Ever heard of an oxygen facial and wondered what it is all about? While the name of the treatment sounds like a fad, it does have real benefits for the skin.
Although suitable for all skin types, an oxygen facial is also especially great as an acne treatment for those with acne-prone skin.
Here is everything you need to know about an oxygen facial as well as the benefits – read on to find out more.
What is an oxygen facial?
It is a non-medical procedure and non-invasive treatment that uses a machine to deliver a stream of high pressurised oxygen coupled with various serums to the skin. It uses the airbrush effect to cleanse, moisturise and exfoliate the skin to unclog pores and remove dirt that has accumulated on the surface.
It is a comfortable and relaxing experience but like other acne facials, it involves extraction which may cause some discomfort so that is something to note.
What are the benefits of an oxygen facial?
1. Calms acne
The process of spraying oxygen directly to the surface of your skin will result in a cooling effect that helps to soothe any redness and inflammation from acne. Oxygen is also naturally antibacterial to accelerate wound healing and hence, is often considered as an acne treatment thanks to this benefit.
2. Evens out skin tone
High pressurised oxygen paired with serums that target your skin concerns allows the product to be absorbed into your skin quicker and better, evening out your skin tone in return. This unique acne facial will improve the appearance of acne scars and help you to achieve brighter and glowing skin at the same time.
3. Reduces the appearance of fine lines
While fine lines and wrinkles are usually not the biggest concerns if you are dealing with acne, an oxygen facial will also reduce the signs of ageing so what’s not to love about it? As it can improve blood circulation to the face, your skin gets plumper and brighter with consistent treatments.
4. Hydrates skin from inside out
Excessive sebum is one of the biggest culprits of acne. Therefore, going for an oxygen facial as your acne treatment is crucial in hydrating your skin from within so that it does not feel the need to overcompensate with more sebum. The oxygen helps to infuse the serum deep into the dermis, letting it work its magic for smoother and more moisturised skin.
5. Increases skin radiance
Last but not least, an oxygen facial also increases your skin’s radiance by allowing your pores to absorb the ingredients from the serum better. Of course, the benefits vary depending on the serum used.
How is an oxygen facial done at Indulgence Beauty?
Here at Indulgence Beauty, we offer the Oxy Liqui Facial Treatment, one of the most effective acne facials in Singapore.
The treatment will start off with double cleansing to remove all traces of makeup, followed by a skin analysis to allow the esthetician to understand and identify your skin condition through taking two photos – one natural and one in ultra-violet.
Light exfoliation will then take place to remove dead skin cells and dirt before steaming and extraction. Then, oxygen will be sprayed onto your skin using a contactless handpiece.
The treatment is usually done every 10 to 30 days depending on your skin condition. Get in touch with us today to find out more or to book an appointment!
