When you need a little bit of a pick me up for your face, the “go to treatment” has always been microdermbrasion. It gives you the desired exfoliation for the glow you need. But what about if you want more than just a glow, you need to treat acne or hyper pigmentation?
The basic microdermbrasion may require multiple treatments before seeing the results you want. The all depends on the patient and what the desired result is.
A new treatment called OxygeneO assists in providing skin nourishment and oxygenation to give deep skin rejuvenation infused with essential nutrients, which helps to give your skin a youthful glow, revitalizes dull skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, firms skin, and tighten pores.
First we prep the skin by cleaning with gentle cleansers then the exfoliation begins. For the exfoliation part of the treatment, the hand piece is fitted with a “Capsugen” capsule on the end, which is a soft exfoliating head made of sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and magnesium.
This exfoliates the upper skin layer to remove dead cells, smooth and renew the skin, preparing it for infusion of active ingredients for rejuvenation and anti-aging or for skin brightening and texture improvement.
The OxyGeneO effect produces CO2 bubbles, which gently burst on the skin surface creating a physiological response, sending oxygen-rich blood to the area. The effect triggers a natural mechanism in the body. The hemoglobin carries the oxygen to the skin's surface where the C02 concentration is high. This increases the levels of O2 resulting in increased skin absorption of active ingredients This also increases capillary flow and skin metabolism. Oxygenation results in optimal absorption of active ingredients.
The treatment takes from 30-40 minutes. It is a true lunch-time facial. There is no downtime, no precautions, or post care. In some, skin might look mildly red but that fades away fast. You see the results immediately, skin looks radiant and feels refreshed. It is safe to use on all skin types and can be treated on sensitive skin without any irritation.
Treatment can be safely done on a weekly basis. It is also great after microneedling, chemical peels, and fractional treatments. The OxygeneO aids in removing the dead skin cell that have come to the surface due to these treatments, making it like a finishing touch.
