O-Biome Oxygen Therapy

Unleash the power of science and skin physiology with our cutting-edge skin intervention, cell optimising Oxygen Therapy Facial - perfect for achieving a radiant, rejuvenated complexion!
Now, to fully understand this glorious treatment, I'd like to touch on the O Cosmedics approach to skin health and why our skin's microbiome is vital to skin synergy.

O Cosmedics three step approach to skin health

  • Calm and Soothe: When the skin is in a state of stress or inflammation, blood flow and oxygenation decrease, making it harder for the skin to receive the necessary nutrients and support it needs to heal. Also, the acid mantle (your skin's barrier - a water in oil emulsion) becomes impaired, leading to an onslaught of skin issues. Calming and soothing the skin helps to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and oxygenation, strengthens and rebuilds the acid mantle, and creates an environment that is optimal for healing and strengthening. By doing this, the skin can better absorb and utilise products that promote healing and rejuvenation, leading to healthier, more resilient skin in the long run.
  • Heal and Strengthen: Healing and strengthening the skin involves repairing damaged skin cells and how they communicate, improving skin barrier function, perfecting your skin's ability to eliminate toxins and advancing the lymphatic and micro-circulatory system. Get ready to give your skin some love with this step! Whether you're fighting the signs of premature ageing, dealing with congested and acne-prone skin, feeling sensitive and dehydrated, battling inflammatory vascular conditions, or looking to even out pigmentation, this step is a total game-changer and prepares your skin for the next step: correction of the above skin conditions.
  • Correct and Maintain: Correcting and maintaining your skin involves taking steps to address any skin concerns you may have and keeping your skin in a healthy, balanced state. This will involve using products that target specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation or fine lines and wrinkles. Maintaining a consistent skincare routine and protecting your skin from environmental stressors, along with advanced skin treatments such as O-Biome Oxygen Therapy.

Behold the wonder that is O-Biome Oxygen Therapy! This phenomenal treatment is your secret weapon for achieving overall skin health by flawlessly executing the O Cosmedics essential three steps. Packed with four powerful and targeted additives, it caters to inflamed acneic skin all the way through to advanced skin ageing. Now that's what we call a skin MVP!

Your skin's Microbiome

Say Hello to Your Skin's Best Friend: The Microbiome!
You might have heard of the gut microbiome, but did you know that your skin has its very own little ecosystem too? That's right, the skin microbiome is a diverse community of tiny creatures that live on the surface of your skin and play a big role in keeping it healthy and happy.
When it's in balance, it's the ultimate wingman, keeping your skin protected, hydrated, and glowing. But just like any friendship, things can get a little complicated when the balance is off. Things that can knock this balance out of whack include; over cleansing or exfoliating, not protecting your skin from environmental stressors such as UV radiation and pollution and last but not least, some medications can have a rather negative impact too. So, let's dive into what happens when the skin microbiome goes awry.

  • Acne Alert! An overabundance of certain types of bacteria can lead to an outbreak or worse, bring on sore, inflamed cystic acne.
  • Eczema Blues! A disrupted skin microbiome can leave your skin feeling sensitive and irritated, and can lead to conditions like eczema.
  • Psoriasis Pains! An imbalanced microbiome has been linked to the development of psoriasis, a skin condition that shows up as red, scaly patches.
  • Fungal Fun! An overgrowth of certain fungi can lead to skin infections such as ringworm and athlete's foot. No one wants to deal with a fungal invasion.
  • Premature Ageing? No Way! An unhealthy microbiome can disrupt the skin's barrier function, leading to decreased hydration and a lacklustre complexion. That's the opposite of youthful, glowing skin.

So, what can you do to keep your skin's microbiome in balance? It's all about being good to your skin! Use gentle and high quality skincare products, avoid over-cleansing, and protect your skin from environmental stressors such as UV radiation and pollution. So, these things will help keep our skin's residents happy, but what can you do once the damage is done?

  • Behold, it is Mask time. The Oxygen mask will be left for 45 glorious minutes to work its magic. During this time, to maximise the efficacy of the mask it is important to stay as still as possible to avoid cracking the mask before it is ready. Your Skin Therapist can perform a foot massage for added relaxation, you can bring your airpods and listen to a podcast or you can simply bask in the serenity of candlelight, listening to our spa music.
  • Once the mask has delivered its goodness, it is cracked by your skin therapist pressing on your decolletage, neck and face and removed with hot towels. This takes time!
  • After the mask is removed, your Skin Therapist will apply a selection of products to set and lock in hydration, along with an SPF to protect all the magic we just did.
  • And voila! Time to enjoy your new found love, your skin. 

To get the most out of your experience, we recommend indulging in a course of at least 3 sessions. You can also take your results to the next level by combining it with our other skin faves, including LED, Microdermabrasion, and additional peels.
