What is the OxyGeneo™ Technology?
OxyGeneo™ is an innovative technology that achieves (1) skin exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells from the skin surface), (2) increased skin oxygen levels and (3) infusion of nutrient-rich products deep into the skin. All actions are simultaneous giving the best "bang for the buck" to clients looking for no down-time, no pain, and immediate, cost-effective results.
How does the OxyGeneo™ oxygenate my skin?
OxyGeneo™ capitalizes on the Bohr Effect that was discovered by Christian Bohr in 1904. The effect indicates that when the CO2 (Carbon dioxide) concentration increases, the hemoglobin releases oxygen from within. The OxyGeneo™ interaction between the capsule and the treatment gel creates abundance of CO2 on the skin that triggers the Bohr Effect that oxygenate the skin naturally. Oxygenating the skin is beneficial in all anti-aging and corrective skin procedures since it increases cell metabolism and makes the skin more receptive to the nutrients being infused into the skin.
How does the OxyGeneo™ feel?
An OxyGeneo™ treatment feels like a massage for the face. The exfoliation is described as very refreshing and comfortable and, because there is no vacuum procedure (like with microdermabrasion or dermal infusion machines) the overall treatment is more soothing and relaxing. There may be a slight tingling sensation as the skin becomes more oxygenated but overall the procedure is very relaxing.
How does OxyGeneo™ compare to Microdermabrasion?
The OxyGeneo™ treatment differs from microdermabrasion in many ways:
- microdermabrasion is done "dry" vs OxyGeneo™ which adds the benefit of applying a nutrient-rich gel onto the skin. We get added comfort and cleansing with OxyGeneo™ and the treatment gel is ALWAYS fresh since the product is vacuum sealed for single use only
- OxyGeneo™ does not require a vacuum suction thus decreasing the risk of dilating small capillaries on the face which can cause redness
- clients enjoy the gentle massaging feel of OxyGeneo™ and describe it as more comfortable than microdermabrasion
What should I expect to see and feel after OxyGeneo™ treatment?
After the OxyGeneo™ treatment the skin looks brighter, fresher, and more even in skin tone. Also, pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, and even acne will continue to improve with a series of treatments. The skin feels softer and smoother immediately.
How frequent can I have OxyGeneo™ treatment
Depending on your skin condition and concerns, we may recommend more frequent treatments initially, perhaps once per week. After your skin is optimized, you can maintain your results with an OxyGeneo™ treatment once a month or even once a season. We will set you up with a schedule that best suits your needs.
Can I have OxyGeneo™ treatment to look better before an event?
Yes! The OxyGeneo™ treatment has no downtime and the skin looks and feels great right after the treatment. If you have an upcoming event, schedule your OxyGeneo™ treatment on the same day or a day before and the effect will be well visible during the event.
What are the active ingredients in the nutrient-rich gels?
The NeoBright™ gel contains azaleic acid, kojic acid, and retinol and is the recommended product for pigmentation, brown spots, and acne.
The NeoRevive™ is packed with anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and retinol. This product will rejuvenate your skin immediately for glowing, radiant skin and also helps to reduce pores.
