Spas serving up celebrity secret to dewy skin: oxygen facials


From spa treatments to moisturizers, oxygen is the latest buzzword. But does your skin need extra O2? Here’s the scoop on the newest luxury treatment popping up in spas around the globe: oxygen facials.

Oxygen facials combat visible signs of aging, so the claim goes, linked to “poor conveyance of oxygen from subcutaneous capillaries to the surface of the skin,” says online spa industry news and information website Spa Finder.

What is it?

The facial involves a stream of high-pressurized oxygen infused with botanical, vitamin, mineral, and nutrient extracts applied to the face and neck. Spas that offer the treatment use a machine that delivers the hyperbaric oxygen and moisturizers in a pressurized burst.

The effect

Expect a smoother, plumper look with a healthy glow. According to Bella Sugar, stars Madonna, Michelle Williams and Emma Stone credit their dewy good looks to oxygen facials.

Other luxury spa treatments making waves include cryogenic chamber therapy, popularized by celebrities who swear by its muscle and joint healing effect. Clients bravely enter a -90C chamber, in their skivvies no less, for about three teeth-chattering minutes.

Flotation spas are another popular trend in the US, with entrepreneurial spa owners offering pools to simulate the Dead Sea hii29vr. Clients float effortlessly in heated pools full of Epsom salts, allowing total relaxation.

Do Oxygen Facials Really Work?

All about the pre-event skincare treatment that celebrities swear by.

We all know celebrities have more than a few tricks up their sleeves for looking party-ready and picture-perfect. (And you’re especially aware of this if you’ve been reading our before and after series.) But aside from the little plastic surgery tweaks and Restylane jabs, one of the biggest celebrity beauty secrets is the oxygen facial.

You’ve probably had one yourself, or at least heard of them, since they’ve been around for a decade now at spas, medi-spas and select dermatologist’s and plastic surgeon’s offices. While the basic mechanism has remained the same—a pressurized stream of oxygen that delivers active ingredients to the skin—the quality of those actives has recently been upgraded from basic moisturizers to fancy stuff like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides (but more on that in a sec).

Celebs love ’em because they make skin look more plumped-up and glowy before a performance or red carpet appearance. So with party season coming up, should YOU follow suit with an oxygen facial before the big events in your life? Let’s investigate!

What is an oxygen facial?

I’ve had a few oxygen facials over the years, most recently a few months back at Toronto’s Ritual spa when Madonna’s makeup artist and Intraceuticals spokesperson Gina Brooke was in town. (You may remember Gina from this Make Up For Ever event last year, another brand that she works with and loves.)

Gina Brooke Intraceuticals

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. This is their fancy machine:

I got to sit down for a chat with Gina before my treatment. “We’re using oxygen under pressure to deliver a special serum with low molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to the skin,” she told me. “In Australia, they were using this system to deliver chemotherapy to skin cancer patients. The delivery system is incredible.”

What to expect at an oxygen facial

Here’s how a typical appointment will go down. Since oxygen facials are usually offered in more medical environments, you shouldn’t expect the same frou-frou extras you’d get with a regular facial (which you already know my feelings on, anyway). There’s no aromatherapy, no facial massage, no ritualistic product-layering like you get at a luxury spa. It’s a much more no-nonsense, results-oriented approach.

After ushering you into the treatment room, your aesthetician will first cleanse (and usually exfoliate) your skin.

Facial cleansing the skin

Then she (or he; you never know!) will analyze your skin to determine which infusion would suit you best. This is the new innovation versus Intraceuticals’ earlier version of the treatment, which was one size—er, serum—fits all.

There are four treatment options, each 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.
  • Opulence helps uneven skin tone look brighter and more luminous.
  • Clarity calms acne while restoring moisture balance and defending against future breakouts.
  • Atoxelene is a needle-free Botox alternative that helps to soften and firm expression lines, define the eye contour and plump the lips.

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.

The infusion of your choice is first sprayed on your skin and then the oxygen is delivered via a wand that looks like this:

Intraceuticals oxygen facial

The device—which “is very similar to a makeup artist airbrush gun,” says Gina—emits a continuous flow of 90 to 95 percent pure oxygen under hyperbaric pressure (compared to the 18 to 21 percent naturally in our environment). This is said to enhance the absorption of the serums so you theoretically get more benefit from the ingredients. Oxygen is also naturally antibacterial and has a cooling, calming effect.

