Why the oxygen facial treatment is the best thing that could happen to your skin this spring?
Intraceuticals is an Australian company that first pioneered the treatment in 2002 and still has the biggest following. They have a few competitors now, but the main difference is that with their facial, you're not just getting a stream of oxygen; it literally pushes high-tech skincare ingredients into your skin as well.
We're using oxygen under pressure to deliver a special serum with low molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to the skin. The serum featuring a targeted blend of hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts, antioxidants, peptides and/or vitamins. Rejuvenate diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing overall hydration.
The key ingredient is really the hyaluronic acid, a molecule that is found naturally in our skin (and is also the substance in most injectable fillers); it attracts and binds moisture, therefore helping skin look firmer and more hydrated.
Obviously celebrities were the first to get on board, since they're being photographed all the time, and Madonna is the most famous fan of all. She always travels with her $14,200 Intraceuticals oxygen machine and also has one in each of her six homes. Victoria Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Kim Kardashian also all own their own oxygen machines.<< SpaClinique London Blog
