The oxygen infusion facial helps reduce breakouts because the treatment unclogs pores, removes dirt and sebum. Furthermore, oxygen kills bacteria. Oxygen enables hydrating agents, peptides, and antioxidants to penetrate deeper skin layers and do their job more effectively. The result is hydrated, radiant skin.
What can I expect from an Oxygen Facial?
Oxygen Facial is a relaxing and comfortable treatment with low downtime. Immediately, your skin may look slightly blushed, but dewy and radiant! It can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté, or back. Repeated treatments will increase the longevity of the effects and are cumulative when a series is done.
How often should I get a treatment?
Results can last 4-7 days, making it a great event treatment. For best results, we recommend getting a treatment every 1-2 weeks for 6 sessions, followed by one every 4-6 weeks for maintenance. The Oxygen Facial is also an ideal treatment 1-3 days before a big event because it hydrates and primes the skin for even makeup application.
