Have you heard of the oxygen facial? The oxygen facial is an advanced new facial that’s been celebrated by many famous figures, such as pop icon Madonna and model Ashley Graham. Fans of this facial say that it gives them smoother, plumper, and more glowing skin. But what exactly is an oxygen facial? How does it work and what are its benefits? Read on to learn everything you need to know about getting glowing skin with the oxygen facial!
What is an Oxygen Facial?
An oxygen facial is a high tech facial that nourishes the skin, cleanses the skin, and promotes collagen growth, helping you look smoother, younger, and more hydrated. This facial involves the use of a specialized machine that sprays highly concentrated oxygen molecules into the epidermis (the outer layer or skin). This facial also includes the use of an advanced serum that infuses vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and essential nutrients into the skin.
What are the Benefits of the Oxygen Facial?
The oxygen facial is an excellent facial for anyone who wants smoother, fresher, more radiant-looking skin. The specialized oxygen application and unique serum blend used in this facial provide many benefits, which we’ll outline below!
Boosts Collagen Production: Collagen is a protein that helps the skin look firm, smooth, and elastic. As we age, the collagen in our skin naturally diminishes, which causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear. But there are treatments that can boost the skin’s collagen production, helping the skin look firmer and smoother, including the oxygen facial.
Detoxifies the Skin: The nutrients and vitamins used in the oxygen facial work to boost the detoxification process of the skin, which helps the body repair and regenerate its own skin cells.
Promotes Faster Cell Turnover: The body regularly replaces old skin cells with new ones. To do this, the body needs oxygen to regenerate. When oxygen is applied to the skin during an oxygen facial, it adds an extra boost of oxygen to the skin cells, helping them turnover more quickly. Faster cell turnover allows the skin to heal more quickly (helping to improve issues like scarring) and look more radiant.
Moisturizes: The oxygen facial provides deep moisture to the skin, which can help you look more radiant, glowing, and youthful.
Promotes Radiance: The oxygen facial removes impurities and dead skin cells from the epidermis, helping your skin look clearer and more radiant.
Treats Uneven Skin Tone: The potent serum used in the oxygen facial contains peptides, vitamins, and botanicals, all of which work to treat uneven skin tone.
Calms Acne: Oxygen is known to accelerate wound healing and kill certain types of bacteria. So when oxygen is applied to the skin during an oxygen facial, it can help to calm acne and kill bacteria that causes acne.
What is Getting an Oxygen Facial Like?
The oxygen facial is a calming, relaxing four step facial. First, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. Then, a wand that infuses oxygen into the skin is applied to the skin. Next, a serum blend containing tightening and hydrating ingredients is applied to your skin. This serum contains hyaluronic acid, minerals, vitamins, and plenty of antioxidants. Finally, your skin will be massaged with oxygen-infused lotions and creams that nourish the skin and seal in the other treatments. After getting an oxygen facial, you’ll see immediate results from the treatment.
Is the Oxygen Facial Gentle Enough for Sensitive Skin?
Though the oxygen facial provides thorough results, it’s not at all harsh. The oxygen facial is an exceptionally gentle facial that is great even for those with sensitive skin. This facial is an excellent option for those who want to rejuvenate, purify, and smooth their skin, yet also do not want to try any harsher chemical treatments. It’s also a great facial to get right before an important event, since there is no skin irritation after an oxygen facial.
