Oxygen is in the air all around you. You breathe it day in and day out. Your skin is always surrounded by and touching oxygen. So, what is an oxygen facial? Why is it so special? And is it right for you?
While it’s true that you’re constantly exposed to oxygen, the air around you is actually comprised of a number of different gasses. In fact, air is mostly nitrogen, not oxygen! An oxygen facial harnesses the power of oxygen gas at a higher rate than is present in the environment at large, allowing you to experience its benefits.
What Are the Benefits of an Oxygen Facial?
Oxygen is a bactericide, meaning that, in high doses, it kills bacteria. Bacteria on the face can cause problems like blemishes and acne. Rather than using strong acids that may increase your facial sensitivity over time, oxygen can be harnessed to kill bacteria on your face, promoting smoother and clearer skin. This also results in an increased ability to absorb nutrients. During your facial, our specialist will apply a serum that contains nutrients and vitamins that your skin needs to truly glow. Thanks to the high volume of oxygen, your skin will be primed to absorb more of the serum than if the serum was applied without the oxygen treatment. After your appointment, your skin will immediately look more radiant, youthful and glowing than ever before.
Who Benefits from an Oxygen Facial?
Anyone can benefit from an Intraceuticals oxygen facial, but it is of special use to people who are concerned with signs of aging. One of the prime benefits of an oxygen facial is the way in which it can improve your skin’s ability to absorb nutrients. As you age, your skin naturally loses hyaluronic acid, a compound that aids in retaining moisture and making the skin appear elastic and youthful. An oxygen facial includes an application of a hyaluronic acid treatment, which will dramatically reduce visible signs of aging and make your skin look youthful and bright.
Oxygen facials are extremely relaxing, making them a perfect treatment to counteract a busy schedule and damaged skin. You’ll leave your appointment feeling – and looking – refreshed and rejuvenated.
