Oxygen Facials – The Secret To Youthful Looking Skin

If you have never tried oxygen facials now is the time to do so. Most celebrities including Madonna and Heather Locklear swear by its amazing results.

If you have started witnessing the visible signs of ageing like the appearance of fine line, wrinkles and age spots or have been experiencing stress which has made your skin look dull and lackluster, you need to go in for an oxygen facial .Most day spas offer oxygen facials which leave your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

So what exactly is the oxygen facial? The oxygen facial is a skincare treatment wherein a machine blasts a stream of highly pressurized oxygen which contains moisturizers that are packed with minerals, vitamins and collagen deep into the skin layers. This treatment creates amazing but instant results whereby the skin looks smother, younger, fresher and plumper. In short it is the equivalent of getting a two week break at an expensive Swiss chalet.

Oxygen facials are normally performed at spas under the supervision of a trained esthetician. In this treatment procedure, pressurized oxygen is blasted on the skin.However the oxygen which is used for this treatment includes serums which have been infused with vital skin ingredients like Vitamin C, skin essential minerals and vitamins and collagen which is absorbed by the skin through the pores.

Before starting on the oxygen facial, your esthetician will cleanse, exfoliate and steam the skin to remove the dirt and oil which clogs up the pores and to open it up. Next the therapist uses a nozzle which delivers the moisturizers infused pressurized oxygen directly onto the skin. Then the esthetician performs a face and neck massage to drive this nutrient laden serum deeper into the skin. Finally the skin is toned and moisturized and a sunscreen is applied.

A non surgical treatment, oxygen facials can even be performed on acne scarred skin. Oxygen facials are normally done to soften and re-hydrate the skin and restore the elasticity of the skin. Each day we experience various environmental and chemical pollutants which destroy the natural beauty of the skin.

Oxygen facials help to reduce the grayness of the skin, treats skin conditions like rosacae, reduces the appearance of fine lines, hyper pigmentation and shrinks enlarged facial pores. An oxygen facial will leave your skin feeling dewy fresh.
