Do oxygen treatments actually bring such excellent results?
Izabela Rzeszutek, cosmetologist
It is obvious that without oxygen there is no life. The air we breathe contains 21% of oxygen. It is also indispensable in the skin. First of all , it supports cellular metabolism, has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, stimulates proper biochemical processes, supports cellular metabolism, stimulates collagen production and the formation of capillaries (blood vessels).
Unfortunately, as the years go by, cells absorb less and less oxygen. At the same time, the quality and condition of the skin is influenced by a number of unfavorable external factors, such as air pollution, smog, poor diet or working in closed rooms. That is why oxygen is more and more often used in cosmetological procedures.
A treatment with the use of oxygen that is worth paying attention to is oxybrasion. Compressed oxygen and saline are used to cleanse the skin and exfoliate dead epidermis. Oxybrasion is a type of mechanical microdermabrasion, but it works much more gently. Effectively moisturizes and softens the skin, soothes inflammation. The effects of the treatment are visible immediately. The skin is brightened, refreshed and the pores are less visible.
Another treatment that uses oxygen is oxygen infusion. This procedure aims at forcing the appropriate active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin with the use of pressurized oxygen. Therefore, an ampoule appropriate to the needs of the skin is selected for the treatment, e.g. regenerative, lifting, vitamin or regulating the work of sebaceous glands. After the treatment, the skin looks radiant and healthy.
Oxygen treatments restore the skin’s youthful glow and are completely safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
