Oxybrasion - what is the procedure?


Oxybrasion is one of the latest cosmetic treatments that is becoming more and more popular among people who want to take care of their skin. It consists in deep cleansing of the skin with a stream of oxygen. What else is worth knowing about oxybrasion and what benefits it can bring to your skin? You can read about it in the article below.

Oxybrasion is a peeling that uses a stream of compressed air together with saline to work. Saline under high pressure hits the epidermis and is dispersed, causing mechanical friction at the same time. The friction is so gentle that it does not cause irritation (only slight redness is possible), and at the same time sufficient to gently exfoliate the epidermis. The effect of the treatment is brightening, smoothing and refreshing the epidermis. There is an improvement in oxygenation and hydration. The treatment is a method of rejuvenating and revitalizing even very sensitive skin. Performed in a series, it not only exfoliates the superficial layers of the epidermis, but also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin, thanks to which we observe an improvement in skin tension and shallowing of fine wrinkles. The cold used in the treatment has a strengthening effect on the walls of blood vessels and soothes reddened skin.
