One of the reasons why this treatment has become so popular is because an oxygen facial has little to no risk of serious side effects that often occur with so many other professional skin care treatments. People with very sensitive or damaged skin may experience some redness, but it is usually temporary.
What does oxygen do for skin?
Without oxygen, all cells will die almost immediately, including skin cells. As we age, our bodies, and especially our skin, lose their ability to retain and utilize oxygen for normal metabolic (formation of new cells) processes. Add to this, the effects of stress, pollution, smoking, poor diet and lack of exercise and you have a serious oxygen deficiency in the skin. The oxygen molecules attach themselves to the red blood cells, as well as the collagen and elastin fibers to stimulate production of healthy new cells, and to increase the strength and suppleness of the skin.
