Oxybrasion

Water is the elixir of life, and oxygen is indispensible for life. When these two are so important for life, wouldn’t it be an energizer for the skin too! Oxybrasion treatment involves the combination of oxygen and water to help improve the appearance and texture of the skin. It is a unique procedure that offers the benefits of both microdermabrasion and oxygen therapy.

How does oxyabrasion work?

Oxybrasion is performed by deep exfoliation of dead skin cells with the application of oxygen and saline flow simultaneously. Oxygen helps to enhance the production of collagen fibres and the reconstruction of capillaries, wherein saline disinfects the skin to prevent acne.

When to choose oxybrasion?

The conditions where oxybrasion can be beneficial are:

  • Skin discoloration
  • Wrinkles or fine lines
  • Seborrhea or dry skin
  • Acne
  • Scars and keloids
  • Dull skin
  • Blackheads and milia
  • Enlarged pores
  • Anti-cellulite therapy
  • Skin damage due to sun
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Loose skin
  • Psoriasis
  • Stretch marks

Is the procedure safe?

It is a safe technique that uses water and oxygen to exfoliate skin and improve the texture, circulation, hydration and tone of the skin. The procedure is safe even for pregnant women.

What care should I take after the procedure?

During the procedure, static pressure and a pleasant cool breeze can felt on the skin. There is no recovery time, and hence the patient can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. It is recommended to avoid cosmetics, such as mascara, extension lashes, hair dyeing, sauna, sun beds, and pool or active sports for at least 12 hours after the procedure.

What is the duration of the procedure?

The approximate time for the procedure is around 20 to 30 minutes.

Would I need multiple sessions?

Usually, four facials are recommended once a week to achieve optimum results. However, the total number of sessions depends on the factors, such as skin types and desired results.
