [6] [unauthorized source? ]

Darsonvalization is a physiotherapeutic method based on the use of high-frequency alternating current with a frequency of up to 110 thousand hertz, low power (less than 0.02 mA) and high voltage (up to 20 thousand volts). Low current strength does not lead to significant heating of tissues, and its variable nature prevents possible ion shifts in cell membranes. A certain physiological effect on the body is also exerted by nitrogen oxides and ozone formed during darsonvalization.

Acting on the human nervous system, the current blocks nerve impulses and reduces the sensitivity of the skin, therefore, during darsonvalization, discomfort is minimized. In addition, the current inhibits the activity of the sebaceous and sweat glands, causes a short-term vasospasm, which is replaced by their expansion.

  • Strengthening local immunity;
  • Acceleration of blood circulation;
  • Deep tissue oxygenation;
  • Removal of excess fluid;
  • Suppression of pathogens;
  • Reduction of foci of inflammation;
  • Improving skin tone and elasticity;
  • Prevention of premature skin aging;
  • Stimulating tissue regeneration;
  • Improving hair growth;
  • Normalization of the activity of the sebaceous glands.

As a rule, the duration of a session varies from 2 to 20 minutes, and the optimal number of courses is from 5 to 30 procedures.

There are two types of discharges during darsonvalization: quiet (during the procedure there are no sensations, as well as sound and light) and spark (the current voltage rises, an air gap remains between the skin and the electrode, a slight crackling is heard during the procedure).

There are also darsonvalization methods: remote and contact. The first involves removing the electrode from the skin a few millimeters, and the patient feels a slight tingling sensation. With the contact method, the electrode is led along the massage lines, the patient feels warmth, and the radiation affects the deep tissues of the epidermis.

There is also a method of exposure aimed at a specific area of ​​the skin. During the local method, special vacuum electrodes are used, the effect occurs on some areas, and the duration of the procedure is about 3 minutes in each area. The total duration of the entire local darsonvalization should not exceed 15 minutes. This method eliminates pain, reduces inflammation, and relieves allergy symptoms.

General darsonvalization is a method that is available exclusively in clinics. To carry it out, the patient is placed in a special apparatus called "D'Arsonval's cage". General darsonvalization is not used for cosmetic purposes, it acts on the healing of the whole organism, in particular the nervous and cardiovascular systems.

Before starting the procedure, thoroughly cleanse the skin of the face from make-up and other impurities (if darsonvalization of the body skin is expected, then you must take a shower). Choose funds depending on the type of skin. For example, for owners of dry and dehydrated skin, the Aqua 24 moisturizing foam for makeup remover from Beauty Style is ideal. The foam gently envelops the skin, maintains an optimal level of moisture, and gives a feeling of cleanliness and freshness after use. The tool perfectly removes makeup and can be used by owners of not only dry and dehydrated skin.

To cleanse aging skin, you can use the Beauty Style Taurine & Resveratrol emulsion. The product effectively removes impurities and makeup without damaging the protective water-fat layer of the skin. The high content of resveratrol and taurine neutralizes the action of free radicals, prevents the destruction of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, evens out the tone and slows down the natural aging of the skin.

For oily to combination skin, use Beauty Style's Control Cleansing Foaming Gel for Oily and Combination Skin. It delicately removes sebum and makeup residues without disturbing the hydrolipidic mantle. The product not only removes impurities, but also regulates the activity of the sebaceous glands, mattifies and evens out the skin tone.

If you want a more versatile remedy, we would like to bring to your attention the Cleansing universal micellar water from the Beauty Style brand. It gently removes impurities from the surface of the epidermis, is suitable for all skin types, does not leave behind a feeling of tightness and dryness. Micellar water does not require additional rinsing, it has caring characteristics, making the skin soft and filled with life-giving moisture.

