Anti-Aging Facials – Oxygen Dome

The grand finale in an all encompassing anti-aging facial and secondary modality of an oxygen treatment.  Terese Eastman of Skin Techniques in Petaluma, California (www.skintechniques.net) puts the finishing touch on Gigi’s facial by placing an oxygen dome on her face.  This treatment hydrates and heals the skin along with greater product penetration.

There is something that needs mention with oxygen therapy as it is considered by some to be controversial.  Aestheticians and patients may dismiss the theory as the results are immediate and evident (let’s face it, we all love immediate gratification), but we would be remiss not to mention that some industry experts believe that bombarding the skin with and overuse of this type of oxygen treatment (wand and dome) may lead to increased free radical activity.  As with anything, more is not necessarily better and it is always advisable not to overindulge in anything externally or internally.  We always preach “balance” and that too applies to your facials.
