Introducing our new OxyRevive Treatment…
This treatment incorporates the physics of the high-velocity jet stream targeted at a point-size area of your skin to achieve the functions of dermabrasion. Using Sodium Chloride, a saline solution closer to the pH of the skin, as a medium, this treatment ensures skin is well hydrated and pumped with Oxygen while we remove congested pores and dead skin cells.
Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides you with extra oxygen, a gas that your body needs to work properly. Normally, your lungs absorb oxygen from the air. However, some diseases and conditions can prevent you from getting enough oxygen. Oxygen therapy can help ensure that you get enough oxygen which may help you function better and be more active.
As a delivery mechanism, the oxygen is compressed and sprayed at high pressure directly on to the skin surface. A “serum” of active ingredients such as nutrients or vitamins etc are introduced to the oxygen stream just before the skin, and the combined oxygen and ingredients in the form of a high-pressure jet force its way past the skins barrier defence systems and into the lower levels of the epidermis.
The oxygen used during the facial actually provides therapeutic effects from a topical application, and the premise that we can increase the energy in the skin’s cells by topical application of oxygen is flawed for a number of reasons. We need to consider the following factors:
– The human skin does not respire to any perceptible degree; in fact, the skin does not require being in an oxygen environment other than respiration via the lungs.
– The skin barrier defence systems effectively render the skin waterproof, as nature limits our exposure to a specific concentration of oxygen for good reasons.
Marketers of oxygen therapies often refer to the proven effects of oxygen on unhealthy or damaged tissues to state their case, with the vasoconstrictive effects, reduction of inflammatory cytokines, increase in growth factors, and antibacterial effects mentioned.
There is indeed a degree of truth to those statements, as oxygen has been successfully used to assist wound healing for over fifty years. It is, however, the increase in oxygen concentration in the cells via the pulmonary vascular system introduced by the oxygen-rich environments in hyperbaric chambers and oxygen tents rather than direct contact of the wound with the oxygen.