Darsonvalization procedures are carried out on dry skin without first applying cosmetics. Talc can be applied, but you can do without it. Choose the darsonval attachment and the contact or remote method. With the contact method, a glass electrode is applied to the skin, after which the device is turned on. The current increases gradually until a slight tingling sensation or warmth appears. With the remote technique, the electrode is first applied to the skin, after which it is removed by 0.2-1 cm. The duration of one session is about 15 minutes.

After the darsonvalization procedure, it is recommended to apply a moisturizer to soothe the skin in areas of excessive dryness. Use the intensively moisturizing cream "Hydro active 30 h" with prolonged action from the American brand Beauty Style. It is suitable for all skin types, it moisturizes the epidermis well, soothes irritations, gives a feeling of comfort and relieves the feeling of tightness.

If hair darsonvalization is carried out, a comb-shaped attachment is selected. The procedure is used for hair loss, seborrhea, excessive activity of the sebaceous glands, weakening of hair follicles. Before darsonvalization of the scalp, it is necessary to wash the hair with shampoo, and then dry it dry. We recommend using the Control shampoo from the Peruvian brand Kativa. The product gently cleanses the scalp and hair from excess sebum, gives a feeling of cleanliness and freshness, improves the appearance of hair and increases volume. The shampoo does not weigh down the curls, makes them easier to comb and contains mainly natural ingredients. During darsonvalization of the scalp, circular or translational movements of the electrode are performed from the occiput to the forehead and back. The procedure can be carried out every day and to achieve a pronounced result, about 20 sessions are enough.

Darsonvalization | Food and health

Darsonvalization: indications and contraindications

The darsonvalization technique is considered to be one of the most effective physiotherapeutic procedures due to the wide range of its actions. Most often, the darsonvalization procedure is used in cases of the following diseases:

  • dermatological: alopecia, acne, acne, lichen, scleroderma, eczema, atopic dermatitis, keloid scars, burns, frostbite, furunculosis, postoperative scars, bruises, hematomas;
  • neurological: osteochondrosis of the spine, neuritis, neuralgia, consequences of heart attacks and strokes, migraines, dizziness, headaches;
  • cardiovascular: thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, obliterating endarteritis, Raynaud's syndrome, angina pectoris and hypertension;
  • gastrointestinal diseases: colitis, gastritis, intestinal dystonia;
  • diseases of the respiratory system: tonsillitis, tracheitis, rhinitis, pharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, sinusitis, frontal sinusitis, otitis media, acoustic neuritis, bronchial asthma, bronchitis;
  • gum disease: periodontal disease, stomatitis, gingivitis.

Despite the positive properties of this physiotherapy, there is a list of restrictions and contraindications for its implementation:

  • pronounced rosacea of ​​the skin;
  • epilepsy;
  • bleeding tendency;
  • states of exacerbation of chronic or infectious diseases;
  • pregnancy;
  • arrhythmia;
  • tuberculosis (especially in active form);
  • violation of the sensitivity and integrity of the skin;
  • the presence of metal prostheses or implants.

Darsonvalization is an effective method only in the case of an integrated approach to treatment. The course of darsonvalization procedures is made by a doctor according to individual requirements and a medical history.

Apparatus for darsonvalization: properties, results of the procedure

The current from the Darsonval apparatus promotes segmental and local changes, which are expressed in anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and cauterizing effects. Microcurrent also stimulates irritation of nerve receptors, as a result of which the following changes occur:

  • sleep is normalized;
  • the threshold of sensitivity of the skin decreases, which makes the procedure painless;
  • vessels and veins are toned;
  • improves blood supply to cells, oxygen is supplied in large quantities, metabolic processes in the body are improved;
  • headaches disappear;
  • chronic fatigue syndrome passes;
  • muscle spasm is relieved;
  • blood clotting improves;
  • the condition of the skin improves - the complexion is normalized, acne and acne disappears;
  • blood flow to the hair follicles is normalized and, as a result, hair on the head begins to grow;
  • postoperative scars heal faster;
  • facial wrinkles on the face are smoothed, the elasticity and firmness of the skin increases (darsonvalization of the face is a very popular and effective procedure in cosmetology parlors);
  • high blood pressure decreases;
  • the immunomodulatory function is activated;
  • the work of the sebaceous and sweat glands is regulated, hyperhidrosis passes;
  • human performance increases.
  • the synthesis of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid is normalized, the condition of the joints improves.

