Oxygen is a vital nutrient for healthy, youthful skin, without it our skin is not able to produce new skin cells, generate collagen or properly heal from wounds. In fact, the use of oxygen to speed the healing process of surgical wounds and topical burns has been used in the hospital setting for years. Today, the same principle used for oxygen therapy, which is the rapid delivery of pure oxygen gas to the skin, in hospitals is being applied to the treatment of active acne with the Echo2 Plus™ Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial.
Pure oxygen provides tremendous healing benefits to the skin, especially to complexions suffering from active acne. “Active acne is believed to be caused in part to bacteria found under the surface of the skin,” said Debra Thomas, R.N. and Clinical Administrator for The Skin Center Medical Spa. “The Echo2 Plus ™ Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial is effective for active acne because pure oxygen has proven to be a potent anti-bacterial agent.” In addition to the delivery of pure oxygen to the skin, the Echo2 Plus™ Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial combines proven acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and lactic acid to cleanse pores and remove impurities associated with acne outbreaks.
Echo2 Plus™ Oxygen Acne Treatment system utilizes a four-step process designed to cleanse, nourish and revitalize every skin cell through its revolutionary use of pure oxygen. First, the skin is gently exfoliated to remove dead skin cells. A cleansing solution is then applied to tone and condition the skin. Once the skin is cleansed, a unique process known as Osmotic Hydration is performed. This process requires that an intense topical vitamin mask be massaged into the skin, drawing moisture to the skin cells just beneath the outer layer of skin, or epidermis. Once the hydration process is complete pure oxygen gas, along with vitamins A, C and E and 87 other minerals, enzymes and amino acids are propelled deep into the lower or dermal layer of skin through a soothing vapor mist.
Following treatment, the skin appears softer, more supple and revitalized. For optimal results, it is recommended that a series of Echo2 Plus™ Oxygen Acne Treatments be performed in conjunction with the use of the OXYCEUTICALS™ Oxygen Acne Treatment advanced home care kit.
The Echo2 Plus™ Oxygen Treatment is not limited to people experiencing active acne. Oxygen therapy is beneficial to all skin types and is gentle enough to be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and facial surgeries.
In addition to non-invasive medical treatments, The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in a number of surgical procedures including upper and lower eyelids, nose contouring, chin augmentation, hair restoration, breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominal tucks and the QuickLift™.