The infusing feels like a blast of cold air on the skin, with a slight pressure but nothing painful or uncomfortable. Once your aesthetician slowly makes his or her way around your entire face with the wand, you’ll get one of their topical serums and/or creams applied on top (a process Intraceuticals calls “hyaluronic layering”).

The whole process takes about 30-60 minutes, and then you can also buy products to help maintain your results at home. The brand has recently come out with four booster serums that you can mix and match to customize your regimen:

Intraceuticals Boosters

  • The Vitamin C+3 Booster is for all skin types and helps even out irregular skin tone and sun damage.
  • The Collagen+ Booster is packed with peptides for restoring volume and tightness to skin that’s lost elasticity, tone and density.
  • The Vitamin A+ Booster “is great for oily or acneic skin, or if you have really visible pores,” says Gina. “It also helps resurface fine lines and wrinkles like a traditional retinol product. It’s been formulated to have a buffer, so it’s not as irritating as other retinols.”
  • The Antioxidant+ Booster is Gina’s favourite. “It really does give your skin that boost when it looks tired and kind of sad, the same way you would drink a green juice when you feel blah. It also has more natural ingredients than the others.”

I’m a bit of a serum junkie, so I LOVE the concept of these and that you can use different ones depending on what your skin needs. I’m a longtime user of SkinCeuticals’ antioxidant serums, as well as various vitamin A topicals, so it’s very exciting to have new alternatives that are of similar quality and equally lightweight!

Oxygen facial benefits

So does the oxygen facial actually work? Well, speaking from my own experience, the short-term proof is in the mirror. Every time I’ve had an oxygen facial, the results were instant and noticeable. You really do glow when you walk outta there.

But Gina can probably talk it up better than I can. Over to her:

Gina Brooke

“I found Intraceuticals in 2004 at a time when I was doing mostly beauty campaigns and lots of the models and celebrities were showing up on set and their skin was… not the best. For example, some of them had not just dehydrated skin but acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis. And no matter what I did, I couldn’t make the skin look as beautiful as I wanted to. No matter what makeup, it just didn’t help. I tried expensive creams; I tried non-expensive creams; nothing seemed to work.

“So I called a doctor friend of mine and I told her my problem and she said, ‘Oh, I have this amazing system from Australia; come and I’ll prove it to you.’ I’m very skeptical. She did one side of my face and then showed me a mirror and I looked at the other side, untouched. It was a remarkable difference. It looked healthy, like I just came back from vacation. I thought wow, this is amazing but let me see how it is with makeup. Will it work? I went home, I did my makeup and it looked beautiful.

“It’s like working on a clean canvas. When your skin is dry, your makeup lays on top of it and you can’t actually see the skin through it. After I do an Intraceuticals treatment, makeup looks like second skin celebrex price. It doesn’t look like makeup. So when you’re painting over the face, it’s just like a clean canvas and the makeup looks more beautiful, the skin’s more hydrated, it’s tighter, it’s smoother, it’s more plump, it’s firm.”

Celebrity fans of the oxygen facial

Obviously celebs 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 (!!). Injectables aside, you have to admit that her skin tone and texture look amazing. She is 55 years old, BTW:

Madonna, W.E. premiere, London, 2012

Victoria Beckham, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel and (shocker) Kim Kardashian also all own their own oxygen machines.

Kim Kardashian, Elton John AIDS Foundation viewing party, 2013

And guess what? Gina’s the one who introduced them to it, after test-driving the procedure on herself.

“I thought, okay, I’m going to introduce this to some of my clients. Everyone from Madonna to Katy Perry to Justin Timberlake to Victoria Beckham to Naomi Campbell, they all discovered it and they were shocked at how amazing it was. They said, ‘Wow, I’ve never tried anything like this’ or ‘I noticed my skin change drastically for the better.’”

Katy Perry, MTV Europe Music Awards, 2013

“Most celebrities have it done more often [than the recommended treatment schedule] because they’re on planes every day, and it just zaps all the moisture out of your skin. So in that case, for example Madonna or Justin Timberlake or Katy Perry, these people take it on tour with them. They have to do a treatment every day or every other day so that their skin looks incredible on stage.”

