Oxygen Facial

My last treatment at Beauti Instinct, i tried the new machine Aunty R just brought in! Did a Crystal Peel (exfoliating of skin) and followed by the Oxygen Facial! Really understand why Madonna recommended it on her Web site and in an interview with Harper's Bazaar! It is a really good treatment for your skin!

Many celebrities are doing the treatment because it temporarily diminishes all the tiny imperfections that would otherwise be visible on high-definition TV.

Here's a video i found of the treatment:

What it is
An oxygen facial is basically a high-pressure blast of oxygen that feeds serums packed with vitamins, minerals and collagen into your skin. The result is a clearer, plumper smoother face and a younger looking you. An immediate change in appearance is common. In fact, it’s been described as the equivalent of two weeks in the Swiss Alps in an hour and a half.

What it does
Oxygen levels in the skin diminish considerably with age, smoking and exposure to air pollution. Some claim the oxygen levels reaching your facial tissues via natural blood micro-circulation can drop by as much as 70% by the time you’re just 30. In other words, the less oxygen in your skin - or to be precise, in the epidermis, the top layer of skin - the more visible fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

An oxygen facial works by super-charging oxygen levels in the skin, resulting in better circulation and skin cell regeneration which, between them, leave the skin glowing. It’s good for making you look younger, reducing greyness, rosacea, healing bruising, and general wear and tear. A purifier, oxygen also kills surface bacteria which helps to keep skin clear.

How you feel
An oxygen facial is not a relaxing experience. Most oxygen facials begin with ten minutes or so of exfoliation or microdermabrasion (where the top layer of the skin is taken away to expose the younger, smoother skin beneath). The therapist will work with a nozzle that puffs chilly oxygen into the skin, pushing in a nourishing serum as it goes within. You’re then allowed to relax with a pampering face mask before emerging (all being well) looking as if you’ve just spent a month in the Great Outdoors.

Virtually anyone can have an oxygen facial without risk. A non-surgical treatment, it is recommended to people with acne-prone or scarred skin. If you have a skin allergy or condition, make sure you tell your therapist about them. If at any time you feel uncomfortable, or you feel your skin becoming very sensitive, speak up.

There's also another treatment which is - Oxygen Inhalation.

The treatment i did before the Oxygen Facial was Crystal Peel Therapy.

Crystal peeling is a Dermabrasion that helps to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin with a procedure which blasts sterile Corundum Crystal to the skin surface.

This procedure enables the dead cells to be abraded and then whisked away by vacuum suction. New skin growth is subsequently stimulated, leaving your skin smoother, brighter, firmer and blemish free. A weekly course of six to ten sessions is recommended for optimal results.

This treatment is particularly recommended for people with sallow skin, post acne scars, congested, thick and oily skin. For those with post acne scars, multiple sessions will reduce the depth of scarring, producing a more even complexion. With the combination of the Oxygen Infusion Treatment, the results will be greatly enhanced. Results….. a clearer, fairer and radiant complexion.
