Oxygen treatment for face

Oxygen treatments for the face are incredibly popular and have been proven to revitalize the skin and slow down the signs of aging.  Celebrities all over the world have shared that they use oxygen facials regularly, and stars such as Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Justin Timberlake and Kim Kardashian even own their own oxygen machines! 

So what do oxygen treatments do?  And why are they so great?

Oxygenation treatments have been around for a while now.  The first oxygen treatment was introduced by an Australian company called Intraceuticals back in 2002, and since then dozens of other companies have developed similar technologies. 

The basic oxygen treatment for the face involves an air gun that emits a continuous flow of 90 to 95 percent pure oxygen under hyperbaric pressure (this is much higher than the 18-21% of oxygen found naturally in our environment).  The infusion of oxygen has been shown to increase the metabolism of the cell, improve the skin’s elasticity and stimulate the production of collagen.  As a result, the outermost layer of the skin called the epidermis thickens, and there is a marked improvement in the texture of the skin as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. 

While these effects are impressive, what has really made oxygen treatments for the face effective is the infusion of active ingredients.  Cosmeticians combine the treatment with highly potent serums that revitalize and heal the skin.  The serums are “pushed” into the skin using the pressurized oxygen and therefore penetrate deeper into the skin.  There are different serums for different skin conditions, but most include a blend of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, peptides and/or vitamins and botanical extracts.  

These 4 types of treatments are typically offered:
1. Skin rejuvenation- reduces the appearance of wrinkles and enhances overall hydration.
2. Opulence- a treatment that events out the skin’s tone and helps it look brighter and more glowing.
3. Clarity- an acne treatment that calms the skin and restores moisture to the skin and also helps prevent future breakouts
4. Atoxelene- a “needle-free” Botox used that softens and firms expression lines, contours the area around the eyes and plump the lips

The NowMi Oxygen treatment – the latest oxygen treatment for the face

The NowMi oxygen treatment is the next generation of oxygen treatments for the face.  What sets it apart is that instead of infusing the oxygen into the skin using an air gun, the NowMi treatment stimulates the body to naturally oxygenate itself from within.  It does so using a scientific principle called the Bohr effect. In very simple terms, the Bohr effect states that when a carbon dioxide (C02) rich environment is formed on the skin’s surface, the body responds by sending oxygen (02) rich blood to the targeted area in order to counter the effect of the carbon dioxide.

The NowMi treatment creates a C02 rich environment by causing a controlled chemical reaction to take place on the skin’s surface.  The NowMi Pro weekly kit contains an effervescent tablet that is made up of pure vitamin C as well as sodium bi-carbonate and citric acid.  When the effervescent tablet comes into contact with the NowMi lubricant gel, there is a chemical reaction between the citric acid and the sodium bi-carbonate which creates millions of micro CO bubbles in the gel and subsequently on the skin.  And as mentioned above, the body responds to this by sending oxygen rich blood to the area. 

In addition to oxygenating the skin from within, the NowMi Pro weekly treatment infuses the skin with vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. These potent active ingredients have been proven to reinvigorate the skin and slow down the signs of aging.   

Here is a short description of what each ingredient does:

  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C has known to promote collagen production, which results in thickening of the dermis, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and skin toning.  It is also an antioxidant that protects skin cells from damaging free radicals formed by UV exposure and other extrinsic factors.  Additionally, Vitamin C inhibits the production of melanin and helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and dark spots. 
  • Vitamin E – Vitamin E is renowned for its skincare attributes.  First, it is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin premature aging caused by free radicals. Second, plays a critical role in the wound healing process and prevents the formation of scars.  Third, it is a natural anti-inflammatory that soothes and calms the skin.  Fourth, it hydrates the skin and helps lock in moisture.  
  • Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and its main function is to retain moisture and keep the skin well lubricated and moist.  It has been shown to reduce wrinkles, dermatitis and redness.  Hyaluronic acid also plays a role in wound healing and it helps to regulate inflammation levels and stimulate the production of blood vessels in the damaged area.   

Why should you choose a NowMi oxygen treatment for the face?

Oxygen treatments for the face have proven themselves as a highly effective way to slow down the signs of aging and achieve glowing skin.  Traditional spa oxygen treatments are great and are highly popular.  However, they are relatively costly – prices range from $150 – 300 USD per treatment and since maintenance treatments are required, a year of oxygen facials can cost between $2,500 to $5,000. 

