Oxygen facials always seemed like a fad to me until I tried one about 2 years ago. Woah was I wrong! Oxygen facials are amazing for almost every skin type, and a few of the most common skin care concerns today. Here is a little blurp from the AND Skincare website about oxygen and what happens in an oxygen facial, with my take on the benefits at the end!
Unstable oxygen is known as free radicals, the most common ones are single atoms, which are unstable due to unpaired electrons. Free radicals react readily in a chemical process called OXIDATION. Cell membranes are most vulnerable to this type of damage, to avoid chemical process it needs to be neutralized by antioxidants or trapped by Spin Traps which reverses the dangerous spinning of the free radicals. Skin needs Oxygen to survive, reproduce and regenerate, in younger skin this process is very efficient, but as we age the micro capillaries degenerate the skin doesn’t receive the nourishment it needs. As a result, the metabolism in the skin cells slow down, collagen and elastin content drops, fine lines, discoloration and wrinkles appear, skin aging speeds up.
Sun exposure, air pollution, extreme hot and cold, diet fluctuations, worry and stress, affect the skin conditions. Adding Oxygen Facials results in skin refreshing, skin health, naturally increased metabolic process such as repair and regeneration. The dull skin of a smoker will get a kick, hydration occurs leaving the skin plumped, and if you suffer from acne, oxygen kills acne bacteria too!
This is the perfect facial for almost everyone, especially those looking for firmness, but still get a few breakouts too! Ready to book yours? Give me a call or text. I'll be seeing you soon!
