Oxygen Therapy is far more than just a simple facial. The combination of a HIGH GRADE oxygen under pressure, combined with modified hyaluronic acid (water loving) skin serums, creates a visible rejuvenation result you can instantly see and feel. This is a true Instant Gratification Treatment. Oxygen makes up between 18- 21% of the atmosphere and is required to sustain life at a cellular level. Additionally, the application of pressurized oxygen increases the absorption of topical “infusions” which helps the skin retain hydration and moisture. Once hydration is balanced – the skin immediately looks and feels years younger. Your complexion will glow. Your skin will feel healthier, plumped, vibrant and taut. There is no downtime and Oxygen Therapy is ideal for all skin types.
Why is oxygen used topically?
Oxygen is a natural bactericide (banishes anaerobic bacteria) and it helps cool and calm the skin’s surface. It’s an ideal seasonal pick-me-up for the skin. Use of oxygen under pressure (in skin care), is designed to enhance the delivery of therapeutic vitamins and serums.
What skin conditions can benefit from an OXYGEN infusion?
Oxygen therapy is ideal for sensitive skin, sun damage, brown spots, skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, post inflammatory pigmentation and problem prone skin conditions like Acne or Rosacea.
How does it work?
The most common misconception about oxygen is that it can penetrate intact skin. Oxygen is a gas and cannot penetrate the human body from the atmosphere, even when sprayed directly on the skin. Infused oxygen (Oxygen facials or treatments) work only when applied to skin that has been properly prepared so it can bypass the top layer of intact skin. Your Clinical Technician will prepare the skin by softening or exfoliating the epidermis prior to an oxygen treatment.. A pressurized air brush then helps move the oxygen and the serums into the deeper layers below. Oxygen is designed to “carry” nutritional or rejuvenation supplements into the skin. Infusions help to increase the skin’s moisture levels and target dry, dehydrated and prematurely aging skin cells.
How is oxygen applied to the skin?
When the tip of the Oxygen Infuser is held at a 90 degree angle, (1mm or less) from the skin’s surface, an oxygen “pressure bubble” is formed to assist in pushing the infusions we use into the deeper layers of the skin.
What does Infusion mean?
Infusion refers to the process of applying hydrophilic (water loving) serums containing Hyaluronic Acid technology into the skin for maximum absorption.
How Often Should I Have An Oxygen Treatment? Oxygen Therapy may be used weekly or monthly to restore, rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. May also be combined with other skin benefit services to boost your results. Ideal combinations include FUSION treatments combing Radio Frequency, Micro-current, Ultrasonic Deep Pore Cleansing and LED Healing Light Therapy.
The Nouveau clinic uses hydrophilic (water loving) serums with Hyaluronic Acid technology in our Oxygen Therapies, and in combination with other skin care treatments and products to support healthy, natural skin rejuvenation.
