Getting Oxygen Facial in Atlanta
What is Oxygen Facial ?
Oxygen Facials treat dull skin, breakouts, and visibly aging skin. We combine medical grade chemical peels, a detoxifying, age-fighting oxygen wrap, thorough extractions, and custom masks and serums, topped off with a stream of vitamin-infused, medical-grade oxygen. Every Oxygen Facial includes extractions (if needed), and you will see immediate results. Oxygen Facials are safe for all skin tones and types.
At WIFH, we use the Karin Herzog brand of oxygen-based products.
Oxygen facial pairs well with dermaplaning.
How Does Oxygen Facial Work?
Our skin needs oxygen to function properly and even to produce collagen, one of the building blocks of healthy skin tissue. Active oxygen has the ability to deeply cleanse, fight bacteria, repair skin cells, hydrate the skin, fight signs of aging, kill acne-causing bacteria, lighten pigment, and reduce redness caused by rosacea–a long list of benefits!
Here are the different Oxygen facials we offer at WIFH:
Acne Clearing Oxygen Facial
This no-nonsense treatment includes an oil annihilating BHA peel to decongest pores, kill blemish causing bacteria, and normalize your skin by reducing oil production. After an oxygen wrap and extractions, a soothing, mattifying mask leaves skin refreshed and radiant. (Recommended for oily, acne-prone, combination, congested skin types).
Age-Defying Oxygen Facial
This anti-aging treatment is designed to firm, revitalize, and repair dull, tired skin while restoring luminosity and preventing future damage. Using a medical grade AHA peel, we’ll slough away damaged cells and skin imperfections, leaving your skin shining bright like a diamond! (Recommended for Anti-Aging, UV/Environmental Damage).
Oxygen Facial for Sensitive Skin
Perfect for sensitive, reactive skin (even rosacea) that’s in need of a deep exfoliation but can’t tolerate abrasive treatments. Starts with the application of a medical-grade lactic acid to polish, smooth, strengthen and hydrate the skin. (Recommended for sensitive, reactive, skin types, Rosacea).
What are the Risks/Side Effects?
Oxygen facial is a pretty benign skin treatment and carries little risk. Because we are performing extractions there is the risk of bruising due to the pressure being applied to the skin. However, if this were to occur, they would be very tiny and easily covered by make-up.
*This treatment is safe during pregnancy.
Preparing for Oxygen Facial
The Week Before Your Procedure
- 3-5 days before your microdermabrasion treatment it is advised to stop using exfoliating products, acids and bleaching creams/products.
- Discontinue retinols and tretinoin (Retin-A) at least 12 hours in advance (day before).
- Do not wax or have a skin treatment like a chemical peel or IPL 2 weeks prior to your treatment.
- Microdermabrasion cannot be done if you have active acne, cold sore or open lesions.
- Please discontinue Accutane 6 months prior to having any skin treatment or procedure due to skin sensitivity.
The Day of Your Treatment
There is no real prep involved on the day of your treatment. It is always preferred that you come in with a clean face (no make-up), however if you are coming from work, we will have you cleanse your face once you arrive.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Each of our oxygen facials begins with a thorough cleanse and exfoliation. The exfoliation step will depend on your skin’s specific needs and varies from dermaplaning to a customized chemical peel.
Following exfoliation, we apply a stabilized active oxygen pack to soften the skin and debris within the pores. The oxygen cream basically creates a vacuum effect, pushing debris, bacteria, and any pore congestion to the surface, prepping the skin for the next step of extractions.
While we all need extractions from time to time, they can be painful and uncomfortable and leave your skin red and marked. Extractions following the application of active oxygen, however, are effortless and comfortable. This gives us the ability to thoroughly decongest your pores, leaving them clearer and cleaner than you ever thought possible. The natural antiseptic properties of the oxygen will also prevent any chance of post-facial breakouts.
After completing extractions, we apply soothing facial oils and serums and then a mask. Following the mask, we spray a stream of vitamin-infused, medical grade oxygen to reveal your beautiful, smooth, polished, and flawless skin.
This facial is very relaxing. While we do perform extractions, which can be uncomfortable at times the oxygen cream loosens all of the debris in the pores making these extractions effortless.
Oxygen facial takes approximately 1 hour.
You can have an oxygen facial as frequently as every 2 weeks. It’s the perfect periodic facial to keep your pores clean and the skin bright.
It’s a great option if you are getting ready for a special event as well.
Oxygen Facial Recovery Time
Immediately following treatment your skin may be a little pink (from the extractions). Other than that, it will look squeaky clean and vibrant. Any redness typically subsides within a few hours
You are able to apply make-up right away although many don’t want to put anything on their skin because it looks so fresh and polished.
You can resume your normal skincare regimen within 24 hours following your oxygen facial
Always wear sunscreen.
