Oxygen facials fight those 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 for a plumper and smoother look, thus providing a healthy glow.
Every type of skin requires oxygen and anyone can use this kind of facial. Those facing accelerated ageing will enjoy greater benefits when they have one done, however, teenagers can see good results too by performing this therapy. Oxygen facial is beneficial to the ones who suffer from sunburn or wind exposed skin due to its calm effect. People suffering from rosacea can also use oxygen facial.
Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and then exfoliated that ensures 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 will take almost half an hour to one hour for completion.
Oxygen facials are usually performed in every four to six weeks to achieve maximum benefit. Some individuals choose to get them done every week. Those with regular maintenance can see 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 these days. Being a non-medical method, there is no need for injections or using any chemicals and the treatment is 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 for introducing oxygen 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 using any harsh chemical peels as the point is to oxygenate the skin so that it heals quickly.
