All About Oxygen Therapy: Uses and Benefits

Oxygen therapy delivered via facials has become a favored treatment for individuals seeking to restore youthful radiance to their skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It’s been successful enough that dermatologists are researching its benefits as a supportive treatment for mild to moderate acne, psoriasis, and other troublesome skin conditions.

But what does oxygen have to do with the health and appearance of your skin? A lot.      

Tasneem Agha, MD and our outstanding team of skin experts at Rose Lavande MedSpa in Houston, Texas, know all about the benefits of oxygen facials for your skin. We’re happy to explain how the therapy works and why we often recommend it to our clients.

How does oxygen therapy benefit my skin?

You know your body requires the right levels of oxygen to fuel the inner health you enjoy. For this, adequate oxygen levels depend on your lungs, heart, and bloodstream to process and distribute the air you inhale.  

Four dermatologic studies published by the National Institutes of Health show that your skin also benefits from various forms of topical oxygen therapy. Physicians have used it alongside other therapies for treatment of wounds following surgery, amputation, burns, and other skin trauma for decades.

Oxygen therapy can also help improve circulation by activating growth factors that build and repair damaged blood vessels.  

What is an oxygen facial?

During an oxygen facial, your Rose Lavande provider cleanses and exfoliates your skin and then uses a hand-held wand to deliver a steady stream of pressurized oxygen to the face and neck.

Typically infused with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, the oxygen is absorbed by the epidermis, your outermost skin layer. It then flows into the dermis, which lies directly beneath the epidermis. An oxygen facial can be used alone or, here at Rose Lavande, our members often opt for oxygen therapy as a finishing touch for a HydraFacial®.
