Oxygen has a unique effect on the skin because it opens up our pores, increasing their absorption power. After being exposed to oxygen, the skin starts breathing again and all treatments and products applied thereafter produce even better results. In other words, oxygen is an essential part of rejuvenating your appearance and eliminating unattractive imperfections.
We consider an Oxygen facial as equivalent to a Hydrafacial only better. With oxygen you are not just hydrating the skin but also clearing the dead skin cells and congestion that cause breakouts and dullness as well as dehydration. I like to call an oxygen facial the WOW Factor facial as it will immediately have you saying “Wow”!
Our team of skincare specialists at Advanced Skin Therapy of Smokey Point can perform oxygen facials that help improve the appearance of dull skin, remove fine lines, eliminate wrinkles, and clear acne. This gives your skin a glowing, plump, and youthful texture almost immediately, without the need necessarily for complex procedures.
Oxygen facials don’t take a long time, but they produce visible results from the very first session. Depending on your goals, you may need more than one session to get the results you want, but you should notice a significant improvement in your appearance with each facial.
Oxygen gives life to every cell in our body. It’s directly responsible for transforming food into energy through a process called oxidation. In addition to this, it also plays an essential role in optimal cell function and the prevention of disease.
From a cosmetic perspective, oxygen levels in the skin start declining after age 25. In other words, low oxygen levels translate to older, duller skin.
By the time we hit age 40, about 50% of our skin has lost the ability to absorb and retain oxygen. When the cells in our bodies suffer from oxygen deprivation, it can result in blood vessel constriction and the impairment of the skin’s ability to function.
Dry, aging skin doesn’t respond the same to your usual makeup or skincare products, and it can add years to your appearance. Hormonal changes, large amounts of stress and lack of sleep are just some of the factors that can contribute to the appearance of aging skin. In addition, unhealthy diets and environmental pollutants can make this worse, resulting in unattractive skin.
Oxygen facials are becoming a must in the world of cosmetic procedures because they deliver results from the very first treatment. Some of the benefits of oxygen therapy include, but are not limited to:
Oxygen facials are applied in a variety of ways including domes, wands and jets. Each session takes approximately 60 minutes. Pure oxygen is applied to your face and followed up by a powerful blend of proven ingredients specifically tailored for your skin.
This type of oxygen therapy is suitable for men and women of all skin types. It can help reduce facial wrinkles, fine lines, dryness, and eliminate acne. Oxygen facial costs can vary from location to location, but on average they cost approximately $120 per session.
