Oxygen is one of the most essential requirements for human life. Similar to organs, skin too needs oxygen for the survival and normal function of its component cells. Oxygen helps to produce collagen and elastin, the two proteins that give our skin a firm, healthy, and youthful appearance. In young age, the microcirculation in the skin works optimally and the skin cells get sufficient oxygen to remain viable and function normally. But, as we age, there are alterations in the skin circulation and our skin becomes less efficient at renewing itself, resulting in slower cellular metabolism, breakdown of collagen and elastin, and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. These changes are expedited by external effects of UV irradiation, air pollution, diet, and stress and can make the skin look dull and dry.
In early days, oxygen was delivered using dry oxygen application techniques in which the client wore a face mask or inhaled oxygen. However, this was soon replaced with nebulizers then took over as the preferred application vehicle for administering oxygen skin care due to their disbursement capabilities, reasonable cost and easy clean-up features. These plastic or glass devices create a mist of fine particulate solution for infusion into the dermis. In oxygen facial, the oxygen is compressed and sprayed at high pressure directly on to the skin surface. In this method, a “serum” of active ingredients such as nutrients or vitamins is introduced into the oxygen stream and the combined oxygen and ingredients in the form of a high pressure jet forces its way past the skins barrier defense systems and in to the lower levels of the epidermis. Very recently, with a cutting edge technology with very few reputable labs been successful utilizing the active ingredient Perfluorocarbons to deliver large volumes of oxygen into dermis. This active ingredient is as well as used in field of medicine and science for its notable use in artificial blood substitute and in liquid breathing. Our Oxygen Micro Plama infusion contains the very Perflurocarbon with optimal % , delivered topically where the plasma molecules once in, they are diffused delivering enormous amount of oxygen into skin’s multi layers and capillaries that do not receive oxygen and will displace carbon dioxide to promote propagation of new cells.