I asked Gina if it was possible to overdo it by having too many treatments, but she said no. “I’ve been using it since 2004 and I have never had anything negative happen; in fact, I’ve only had the best results.” There are no side effects and it’s safe for all ages and skin types.

Victoria Beckham, Glamour Awards, 2013

What’s extremely compelling is the long list of unpaid celebrity testimonials, which you can see on Intraceuticals’ website. “Not one person was paid a single penny. You can’t say any other skincare brand on the market that has a list of the most iconic celebrities in the world who swear by Intraceuticals, yet they haven’t been paid.”

Naomi Campbell, launch of The Face, 2013

“My clients like to say, it’s instant gratification. Because when I’m working on set, I don’t have the luxury of waiting three weeks for a product to work. I need something right away, especially for someone who has eczema or psoriasis or rosacea. It calms the skin, it gets rid of redness, it tightens, it firms, it plumps the skin.

“I even have photographers and producers asking me to bring it on video shoots. Normally there’s a $20,000 to $100,000 budget for visual imaging. There’s a guy that sits in front of a computer screen and frame for frame, he’s cleaning every little section of the face to make sure it looks flawless. Since I’ve been using Intraceuticals, it’s cut the retouching budget in half. After I do the skin treatment, the skin looks like it’s been airbrushed. It’s incredible.”

Oxygen facials versus invasive treatments

So why would you splurge on a series of oxygen facials when you could just deal with the signs of aging by going under the needle—or knife? Here’s Gina’s take:

“I’m all for making oneself feel better, whether it’s filler or anything. But in Hollywood and in general, there are people who’ve taken it way too far. I think why people love the treatment so much is because it makes you look like a better version of yourself. You look like you’ve just come back from vacation; you look well-rested. It’s non-invasive and you don’t have to worry if there’s going to be any kind of problem after the treatment.”

How long do the oxygen facial results last?

Unfortunately, not that long considering treatments typically cost around $150 to $200; higher than the average traditional facial. Gina says your skin will look “incredible” for four to seven days—which is fine if you’re doing it for a special occasion, but don’t expect to notice any lasting results from a single treatment.

“It’s ideal for women who are getting married, because they get married, they go on their honeymoon and their skin is glowing for days,” says Gina and I agree with this. It would also be great as prep for a series of holiday parties, New Year’s Eve, a school reunion or anything else that requires your complexion to be in tip-top shape.

I just don’t think it’s realistic for the average non-celebrity person to afford the number of sessions you need for longer-term results. The brand says there is a cumulative benefit from regular treatments and recommends doing one facial per week for a period of six weeks, and then once a month thereafter to maintain your results. Obviously, celebrities can totally afford this (a minimum $900 investment before you go on maintenance mode) but most people, no.

Do oxygen facials cause inflammation?

There are other concerns about oxygen facials besides the cost. I first wrote about the treatment in the late ’00s for ELLE Canada, and the dermatologists I interviewed for that article told me the plumped-up glow was not from the oxygen or the hyaluronic acid at all… but instead from the irritation and inflammation of the skin.

The exact same view was noted by a dermatologist quoted in this 2006 New York Times article:

“The concept that high-pressure oxygen would do anything to help the skin is such nonsense as to be laughable,” said Dr. Zachary, who has not examined the oxygen-compression machine himself.

He suggested that the plumping or swelling effect might be mild inflammation caused by the blasts of compressed oxygen. “If you wanted puffy eyes, you could also go out for a hard night’s drinking,” he said.

Oh noes. And as Dr. Fredric Brandt also points out, there is no scientific proof that the oxygen actually drives the nutrients deeper into the skin or has any other skin benefit.

It’s funny, though. Since that time, I can’t tell you how many derms and plastic surgeons have started offering the treatments in their own offices and medi-spas… which sort of makes one question their credibility. Did they change their minds on its effectiveness or are they just trying to make money? Hmm….

Do oxygen facials cause free radical damage?

The other concern is that oxygen itself promotes the creation of free radicals—a key contributor to aging—and so why would you deliberately want to make more of them right on your face?