Observing all the rules for performing the procedure, the result will not be long in coming. Nowadays, the device for darsonvalization can be bought independently and performed at home, but before that you need to consult a doctor, since self-medication can aggravate the existing disease, and not cure it. The device "Crown" for darsonvalization (instructions for which must be indicated by a doctor) is an excellent assistant in the fight against many ailments. Darsonvalization in cosmetology, as well as for medicinal purposes, can both improve and, if used improperly, worsen the condition of the skin.

Types of darsonvalization

There are two types of darsonvalization that are used in different cases:

  • local darsonvalization - based on conducting a high voltage current through a vacuum electrode. This method is used in cases of need for local moxibustion - for cosmetic purposes, for the treatment of acne of various localization. Darsonvalization of the head, eyelids, abdomen, nose, as well as darsonvalization of hair are performed by means of local electrical exposure;
  • general - a person during such a procedure is in the so-called "d'Arsonval's cage", due to which the high-frequency impulse current passes evenly throughout the body. General darsonvalization is used in cases of hypertension, sleep problems, chronic fatigue, neurasthenia. The method has a hypotensive and sedative effect, and also improves metabolic processes in the body.

There is a special attachment for each part of the body. Darsonvalization of the scalp is performed using a special comb, a T-shaped device is used for the back, a regular round nozzle is suitable for other purposes. The technical equipment of the Yusupov hospital ensures comfortable carrying out of many physiotherapeutic procedures, including darsonvalization. Our devices meet all modern requirements, and the staff always carefully monitors the correct procedures.

Carrying out darsonvalization of the face

Darsonvalization is an effect on the human body with an alternating high-frequency impulse current of high voltage and low strength.

Darosonval currents - therapeutic effect

  1. Electric current ... Its voltage is 20 kW, but due to the medium frequency and low power, no tissue damage occurs.
  2. Corona discharge ... The glass electrode contains ionized gas molecules - this is one capacitor plate. The second capacitor plate is leather. An electrical discharge occurs between them. The glass shell of the electrode acts as a dielectric. Spark discharges form microshock waves, which are accompanied by a characteristic crackling sound. Foci of micronecrosis are formed on the skin - they stimulate the production of biologically active substances. In addition, spark discharges damage the membranes of microorganisms.
  3. Ozonation ... In the area of ​​the electric discharge, air ionization occurs, the formation of ozone and nitrogen oxides, which provide a bactericidal and bacteriostatic effect.

Darsonvalization effect (local reactions) when used in cosmetology

The most pronounced effect is observed on the skin. Feeling of the patient during the procedure: tingling and tingling. The spark discharge irritates the receptors in the skin and blood vessel walls. The result is a decrease in sensitivity, which allows the use of Darsonval currents with increased sensitivity, paresthesia, itching (psoriasis, neurodermatitis, allergies), pain (neuritis, neuralgia).

There is an intensive expansion of the blood vessels of the arterial bed. The resulting arterial hyperemia never turns into congestive, venous. The trophic effect is manifested in the improvement of skin color, its smoothing, healing of skin defects with a soft scar, rejuvenation of flaccid skin with reduced turgor, prevention of wrinkle formation.

When exposed to hair, the growth phase is lengthened. Toning of the venous wall occurs, which is used to treat varicose veins. Venous and lymphatic drainage, resorption of edema increases.

Another exceptional feature of Darsonval currents is the inhibition of the secretory activity of the skin glands. Used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and oily seborrhea.

