Oxygen therapy literally breathes new life into your skin. we all know how great we look and feel after having some time away in the fresh air. All cells need oxygen to regenerate and function, so infusing Oxygen into skin cells optimises this process while also enhancing penetration of active ingredients further into the dermis.
This method was originally used in the medical field to re-generate and grow skin cells and because of the results it achieved it has now moved across into the beauty field for its anti-ageing effects. Oxygen facials can help deliver serious skin health, offering results in both the beauty and medical aspect of skin treatments. I find it suits and benefits all skin types and really is great as an advanced skin freshen up and extra boost to a facial as well as for more targeted results especially for hydrating, plumping, redness, skin healing, reducing the appearance of fine lines, polluted, congested skin in need of a deep cleanse, the list goes on and on….. l like to combine it into my signature treatments for an amazing extra skin boost and deeper product infusion and immediate visible results, making it ideal for that special event skin treat and more importantly keep the skin at optimum health. It is also fantastic as a stand alone Oxygen treatment
What are the benefits of Oxygen? Oxygen can help the skin retain moisture while tightening blood vessels and reducing redness. Oxygen accelerates dermal collagen production through the stimulation of metabolic processes.
Surgery where the skin is cut is going to interrupt the blood flow which containes essential oxygen for tissue repair. Applying oxygen mist immediately after surgery helps provide essential oxygen to promote tissue repair, speeding the healing process.
Acne skin conditions can benefit from Oxygen in a facial as the Propionibacteria does not like Oxygen, a course of treatments incorporating oxygen would be needed for the best results and in combination with other methods and home-care.
Rosacea can benefit from a course of treatments to help gain control of flair ups. Infusing oxygen deeper into the dermis to get to the deep blood vessels to constrict may help to reduce the appearance of redness within the skin and reduce inflammation.
Topical oxygen mist is used medically to promote the healing of burns making it ideal for post “too much sun exposure”!
Oxygen is incorporated into a number of Abigail’s treatments and also as a stand alone skin treat, for this and other treatments see Abigail’s menu
