Smoking causes great damage to facial skin (among other obvious negative effects that we won’t mention here). The thousands of chemicals and carcinogens in tobacco limit blood circulation, making the skin starve for oxygen, resulting in the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for firm and healthy facial skin.

Smoking causes great damage to facial skin (among other obvious negative effects that we won’t mention here). The thousands of chemicals and carcinogens in tobacco limit blood circulation, making the skin starve for oxygen, resulting in the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for firm and healthy facial skin.

Similarly, the facial skin of smokers is dry and coarse, and the limited blood flow that results from smoking increases the likelihood of broken capillaries and veins, resulting in dark scarring on the face. Wrinkles and furrows are also formed around the mouth by repeated suction action, as the effect of the nicotine slows down the ability of the skin to heal and repair itself. This also results in saggy and loose skin in the neck area, and the appearance of bags under the eyes.

Smokers also suffer from facial skin discoloration, as well as discoloration of their tongue and teeth, and are generally much more susceptible to facial skin disorders, such as skin cancer, psoriasis, lupus and acne.

Reverse the effects of smoking by using oxygen facials

When you quit smoking, there will be a dramatic improvement in your facial skin’s coloration, and your body will naturally produce more collagen and elastin, gradually restoring your facial skin’s firmness and elasticity.

However, since limited blood circulation and the lack of oxygen reaching the facial skin is responsible for much of the damage caused to your facial skin while smoking, once you quit smoking, infusing your skin with vitamin C, E and hyaluronic acid using oxygen facials is the best way to effectively help your skin to revitalize and heal.

Traditional oxygen facials

Traditional oxygen facials rejuvenate the skin and improve its texture and glow, as well as reduce fine lines. Although different skin spas offer slightly different procedures for oxygen facials, they all share similar stages.

First, the skin is prepared by deep cleansing that cleanses and exfoliates the facial skin. Then, a device delivers oxygen to the deepest layers of the skin using hyperbaric pressure, which feels like a blast of cold air and is completely painless. During the next stage a serum containing vitamins and other supplements is infused into the skin using the same device.

NowMi oxygen facial treatment

The NowMi oxygen facial treatment is an advanced, anti-aging treatment that offers many benefits that bring oxygen facial treatment to a whole new level.

First, the NowMi oxygen facial treatment uses an effervescent tablet that contains a pure vitamin C which is combined with a lubricant gel to create a chemical reaction that results in the formation of CO2 micro-bubbles on the skin’s surface, creating a CO2 rich environment. The body responds by sending oxygen (O2) rich blood cells to the facial skin. This is scientifically known as the Bohr Effect. Thus, instead of using external oxygenation of the skin, as used in traditional oxygen facials, the NowMi oxygen facial treatment stimulates the facial skin to oxygenate itself from within. As a result, the facial skin heals and repairs itself, and looks and feels much younger and firmer, with a natural glow.

Similarly, the NowMi oxygen facial treatment offers a home-use device at a spa quality level. This means that you can care for your skin at a reduced cost, in your own home, which is much more convenient and comfortable, and without having to compromise on quality or results.

Another advantage of the NowMi oxygen treatment is that it is fast, and can be performed within 5 minutes. The device itself is also compact, portable and lightweight, which means you can carry it wherever you go and treat yourself to an oxygen facial whenever you like.

Anti-Aging Oxygen Facial

Although aging is a natural human process, it is expressed differently in different people, as well as in different organs, tissues and cells of the body. While the signs of aging of internal organs are hidden from the eye, the signs of aging skin are evident and clear for all to see.

Statistics clearly show that the US population is becoming older. As of November 8, 2018, the United States is estimated to have a population of 328,953,020 people. The median age of the total population is 38.1; the male median age is 36.8; the female median age is 39.4. Aging starts as early as age 25, whereas 68% of the US population are older than 25 years old and nearly 30% are older than 55 years old.

