It’s no secret that humans need oxygen to survive. Oxygen sharpens our concentration, promotes healing, strengthens our heart and supports our bodies in more ways than we can count. So why shouldn’t we give ourselves a little extra where it counts?
Here at Main Street Cosmetic, we have introduced the Oxygen Facial. The treatment means we can provide oxygen directly to the skin to give it that extra boost and the results are fantastic! Let us delve deeper.
What does the treatment involve?
The treatment itself is completely non-surgical, non invasive and not painful whatsoever. A combination of a topical cream and activating serum are absorbed into the skin, invigorating the skin with a direct dosage of oxygen, minerals, and nutrients. As the two topical treatments are combined, they begin to react, forcing the oxygen into the pores.
What happens to my skin during and after the treatment?
The first thing to occur is a gentle exfoliation of the face. This ensures that the skin is free from dirt and excess oils that prohibit the oxygen treatment getting absorbed into the pores successfully. After this is complete, two different topical products are applied to the skin. The first is a thick cream, and after this, we apply the activating serum. The skin will begin to feel warm as the cream and serum combine to work their magic. After 10 minutes the creams are removed and a red LED light mask is placed over the skin for another 20 minutes. Finally, when the red LED light mask has achieved the desired effect, a mixture of nutrients and vitamins are applied to the skin followed by a moisturiser which acts as a protectant, now that the treatment is complete.
What type of results can I expect?
Due to the treatment being completely safe with no risk of major complications, the most you will experience is a little redness. After this disappears, you will be left with smoother, softer skin. The oxygen acts as a catalyst, circulating the blood, promoting the growth of collagen as well as new cells. This forces the skin to replenish and regrow at a faster rate than usual, helping to fight the signs of ageing and therefore encouraging a youthful, healthy complexion. When we combine the oxygen facial with the red LED light treatment, we are increasing our chances of achieving a successful result, as the LED treatment also encourages the growth of cells, collagen and achieves better circulation of the blood. It also helps to calm the skin after the treatment, leaving you feeling relaxed both inside and out.
The best part about the oxygen facial and LED light treatment is that there is no downtime. Unlike other treatments, there is no burning, itching, soreness or extreme change in the appearance of the skin post treatment. The oxygen facial we provide is gentle and calming, achieving a positive result without any harmful or damaging effects to the skin.
