Many of us are always looking for new and better ways to take care of our skin. Dermatologists and skin care companies are still learning new things about our skin and what can benefit it. This research has led to breakthroughs such as injecting the face with oxygen. These treatments reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve circulation, and boost collagen production. But what is it? do you know? Let’s dive into this new technology.
Oxygen facial treatment
How is it done?
The oxygen infusion procedure is performed by a beautician. The procedures are non-medical, which means no chemicals are used, and nothing is injected. These facials work by using the body’s need for oxygen. The theory behind it is that the skin cells are completely oxidized with the oxygen of the face and they will appear brighter and healthier.
The procedure begins with exfoliation. Each spa is different but usually uses a wand to spray a stream of pressurized oxygen onto the face. Next, the esthetician applies a serum (usually containing hyaluronic acid) to the skin using a special wand after the oxygen step.
The length of time used to complete a face varies, but usually averages between 30 minutes and an hour. No recovery time is necessary after the facial is completed. You can even apply makeup when you’re done if you like.
Benefits of injecting oxygen to the face with
double radiance:Some believe that the primary benefit of oxygen facials is that they help pores absorb hyaluronic acid and other beneficial serum ingredients more easily.
Moisturizing the skin: Oxygen helps pump serums into the skin – an oxygen wand is like a small tube that adds ingredients – so your skin looks and feels super hydrated.
Less acne : Oxygen speeds up wound healing and may also kill some bacteria. For these reasons, oxygen facials can calm acne and kill Propionibacterium acnes that cause some types of acne.
Even skin tone: Oxygen facials may provide a large amount of vitamins or botanical ingredients to your skin, giving you a radiant and glowing complexion.
Reduce fine lines: Oxygen facials can help improve facial blood circulation, which helps the skin look bright and plump.
How often should you get facial oxygen injections?
Dermatologists recommend facial treatments once a month. But oxygen facials exfoliate less than regular facials. Thus, it would be helpful to ask an esthetician or dermatologist to determine the best schedule for you to follow.
