So many celebrities have been buzzing about a “Red Carpet Ready” facial called an Oxygen Facial.  You may or may not have heard of this amazing treatment, but if you haven’t had one YOU SHOULD!

What is an Oxygen Facial?

An Oxygen Facial is a treatment where oxygen from a medical Oxygen Concentrator is sprayed over the face.   Oxygen from a medical Oxygen Concentrator is in its purest form! At Avila Skin Studio, this treatment is paired with pure Hyaluronic Acid and Vicktoria DeAnn peptides to feed the skin the nutrients that it needs.  Combining the Oxygen and the serums, the results are an immediate brightening of the skin, refined pore size, plumped and hydrated skin, increased circulation and skin tone, and a lessened appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Who can benefit from an Oxygen Facial?

Anyone really!  Oxygen facials are extremely healing and gentle on the skin.  They are designed for all skin types and concerns.  They can be done as often as you like, but customizing your facials and switching things up is recommended. Try a dermafile facial while still infusing the oxygen if you are suffering from acne, unwanted lines, or scars and then back to a single Oxygen facial to help your skin heal. If you have dry or sensitive skin, a repair peptide can be used and Hyaluronic Acid infused into the skin along with the oxygen for a super healing hydrating facial.  Enzymes and Peels are great to change things up and be used in conjunction with the Oxygen.  The options are endless and your Esthetician should be the one to determine what to do and what is best for your needs and skin type.

What is it like to receive an Oxygen Facial?

Again, this treatment is customized to each client’s skin, but usually entails: a thorough skin cleaning to start.  Next, the skin is exfoliated with either a manual exfoliant, a holistic form of dermabrasion called a dermafile, a mild to strong enzyme or a peel.  Next, a massage will relax the client and prepare the skin for the infusion of the Oxygen.   The skin is then analyzed to figure out what type of serums would best benefit that particular client’s needs and extractions are done if necessary.

The actual Oxygen infusion consists of an airbrush type of apparatus that blows out pure oxygen.   This is a delivery system for the skin to absorb the customized peptides or serums that will be infused into the skin.   Oxygen itself is antibacterial, and provides a cooling and calming effect for the skin and the client due to it actually being blown onto the skin.   Most clients feel refreshed after this facial, and has an added benefit that it is a great hangover treatment if you want to physically breathe in the pure oxygen!  After the Oxygen treatment, SPF is massaged onto the client’s skin and the treatment is finished.

How much will this treatment cost?

At Avila Skin Studio, this treatment lasts 75 min and the cost of a session including a full facial along with the Oxygen treatment is $95.

So many clients are looking toward more natural treatments or more cost effective services.  The Peptide Infused Oxygen treatment is an amazing alternative to more drastic treatments for that concerned client.  It is safe for everyone and the results are immediate and can last up to 2-3 weeks depending on the client’s aftercare…..hence the reference “The Red Carpet Facial”!
