Oxygen facials fight visible signs of ageing that are linked to a poor conveyance of oxygen from subcutaneous capillaries to the skin surface. High-pressurised oxygen combined with botanical, mineral, nutrient extracts and vitamin is applied to your neck and face. Oxygen absorbs moisturising agents in the skin, giving you a plumper and smoother look which will make you look younger.
Are there any side effects associated with the treatment?
Oxygen therapy enables you to get back into your normal life immediately without any side effects or the need of healing time.
Every type of skin requires oxygen, meaning that anybody that wants to can perform this procedure. Typically, people who are at a more advanced age will notice a much bigger effect of the facial than teenagers, however, it is suitable for both. Oxygen facials can also be very beneficial to people who are suffering from sunburns or wind exposed skin.
Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and then exfoliated, which ensures that it is completely free from dirt and debris. Pure hyperbaric oxygen is sprayed on the face by using a wand and infused with a serum containing nutrients and antioxidants. There might be slight pressure on your skin with a cooling effect. The method can take from 30 to 60 minutes for full completion.
Oxygen facials are usually performed every four to six weeks to achieve maximum benefit. Some individuals choose to get them done every week. Those with regular maintenance can see the best results with this type of facial. However, performing excess oxygen facial may lead to the release of free radicals that destroy skin cells which causes wrinkles and premature ageing.
Different spas offer oxygen facials. Being a non-medical method, there is no need for injections or using any chemicals, therefore, the treatment can be done by a skin care specialist at the spa. Before starting an oxygen treatment, the skin specialist will at first exfoliate your skin and ensure that it is free from excess oil and dirt.
After mild facial steam and exfoliation, the specialist uses a machine which will applyoxygen directly into the skin pores. The oxygen used is treated with various supplements that are beneficial for the skin such as vitamins to retain skin firmness and smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure involves minimal pain and does not require the use of any harsh chemical peels as the point is to oxygenate the skin so that it heals quickly.
The cells require oxygen to keep you nourished and healthy. Oxygen facial delivers oxygen to the deepest skin layers and makes it glowing. Some of the benefits are:
1. Improves the production of collagen
Collagen is the protein which allows cells to stick together thus, providing elasticity and strength to the skin. The collagen becomes weak with age and thus, wrinkles may begin to appear.
Oxygen facial boosts the collagen production in your skin thereby, making it firm which will reduce the wrinkles and fine lines.
2. Detoxifies your skin
Oxygen facial helps the skin to utilise oxygen along with vitamins and nutrients infused in it. This improves the detoxification process of the skin, negates pollution effects, diet fluctuation, sun exposure and helps in the repair and regeneration of skin cells.
3. Speed up cell turnover
Our skin cells usually die with time and get replaced with new ones. Oxygen is vital for the regeneration of cells. It improves the rate of how new cells develop which helps in scar healing. Besides that, oxygen facials provides an additional dose of oxygen to the skin cells, thus helping cell turnover faster.
4. No side effects
This procedure is gentle on the skin and does not have any side effects such as redness, swelling, irritation, burning sensation and stinging. It is a good option for people with sensitive skin and those who do not use chemical beauty treatments.
5. Moisturize your skin
Continuous exposure to sun, pollution and dust can cause damage to the skin due to natural moisture content. This can make it extremely dry and so, if you have dry skin, it is likely that it will be worse. Oxygen facials will moisturise your skin deeply, restoring the pH balance and protecting it from sun damage.
6. Make skin super radiant
The facial will remove all impurities from the top layer of your skin and boost the oxygen content. It also removes dead skin cells from the top layer, opens clogged pores, and brings out the natural blush on the cheeks.
