The "Gefestus" apparatus is for electromagnetic pulse cosmetic massage
The method of the cosmetic massage is composed by Prof., Doctor of Medicine, and head of the normal physiology department of the Ural State Medical Academy V. I. Bankov.
1. Fundamentals of the efficiency of the electromagnetic pulse (EP) cosmetic massage.
1.1 The physiological mechanism of the cosmetic massage is based on the principle of feedback
of the metabolic processes and intensification of metabolism and microcirculation in the skin tissues,
due to the weak pulsed and complex modulate electromagnetic field and due to the usage of the special
cosmetic inducer with micro thermal and microvibrational effect.
1.2 Under the influence of the EP cosmetic massage, the obsolete cells of the epidermis (corneal layer) are exfoliated and removed; the blood flow is increased to the massaged area (Fig. 1). The skin's nourish improves, it becomes elastic and smooth. At the same time the venous blood outflow and lymph circulation amplify; due to this fact the edemas and stagnation in the massaged and in the nearest skin's areas are reduced. The skin glands functions are improving. The specific biologically active substances such as histamine, acetylcholine are exuded, which increase the metabolic processes in the subcutaneous tissue. The tonic effect after the EP cosmetic massage retains from 2 to 6 days, which is twice longer than in the well-known and traditional methods of massage.
1.3. The control process of the electromagnetic pulse (EP) cosmetic massage is based on the determination of the individual, anatomical and physiological characteristics of the human skin by the feedback sensor at the massage time.
2. The peculiarities of usage of the "Gefestus" apparatus for the EP cosmetic massage
2.1 The "Gefestus" apparatus is portable and compact facial massage, legs massage,
back massage and other parts of body massage, due to the massage cosmetic inductors, which direct
their mechanical energy and electromagnetic pulse on the working surface of the inductors.
2.2 The EP cosmetic massage is the part of the cosmetic procedures, it can be used for personal hygiene, for diseases control, prevention and treatment which associated with cosmetic defects, as well as for the aging skin prevention and for loss of hair (psilosis). The EP cosmetic massage can be used for the soft facial cleansing, for the resolution of infiltrates, scars and for the wilting skin stimulation (should be used with creams), for improving of skin elasticity and for hair growth stimulation.
2.3 Before the usage the working surfaces and skin should be cleaned.
For cleaning use the following order:
- to disinfect the working surfaces of the massage inductors with alcohol (it can be a lotion, a solution of hydrogen peroxide(3%), a solution of boric acid (3%));
- to rub skin with alcohol or the solutions;
- then to use a tissue with a solution of salicylic alcohol (2%) and place it on the massage surface and use the massage cosmetic inducer with it or wrap the working surface of the inducer in it and get the EP massage (excepting eyes and lips). The procedure of massage can be 6 minutes.
2.4 The direction of the massage movements should be used during the skin's cleaning procedure
and the EP cosmetic massage (Fig. 2).
After the cleaning the obsolete cells of the epidermis (corneal layer) are exfoliated
and removed due to this fact the skin is getting smoothing. In the case of the withered skin the papillary
layer is getting more vivid after the EP cosmetic massage. The skin structure is formed, the functioning
of skin glands and the components of protein and fat subcutaneous and microcirculation are increasing.
2.4 The direction of the massage movements should be used during the skin's cleaning procedure and the EP cosmetic massage (Fig. 2).

and dynamic (D2) methods of the cosmetic massage.

3. The method of usage of the "Gefestus" apparatus for the EP cosmetic massage
3.1 The EP cosmetic massage should be started with the feedback sensor installation into
the procedure "control zone" (Fig.2). During the procedure the static or dynamic methods
with feedback can be used for the EP cosmetic massage.
3.2 The static method of treatment.
When the feedback sensor is in "a control zone" S1.The functional condition of the skin at the measuring time will be indicated on the LED scale display. The indication can be observed in "yellow" and "green" areas of the scale. (The discrete analysis shows that if the indicator is in the "green zone", it is a normal skin; if the indicator shifts to the left part of the "yellow" zone, it is a dry skin; if the indicator shifts to the right part of the "yellow" zone, it is a fat skin). The feedback sensor is removed after the functional condition of the skin testing and the resulting value is set by the feedback regulator. Than to set the procedure time and press the button "medical treatment" and get a treatment.
3.3 The dynamic method of treatment (or "tracking mode"). Feedback sensor is in "a control zone" D2. It is used constantly during the procedure (a soft elastic tubular bandage is used for installing the sensor). The indications on the LED display will move on the scale during the procedure. The indications dynamic will point on a skin functional changing under the influence of the EP cosmetic massage.
3.4 The EP cosmetic massage should be used only with a face cream (for body parts massage it should be used with a body cream) or with cosmetic emulsions or masks. In this case, it can be creamed on the working surface of the massage inductor or on the massaged parts of face or body.
3.5The EP cosmetic massage has a two-level system of effect. The first level is after the parameters testing of the feedback. The treatment time will be 12 -24 minutes then to press the button "medical treatment" and get a treatment. The movements of the cosmetic massage inductor should be smooth, slow, without jerks how is recommended in Fig.2. The pleasant low-frequency micro-vibration, light warmth and the strength of the psychophysiology effect from the EP cosmetic massage will be feeling during the treatment.
3.6. The second level is "adaptive fixation" without feedback sensor. The feedback sensor is removed after the timer work (if it worked like in the section 3.3.). The bioregulation level is set at 0.2. The timer is set for 6 minutes then to press the button "medical treatment". The effect parameters are unchanged for the "adaptive fixation". The tracking process is disabled and the functioning of skin and the superficial tissues are preserved on a new level. The length of preservation on this level depends on the quality of the EP cosmetic massage, regardless of the skin type and its sensitivity and etc. The good effect from the EP cosmetic massage is seen at once and it can persist for several days. After the second treatment it can persist longer. The recommended time for the EP cosmetic massage is afternoon.
The EP cosmetic massage is recommended to use with cosmetics which consist of the natural
The special "active" mask is used for loosing neck skin reducing. The "active" mask consists of 1 tbsp. of crushed dill or parsley, 1 tbsp. of crushed sage, 1 tbsp. of lime flowers and a quarter cup of warm vegetable oil (preferably olive).
For rough skin elimination on the elbows, feet and hands, the
EP cosmetic massage can be made with warm olive oil.
For skin pores cleaning, for black spots elimination and for skin nourishing can be used the following masks:
- 10 g. of parsley sap is mixed with 10 g. of cream or milk and it is creamed on the skin and then to get the EP massage.
-1 ripe apple is boiled in milk and then it is mixed and creamed on the skin in a warm state
and then to get the EP massage.
- 10 - 15g of fresh yeast is crushed with milk and it is creamed on the skin and then to get the EP massage.
- 1 tbsp. of cream is crushed with 1 yolk and it is mixed with 1 tsp. of carrot juice and a quarter cup of warm vegetable oil and it is creamed on the skin and then to get the EP massage.
- The whitening mask. 50g. of fresh parsley roots are crushed and mixed with 50 g. of a sour cream. The mask should be creamed on a clean face and can be on the skin 1-2 minutes then to get the EEP massage.
