Who Can Use OxyGeneo Therapy in West Palm Beach, FL?
Anyone 14 years or older can visit our West Palm Beach beauty clinic for the oxygen procedure. People at this age and higher have already developed various skin characteristics. Therefore, they are not susceptible to increased inflammation due to the procedure. However, users below the age of 18 may need the consent of a guardian.
This procedure is safe for use on all skin types. It hydrates oily skin, relaxes dry skin, and generally brightens the skin. Unlike the traditional oxygenation procedures, this process does not push oxygen into the skin, which helps reduce reddening and sensitivity. Instead, it uses Bohr Effect to activate the body to oxygenate the skin from within the body.
The treatment gels start by interacting with the tip of the wand used for application. Then, it causes the formation of carbon dioxide bubbles on the skin surface upon application. These bubbles act as ‘magnets’ that pull oxygen molecules from the body by causing the oxygen-rich blood to rush to the surface and oxygenate your skin.
What to Expect During the OxyGeneo Facial Procedure
When you visit our West Palm Beach or North Palm Beach clinic, a beautician will first clean your face to remove dirt, debris, and makeup. Then, they will ask you to choose the gel to use for the procedure. There are two types of gels, namely:
- Illumniate: Reduces hyperpigmentation and brightens the skin.
- Revive: An anti-aging gel that helps deal with fine lines by puffing the skin.
- Balance: Removes dirt and impurities, fights acne, reduces pore size, and balances oily skin.
- Detox: Fights against environmental factors, soothes irritated skin, and boosts cellular renewal.
- Hydrate: Refresh and replenish dry, dull skin and enhance your skins moisture retention.
The beautician will then apply a generous amount of the gel on the face and buff it with a Capsugen (the device used to massage the face). They will then work your entire face for a thorough exfoliation.
After the beautician is done exfoliating your skin, they will infuse the antioxidant into it. They do this by re-applying the gel onto your face and working it onto the skin with relaxed movements of the Capsugen. After a few minutes of massaging the skin, the extra gel is toweled off, and you are good to go.
Are there any Side Effects?
You may feel some slight irritation, redness, and tightness on the face. However, these should resolve within 72 hours. The tingling should subside within a few hours, too. Beware that the skin may be susceptible to sunburn, therefore, wear plenty of sunscreen when going outdoors.
Finally, follow the home skin treatment advice you get from your beautician to ensure the best results. You should also not use aggressive exfoliating products within seven days after the procedure. However, you can continue with your daily routine soon after visiting our clinic. There are also no restrictions to the skincare products you can apply on your face (except for exfoliation), and you can work out just like before.
