What Happens During a Session of Medical Oxygen Infusion?
Oxygen is a vital element of our existence that plays a significant role in helping to keep us alive. But it doesn’t only help us to breathe, it allows our body to create anti-oxidants that get rid of toxins from our skin and body to keep us healthy and young. As we get older, oxygen levels in our skin begin to decrease which can contribute to aging factors such as fine lines and wrinkles, especially when living in a polluted city like Toronto.
At Skin Society Bar, we recommend this treatment to anyone who wants to avoid being poked and prodded or applying chemical peels to their face. For those who want to get the best out of their skin with minimal downtime and instant results, an oxygen infusion treatment is the number one choice. Oxygen infusion therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive facial treatment that delivers high-pressurized oxygen along with anti-aging serums to instantly replenish the skin, enhance hydration and boost collagen for a more youthful glow.
Although you may find that the treatment has been endorsed by a number of models or celebrities who are looking for results before they hit the runway or red carpet, it is not just another beauty craze. Oxygen infusion therapy is a powerful skincare procedure that can greatly benefit your skin in many ways including a reduction in acne, skin detoxification and an even skin tone. Many of our patients choose this facial because you can have the perfect skin in 30 minutes with little to no downtime and zero redness. Instead of irritation or peeling that you may experience with other treatments, you will be left with plumper, smoother skin that looks fresh, radiant and healthy. In fact, once the treatment is complete, you can apply fresh makeup to your face and walk into any event without any worry!
How Does an Oxygen Facial Work?
An oxygen infusion treatment may be carried out on any person of any age, skin colour and condition in areas such as the face, neck and chest; however, before we can go ahead with your treatment, we will have a quick consultation to discuss any medications you may be taking and assess the needs of your skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. During this time, we will decide which ingredients to put together in a special serum that will be applied to your skin during the treatment to address any concerns you may have, provide maximum hydration to the area and activate anti-aging effects.
Much like any other facial, your skin will be cleansed and exfoliated to remove any dead skin from the surface. After that, we will use a handheld wand to spray pressurized oxygen onto your face which will seep into your pores to oxygenate the cells. Next, we apply the tailored serum containing hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, arbutin or niacinamide to your face and neck. The oxygen coupled with the serum will nourish the skin, restore your pH balance and repair any damaged skin cells as well as significantly minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase blood circulation and boost collagen for healthier skin.
Once we have sprayed oxygen to your skin and applied your specially designed serum, we will place a clear dome over your face while you relax and soak in the nourishment. A moisturizer will be massaged into your skin to enhance the effectiveness of the oxygen and serum followed by a zinc-based sunscreen for optimal protection.
The entire treatment typically lasts anywhere between 45 and 60 minutes with minimal to no downtime, which means you will be camera ready as soon as you walk out of our clinic. Although the treatment is “non-medical”, it should only be performed by an expert medical aesthetician to avoid any discrepancies and for maximum benefit.
How Often Should You Have Oxygen Infusion?
Following the treatment, your skin will feel hydrated and refreshed without any side effects making it the perfect treatment for an instant glow before a special occasion. If you want the best out of your treatment, it is important that you carefully follow our instructions which include avoiding sun exposure, using sunblock and taking great care of the treated area.
For the best results, we recommend that you have an oxygen facial once a month for up to 6 sessions followed by maintenance treatments every 2 to 3 months. As we continue to treat and evaluate your skin, we may recommend other procedures such as the Collagen Repair treatment to complement the oxygen infusion therapy.
If you are looking for soft, radiant and alluring skin before a special event or would rather avoid an invasive treatment for a youthful glow, an oxygen infusion treatment is perfect for you. Book a consultation for instant results with Skin Society Bar today!
