Oxygen Therapy - The New Buzz in the Beauty Industry

by Livia Mercer

You might have heard a lot about oxygen therapy in the media lately. It certainly has become the new buzz word in the industry. With celebrities such as Madonna, Heather Locklear, Donatella Versace and Gwen Stefani endorsing it and Madonna is even reported to have a machine in her home, there is certainly a lot of interest in this treatment.


So what is Oxygen Therapy and how does it work? We all need oxygen. We are surrounded by it. We breathe it in. Oxygen is the ultimate life support ingredient, helping cells to survive, reproduce and regenerate.


Oxygen is also a healing agent, a provider of energy and it guards against unfriendly bacteria and disease. Science has shown us that our skin cells are the last to receive the oxygen we breathe in.


Also as we age the delivery of oxygen to the skin cells slows down which in turn slows down the cell regeneration. This causes the skin to become thinner and wrinkles and brown spots can start to appear. The skin can also have a general 'dulling'. Oxygen Therapy combats these symptoms by delivering a concentrated stream of oxygen directly to the skin, followed by an oxygen rich skin cream or serum.


According to Intraceuticals, an Australian company who developed the treatment along with a skincare range to go with it, the Oxygen facial is gentle, relaxing and soothing and is suitable for all skin types.


The facial promises to deliver skin that looks and feels years younger, is nourished and hydrated and the skin renewal is stimulated. The company also claims that your fine lines and blemishes virtually disappear in just a one 30 minute treatment.


An increase in the levels of oxygen in the skin helps to enhance the skin cells' metabolic health, enhances new cell growth and the functioning of the blood vessels in the skin. The resulting increase in blood flow improves the body's ability to metabolise, absorb and utilise vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutrients.


Oxygen also stimulates collagen production and the production of elastin fibres, all in all contributing to healthier, younger looking skin! The procedure involves six weekly treatments followed by monthly facials, costing $140-200 each.


If however you are a busy girl constantly on the go Tali by Tali Shine has developed the first Oxygen Therapy in a bottle. This fantastic little product is great if you are flying or generally spend a lot of time in air-conditioning which is extremely dehydrating for the skin. This product was created by using technology developed by NASA scientists.


It is a 100% natural, non toxic, chemical free and pH balanced skin rejuvenating facial spray containing high levels of bio-available oxygen dissolved in highly filtered water.


At first this spray has a mild chlorine-like scent. But it is not unpleasant. The smell is due to the use of Atlantic sea salt in the manufacturing process. And if they put a fragrance in the product to mask the smell, this would have destabilised the oxygen. So we prefer the original smell.


After having used the spray regularly I have noticed a definite brightening of my skin and it is an excellent product to keep with you at all times to re-hydrate your skin instantly.
