Every cell in our bodies needs oxygen to stay alive. Oxygen is a critical component of every single metabolic process within our bodies and plays a crucial role in the maintenance of healthy skin. Oxygen provides energy for our skin cells to perform all of their necessary functions such as collagen production, cell detoxification, healthy tissue maintenance, new cell production, and even wound healing. Research has shown that the amount of oxygen in our tissues directly affects our body’s ability to heal itself. Lower oxygen levels in our tissues will slow down healing and can lead to scars as well as prolong skin issues such as breakouts and eczema flare-ups.
We’ve all seen the dull gray and deeply wrinkled skin of a heavy smoker. This occurs because smoking decreases their lungs’ ability to oxygenate their body. Without adequate oxygen, their skin cells cannot regenerate properly. This triggers the aging process making the person’s skin look much older than they actually are and leaving them with a dull complexion. But smoking is not the only thing that deprives the skin of the oxygen it needs to stay healthy. This is just an example to give some insight into the role that oxygen plays in healthy, glowing skin.
Another thing that diminishes the amount of oxygen available to our skin cells is the natural aging process. As we get older the amount of oxygen in our cells declines which slows the skin renewal process. By age 25 our facial skin receives 30-40% less oxygen than it did in our teen years. This is when collagen and elastin production and cell regeneration begin to slow down, so the sooner we begin boosting our skin’s oxygen levels the better.
There are oxygen infusion treatments available that will not only infuse your skin with the oxygen it needs, but also nourish your skin with a blend of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and peptides. These treatments increase collagen in cells, boost cell renewal, build cellular immunity, and slow the aging process. But here at Utopia Salon & Day Spa, we like to take oxygen facials to the next level by combining them with microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive light cosmetic procedure that is simple, easy, and painless. It uses bursts of crystals against the skin to deeply exfoliate, removing the outer layer of dead skin cells to expose the fresh new skin underneath. The microdermabrasion process also stimulates new skin cell growth, boosts collagen production, and increases circulation which increases tissue oxygenation. When combined with oxygen infusion the benefits of both treatments are greatly increased. The oxygen treatment is able to penetrate deeper into your skin tissues which boosts the effects of the microdermabrasion treatment.
If you want your skin to be healthier and look younger a microdermabrasion oxygen facial is an absolute must! This single skin treatment reduces facial lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone, improves the appearance of scars, minimizes large pores, reduces hyperpigmentations, and leaves your skin with a fresh healthy glow. Since there are virtually no side effects there is no downtime as there is with other anti-aging procedures. And the hypoallergenic crystals used to make this treatment perfect for skin that is sensitive to chemical treatments.
