Oxygen treatments have emerged in the last few years as the newly recognized skin care essential. From oxygen creams to oxygen spray treatments and oxygen inhalation, most spas and salons across the country have something on their menu oxygen related to offer their client.
One of the most interesting facials to join the spa circuit is probably the oxygen facial. There's nothing new about the body's need for oxygen. It helps the skin breath, the blood flow and improves colour, circulation and the body's natural ability to expel toxins and rejuvenate itself.
Initially, the pores of the skin are opened using a steam solution. This allows the facial to fully penetrate the skin and remove any impurities. Next, a nourishing serum containing glucose, magnesium and potassium is applied to the skin's surface. Once the serum is applied, a facial mask is placed over the skin, and the skin is then diffused with hydrated oxygen. This adds moisture balance and protection for the skin, while allowing the serum to penetrate pores and deeply cleanse the core of the skin.
Once the initial oxygenation is completed, the next phase of the facial involves exfoliating away the dead cells and debris with nourishing and vitamin enriched cleansers. This is then followed by another serum that promotes anti-oxidizing. Depending on the type of treatment you request, the oxygenation process may be repeated and further serums applied to close pores and moisturize the skin.
The procedure involves six weekly treatments followed by monthly facials.
The development of facial systems that utilize oxygen to replenish and nourish the skin, is a brilliant way to keep the face looking young, clear and healthy, without the need of harsh chemicals.
