oxygen facial benefits intraceuticalsSpa Sophia is proud to offer the Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial, also known as the “red carpet facial.” Made famous by Madonna, the oxygen facial is a celebrity favorite, especially popular with actors right before they have to appear on HD cameras or at red carpet events. But what is the oxygen facial exactly, and why is it so popular? Let Spa Sophia explain all about the oxygen facial benefits…

The oxygen facial consists of a painless, non-invasive application of pure oxygen, vitamins, moisturizer and anti-oxidants to the skin through an airbrush. In combination with a mask containing hyaluronic acid, the oxygen facial achieves a great number of beauty benefits. These are the biggest:

1. There are No Side Effects

Since the oxygen and nutrients are atom sized and applied through an airbrush, the oxygen facial is a completely painless and non-invasive procedure. In contrast to some other facials, the oxygen facials therefore doesn’t come with any side-effects.

2. Results are Immediate

The results of an oxygen facial are immediately visible, which is why it’s so popular with actors and other celebrities. No more waiting for redness or blotchiness to fade.

3. It’s a Great Foundation for Make-Up

An oxygen facial makes your skin a lot smoother and softer, which makes it a perfect foundation for applying make-up. Unlike many other facials that  require you to stay make-up free for at least 24 hours, the oxygen facial allows for make-up to be applied right away.

4. Your Skin Looks Younger & Smoother

The pure oxygen that’s applied to your skin increases its absorption of nutrients and anti-oxidants, as well as hyaluronic acid. The application of a hyaluronic acid solution is part of the oxygen facial, and increases moisture absorption of your skin. All these things lead to a skin that’s more plump and less wrinkly, making you look younger and your complexion brighter.

5. It Increases Collagen Production

The airbrush application of oxygen to the skin increases blood circulation, which in turn is believed to increase collagen production. As many beauty fans already know, collagen is a main component of youthful looking skin. It’s like a glue that increases skin elasticity and firmness. As we grow older we lose collagen proteins, which is why we develop wrinkles, so the boost in collagen production is a great benefit!
