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.
Anti-aging oxygen facial device for home use
NowMi provides two kits for ant-aging oxygen facials. The basic kit includes 6 vitamin C effervescent tablets, 100ml of lubricant gel containing vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid and applicator. The basic set is for full course of weekly anti-aging treatments. The NowMi Pro sonic anti-aging device comes in a kit containing 6 vitamin C effervescent tablets, 100ml lubricant gel containing vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid, 100ml facial cleansing gel containing vitamins B3, B5, E and Dead Sea minerals. It is used on a daily basis for facial skin cleansing, in addition to the 6 weekly anti-aging treatments. Once you buy one of the NowMi kits, additional weekly anti-aging oxygen facial treatments can be performed by purchasing the refill kit.
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.
