The Oxygen Facial is one of the latest in the beauty and skincare industry, endorsed by A-list celebrities such as Madonna, Donatella Versace, Gwen Stefani, Olivia Coleman and many others. Rumour has it that Kim Kardashian, Justin Timberlake, and Victoria Beckham even own oxygen machines in their homes.
The Oxygen Facial was created by an Australian company that aims to reverse dry, damaged and aging skin by oxygenating and hydrating it. It is a nonsurgical and nonmedical procedure so no chemicals or medicines will be injected into the body.
How do Oxygen Facials work?
Oxygen is essential for us to breathe and live. It is also needed by our cells to repair damaged cells and to regenerate. During the treatment, a machine will deliver high concentrated oxygen molecules to the face and neck to fight off visible signs of aging associated with the poor conveyance of oxygen on the skin. This high oxygen concentration is also infused with vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and other antibacterial components, stimulating collagen production and improving blood circulation in the skin; thus, providing you a smoother, younger, and healthier skin.
Oxygen facials are perfect for those who will attend a big day or a special occasion the day after. The glowing effect will be enjoyed for up to a whole week too. For longer glowing and youthful results, aestheticians recommend weekly treatment for six weeks for the beginning.
How do Oxygen Facials benefit you?
Generally, people get oxygen facial treatment for cosmetic purposes. However, oxygen facials offer many benefits including:
- Improve collagen production in the skin
Collagen is a protein that is responsible for making your cells stick together. However, as we age, our skin’s collagen wears out, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Oxygen facials will stimulate the skin to produce more collagen; thus, giving your skin additional elasticity and firmness.
- Cleanse the skin
The nutrients, vitamins, and minerals infused on the high concentration of oxygen will target the toxins and impurities in the skin. Any negative elements present in the skin caused by pollution, prolonged sun exposure, and poor diet will be cleansed. Thus, giving the skin a healthier glow.
- Hydrates the skin
Another infusion added during oxygen facial is the serum. The serum contains hyaluronic acid which plays a very important role in attracting hydration into the skin. When the highly pressurized oxygen delivers the serum onto the skin you’ll notice instant hydration and a brighter look.
- Treats acne and uneven skin tone
One important benefit offered by oxygen is that it allows for cell regeneration and fights off bacteria. Skin issues such as acne and zits will be managed with oxygen facials.
- Boosts cell regeneration
Our skin cells don’t last a lifetime. Cells normally die. But they will also be replaced with newer cells through cell regeneration. Oxygen facials will boost the production of new cells; thus, helping treat acne and scarring.
