Oxygen; one of the most beneficial elements on this planet. Really, without it, there is no life. Our entire bodies thrive on clean supplies of oxygen and our skin, being our largest organ, is no exception. Delivering oxygen straight into the skin’s pores, oxygen facials are the newest treatment praised by both celebrities and everyday people alike. But what is an oxygen facial and do they really work? At Smooth Synergy, New York City’s favorite cosmedical spa, we continue to be impressed by this this facial technique that continues to grow in popularity, breathing new life into the non-invasive cosmetic procedure industry.
How it Works
Boosted with a personalized mix of moisturizers and vitamins, pressurized oxygen is “pumped” into facial skin pores, through use of non-invasive machinery and without the use of injections or chemicals. Oxygenating the skin helps cells to carry out metabolic functions, encourages collagen production and keeps it moisturized.
What to Expect
Your cosmedical spa staff member will first consult with you regarding your particular skin type, problems and expected results. The skin care specialist will then clean and exfoliate your skin to ensure full and proper exposure to the oxygen treatment. After cleansing and a mild steam, serum-supplemented oxygen is delivered into the pores with a specialized pen-like machine. You should feel no pain during the procedure.
The Benefits of Oxygen Facials
Most people report smoother,clearer, more radiant skin with less visible pores and blemishes. With little to no side effects, an oxygen facial is recommended for those that are sensitive to harsher treatments like chemical peels or Botox® injections.
