Oxygeneo™ : I Tried The Hottest Instant Anti-Aging Facial And I'm Hooked
I've never had more compliments on my refreshed skin, ever. And as someone who suffers from cystic acne, this treatment was a dream; the fact I looked 5 - 10 years younger...that's a bonus!
Taking good care of your skin at any age is important. This is even more important these days with all the pollution and contaminants that you expose your skin to. Add to this the stress that everyday life brings and you have skin that begs to be given a break. Thankfully there are facials that not only help rejuvenate and refresh your skin but also give it that youthful glow you will love. This is called the Oxygeneo Facial.
What is Oxygeneo?
Called by many as the super facial, Oxygeneo is a 3-in-1 therapy that gives you younger-looking skin without the need for surgery or needles. This is a no-face-lift, anti-aging treatment that can give you the kind of skin you want via a three-pronged process – exfoliation, infusion, and oxygenation.
This is how it works.
Step 1: Exfoliation
The outer layer of your skin is carefully cleaned of dead skin cells and other impurities. Similar to microdermabrasion, this process helps prepare the skin to receive the nutrients it needs. These nutrients are introduced to the skin via the next phase in this treatment.
Step 2: Infusion
Once the skin is cleaned of surface impurities and dead skin cells, it is ready to receive the nutrients via Capsugen. You can choose from two options for nutrient infusion with this stage. One is an anti-aging and rejuvenation combination called NeoRevive while the other is a texture-improving and skin brightening mixture called NeoBright. Both are introduced into the skin at this stage while the skin is being cleansed at the same time.
Step 3: Oxygenation
One of the things oxygen does to your skin is to increase blood circulation and to encourage new cell growth. It has also been noted that oxygenated skin heals better and faster. This is what this stage does for you. It helps increase oxygenated blood to your skin and heals your skin fast to give you great looking skin in less time than most other treatments.
Benefits of Oxygeneo
Why should you choose Oxygeneo over other facial treatments? Aside from the fact that you are actually getting three treatments in one super facial, you are also giving your skin the youthful look you want without it being invasive. Since the wand used to exfoliate, infuse, and oxygenate does not use needles or any other similar devices, you don’t have to worry about pain. The process is, in fact, gentle and can even be used on those with sensitive skin.
It works crazy fast
Yes, it is a quick-acting facial treatment because of the three processes used to give your skin what it needs to make it look and feel better. The exfoliation of the dead skin cells from the surface prepares your skin to absorb the nutrients that are introduced to it in the infusion phase. The oxygenation phase helps expedite the absorption of the nutrients from the second phase. It also adds much needed oxygen to your skin for faster healing and better blood circulation. This basically means there is no recovery time needed when you choose this treatment.
It is not as costly as most other rejuvenating treatments
So my treatment at Hammam, in Toronto was $165 - including a credit to come use the Hammam steam room at another time (value $45.00). Other treatments that help make you look younger and better can cost you an arm and a leg. Oxygeneo is considered a more cost-effective choice for youthful skin since you are essentially getting three facial treatments at the cost of one. This means you get a low-cost facial treatment that actually gives you better results than your standard facial or even other regular oxygen facials.
It is gentler than other facial treatments
Even with the exfoliating step, this treatment is actually gentler on the skin than others that are similar to it. This is because the equipment used does not remove dead skin cells and surface contaminants with the use of force. It does not have a vacuum suction action that usually leaves skin puffy and red. It has a gentle massaging and buffing action that gets rid of the dull surface layer of your skin without irritating it.
What Happens When You Get an Oxygeneo Treatment
So, what happens when you try the Oxygeneo treatment? This is what you can expect:
The treatment begins with a cleansing stage where your skin is cleaned of any surface dirt before exfoliation begins.
Your skin is prepped for the exfoliation stage with the application of the gel (NeoBright or NeoRevive) that you choose for your treatment.The removal of dirt and dead skin cells begins with the use of the treatment wand fitted with a fresh Capsugen head.
The foam produced by the exfoliation stage is removed with a gentle washing and more gel is applied to the skin for the next stage.A massage tip replaces the used Capsugen head and the infusion stage begins. It is also during this stage that oxygenation happens.To ensure full absorption of the nutrients in the gel that is used on your face, your aesthetician will massage the remaining gel into your skin by hand.
All of this happens in less than an hour, with special attention being paid to areas that you feel need it the most. You will find that your skin glows, is more radiant, and looks younger after one treatment. It is advisable to do this at least once a month for optimal results.
