Oxygen is one of the most vital elements in the world. Without it, we will die. With it, we are happy, healthy, and full of vigor and vitality.
Did you know it can do the same for your skin?
It’s true — without enough oxygen, your skin will become dull, saggy, and dry. At Skin Med Spa in Downers Grove, Illinois, we offer an oxygen facial called the OxyGeneo facial that is designed to resurface and revitalize your skin, so you can look younger than ever.
Here’s how it works.
An OxyGeneo facial is a special facial that accomplishes three things at once: It will exfoliate, oxygenate, and infuse your skin with revitalizing nutrients to give it a long-lasting glow. It’s different from other oxygen facials because it oxygenates your skin naturally from the inside, rather than pushing oxygen into your skin from the outside.
First, your provider will gently exfoliate your upper layer of skin. This process will unclog your pores, get rid of dead skin cells, and smooth out the surface of your skin. During this part of the treatment, an abundance of carbon dioxide bubbles will permeate the upper layer of your skin. This will trigger a physiological response in your body called the “Bohr Effect.”
When the Bohr Effect kicks in, your body will send oxygen-rich blood to the skin to replace the carbon dioxide that has accumulated there. This raised oxygen level increases the vitality of your skin and helps the results of the facial to be more noticeable and last longer.
Finally, your skin will also be infused with nutrients and vitamins that will nourish the skin. The overall effect will plump and brighten your skin, reduce the size of your pores, and improve your skin texture. You’ll have a noticeably healthy glow and smoother complexion.
You should notice immediate anti-aging effects on your skin, and your youthful glow will continue to radiate throughout the week. The results can even be enhanced with ultrasound energy to penetrate more deeply into your skin.
This is a noninvasive treatment. There’s no downtime afterward, and the session itself is quick and painless.
