The 3 Hero Ingredients Behind the Oxybrasion Facial
1. Oxygen / Oxygenation
As we get older, it’s harder for oxygen to reach and oxygenate the skin, even with all the oxygen that is present in the air that we breathe. Oxygen is primely agreed upon as a key ingredient in wound healing.
When a highly concentrated stream of oxygen molecules is focused on the face in our oxybrasion facial, it makes skin look plumper, softens lines, kills p-acne bacteria, promotes collagen production and blood circulation for younger-looking skin. Oxygenation may also help meet an oxygen deficiency in skin tissue.
However, research on the effectiveness of oxygen facials is mixed.
L’amour Oxybrasion vs oxygen facial
As oxygen facials differ between beauty clinics, it is important to understand the process to get a more accurate picture of the results. Some clinics offer an oxygen facial with oxygen-infused skin care products or by putting a dome over the face that gets filled with oxygen. To put it simply: many oxygen facials simply put oxygen on the surface of the skin. The L’amour Oxybrasion machine treatment on the other hand enriches the skin by drawing oxygen rich blood to the skin through the Bohr effect.
Exfoliation makes an important feature during our L’amour Oxy-brasion facial in Sydney for smooth, nourished skin. Our beauticians use the Oxybrasion tool which uses ultrasound technology which interacts with the treatment solution to produce the Bohr effect drawing oxygen rich blood to the skin’s surface resulting in oxygenation and increased cellular activity. Not only does this infuse the skin with oxygen to help aid the body’s internal storage of oxygen deep down into the pores, but it also enhances exfoliation.
The serial application of this technology improves blood flow to distressed skin and creates your own immune response and cellular action to improve your brightness and appearance. It can be done on the face, neck, and decolletage. You will notice an improvement after the first treatment. It can be done even on the day of an important event to bring a glowing you to the spotlight. Some of our patients use this technique weekly on their countdown to an important time in their life, like a presentation, a wedding or any other social event.
2. High Frequency
High-frequency currents promote natural cleansing and helps kill bacteria on the skin, killing existing acne and helping to prevent new breakouts from coming through. High frequency is especially helpful for anyone who experiences cystic acne, as the currents are able to deeply penetrate the skin. We pair this technology with serums in our high frequency skin spatula to help skin care products be absorbed much more efficiently into the skin.
Ultrasound, or HIFU (high intensity focussed ultrasound) as it is also known, is a minimally invasive procedure that works to help contour and tighten the skin. HIFU penetrates 5mm deep under the skin, reaching the second layer of muscles of the face to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s dermis layer (an area where we begin creating less and less collagen after 20). Supporting the facial muscles for a firmer appearance.
We always provide skin care advice over tea after your treatment to help you prolong your results and retain the glow of beautiful, healthy skin. Oxybrasion facials have no down time afterwards, it is the perfect facial to be done for a pre-event cleanse and glow.