Segmental reactions

When exposed to the paravertebral zones in the corresponding innervated areas, there is an increase in blood flow, activation of metabolic processes. At the same time, local exposure to Darsonval currents stimulates the activity of the innervating segment.

Generalized reaction

In practice, the current is "grounded" to the patient. The general reaction is expressed in the strengthening of adaptive mechanisms, stimulation of immunity.

Darsonvalization: indications and contraindications

  • Flabby, flabby skin of the face, neck, eyelids, chest.
  • Hair loss.
  • Oily seborrhea of ​​the face and hair.
  • Acne.
  • Hyperhidrosis of the face, head, palms.
  • Phlebeurysm.
  • Superficial skin scars.
  • Wounds, ulcers.
  • Eczema.
  • Itchy dermatoses.
  • Neuroses, neuralgia.


  • Common to physiotherapy.
  • Very thin dry skin.
  • Telangiectasia.
  • Hirsutism, hypertrichosis.
  • Factor intolerance.
  • Nevi and birthmarks in the affected area.
  • Hysteria.

Techniques for the application of Darsonval currents

Darsonvalization of the face | Food and healthApplication methods are divided into stable and labile. Stable ones are used when the area of ​​influence corresponds to the size of the electrode (warts, puncture darsonvalization). Mobile techniques are used more frequently. When they are carried out, the electrode moves along the treated surface.

According to the localization of the impact, the methods are divided into:

  • on focal (local effects),
  • reflex (for example, treatment of the collar zone gives a sedative effect in case of neurosis),
  • segmental (on the corresponding segments of the spinal cord along the paravertebral points).

    Dosing of the procedure occurs according to the intensity of the spark discharge - it is determined by the patient's subjective sensations. At low intensity, the patient experiences a slight tingling sensation. Trophism, healing, immune protection are stimulated, skin rejuvenation occurs.

    At moderate intensity, a more pronounced tingling sensation is felt, possibly a slight tingling sensation. The effect of medium intensity has a corrective effect (analgesia, venous and sedative effect). High intensity causes burning and destructive action. Used to remove warts.

    Darsonvalization technique

    First, make-up removal is carried out, a nourishing cream is applied in a thin layer to improve the sliding of the electrode (talc can be applied to the body). The electrode is attached to the skin, then gradually fed and the intensity of the discharge is adjusted according to sensations. With smooth circular motions, the electrode is moved along the affected area. The direction of movement is along the massage lines, continuously. At the end of the procedure, the power is reduced and turned off (without removing the electrode), then the electrode is removed from the skin.

    Duration of darsonvalization procedure

    The total time of the procedure is from five to twenty minutes and depends on the area of ​​influence, the specific zone and the individual sensitivity of the patient. On the face, darsonvalization usually begins at five minutes. The next 3-4 procedures - ten minutes, the next - 15 minutes. The total time does not exceed 20 minutes.

    The darsonvalization course includes 10-15 procedures daily or every other day. After cleansing the face - one-time procedures or a course of 3-5 procedures.

    Details about the darsonvalization of the face, neck and hair and the indications for it can be found in the book "Face aesthetics: modern hardware cosmetology".

- a physiotherapeutic method based on the effect of a high voltage, high frequency and low strength impulse current. Darsonval therapy is used to treat diseases of the skin, nervous system, and genitals.

The darsonvalization apparatus was invented 120 years ago. Its creation was preceded by a series of experiments with alternating current, which were conducted by the French physiologist Jacques Arsene D'Arsonval. He proved that the impact of impulse current has a beneficial effect on human health.

The darsonvalization method turned out to be so effective and inexpensive that it quickly spread to different countries. For example, in the USSR, since the 1980s, the D'Arsonval apparatus was available in almost every physiotherapy room. Darsonvalization has been included in the treatment regimen for most diseases, and in recent decades it has been widely used in cosmetology.

