Oxygen Facials – The Facial of the Summer!
Oxygen Facials have become the latest craze in the celebrity world. Everyone from Madonna to Kate Middleton to Justin Timberlake have had this rejuvenating treatment.
Why are oxygen facials so special and what do they do for your skin?
Did you know that on a daily basis we only breathe in 20% oxygen? The Oxygen facial pumps all that pure oxygen that we are missing into our skin.
This facial begins with a spray mist of serum (the machine used resembles an air brusher) that infuses 84-90% pure oxygen deep into your pores and treats the skin at a cellular level. The oxygen then breaks up the molecules so it is forced down and absorbed into the deeper layers of your skin. This hydrating facial is finished off by a premium masque to enhance the benefits of the facial.
I have irritated skin; will this treatment make it worse?
An Oxygen Facial is a cooling facial that is ideal for soothing irritated skin. It kills bacteria as it pumps pure oxygen into your pores, which is something we all need to regenerate and rejuvenate our skin and get that healthy glow. Although this facial is great for all skin types, pure oxygen will help individuals fighting eczema, dryness, acne or irritated red skin.
An Oxygen facial is also a great treatment for brides to receive before their big day. The oxygen will infuse hydration and enhance your skin to keep make-up looking fresh and radiant throughout the day and night.
How often should I get an Oxygen facial?
Oxygen facials can be done as often as you like, but it is recommended that you switch your regimes up. Try a microdermabrasion facial if you are suffering from acne, unwanted lines, or scars and then back to an Oxygen facial to help your skin heal. If you have dry skin, an ElmLine Deep Hydrating facial is a good start, then oxygen facial.
Perfect for summer
Summer days are filled with heat and sun, which can lead to sun burns and skin damage. Our Oxygen Facial is a very cool, soothing facial with no heat factor. It will help your skin heal from the sun exposure endured throughout the summer months!