I have to say, this part worries me the most. Have you ever noticed how the beauty biz perpetuates these conflicting positions on oxygen? On the one hand, it’s enemy number one and we have ANTIoxidant skincare products galore to prevent an aging Armageddon. But then we’re also supposed to “oxygenate” our tissues with these treatments for skincare benefits. Doesn’t make a whole lotta sense

Here’s the brand’s response: “There is no evidence that oxygen treatments cause free radical damage; in fact most scientists and physicians argue that even if topical oxygen could penetrate the skin it would be such an insignificant amount; basically no more than your daily exposure to oxygen.”

Fair enough, but here’s where I stand:

The bottom line

For me, oxygen facials will remain more of a special occasion thing—since I don’t have a celebrity-style bank account—and so I don’t think the temporary inflammation or potential free radical damage is anything too major to worry about. (If I were Madonna, having this done every day? Well, then I’d probably be a little concerned.)

But getting the treatments just a few times a year is likely no problem. And really, you can’t argue with the short-term results. They.Are.Amazing. Just look at Miranda Kerr here:

Miranda Kerr - Romeo & Juliet Broadway opening night, 2013

Or Jenna Dewan-Tatum:

Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Vanity Fair Oscar party, 2013

Now, if I were seriously concerned about dull, aging skin and had upwards of $900 to spend on improvements, I have to be honest. I’d probably invest in other things before oxygen facials—even if there were no concerns about free radicals and skin inflammation. Yes, the testimonials are amazing, but I’d likely prioritize my money towards filler, Botox or Fraxel treatments first. I see the facials as more of a secondary add-on to interventions that produce more dramatic and longer-lasting results.

Next week, I’ll be talking about a NEW treatment that’s a twist on the oxygen facial but for some doctors, is actually replacing it because they think it’s even better. Stay tuned—and in the meantime, let’s talk about this!

Have your say

Have you ever had an oxygen facial?
Do you think it has real skin benefits or do the free radicals and inflammation worry you?
Would you invest in a series of treatments or would you rather spend your “skincare money” elsewhere?

Types of Permanent Makeup For Your Face

The most popular types of permanent makeup for your face involve your eyebrows, lips, cheeks, and your eyelids. Eyebrows are particularly common because hairless eyebrows are all-too-common, your eyebrow hair grows too fast (creating “unibrows,” if left untended), or it’s problematic to need to apply eyebrow makeup daily.

What Is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup is really a series of “cosmetic tattoos.” The process is usually called “micropigmentation.” Proponents of permanent makeup welcome the minimization of the time and hassle of putting on makeup daily to their face.

Those supporting permanent makeup typically want a softer, natural-looking appearance they get from applying and removing daily makeup products.

Many people become permanent makeup aficionados because their facial skin is allergic to various makeup types or participate in active sports activities regularly. They no longer need to worry about their makeup running or “sweating off” as they pursue their sporting activities, whether biking, playing tennis, soccer, or enjoying aerobics.

How Is the Permanent Makeup Process Accomplished?

There are a variety of processes to create permanent makeup, typically dependent on classic tattoo procedures and devices. Among the processes used to affect permanent makeup are the following products and procedures.

  • Initial consultation with a permanent makeup specialist;
  • Application of the desired pigment via traditional tattoo coil machines, special pens, rotary machines, or digital rotary machines.
  • Follow up visits to assess the process success and healing; and
  • Analyze the pigment color to see if it needs darkening or lightening.
  • Is Permanent Makeup Truly Permanent?

    Whether you make your eyebrows, eyelids (with eyeliner), lips, or other facial types of permanent makeup (camouflaging scars, beauty marks, imitation hair, or lash enhancement), these are considered permanent. A pigment is tattooed on the top dermal layer of your skin and you cannot wash off the pigment.

    However, like other tattoos and pigment infusion, permanent makeup is subject to fading over time and sun exposure. Since this cosmetic process is applied to your face, it may be more prone to fading than other tattoos. You may need to “refresh” your permanent makeup in the future to maintain the color you want.

    If you want subtle or dramatic, vibrant colors, you may need refreshing either more sparingly or more frequently than other people. It makes little difference what type of application was initially used to create the type of permanent makeup you want. You can compare the types of cosmetic permanent makeup to tinted hair color or faded colors on deck/patio umbrellas consistently exposed to the sun.

    Is Permanent Makeup For You?

    Permanent makeup comes in various “flavors” and types. Most of the different types involve the areas you want to be covered and the application method you choose. For example, if you want your lips to be a specific color, one application method may be superior to another based on your natural skin pigmentation click reference.