Effects of darsonvalization
  • improving blood circulation and tissue nutrition
  • oxygenation of cells
  • outflow of venous blood and lymph
  • activation of local immunity
  • decreased sensitivity to pain
  • reduction of manifestations of allergies, antipruritic effect
  • anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effect
  • improving skin tone and appearance
  • stimulation of hair growth by enhancing metabolic processes in the hair follicles.
  • penetration of medicinal substances into the deep layers of the skin

Today, the darsonvalization course can be taken not only in physiotherapy rooms. This procedure is often offered in beauty salons, and by purchasing a portable device, it can be done at home. However, it must be remembered that, like any method of treatment, darsonvalization has a number of contraindications that must be strictly adhered to.

The mechanism of the therapeutic action of darsonvalization

D'Arsonval apparatus device

The D'Arsonval apparatus allows you to act on the body with a high frequency impulse current, and of low strength.

The basis of the apparatus for darsonvalization is made up of:

  1. High frequency generator , which generates bell-shaped electrical impulses with the following parameters:
    • carrier frequency 110 kHz
    • pulse duration 100 μs
    • pulse repetition rate 50 imp / s
    • discharge current 0.02 mA
    • voltage 50V
  2. Step-up transformer supplying high voltage electrodes.
  3. Nozzles ... The tips are an electrode for transmitting impulses to the patient. The electrode is enclosed in a sealed glass flask filled with rarefied air. The set of the device includes several attachments:
    • mushroom for the skin;
    • T-shaped for neck and spine;
    • abdominal nozzles - vaginal and rectal for the treatment of diseases of the genital organs and hemorrhoids;
    • "Ear" and "nasal" nozzles for the treatment of ENT organs;
    • scallop to treat baldness and improve hair growth;
    • gum for use in dentistry.
The mechanism of the therapeutic action of darsonvalization Contact technique

- the electrode slides directly over the skin surface.

Currents irritate sensitive nerve fibers located in the thickness of the skin, which activates blood circulation. A short-term vasospasm occurs, which is replaced by a prolonged expansion. Cell nutrition and cellular respiration are improved, and the immune system is activated.


intensively absorb pathogenic microorganisms (phagocytosis), which leads to the early elimination of inflammation. In addition, the turgor of the skin increases, the work of the sweat glands decreases

Non-contact technique

- the distance between the electrode and the skin surface is several millimeters.

  1. the electrode is located above the skin at a distance of 2-3 mm. In this case, multiple spark discharges arise - "cold sparks" slip through.
  2. the electrode is removed by 0.5-1 cm. During the procedure, a strong crackle is heard and long sparks skip. This point method is used to treat small areas of the skin, for example, to cauterize warts. With the non-contact technique of darsonvalization, the therapeutic effect is provided by a number of reactions:
    • Reflex reaction. Spark discharges affect sensitive nerve fibers. Through them, excitation enters the spinal cord. After that, there are reflex reactions of organs that are associated with this part of the spinal cord. At the same time, cells are activated that block pain impulses from the affected area.
    • Vascular response. The vascular wall of arterioles and capillaries relaxes, their lumen expands. This increases blood microcirculation and metabolism in the treated area. The peculiarity of darsonvalization is an increase in venous tone and an improvement in venous and lymphatic outflow.
    • Immune response. The flow of ionized ions causes shock waves, while a characteristic crackling sound is heard. At the site of the impact of ions, skin cells are damaged and die. What foci of micronecrosis stimulate the body's defenses. At the same time, various biologically active substances are released:
  3. prostaglandins
  4. heparin
  5. cytokines
  6. histamine, and subsequently its inhibitors (substances that inhibit its action) As a result, smooth muscles relax, spasms of the bronchi, blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract are eliminated, blood clotting is normalized, the phagocytic activity of leukocytes increases, and allergy manifestations are eliminated.
    • Bactericidal effect. Under the impact of charged ions, bacteria on the skin die. This effect enhances the release of ozone and nitrogen oxides. Small inflammations dry up, and large, filled with pus, break through in the shortest possible time.

