When it comes to skin and skincare, some people are looking for a quick fix. As Skin Health Experts who treat skin every day, we know that there are no quick fixes. We subscribe to a skincare philosophy where consistency is key, high quality skincare ingredients matter, and self-care is essential. Yes, glowing, gorgeous, healthy skin is possible at every age. And one of our favorite clinic treatments for helping you get that gorgeous glow in one clinic visit (glow maintenance happens at home over time) is through an oxygen facial treatment.


For years now, celebrities and the skincare obsessed have sought out oxygen facials at skincare clinics like the Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts Clinic on Melrose Place in Los Angeles. However, with everyone at home and quarantining, access to high touch services like an oxygen facial are limited. Not to mention pricey.

You’ll love the visible results you get – in less time and for less money.

What is an Oxygen Facial?



So, what exactly is an oxygen facial? An oxygen facial is a "non-medical" procedure created to hydrate your skin and support natural collagen to help you achieve a more youthful look. An esthetician commonly does this specific type of oxygen facial therapy in a spa; however, it can easily be done at home with the right products. Oxygen facials deliver condensed molecules of oxygen to your skin, more specifically, your epidermis. At-home oxygen facial treatments like our DermalQuench Liquid Lift® Advanced Wrinkle Treatment, use powerful ingredients like our patented HydraFill Complex which includes rare botanical extracts and Hyaluronic Acid to provide instant and lasting hydration. The results of this anti aging skincare product? Visibly smoothed lines and wrinkles for all skin types. Give your skin what it needs and try this skincare treatment today for a healthy glow!


How Do Oxygen Facials Work?



So how does an oxygen facial work? When used as a skincare ingredient, oxygen helps encourage a healthy skin barrier and hydrate the skin. When you give skin cells a healthy boost of oxygen, you help maintain your skin's health and keep it looking bright and healthy.


4 Incredible Benefits of an Oxygen Facial



Here are a few reasons we love regularly doing oxygen facials at home:


Supports Natural Collagen

Collagen is an essential component of healthy skin. It works to help your cells bind together, which promotes skin elasticity and stronger skin. As collagen weakens (due to aging, sun damage, and other stressors), wrinkles begin to appear. Oxygen facials can help to support your natural collagen and help to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a more youthful appearance on all skin types.


Detoxifies Your Skin

Now and then, your skin may be craving a detox. Oxygen, nutrients, and vitamins added to an oxygen facial can help boost your skin's detoxification process and lessen the effects of environmental irritants and sun damage. Detoxifying your skin can also help work to restore skin cells.


Speeds up Cell Turnover

Skin cells don't live forever, and that's okay! When skin cells die, they are replaced by new, healthy cells that keep your skin bright and glowing [1]. This process is known as cell regeneration. If you’re wondering how to keep skin young , an oxygen facial can help maintain the health of your current skin cells and boost the frequency in which new cells are created. Faster cell turnover can aid in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Keeps Skin Clear

Acne occurs when the pores of your skin become clogged with oil, dirt, dead skin, or bacteria [2]. An oxygen facial will help diminish the appearance of pores so that they do not accumulate dust and dirt. Clean and healthy pores will keep your skin glowing for longer and prevent unwanted acne.


How to Recreate an Oxygen Facial At Home



Now that you better understand the benefits of an oxygen facial, you might be wondering how to recreate an oxygen facial at home. With the right products, performing your own oxygen facial can be quick, easy, and just as effective as a clinic treatment. By combining oxygen-promoting solutions like our DermalQuench Liquid Lift® and DermalQuench Wrinkle Warrior®, you can create a salon-quality facial treatment right at home. High-quality, age-defying ingredients like Polyglutamic Acid, Hydraulic Acid, and our patented HydraFill Complex are used in each of these solutions to give your skin a lasting healthy glow from the comfort of home.


When performing your at-home facial, remember that everyone's skin is different. By using high-quality products, the effects of an oxygen facial will routinely last up to six days. The best part? There is no post-treatment downtime! This makes it easy to do the oxygen facial at home the day before a big event (or let’s face it, Zoom video call for work). Incorporating oxygen facials into your skincare routine regularly can have lasting positive effects on your skin's health. Eager to get started? Check out our DermalQuench Collection!
