Oxygen treatments for the face are immensely popular. Celebrities such as Madonna and Victoria Beckham swear by them, and Katy Perry has been quoted as saying: “I use oxygen skin treatment to hydrate my skin and give me that fresh, well slept glowing look before any performance or appearance“.
Traditional oxygen treatments for the face are performed in a spa using a special machine capable of emitting highly pressurized oxygen. However, the NowMi treatment takes facial oxygen treatments to the next level and enables you to perform them at home at a fraction of the price!
What does oxygen do?
Oxygen is vital for the health and maintenance of all human cells. When it comes to skin cells, young skin more easily absorbs and benefits from oxygen than older skin. The reason is that older skin slowly loses its ability to retain and use the oxygen for its daily functioning, namely, repair and regeneration of skin tissue.
Therefore, boosting the amount of oxygen in the skin’s cells:
- Increases the production of collagen
- Accelerates cell metabolism and toxin removal
- Expediates cell regeneration
- Promotes skin repair
What can I expect from an oxygen treatment for the face?
During the oxygen facial treatment, an aesthetician will use a small spray gun to infuse oxygen into your skin. In most cases, nourishing vitamins and minerals are also penetrated in order to achieve the best skincare results.
The most common benefits of oxygen treatments for the face are:
- Glowing skin – The oxygen, together with active ingredients such as vitamin C and E, rejuvenates the skin and gives it a fresh and glowing look.
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles – The oxygen stimulates the body to produce new collagen. As a result, the skin becomes tighter and firmer.
- Hydrated skin – Often, hyaluronic acid is infused into the skin. The hyaluronic acid helps it to retain moisture and have a plumper appearance.
- Improved textural imperfections – The oxygen boosts the cell’s metabolism, enabling it to clear away waste such as excess pigmentation. In addition, vitamin C decreases pigmentation.
The NowMi Oxygen Treatment for Face
Unlike traditional oxygen treatments for the face that are carried out in a spa, the NowMi is a home-based treatment. It is modeled after the professional OxyGeno spa treatment and delivers better results. The treatment includes 4 skin actions- exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.
Exfoliation: The skin is gently exfoliated using the NowMi effervescent tablet. The exfoliation removes all dead skin cells as well as makeup residue and dirt. It thoroughly cleanses the pores and prepares them to best absorb the active ingredients.
Nourishment: The NowMi treatment infuses the skin with pure vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid. These ingredients play a vital role in the skin’s ability to heal and repair itself. Vitamin C is integral in collagen synthesis, vitamin E supports the cell’s function and has anti-inflammatory properties, and Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and enables it to retain water.
Oxygenation: Unlike traditional facial treatments, the NowMi treatment stimulates the body to oxygenate itself from within. It does this completely naturally, based on a scientific principle called the Bohr effect. The Bohr effect states that if there is an excess amount of carbon dioxide on the skin, the body counters this by sending oxygen rich cells to the treatment area. Therefore, during the NowMi treatment, a chemical reaction between the effervescent tablet and the gel creates a carbon dioxide rich environment. The body then responds and oxygenates the area. Since the oxygenation comes from within the body, it means that all of the cells are oxygenated.
Protection: Vitamin C and E are powerful antioxidants that protect the skin from extrinsic damage caused by UV rays, pollution and smoke.
Oxygen treatments for the face are incredibly popular. The oxygen revitalizes the skin and slows down the signs of aging. The NowMi treatment enables you to enjoy all of the benefits of a professional spa treatment in a quick and easy home-use treatment that costs a fraction of the price.