It is no wonder that the demands for anti-aging skin therapies is rapidly increasing. One of the best treatments to address this issue is anti-aging oxygen facial.

Facial skin aging

Facial skin aging results from internal and external processes. Internal skin aging is influenced by genetics, slower cell metabolism and hormonal changes. External skin aging processes are influenced by exposure to sun light, pollution, ionizing radiation, chemicals and toxins. Together these factors lead to the appearance of aging skin, especially on the facial skin area that is exposed to the sun. The skin becomes thin, wrinkled and dry. Aged skin typically shows spotted, deep wrinkles, laxity, dullness and roughness.

The main purpose of any anti-aging skin therapy is to achieve a healthy, smooth, glowing skin, free of age-spots. The outermost skin layer, the stratum corneum, is an important protector against premature facial skin aging. It protects the skin from dehydration, penetration of various bacteria, allergens, irritants, reactive oxygen species and radiation. In the dermis layer, it is important to stop the degradation of the skin’s primary structural components: collagen and elastin, as well as reduce inflammation by topical antioxidants.

What is anti-aging oxygen facial?

Anti-aging oxygen facials infuse the skin with active ingredients (vitamin C, E, and hyaluronic acid) and at the same time elevate the level of available oxygen to the skin cells. It is important to understand that without oxygen the skin cells are unable to fully use the active ingredients. Its like infusing more gas into a car engine without increasing the inlet flow of oxygen. Elevating the oxygen level in the skin is done either externally or internally. Externally, a pressured oxygen gas is sprayed on the skin, typically performed in a clinic, due to the large and expensive machine that is required. Internal skin oxygenation uses the body’s own biological mechanism, through using the scientifically and clinically proven Bohr Effect. In simple words, by creating an environment rich in CO2 on the skin, the body sends more oxygen to the skin in order to balance the extra CO2 levels.

The most important antioxidants are vitamin C and E. The two vitamins have a small molecular size enabling them to enter the skin quite easily. Vitamin C anti-aging effects in the skin have been proven to increase collagen production. The combined antioxidant effect of the combination of vitamins C and E is greater than when vitamin C is used alone. Vitamin E is soluble in fat. The anti-aging effect is reached by smoothing the skin and increasing the ability of the stratum corneum to protect the skin from dehydration. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a clear substance that is naturally produced by the body. Its main function is to retain water to keep the skin well hydrated. It has been proven that HA also plays an important role in wound healing.

How does the NowMi anti-aging oxygen facial work?

The recommended use of the NowMi anti-aging oxygen facial treatment is once a week. The treatment provides 4 simultaneous actions and takes only 5 minutes to do. The 4-in-1 actions are: exfoliation, oxygenation, nourishment, and skin protection.


The effervescent tablet, which contains high concentration pure vitamin C, gently exfoliates the skin and removes unwanted dead cells, smooths the skin, and allows for the optimal infusion of active ingredients into the epidermis.


The interaction between the gel and the vitamin C effervescent tablet creates micro CO2 bubbles that activate a natural physiological response called the Bohr effect.  The effect stimulates an oxygen rich environment in the treatment area.


The NowMi treatment nourishes the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C has been clinically proven as an anti-aging and anti-inflammatory agent, as well as an anti-pigmentary agent. The vitamin E further enhances the effectiveness of the vitamin C, and combined with the Hyaluronic acid, helps the skin maintain its moisture and firmness.


Vitamin C is the most prevalent antioxidant in the human skin and, unfortunately, its quantity rapidly decreases with age.  By replenishing the skin’s lost vitamin C supply, it is able to better protect against UV rays and other extrinsic factors such as pollution and smoking which damage and age the skin.

Is NowMi treatment clinically proven?

Yes, The NowMi treatment was tested in a clinical study performed by a third party GLP certified laboratory.

  • Immediate results were seen after the first treatment.
  • Compared to baseline, there was a 25.9% increase in facial skin smoothness after 6 weekly treatments, meaning that the facial skin looked younger by approximately 12 years.
