Why is oxygen such an important treatment?

Oxygen is Vital for the Health of the Skin Cells.

Oxygen is Vital for Skin Survival. These cells go through an optimal period where the cell is in full function and reaches homeostasis. During this time, the cells are metabolically running like a well-oiled machine. This is when cellular mitosis happens, so the cells will reproduce at a much more rapid rate.

So, when oxygen flow is not at this optimal state, it causes problems on many levels. Such as, on an epidermal level, oxygen loss affects cellular nourishment and mitosis, Leading to extremely slow cell turnover. Beyond the epidermis, the lack of oxygen can be felt in the Dermis as it obstructs fibroblasts synthesis, which is what produces collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans like Hyaluronic Acid. This leads to a weakened acid mantle and a complexion that appears dull and greyish.

What causes cells to become depleted of Oxygen? The first offender would be free radicals, which are unstable molecules looking to stabilize themselves by grabbing an electron from your healthy cell. Free radicals include pollution, smoking, and most importantly UV Radiation. This causing oxidative stress on your cells and leads them vulnerable and you might start to notice the lack of collagen and elastin in the skin. We see this visually as we age, our skin doesn’t have the tightness and firmness it once had.

So, putting all this together, Skin For Life has come up with a free radical fighter with their Oxygen Infusion Treatment. Our goal is to support the immune and overall health of the cell.  Our formulations include many types of antioxidants which are free-radical fighters.

Antioxidants Equal Skin Survival

Antioxidants work by giving an electron to the unstable free-radical. It stabilizes the molecule and is no longer a threat to the skin cell.  We use a trademarked delivery system, LSS™. A Bio-emulsion nano-lipid technology that consists of ingredients that the cellular membrane can relate to. Therefore, we get better penetration through the cellular membrane wall using this nanoemulsion.

As a fellow esthetician, I see how cellular health makes a massive impact on how the skin looks and feels. Performing result-oriented skin treatments allow licensed professionals to deliver vital nutrients. You see improvement in texture, thickness, pigmentation, and allover skin glow!

However, depending on your clients’ skin goals you may use oxygen infusion treatments twice a week for three weeks, once a week, every two weeks or once a month. Because licensed professionals know Healthy Skin is the Best Foundation!
