1- The facial starts with a deep cleanse and massage, hot steam, and hot towel.
2- A primer gel is then applied to the face which will activate the dormant ingredients on the chosen pod. The OxyGeneo™ exfoliates the upper skin layer to remove dead cells, open clogged pores, smooth the surface and renew the skin. The treatment generates an abundance of CO2 bubbles that permeate the upper skin layer to trigger a physiological response known as the Bohr Effect. OxyGeneo™ harnesses the natural processes of the body to oxygenate the skin from within. During the Bohr Effect, the body sends oxygen-rich blood to the skin to replace the CO2. This results in optimal skin oxygenation and increased cellular activity. During this part the skin may feel a bit tingly or “spicy” which is the Bohr effect doing it’s thing!
3- A serum that matches the OxyGeneo pod is then applied to the face. A gentle, soothing, vibrating massage is performed to infuse the serums deep into the skin.
4- A post facial targeted serum, moisturizer and SPF are applied.
5- You will have the option to do a jelly mask add-on.
There are 7 pod options with a matching serum based on your skin type:
1- Glam (with pure 24k gold): ideal for sagging skin. Restores firmness and elasticity, revitalizes dull skin, and enriches the skin with moisture.
2- Revive (with red algae): ideal for fine lines and wrinkles. Helps prevent premature aging, and increases firmness and elasticity.
3- Hydrate (with blue spirulina): ideal for dry and irritated skin. Rehydrates and moisturizes dry skin, restores skin barrier function, and reduces redness and inflammation.
4- Balance (with activated bamboo charcoal): ideal for oily and acne prone skin. Clears toxins and bacteria, purifies clogged pores, and mattifies oily skin.
5- Detox (with green tea): ideal for sensitive skin. Removes toxins and impurities, reduces redness and irritation, and helps prevent premature aging.
6- Illuminate (with vitamin C): ideal for uneven and dull complexions. Brightens and evens skin tone, reduces signs of pigmentation, and protects from sun damage.
7- Retouch (with Bilberry Extract): Ideal for textured skin. Sheds dead cells and unclogs pores, promotes cell renewal and provides textural and smoothing benefits, and has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects to decrease blemishes.
No, your skin may be a little red from the oxygen rich blood, but that will dissipate within 30 minutes.
