Glo2Facial Skin Oxygenation - Glo2Facial by Geneo

Skin oxygenation is a process that delivers oxygen directly into the skin. Your outermost layer of skin, the epidermis, is very thin, and oxygen from the air naturally penetrates the cells. Oxygen is essential for the skin cell renewal cycle. You can get immediate benefits by boosting the oxygen in your skin cells through an effective oxygenation treatment.

Oxygenation benefits your skin by:

  • Increasing the skin cell renewal process, giving you a fresh, smooth complexion
  • Healing acne and reduces inflammation
  • Supporting cell functions such as collagen and elastic fiber production
  • Removing toxins and impurities that can clog pores
  • Giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow

The fantastic benefits of skin oxygenation have led to the popularity of “oxygen facials.” Despite the name, many oxygen facials don’t truly increase skin oxygenation long-term. Oxygen facials are performed with a device that pumps oxygen into the skin cells from the outside. This outside-in approach doesn’t provide your skin cells with enough opportunity to put this oxygen to work.

Glo2Facial’s oxygenating treatments utilize our unique OxyPod technology to create a skin-activated oxygenating facial. Our patented oxygenation technology gently exfoliates the skin and creates a bubbly, CO2-rich environment on the skin’s surface. The body responds by sending a surge of oxygen to the skin, creating ideal conditions to nourish and transform the skin from the inside out. By working with your body’s natural processes, Glo2Facial transforms your skin from the inside out and is much more effective than traditional oxygen facials.

Why Your Skin Needs Oxygen

Oxygen is essential to your skin cells. They use it to complete the skin cell cycle, which is the natural replacement of rough, dead cells with new cells that are healthy and smooth. Dermal skin cells, those within a deep layer of skin, also use oxygen to create collagen and elastic fibers and heal the skin.

When your skin is oxygen-deprived, it can’t perform the processes that keep it healthy. Pollution, UV rays, and free radicals all contribute to oxygen deprivation in the skin. This results in noticeable aging effects, such as fine lines, dull complexion, and saggy skin.

How to Get More Oxygen to Your Skin

There are two main ways to oxygenate the skin — internally and externally. While your skin can absorb oxygen externally from the air, it only gets a small portion of its oxygen this way. The majority of oxygen is delivered internally through your blood vessels.

Apply Directly to Your Skin

Applying oxygen directly to your skin is one method of skin oxygenation. This is most commonly done with oxygen facials, although for skin-healing medical treatments, doctors use a hyperbaric chamber.

The hyperbaric chamber is actually the inspiration behind oxygen facials. However, the process doesn’t work the same way. In a hyperbaric chamber, you’re breathing almost pure oxygen, enabling the blood vessels to deliver enormous amounts of oxygen to the skin.

With an oxygen facial, the oxygen comes from an external source that can’t deliver the same oxygenation level. Your epidermis receives most of the benefits from direct oxygen applications, and you’ll enjoy a healthy glow from this type of treatment. However, the deeper layers of skin won’t see much, if any, of this oxygen. These layers have a huge impact on the firmness and elasticity of your skin, so oxygen delivered topically won’t support long-term skin benefits.

Increase Oxygen Production From Within

Skin cells naturally receive the majority of their oxygen supply from blood vessels. That means that skin oxygenation that occurs internally provides more powerful and long-lasting results than externally applied oxygen.

There are several ways you can increase skin oxygenation from the inside out. The easiest at-home methods are exfoliation and exercise. Exfoliation and exercise both stimulate oxygen-rich blood to flow to the targeted areas. This method oxygenates skin at the deepest levels, ensuring dramatic results in the health and appearance of your skin.

For professional results, choose a reputable provider that offers oxygenating facials that harness the body’s natural processes to deliver an effective, internal oxygen boost.

How To Incorporate Oxygenation Into Your Skin Care Routine

There are several at-home ways to oxygenate your skin. Processes that increase circulation will deliver a healthy dose of oxygen to the skin. You can add one or more of these methods to get the benefits of skin oxygenation:

  • Exfoliation
  • Facial massage
  • Dry brushing
  • Steam
  • Exercise

Including oxygen-stimulating skincare into your home routine is an excellent way to care for your skin. Treat yourself to professional oxygenating facials for the most dramatic results.

