It helps nourish the skin and promote collagen production making the skin look healthy and glowing. Here’s everything you need to know about this facial therapy.
What is oxygen facial?
Oxygen facial involves using a machine that applies pure and pressurised oxygen right into the epidermal layer of the skin. This oxygen is infused with minerals, vitamins, essential nutrients and botanical extracts to replenish and renew skin cells and leave you with plump and radiant skin. It also increases the production of collagen, which can give you healthier and younger-looking skin. No wonder celebrities including Madonna, swear by this facial therapy.
Benefits of oxygen facials
- Hydrates skin
This facial will supply oxygen to your skin at the deepest level making it look fresh, plump and glowing from within. It helps those with serious skin dryness conditions such as eczema.
- Reduces signs of ageing
The highly concentrated molecules of oxygen promote collagen production in the epidermis of the skin. Increased collagen levels reduce signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and expression lines.
- Treats many skin concerns
Other than supplying oxygen, this facial also detoxifies the skin by eliminating toxins that have built over time due to exposure to smoke, pollution, dirt and dust. Since this facial also helps with cell turnover, acne scars tend to fade and skin appears more even-toned.
- It is safe
It does not involve chemicals, needles, or anything that might irritate your skin later as is the case with most skin treatments. It is suitable for all skin types and has no side effects whatsoever.
Types of oxygen facials
Oxygen facials are available in various types depending on your skin concern. Vitamin C will even out skin tone and repair the damage caused by UV rays. Vitamin A works well for acne-prone/oily skin by restoring the natural sebum and healing acne.
