What is OxyGeneo™?
OxyGeneo™ facials are a great way to revitalize your skin and restore moisture, youthfulness, skin tone and texture. Over time, our skin can become sallow, dry, sagging, and uneven from environmental damage and oxidative degradation as well as toxins and pollutants.
Oxygenating facials are a great treatment to have a few days before a big event, trip, or wedding! The treatment draws oxygen to the surface of the skin, giving you a rosy glow and an even skin tone and texture. The immediate benefits of oxygenated facials have made them very popular among celebrities.
How Do Oxygenated Facials Work?
Oxygenated facials are the ultimate in hydration treatments, which is why they are best recommended for immediate results. However, as they do not alter the skin at the cellular level, they are considered an esthetic and not medical spa treatment.
They work by hydrating the skin using a combination of atomized oxygen and serums. Depending on your goals and skin type, your technician will apply a combination of carefully selected serums, that could include hyaluronic acid, botanicals or peptides, followed by high-pressurized oxygen that helps the products penetrate your skin.
First your technician will cleanse and exfoliate your skin and determine what your skin type is. Once the serums, or products are applied, the technician will use a small machine that looks almost like an air pump that delivers 90 to 95 percent pure oxygen under hyperbaric pressure.
The treatment feels like a blast of cold air, but you should not experience any discomfort. The entire process take 30-60 minutes.
What Are the Results?
Oxygenated facials are a great way to plump and smooth the skin with immediate results. The pressurized oxygen helps to deliver the serums and products deep in your skin where they can deliver the best results. Oxygen is also a natural antibiotic, which helps to cleanse the skin and, if you suffer from breakouts, will help kill any acne-causing bacteria.
The most important of these being the hyaluronic acid; which helps attract and bind moisture, thereby making the skin appear more youthful and supple.
