What's OXYGEN FACIAL THERAPY
Oxygen Facial Therapy is a non-invasive advanced dermal therapy treatment that aims to increase cellular activity by delivering pure oxygen into the skins cells. Much like our body requires oxygen to survive and thrive so do our cells. By increasing the oxygen available to the skins cells we can effectively increase cellular respiration, speeding up cell turnover and cellular activity, so that our skins cells are working harder and more effectively. Oxygen facial therapy is delivered as a cool soothing blast of pure oxygen to the skin from the treatment wand with most clients find it very relaxing. This increases circulation and a cells ability to use nutrients, shed dead cells, detoxify the tissue and lay down new skin cells. It is perfect for rehydrating the skin, boosting collagen production, and detoxifying the tissue so as to leave a cleaner, plumper, fresher and more even dewy looking complexion... and the results are immediate, with most clients noticing a difference after just one treatment. Long term results can be seen in the form of a thicker dermis through the stimulation and proliferation of fibroblasts, that lay down more collagen giving a firmer and smoother appearance to the skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
The recovery time is also very fast, if not non-existent. Slight erythema (redness) may last a couple of hours post-treatment, however that is generally caused by the active ingredients in the serum rather than the procedure itself. Oxygen facial therapy is a true lunch hour procedure, as this non-invasive, non-heat causing treatment, doesn't even require a break from your day to day skincare routine in order to have it carried out.
This advanced dermal procedure is pain-free and is suitable for all skin as it uses enriching oxygen to deeply nourish the skin and kick start the bodies natural ability to self-heal and detoxify. Oxygen Therapy is an intensive anti-aging and regenerative skin treatment that uses the latest in skin rejuvenating technology to deliver proven histologically younger, thicker, plumper looking skin.
The procedure is often paired with other advanced resurfacing treatments, such as laser resurfacing, skin needling or microdermabrasion, as the increased bioavailability of oxygen within the tissue increases the uptake of active serums and helps kick start the bodies innate ability to self-heal.

Benefits of Oxygen Therapy:
Oxygen facial therapy boosts the oxygen content of the skins cells. Oxygen is used in cellular respiration and helps cells to extract the energy they need from the food we eat. An increase in cellular respiration means our cells can perform more efficiently as they have more energy.
Oxygen facial therapy promotes the proliferation of fibroblasts that lay down collagen and elastin fibres; normalising dysfunction, thickening the skin, increasing elasticity and helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles by creating new skin cells.
Oxygen Therapy restores moisture in the skin by increasing cellular respiration and in turn increasing circulation. The more nutrients passing by the cells means the more a cell can take up these nutrients for the betterment of ours cells health.
The use of active serums in conjunction with oxygen therapy can also increase the availability and uptake of nutrients into the skin cells. Helping to improve texture, tone and complexion.
The chemical exfoliation from the pre-treatment cleanser, and subsequent oxygen facial treatment, help break down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, reducing skin congestion by clearing cellular debris from pores, whilst also increasing cellular respiration and the cells detoxifying capabilities. Leaving the skin looking brighter and felling luxuriously softer.
Breaks the bonds between dead skin cells, revitalising dull, dehydrated and ageing skin
Desquamation of skin cells via exfoliation reduces pigmentation within the skin, resulting in a brighter more even complexion
Increased ability to heal tissue due an increase in oxygen available to the cells
Increased ability to detoxify the cells due to an increase in oxygen available to the cells
Improved blood flow and lymph circulation leads to stronger blood vessels, better nutrient absorption and improved over-all skin health
What to expect from Oxygen Facial Therapy:
This is a non-invasive procedure that is pain-free and has next to no down-time. It can be carried out on all skin types
The use of an AHA for two weeks leading up to the treatment can increase its efficacy
Oxygen facial therapy is a gentle facial rejuvenation skin treatment carried out in a medi-spa setting on a salon treatment table
Firstly, a deep cleanse will be carried out to ensure the skin is free of oil, debris and ready for the treatment
An alcohol swab is passed over the cleansed face to kill bacteria and help minimise the risk of infection
The Oxygen facial therapy treatment will then begin. The technician will hold the skin while systematically passing the oxygen infusing handle over the face.
The procedure itself is very gentle and feels quite relaxing. A wet sensation my be experienced from the active infusion that accompanies the treatment.
A nourishing vitamin B serum is applied at the end of the treatment to help soothe the skin. Vitamin B is a powerful nutrient that plays an important role in mitochondrial energy metabolism within the cell, helping to improve cellular function and repair. It is also beneficial for barrier function as it boosts the production of the cells outer membrane.
A broad spectrum SPF is then applied to help protect the damaged skin from UV radiation and the possibility of a pigmentary response. SPF should be worn at all times, especially for the first week post treatment as the barrier function is impaired.
There is an immediate softening and brightening effect that is noticeable straight after the treatment.
There is a chance of redness and sensitivity post treatment due to the active ingredients, however, it usually passes within an hour
For best results the patient should be treated every 2 - 4 weeks for 4 - 6 treatments, depending on the condition of the skin