There is also the issue of time.  You need to find the time to go to the spa, be in the spa, and come home.

Oxygen Facial for Dry Skin

What is Dry Skin?

Oxygen facial for dry skin

Dry skin is characterized by a lack of the appropriate amount of water in the most superficial layer of the skin, the epidermis. The epidermis is normally composed of fat and protein which help prevent skin dehydration. When there’s a deficiency in proteins and/or fat the skin moisture evaporates more easily. As one ages the amounts of natural skin oils and lubricants diminishes, causing dryness in areas such as the face, arms, hands, and particularly lower legs.

Symptoms and Causes of Dry Skin

Dry skin is usually a temporary condition that is related to age, health, and environmental factors. It is characterized by a feeling of tightness, especially after spending time soaked in water, like after bathing or swimming. When the skin is dry it often looks and feels a bit rough, with fine lines or cracks, as well as some form of flaking, peeling or scaling. Some people with dry skin may also experience itching and change in skin coloration such as redness or grayness.

The main causes of dry skin are environmental, such as weather. The skin tends to be the driest when there is low humidity and low temperatures, so it is especially common during winter, when it’s cold and heaters and fireplaces are used, causing reduced humidity. Another common cause of dry skin is the use of harsh soaps and detergents, which are formulated to remove oil, and subsequently strip moisture from the skin.

Although dry skin is usually harmless, if it is not cared for, it may lead to Atopic dermatitis (eczema) and infections in persons over the age of 40. Similarly, as skin becomes dry, it also may become more sensitive and prone to rashes and skin breakdown.

Dry skin is unpleasant and is relatively easy to prevent by using moisturizers, wearing rubber gloves when using harsh cleansers, and covering as much skin as possible in windy or cold weather. It is said that oxygen facials are especially suitable for the treatment of dry, sensitive and mature skin.

Oxygen Facials

An oxygen facial is a non-medical procedure that is gentle and painless and requires no harsh chemical peels. The treatment begins with skin cleansing, exfoliation, and a mild facial steam, before a machine is used to introduce oxygen directly into the skin’s pores. Typically the oxygen is treated with a number of supplements, such as vitamins, that nourish the skin. This infusion of oxygen and vitamins into the skin encourages the growth of new cells as well as collagen, leaving your skin smooth, rejuvenated and glowing.

Oxygen facials are especially effective for hydrating dry skin, as the oxygen increases circulation, improves skin texture, restores cell nourishment and stimulates collagen production.

The one disadvantage of oxygen facials is that their effects don’t usually last very long, and since spa oxygen facials are costly, this could be a hindrance.

NowMi Oxygen Facial Treatment

The NowMi oxygen facial treatment is the perfect solution for caring for dry skin, as it further improves on all the benefits of a spa oxygen facial treatment, while it can be performed at home at a much lower cost.

The NowMi Pro sonic device is the ultimate skin care solution.  It enables you to deeply cleans your skin on a daily basis and also perform weekly oxygenation treatments that nourish and rejuvenate the skin.

The weekly oxygenation facials infuse the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a substance naturally produced by the body. Its primary function is to retain water and it can hold 1,000 times its weight in water!  Hyaluronic acid therefore plays a major role in keeping tissues moist and well lubricated and helps prevent dry skin.

In addition, vitamin C and vitamin E are infused into the skin.  The vitamins are known for their antioxidant qualities and they help the skin combat skin dryness caused by overexposure to UV rays and other damaging extrinsic factors. 

What sets the NowMi treatment apart from traditional oxygenation treatments is the fact that the NowMi treatment stimulates the skin to oxygenate itself from within.  This is different from traditional oxygenation treatments in which the oxygen is applied externally onto the skin. 

The NowMi treatment stimulates a natural physiological response called the ‘Bohr Effect’.   The Bohr Effect states that when the body is exposed to high concentrations of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), it responds by sending oxygen (O2) rich blood cells to the area.  So, during the NowMi treatment, when the effervescent tablet comes into contact with the nourishing gel, a chemical reaction occurs which creates high concentrations of minute Carbon Dioxide (CO2) bubbles on the skin’s surface.  The body then responds by sending oxygen (O2) rich blood cells to the facial skin. As a result of this natural oxygenation process, the capillary flow in the skin increases which optimizes the penetration and absorption of the nutrients.

In this way the NowMi oxygen facial treatment has all the benefits of a traditional oxygen facial, with the advantage of maximizing effects by using the body’s natural ability to oxygenate.
