OXYGENEO SUPER FACIAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the OxyGeno Facial?
OxyGeneo® is an innovative facial treatment for skin exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells from the skin surface), improving skin oxygen levels and infusion of valuable ingredients to enrich the skin. The simultaneous skin exfoliation along with skin oxygenation optimizes the absorption of the valuable components in the nutrient-rich gels into the skin.
How does the OxyGeneo oxygenate my skin?
OxyGeneo® capitalizes on the Bohr Effect that was discovered by Christian Bohr in 1904. The effect indicates that when CO2 (Carbon dioxide) levels increase, the body releases oxygen from within to balance it out. The OxyGeneo® interaction between the capsule and the treatment gel creates an abundance of CO2 on the skin that triggers the Bohr effect that oxygenates the skin naturally. Oxygenating the skin is beneficial in all anti-aging and corrective skin procedures.
How does the OxyGeneo feel?
An OxyGeneo® treatment feels like a pleasant facial massage. The exfoliation is refreshing and comfortable and because there is no vacuum procedure the overall treatment is more soothing and relaxing. Many clients fall asleep and wake feeling rested and rejuvenated. More sensitive skin type clients may have a warm sensation on the skin during the first part of the treatment.
Can i have the OxyGeneo if i have acne?
Yes. The gentle OxyGeneo® exfoliation does not irritate the skin and as OxyGeneo® does not use a vacuum, it does not affect areas of the face affected by simple acne. Consult with your OxyGeneo® technician about your specific skin concerns.
How often can I have the treatment?
To treat skin issues such as sun damage or acne, it is recommended to have 4-6 weekly treatments followed by a monthly maintenance session.
What should I expect to see and feel after the treatment?
After an OxyGeneo® treatment the skin is rich with oxygen and nutrients from the gels. The face will look smooth, soft, shiny and radiant. The skin will feel fresh and soft and supple.