Spa Treatments: The Best Way to Increase Skin Oxygenation

Remember that just because a treatment has “oxygen” in its name, it doesn’t mean it’s the most effective option. Look for oxygenating facials that stimulate oxygen from the inside out rather than the outside in.

Oxygen Facials

Oxygen facials deliver pressurized, nutrient-infused oxygen to the outermost layer of skin using a wand-like device. This gentle procedure is relaxing, produces a radiant glow, and provides surface-level hydration. However, oxygen facials don’t oxygenate the deeper layers of skin that directly support the epidermis, meaning these facials don’t encompass all the benefits of skin oxygenation.

What the Research Shows

The research behind oxygen facials shows that they can provide benefits in treating hair loss and mild to moderate acne. In a study comparing a group that received oxygen facials and one that did not, those who received oxygen facials showed better cosmetic results.

In short, externally applied oxygenation from traditional oxygen facials is beneficial compared to no oxygenation treatment.

How to Get an Oxygen Facial

Oxygen facials are most often done at salons, spas, and skin clinics. Professional oxygen facials cost between $150 and $500. There are also at-home devices that you can purchase for DIY oxygen facials. These range from $150 to $400.

Oxygenating Facials by Glo2Facial

Glo2Facial is different from traditional oxygen facials. Instead of delivering oxygen externally, they create a CO2-rich environment that stimulates your body to send oxygen to the skin. By activating the oxygenation from within, Glo2Facial can harness the benefits of oxygen at the deepest levels for impressive, long-lasting results.

How it Works

The process begins when the natural ingredients in the Glo2Facial customization pod interacts with the Primer Gel during the Oxygenation phase of the facial. In this step, our patented technology creates a bubbly, CO2-rich environment on the skin’s surface.

The increased levels of CO2 on the skin trigger a natural mechanism in the body called the Bohr Effect. This drives oxygen-rich blood to the skin’s surface and increases oxygen levels in the treated area. The Glo2Facial customization pod’s unique texture simultaneously delivers gentle skin exfoliation. The combination of exfoliation and oxygenation from within creates optimal conditions for nutrient absorption into the skin.

What the Research Shows

The effectiveness of the Glo2Facial was clinically validated by Dr. Alex Levenberg, who evaluated the amount of blood circulation, CO2, and oxygen levels on the skin. Among a test group of patients, measurements were taken prior to treatment, immediately following treatment, and 15 minutes after treatment.
Patients showed improvement in various skin attributes such as smoothness, pore appearance, brightness, and reduction of fine lines. 3D Primos imaging showed a reduction in wrinkle depth of 112 microns. Visio Meter microscopic imaging highlighted the results of smoother, less scaly skin, while the Delfin Skin Gloss Meter showed an improvement in 67% of the patients.
Both blood flow and oxygen levels increased during the treatment. The increase in blood flow and oxygen levels in the treated area helps prepare the skin to more readily absorb nutrients and enhances collagen production. The results: CO2 levels return to normal, but the levels of oxygen remain heightened, as does blood flow to the treatment area during the treatment period. This helps to increase the absorption of nutrients for more powerful results.

Get answers to your most pressing skin oxygenation questions.

Does oxygen improve skin?

Yes, oxygen is essential to your skin’s health and attractive appearance. Traditional oxygen facials are beneficial but have short-term results. In contrast, Glo2Facial works from the inside out to give you lasting benefits.

Oxygenating the skin:

  • Increases blood flow & cell metabolism
  • Hydrates and detoxifies the skin
  • Promotes repair and regeneration of collagen & elastin

Does skin have oxygen naturally?

Yes, your skin gets about 10% of its oxygen externally, and the rest is delivered directly from your blood vessels.

What is the difference between Glo2Facial and oxygen facials?

Oxygen facials deliver oxygen externally through the pores of your epidermis, and Glo2Facials stimulate your body to deliver a stream of oxygen to your skin from the inside out. The external application only penetrates the outermost layer of your skin, while Glo2Facial infuses oxygen throughout every layer of skin.
