Oxygen Facial Benefits 

Have you ever seen an award show on TV and envied the stars’ skin? People used to think this dewy look could only be achieved with an over-complicated skin regime, but as more celebrities, such as Madonna, are sharing their beauty secrets, we have discovered that their go-to treatment for a red carpet event is an oxygen facial.

What is an Oxygen Facial?

Oxygen infusion facials are the new buzzword in the medi-spa industry, but they may sound a little bit strange. Why would we need oxygen in our faces if we are surrounded by it? Well, oxygen is one of the main components in our atmosphere but oxygen concentration levels around us aren’t that high. If your skin is looking tired or dehydrated, an oxygen facial treatment will do wonders for your complexion.

First, you will get a deep cleaning or exfoliation to ensure your skin is clean and ready for your treatment. Then, the board-certified cosmetic dermatologist will use a wand-like device to spray high levels of oxygen onto your face. Once your skin is hydrated and infused with oxygen, a nutrient-rich serum is applied. This will serve as a hydration booster. If your skin needs it, blackheads and other imperfections can be eliminated at this stage. To finish up the process, you will receive a massage to ensure all the oxygen facial benefits are locked in.

What are the benefits of an oxygen facial?

Oxygen facial treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that offers multiple benefits and the best part is that there is no downtime and all skin types can enjoy them. Think of oxygen infusion facials as a cheat sheet to a super hydrated and nurtured skin. Thanks to the high levels of oxygen directed to the epidermis, the benefits of the substance penetrate deep into the skin, leaving it hydrated from within. Additionally, the serum used has various substances, such as peptides and collagen, to boost your skin’s natural radiance. After just one relaxing session, your skin will feel luxurious and ready for anything!

Who should get an oxygen facial?

The simple answer is everybody! An oxygen facial benefits both young and older women. Since they focus on hydration and nutrients, women of all ages can benefit from an oxygen facial treatment.

If you live in a big city or urban area, chances are you are not getting enough nutrients because your pores are clogged, so a deep infusion of oxygen will revitalize your complexion and clean up your pores. If you are starting to get wrinkles and fine lines, or want to prevent their appearance, oxygen facials will help you smooth these expression lines while unifying the skin’s color.Additionally, women who have a special event coming up, love getting an oxygen infusion facial because their skin looks plumper and more hydrated immediately.

How long does an oxygen facial last?

Oxygen facial results are immediate. As soon as you leave the room, your skin will look and feel plumper and more hydrated. The sought-after dewy look will be yours. You can expect the results of an oxygen facial treatment to last for around seven to ten days. However, the oxygen facial benefits continue far long after you leave the doctor’s office. Since it is an accumulative treatment, the more facials you get, the better your skin responds. To achieve your goals, it is recommended to get a facial every week or two weeks six months.
