Oxygen Facials

Skin Inspiration Advanced Skin and Laser Clinic uses both Echo 2 Oxygen and Intraceuticals O2  treatments to provide extra support with oxygen for the skin. These oxygen therapies are a luxurious marriage of state of the art oxygen technology and restorative relaxation. These unique skin care treatments simultaneously infuse moisture, vitamins, and anti-oxidants into the skin using cool, calming, topical hyperbaric oxygen.

Fitting for all skin types, oxygen facials provide luminous hydration, a healthy glow and visible age defying results. Oxygen therapy addresses one of the major underlying causes of fine lines, wrinkles,and visible skin degradation caused by premature ageing. Oxygen treatments are also able to support acne treatments as it is anti-inflammatory and will destroy P.acnes bacteria. As we age our ability to absorb oxygen from the atmosphere decreases resulting in a breakdown in the regeneration process. Oxygen plays a role in collagen synthesis, and a lack of oxygen can make the skin thinner and wrinkled, thus accelerating the ageing process.

After the skin is prepared with both microdermabrasion and enzymes/AHA’s a combination of vitamins, minerals, peptides and hyaluronic serum is massaged into the skin and a fine, even mist of hospital grade oxygen under hyperbaric pressure is then infused for 10 minutes.

Oxygen Facials can be performed weekly and may also be added into regular facial treatments in order to boost skin rejuvenation treatments and relaxation. There is no downtime or recovery for the oxygen treatments and the skin will immediately glow with improved hydration and radiance.

Light Emitting Diodes (LED)

Sunlight causes wrinkles, among other kinds of damage, but a different kind of light, specifically the red glow from LED’s, may help to smooth them out by altering the interactions between water and elastic proteins in the skin.

Light therapy is a gentle process by which energy is delivered to the skin via light emitting diodes and is absorbed by the cells for therapeutic benefits through a process called Photobiomodulation. The near infrared wavelengths penetrate the skin and stimulate different metabolic activities, providing the energy cells need to activate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), new collagen and elastin increase circulation leaving your skin healthier, radiant and younger looking with progressive treatments.

Conditions Treated

The Revitalight LED machine will treat sensitive, acne, scarred, bruised and even healthy skin. It is an advantageous treatment following surgery to help reduce bruising and swelling as it acts as an anti-inflammatory and assists with circulatory disorders. Rosacea and sensitive skins also benefit from LED therapy again due to the action on reducing inflammation.

How is it Performed

The relaxing treatment starts with the LED wands at the neck near the lymph glands, and then gradually moving up and over the face over a 10 minute session. Most people relax and even sleep through this procedure. In order to achieve a desired result the treatment should be repeated 3-4 times a week for 4-6 weeks. Revitalight can be added into any facial treatment to add further health and radiance to the skin.

Large Pores

Pores are essential to your skin’s health by providing oil to keep the skin soft and hydrated. However, you don’t necessarily want to be reminded of their existence every time you look in the mirror. Pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are. While it isn’t possible to permanently shrink large pores, there are a number of ways to make them less noticeable.

Causes

There are 2 main factors that contribute to large pores: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Blackheads are also a big contributor to large pores. When the pore becomes clogged by dirt and bacteria, oil within the pore begins to accumulate, causing the pore’s diameter to expand.

Treatments

Unfortunately, there is no way to permanently shrink large pores. The good news is that the appearance of large pores can be greatly reduced in a number of ways. In order to prescribe a clinical treatment and homecare maintenance a consultation by a qualified aesthetician is necessary. Treatments that may be appropriate are Microdermabrasion, Peels, Pixel Fractional Laser or a combination of these treatments.

Tips for Skin with Large Pores

  1. exfoliate with a prescribed toning lotion and gauze and buffing beads
  2. use a retinol and or AHA/BHA serums
  3. start your makeup with a makeup primer or YoungBlood Rice Setting Powder
  4. Use a YoungBlood Mineral Powder for your foundation as the translucent effect will make the pores appear less visible and the skin tone will appear more even