The darsonvalization procedure is completely painless. When conducting a session using a non-contact technique, the patient feels a slight pleasant warmth. With non-contact darsonvalization, a slight tingling sensation appears, the smell of ozone is felt in the air.

Local and general darsonvalization Local (local) darsonvalization

impact on certain parts of the body. No more than 3 minutes per site. The total duration of the procedure should not exceed 15 minutes. It is used to relieve pain, inflammation and allergies in different parts of the body.

General darsonvalization (inductotherapy) -

exposure to high-frequency alternating current on the whole body. For this procedure, an apparatus is used - "D'Arsonval's cage". The solenoid coil is used to create a high-frequency pulsed electromagnetic field, with the help of which they affect the entire body and treat hypertension, metabolic disorders in hypothyroidism, diseases accompanied by nervous excitement. Recently, general darsonvalization has rarely been used.

Indications for darsonvalization

  • Diseases of the peripheral nervous system:
  • Central nervous system disorders:
  • Skin pathologies:
    • acne
    • exudative diathesis
    • itchy dermatoses
    • inflammatory infiltrates
    • hyperfunction of the sebaceous glands
  • Cellulite
  • Peripheral circulation disorders:
  • Diseases of the ENT organs:
    • sensorineural hearing loss
    • inflammation of the oral mucosa
    • vasomotor rhinitis
    • chronic sinusitis
  • Diseases of the genital organs:
    • prostatitis
    • impotence
    • inflammation of the female genital organs
    • vaginal dryness

Contraindications for darsonvalization

Absolute contraindications:
  • individual intolerance to electric current
  • benign and malignant neoplasms
  • infectious diseases, febrile conditions
  • the presence of a pacemaker
  • atherosclerosis
  • stage 3 hypertension
  • arrhythmias
  • myocardial infarction
  • cardiovascular failure 2-3 degrees
  • acute cerebrovascular accident - stroke
  • thyroid diseases - hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxicosis
  • active tuberculosis
  • epilepsy
  • excess hair growth in women
  • bleeding and systemic blood diseases
  • pregnancy
Relative contraindications:
  • damage to the skin in the affected area
  • pain with the introduction of cavity electrodes
  • chronic dermatoses
  • hypertrichosis
  • telangiectasias (spider veins)

Side effects of the procedure

  • Excessive facial hair growth. Under the influence of impulse currents, the nutrition of the hair follicle improves. Hair grows faster. Fluffy hair turns into core hair and becomes coarser.
  • The risk of developing congenital pathology. Exposure to an electromagnetic field can cause abnormalities in chromosomes and cause fetal abnormalities.
  • The risk of developing a second stroke ... If less than 6 months have passed since the violation of cerebral circulation, then the likelihood of repeated hemorrhage increases. The risk is associated with increased general and cerebral circulation.
  • Local skin reactions. Under the influence of charged ions, histamine is released, which causes an allergic reaction in patients with individual intolerance to electric current.

Correct use of the darsonvalization apparatus helps to reduce the risk of side effects. There should be no pain during the procedure. If unpleasant sensations develop, you should immediately inform the medical staff and relieve tension. Treatment is carried out daily, in courses of 10-15 sessions. You can repeat the course in 2 months.

If you use the device for darsonvalization at home, be sure to consult your doctor and make sure that you have no contraindications for this procedure.

What is darsonvalization in medicine - methods and indications

Specialty: Practitioner of the 2nd category

darsonvalization in cosmetology

The skin is a kind of indicator of age, the influence of external factors and diseases. Regular skin and body care is not a luxury today, but a necessity. For this purpose, physiotherapeutic procedures are widely used, including the darsonvalization method, also known in everyday life as "darsonval".

What is darsonvalization of the skin? How is this method used in cosmetology? Ekaterina Aleksandrovna Krivdina, a cosmetologist at the "Expert Clinic" Kursk, told us about this and many other things.

