Getting an oxygen facial is a clear favorite because of the way it gives the skin an immediate glow after the treatment. This type of facial was introduced back in the 2000s and had since been developed to meet the unique skin requirements of the modern woman.
Oxygen facials involve the use of a pressurized stream of oxygen. This allows it to deliver ingredients into the skin that will help promote the production of collagen, detoxify the skin, and expedite the turnover of new skin cells. What is great about this type of facial is that you can immediately put on makeup or go through your usual routine without fear of compromising the effects of the treatment.
Among the various types of oxygen facial, the OxyGeneo is getting rave reviews because it is like a 3-in-1 treatment.
- It exfoliates the skin by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. This can be likened to a gentle microdermabrasion. It is actually the key to helping the skin absorb the ingredients that will make it healthy.
- It rejuvenates the skin as it is infused with active ingredients that include peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants.
- It creates carbon dioxide bubbles that are gently introduced on the surface of the skin to stimulate a blood flow that is rich in oxygen. It allows better absorption of the active ingredients being infused in the skin.
With the OxyGeneo, there are two types of active ingredients to choose from. The NeoRevive is all about rejuvenation and anti-aging while the NeoBright is all about the improvement of the skin texture and a brighter glow of the skin.
This oxygen facial uses a non-vacuum handpiece that vibrates onto the skin – making you feel like it is being buffed. The gentleness allows it to be used on the thin areas of the skin like those around the nose, eyes, and mouth.
The way this treatment delivers the oxygen is also different. Instead of having a stream of pressurized oxygen on the face, it uses a “Capsugen” capsule at the end of the handpiece to exfoliate the skin. This capsule is made of sodium bicarbonate, magnesium, and citric acid. The gel that was placed in your face interacts with this and causes the creation of carbon dioxide bubbles. These bubbles cause oxygen-rich blood to go to the surface of the skin. The interaction of the ingredients on your skin feels really good.
Compared to the usual oxygen facial, the process is quicker. It goes through the usual process of cleansing, exfoliation and infusion of active ingredients. Overall, it takes 30 minutes or less to complete.
What makes OxyGeneo better than other oxygen facials is the fact that it is delivered in a safer and non-irritating manner. If you already love the usual oxygen facial, you will definitely love the experience of having your skin cleansed by OxyGeneo.
