All You Need To Know About Oxygen Facials
Oxygen facials involve the use of a machine which sprays atomized moisturizers onto your skin using a pressurized stream of oxygen. The treatment is purported to instantly hydrate the skin, making the fact appear plumper and smoother.
The facial delivers a mixture of hyperbaric oxygen and anti-aging serum through an airbrush at high pressure using an airbrush of some sort. It is almost like someone using a tiny power washer to pump moisturizer and oxygen into the skin. A majority of the people who use this facial approach claim that the process helps make makeup application simpler since it gives the skin a moisturized and smooth surface. With this option, makeup can be applied immediately after, as opposed to standard facials which usually require a 12-hour wait before you can apply makeup.
An Australian company developed the oxygen facial technology, and its popularity skyrocketed in the US in 2006 after reports that Madonna was a huge fan of the procedure that she had an oxygen facial machine in each of her homes.
While a majority of doctors say that the effectiveness of oxygen facials hasn’t yet been proven since the procedure lacks any substantial clinical studies, those who offer the treatment claim that the procedure can force moisturizers and oxygen into the skin for temporary improvements.
According to oxygen facial experts, the procedure combats visible aging sign linked to inadequate delivery of oxygen to the skin’s surface from the subcutaneous capillaries. The procedure addresses this insufficiency by delivering highly-concentrated molecules of oxygen directly on to the epidermis. When the stream of highly-pressurized oxygen, imbued with nutrient, mineral, vitamin and botanical extracts, is applied on to the skin, the oxygen helps absorb the essential moisturizing agents into the patient’s skin for a plumper, smoother look, and a healthier glow. Oxygen infusions may include brightening, antibacterial, green tea, collagen, and Vitamin C.
Before treatment, the client’s skin is exfoliated and cleansed to rid it of any surface impurities and dirt. Once clean, some oxygen facial service providers will use a pressurized oxygen bubble to infuse atomized moisturizers into the deepest layers of the patient’s skin. Since the molecules are tiny and are introduced to the skin using high pressure, the serum is able to penetrate the skin easily. The next step will usually involve a higher weight serum that reaches the top and middle layers of the skin for deeper hydration.
Depending on your skin type and needs, a blend of botanical extracts, peptides, and antioxidants can be added to the moisturizing infusion. Natural skin brighteners such as Vitamin C and Alpha-Arbutin are great for hyper-pigmented skin while inflammation-fighters such as Yellow Dock are great for reducing redness. A complete oxygen facial will take anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes, making the procedure an ideal pick-me-up treatment that can be done even during your lunch hour.
Types of Treatment
There are four basic treatments that patients will receive depending on their skin’s needs and the ingredients in their treatment serums. These are:
1. Rejuvenate: This treatment option is for those looking to moisturize their skin, as well as address any wrinkles and lines appearing on their skin. People of all skin types can benefit from a rejuvenation treatment and should notice tighter and firmer skin after treatment.
2. Opulence: This treatment is for those patients with uneven skin pigmentation and tone, and are looking to brighten up their skin.
3. Clarity: A Clarity oxygen facial is helpful to those with skin moisture issues. It is also an excellent treatment option for those experiencing an acne outbreak.
4. Atoxelene: Considered a non-invasive Botox alternative, Atoxelene can be added onto opulence and rejuvenation oxygen facials to help soften up expression line and firm them up a bit. Atoxelene also helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles, especially near the eyes, mouth and around the forehead and to contour the eyes.
The Benefits Of Oxygen Facials
Oxygen facials promote collagen production. The infusion of vitamins and oxygen into the skin promotes the production of collage, which, in turn, helps restore firmness and volume to skin that’s lost its elasticity and plumps up facial features.
The procedure also helps detox the skin. Everyday toxins such as cigarette smoke rob our skin of the oxygen it so direly needs. Oxygen facials help reverse the effects environmental pollutants have on the skin and help rejuvenate it.
The oxygen facial procedure has no side effects. Unlike most invasive anti-aging treatment like microdermabrasion and Botox, oxygen facials do not cause or have any uncomfortable side effects like redness, burning, or stinging. The serum and oxygen delivery process are quite gentle, making the procedure ideal for individuals with sensitive skins and those who’d rather avoid chemical treatments or injections. The great thing with oxygen facials is that you can resume your normal activities immediately after an appointment. Furthermore, you can apply your makeup and use your normal facial products immediately after.
After your oxygen facial appointment, you can expect to see a more rejuvenated and refreshed complexion – leaving you looking well-rested with an ‘I’m-just-back-from-vacation’ glow.
