TRADITIONAL OXYGEN FACIAL VS. OXYGENEO FACIAL

Unlike standard oxygen facials, Face Cosmedics Oxygen Super Facial treatment doesn’t push oxygen into your skin. Rather, it makes the oxygenation occur from the inside (crazy concept, but it makes sense).

Here’s how it works:
The Treatment gel interacts with the tip of the handpiece used, which creates carbon dioxide bubbles and causes oxygen-rich blood to come to the surface of your skin. So basically, this magical wand is actually drawing oxygen to the surface from the inside instead of pushing it into your face. It makes a world of difference.

HOW DOES THE OXYGEN SUPER FACIAL FEEL?

An Oxygen Super Facial treatment feels like a massage for the face. The exfoliation is described as very refreshing and comfortable and, because there is no vacuum procedure (like with microdermabrasion or dermal infusion machines) the overall treatment is more soothing and relaxing. There may be a slight tingling sensation as the skin becomes more oxygenated but overall the procedure is very relaxing.

HOW DOES THE OXYGEN SUPER FACIAL COMPARE TO MICRODERMABRASION?

The Oxygen Super Facial treatment differs from microdermabrasion in many ways:

  • Microdermabrasion is done "dry" vs the Oxygen Super Facial which adds the benefit of applying a nutrient-rich gel onto the skin providing added comfort and cleansing.
  • The Oxygen Super Facial does not require a vacuum suction thus decreasing the risk of dilating small capillaries on the face which can cause redness
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER THE OXYGEN SUPER FACIAL TREATMENT?

After the treatment the skin looks brighter, fresher, and more even in skin tone. Also, pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, and even acne will continue to improve with a series of treatments. The skin feels softer and smoother immediately. Your skin will be revitalized, renewed, and gorgeous after just one treatment!

We suggest wearing Alumier MD sunscreen 30 SPF after your treatment, and every day going forward!

WHAT ARE THE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN THE NUTRIENT-RICH GELS?

The Brightening gel contains azaleic acid, kojic acid, and retinol and is the recommended product for pigmentation, brown spots, and acne. It helps lighten skin tone, minimizes the appearance of skin pigmentations and uneven skin tone.

  • Azelaic acid = Even pigmentation – Azelaic acid is a recognized agent for treating skin hyperpigmentation conditions decreasing the activity of pigment-producing cells.
  • Kojic acid = Skin lightening – Kojic acid is a naturally occurring agent produced by fungi which inhibits melanin production. When combined with azelaic acid, there is a synergistic lightening and bleaching effect.
  • Retinol = Anti-aging – A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol has been clinically proven to increase collagen and skin cell production. It is also known as one of the best anti-aging solutions.

The Antiaging gel is packed with anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and retinol. This product will rejuvenate your skin immediately for glowing, radiant skin and also helps to reduce pores. It helps to revitalize a dull complexion making the skin smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Hyaluronic acid = Hyaluronic acid increases hydration and prevents moisture loss resulting in more supple skin and more volume, thereby reducing wrinkles
  • Peptides = Skin Repair – Peptides are small protein fragments which strengthen the skin’s ability to retain fluids. Combined with hyaluronic acid, a synergetic effect of dermal repair is created
  • Retinol = Collagen renewal – A derivative of vitamin A, retinol has been clinically proven to increase collagen and skin cell production and is regarded as one of the most effective anti-wrinkle solutions.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN OXYGEN SUPER FACIAL

Please arrive to your appointment without any makeup on. Refrain from any exfoliating procedures or products for 1 week prior to the treatment such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion or laser. As well as, retinols, glycolic, salicylic or lactic acids.
This will help to minimize possible irritation.
