Oxygen facials were designed to boost the biological activity of facial skin cells. By increasing the oxygen levels in the cells, the body is better able to detoxify the facial skin, speed up cell turnover and increase collagen production. As a result, the skin becomes healthier and more radiant.
The NowMi PRO device uses an effect called the Bohr Effect to increase the oxygen levels of the facial skin cells from “within the skin”. The effect is completely natural and has been scientifically proven.
How the NowMi oxygenation works:
The NowMi effervescent tablet contains high concentration of pure vitamin C and as well as sodium bi-carbonate and citric acid. When the effervescent tablet comes into contact with the lubricant gel, a reaction between the citric acid and the sodium bi-carbonate occurs which creates micro-bubbles of CO2 in the gel and subsequently on the skin. As a result, the body responds by sending oxygen to all layers of the facial skin.
The efficacy of the oxygenation effect is significantly increased by the sonic energy. The NowMi Pro device emits 6,000 sonic pulsations per minute on the gel which increases the efficacy of the chemical reaction and pushes the CO2 micro-bubbles and the nutrients deep into the facial skin. This natural oxygen facial helps the facial skin cells to best absorb the vitamin C, E and hyaluronic acid and promotes skin rejuvenation and anti-aging.
The beneficial effect of CO2 on the skin
The beneficial effect of CO2 on the skin, also known as Balneotherpy, has been extensively researched and documented. Many studies have shown that exposing the skin to CO2 improves circulation and increases tissue perfusion. In addition, the studies demonstrated an increase in the blood flow of the capillaries and an increase of transcutaneous oxygen pressure. The benefits of this internal facial skin oxygenation are enormous– facial skin detoxification, increased cell turnover and increased collagen production.