    Your cosmetic professional can advise you the best type of permanent makeup for you. Experienced permanent makeup technicians become knowledgeable about the different types of procedures that generate the most permanence and enhancement.

    Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

    Unwanted body hair is a common problem among both men and women and can be a source of embarrassment and social rejection.

    With today’s laser hair removal technology, you can permanently remove unwanted hair in just a few sessions. Session duration and laser strength will vary per individual. However, for many people, laser hair removal has removed the need for shaving and waxing.

    Here are some of the main benefits of laser hair removal over other types of hair removal:

    Cheaper in the Long Run Than Temporary Hair Removal

    While laser hair removal is more expensive upfront than wax strips or a cheap epilator, you will save money over the long term due to its lasting permanence. This removes the need for razors and shaving, both of which can be more costly over a cumulative long-term period.

    Faster Than Other Permanent Hair Removal Methods

    Since the laser can target many hairs at the same time, it is not nearly as tedious as electrolysis, which requires each individual hair to be electrocuted and then removed with tweezers bupropion online. Instead, the laser automatically hones in on a patch of hairy skin and destroys the follicles.

    Although laser hair removal can take many sessions over many months to result in complete hair removal, the sessions are faster and often less painful that electrolysis.

    Targets Only Hair And Not Skin

    Because they target only the hair, the rest of your surrounding tissue is left mostly undamaged. Compare this to waxing which rips off thin layers of skin every time and may leave you bleeding from your follicles; or shaving, which can damage the skin and result in more acne or even scarring.

    For clients who are looking to remove hair without skin tissue damage, six or seven sessions of laser beats are preferable to home hair removal methods. It may be worth a few moments of pain for a lifetime of clean skin.

    Laser hair removal is a tried and tested hair removal method that removes the need for shaving and other inconvenient grooming procedures. For a free laser hair removal consultation, consult Skin Care By Coreen by today and find out which procedures are best for your hair type.

    Although Micro-Needling is mostly applied on the face, it is equally applicable on other body parts as well. It can also be applied on all skin types like ethnic skin and sensitive skin. The key purpose of this treatment is to improve skin texture, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. This treatment is performed with stainless steel micro-needles. The length of these needles ranges from 0.5 mm to 1.5 mm. However, when it comes to treating scars, the length of the needle can be up to 2 mm.

    Various clinical studies have shown that Collagen Induction Treatment works on the dermis of the skin and stimulates the production of natural collagen and proteins.

Collagen Induction Treatment is completely safe and does not cause any damage to the skin. It also helps to restore natural-looking skin. The downtime of this treatment is zero.

    The number of treatments may depend on the individual. Normally, three treatments are Nike Jace Amaro Jersey required for the best results. However, if scarring is being treated, it may take up to 5 to 6 treatments. The gap between the treatments is 5 to 6 weeks in general.

    Laser Hair Removal Treatment

    The three important phases of laser hair removal service

    Before taking a plunge into laser hair removal, women should know the pros and cons of the process. However, this won’t be fair enough if I say only women (though they are pretty much higher in review numbers) undergo the service, there are men too who prefer laser hair removal over temporary solutions like waxing and shaving. But it seems to be a preoccupation for the women only since their high school days.

    Lots of others alternatives are available in the market to help you get rid of unexpected body hairs but none of those are half as effective as laser hair removal. Though the conventional concept about the service is that any laser treatment is as effective as this one, the reality is completely different.

    Pre-treatment: You must make sure that you are clean shaven on the body parts that are to be laser-removed. More so, you need to go makeup-free, perfume-free, and hair-free on the targeted places. This means you must shave beforehand! Thus, you help the laser get to the follicle without any obstructions by hair strands.

    During the treatment: During the session, different parts of your body will be sectioned with marker and then a laser will be applied. Among the different laser types, OPT SHR is the most suitable one. This rapid pulsing laser doesn’t cause any pain on the skin and doesn’t need any numbing creams. You will not feel the heat at all!

    Post treatment: Right after the laser hair removal therapy, you need to make sure that you don’t hit the gym or get any closer to hot showers and baths. The skin remains uber sensitive for about 24 hours and then you can get back to your normal life. Using SPF is also recommended if you don’t want to get pigmentation in your skin.
