There are so many facial treatments available today that it can be hard to know what’s right for your skin. You may see some of your favorite celebrities or influencers talking about and advocating for certain treatments on social media. This is especially true when you are looking at treatments at a medispa or dermatologist’s office. Some of those facial treatments can be pretty expensive too, so it’s helpful to know what you’re getting into and whether those treatments are the best for your skin.
One of the latest treatments on the market today is the oxygen infused facial. We all know that we need oxygen to live and breathe, obviously, but what are the benefits if it’s directly applied to your skin? Let’s explore what an oxygen infused facial procedure entails, and some of the products that mimic the results at Cosmedica Skincare. We’re happy to provide amazing and effective skincare line that will give you the glowing skin of your dreams. Plus, all of our skincare is at an affordable price point to save money and get those great skin results.
What Is an Oxygen Infused Facial?
An oxygen infused facial is performed by an aesthetician or dermatologist in an office where oxygen is directly applied at high pressure to the skin while at the same time applying different types of serums along with hyaluronic acid. It’s meant to be part of the new trend, and celebrities everywhere have been very open on social media about promoting it. Celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jessica Biel have said it’s transformed their skin with visible results. Keep in mind that they are most likely paid to endorse the cosmetic procedure.
The company that is responsible for this type of oxygen therapy facial is Intraceuticals. They offer the oxygen infusion facial geared towards different skin types and concerns. So, whether you have dull skin, acne, or aging concerns, there is an oxygen infusion facial that is right for you. The application method is the most unique part of the treatment. The oxygen at high pressure is meant to stimulate blood circulation in the skin, encouraging the shedding of dead skin cells to create an optimal glow and vitality to any existing skin condition. With the added hydration, the skin appears luminous and plumped up, thanks to the hyaluronic acid and the addition of peptides, minerals, vitamins, and botanical extracts. This is facial session is meant to be done on a regular basis, probably once or twice a month for the ideal results.
Oxygen Infused Facial Benefits
Each oxygen facial treatment can be geared towards different skin types and concerns, but in general, the benefits are the following:
- Boosts collagen production
- Detoxes the skin from congestion
- Increases cellular turnover
- Gets rid of dry skin
- Gives a radiant glow and smooth skin
- Pores appear smaller
- Acne scars diminished
- Zero downtime
And the list goes on and on. The pure oxygen infused facial is geared towards giving a brighter and more even glow to the skin in instant results. Skin will appear plumped up, fine lines are diminished, and skin is renewed with the results being seen right away after the treatment.
Oxygen Infused Facial Price
Well, let’s get down to what this oxygen infusion treatment actually costs at a medispa, spa, or dermatologist’s office. Depending on which place you go to the price can vary widely. In general, it’s around $75 to $150, but can be in the range of $200 to $500 in some larger cities. It’s definitely a luxury that not everyone can afford, which is why being able to get some of those same results with our products at Cosmedica Skincare is the way to go, when it’s not in your budget to shell out big money for pricey treatments to get that youthful appearance you desire.
At Home Oxygen Facials
You obviously aren’t going to have access to the same type of equipment that Intraceuticals offers professional estheticians at a spa clinic to use on their clients. There are some home-based machines on the market today, but you can do a DIY version by just steaming your skin over a bowl of hot water. This will open up the pores and allows the skin to take in more of the beneficial skincare you’ll use during a home facial. Make sure you do a complete facial massage to deliver all the serums and moisture for a healthy glow to the skin.
Oxygen Facial Side Effects
The side effects of an oxygen infused facial can be temporary redness, especially if you are more prone to having sensitive skin. You may be a little pink or red for a few hours, or even a day or two after the treatment.
You may also have some puffiness or mild facial swelling that goes along with the redness. That is just from the intense manipulation of the skin and should go down a few hours later. If after any treatment your skin is very swollen or irritated, it may be due to an allergic reaction of the products being used. Make sure you see a doctor if you have any long-term redness, itching, or swelling. That doesn’t happen normally after an oxygen infused facial.
Oxygen Facial Skepticism
So, the question becomes, is an oxygen infused facial really better than a regular one? Or even using skincare products that are effective at home? It all depends on how your skin reacts to an oxygen facial and if you feel it’s worth it. Some people may decide that other traditional treatments at a spa work better, like microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or a Hydrafacial that uses a vacuum-like attachment to decongest the skin and improve skin tone.
Finding what works for you, whether it’s treatments at a medispa, at-home products, or devices is a personal journey. Everyone’s skin is different and what you enjoy in treatments or skincare, may not be what works for someone else’s skin. It’s a bit of an experimental journey, but one that is well worth it when you find the best strategy for more beautiful skin.
Cosmedica Skincare Products with Similar Benefits
There are products that we make at Cosmedica Skincare that will give you similar benefits long-term in comparison to the oxygen infused facial. Finding the right routine will help to give you radiant and glowing skin that you can be happy about when you look in the mirror.
For Brighter Skin and Uneven Skin Tone
Everyone wants brighter skin for more beautiful facial features. That means making sure that the skin is glowing, radiant, and even in texture and tone. You can have all that when using any of our vitamin C products at Cosmedica Skincare. They are geared towards working together to give the skin energy and vibrance. Start with the Vitamin C Facial Cleanser. Used twice a day, this cleanser will remove all impurities and boosts antioxidant repair, just like the oxygen facial does.
Then follow the cleanser with the Vitamin C Super Serum. This is similar to a type of brightening serums that are used in an oxygen facial. Vitamin C in this serum is going to help with cellular turnover, nourish the skin, and reduce the appearance of dark spots in the same way that happens with repeated oxygen facials.
Follow up the serum with our Vitamin C Facial Day Cream. It will boost the skin’s radiance with more antioxidant power that the vitamin C can deliver. You’ll really notice an improvement with immediate results in how bright and clear your skin will be. Make sure that you wear sunscreen daily to keep up with the results of more even skin.
For Plumped Up and Hydrated Skin
One of the main ingredients used in an oxygen facial for intense hydration is hyaluronic acid. We have many products that contain beneficial hyaluronic acid which is able to hold its weight in water up to 1000 times. That makes it bind moisture to the skin, plumping it up, and makes sure that all of the skincare products you are using absorb and work better. Our best-selling product is the Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This is meant to be used after you cleanse and tone, underneath your other serums and moisturizer.
For Cellular Turnover
For cellular turnover, it’s vital that you use our Derma Roller System. This is a microneedling device that is going to promote collagen and elastin production. It also exfoliates the skin so that all of your products absorb better and are more effective. This works in the same way that the oxygen helps to infuse the skin with extra nutrients from the serums and moisturizers that go with the treatment.
When using the derma roller on a regular basis, you’ll notice skin that is much more vibrant, even in tone, and plumped up. This device even comes in a great set called our Hyaluronic + Vitamin C Microneedling Treatment Set. It includes both serums and two microneedling derma rollers. This trio is going to be the closest way to mimic the exact results of an oxygen infused facial right at home.