- The terms "darsonval", "darsonvalization" may be familiar to those who once visited the physiotherapy room. Ekaterina Aleksandrovna, what is darsonvalization of the skin?

- Yes, that's right, darsonvalization is, first of all, an apparatus physiotherapy procedure. But now it is actively used in cosmetology for skin health. Darsonvalization is based on the effect on the skin of a high-frequency electric current of small quantities.

The name of the method comes from the surname of the French physiologist and physicist Jacques Arsene d'Arsonval. In everyday colloquial speech, darsonvalization is often called "darsonval".

Darsonvalization is completely painless, safe and affordable.

- Can this method be applied to the skin of any area of ​​the body?

- Usually cosmetologists use darsonvalization on the scalp, face and neck. However, do not forget that the skin of other parts of the body also needs care and improvement. Darsonvalization is effective in treating problems such as cellulite and varicose veins. It also helps to get rid of scars, stretch marks and even scars.

Darsonvalization is not carried out on the skin of the eyelids, since this is a hypersensitive area.

- How does darsonval affect the skin? How is it useful for the skin of the face, head, body?

- As practice shows, darsonvalization is beneficial for the skin of the face and body as an independent method of healing, and in combination with other cosmetic procedures. Thanks to this method, redness and inflammation pass, the skin tone increases, and its color improves. This happens due to the activation of metabolic processes and blood circulation, stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin in the areas of exposure to the apparatus.

Darsonvalization enhances the penetration of medicinal and cosmetic products into the deep layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The method is also used when it is necessary to prepare the skin for procedures to eliminate its defects or for plastic surgery, as well as for recovery in the postoperative period.

Another beneficial effect of darsonvalization, which patients note, is a decrease in the frequency and intensity of headaches, relaxation after procedures, and improved sleep.

When exposed to the skin of the neck and face, it is possible to fight acne, excessive fat content, pustular lesions. The method allows you to narrow pores, get rid of spider veins and small wrinkles on the face and décolleté, restore the tone and complexion.

Darsonvalization of the scalp is extremely popular among our hair loss patients. With its help, we treat all types of baldness, strengthen hair follicles, and stimulate hair growth.

Cellulite of any type, swelling of the legs, varicose veins of the lower extremities, vascular mesh on the legs - darsonvalization is also included in the treatment of such conditions.

Darsonval is one of the few physiotherapy methods approved for use in the treatment of conditions such as psoriasis of the skin and scalp. It greatly enhances the penetration of external products - ointments and creams - into the deep layers of the skin.

- Can you use darsonval to get rid of bags under the eyes?

- Yes, the darsonvalization course will be useful for people with so-called paint bags under the eyes, which are swellings in the cheekbones and appear in many with age.

- Ekaterina Aleksandrovna, tell us about contraindications for skin darsonval, if any

- Yes, of course, there are a number of conditions in which darsonvalization is not recommended. These include serious cardiovascular diseases (for example, after a heart attack, stroke, with high blood pressure). The procedure is not carried out for persons with pacemakers, blood clotting disorders, and oncological diseases.

Pregnancy, the period of breastfeeding and children's age (up to 6 years) are also a contraindication for darsonvalization.

There are also patients with individual intolerance to the effects of electric current on the body. They are, of course, forbidden to carry out any electrotherapy, including darsonval.

- How many darsonvalization sessions are needed to get the visible effect of the procedures?

- The cosmetologist decides on the required number of procedures in each case individually. On average, I recommend a course of 10-15 procedures with an interval of 1-3 days. Repeated courses can be carried out after three months. To maintain healthy skin, it is enough to take two courses a year.

- Is it possible to combine skin darsonvalization with other methods of physiotherapy?

- Yes. Often, darsonvalization of the facial skin is combined, for example, with vacuum therapy, with brushing (exposure of the facial skin with rotating brushes) or cleaning with ultrasound. The combination of different procedures prolongs the positive effect of their implementation. In addition, we achieve the desired result in eliminating the cosmetic problem faster.
