The unique Oxygeneo™ applicator, called Capsugen, is composed of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid. When this comes into contact with an exclusive gel of natural active ingredients, the effect generates CO2. The Oxygeneo™ technology produces a kinetic force that optimizes this chemical reaction generating countless minute CO2 bubbles with gently burst on the skin’s surface. The applicator then degases the CO2 bubbles from the gel and infuses them into the epidermis creating increased tissue oxygenation, optimal penetration, increased blood flow, the presence of oxygen rich blood in the area, and elevated cell metabolism. This process is called the Bohr effect.
Q: How is Oxygeneo™ different than microdermabrasion?
A: Traditional microdermabrasion is dead and anyone who pays for that is wasting their money. The suction of microdermabrasion can cause broken capillaries, inflammation, and only works on the surface, with no bearing to the long-term changes of the skin. To its opposite, Oxygeneo™ treats the texture of the skin, while simultaneously creating metabolic changes in the deeper tissues. Infusion, oxygenation, circulation and collagen stimulation make Geneo™ unparalleled in its results.
Q: How is Oxygeneo™ different than chemical peels?
A: Oxygeneo™ is a wonderful alternative to someone who doesn’t do well with acid-based peels, or prefers a different approach. Oxygeneo™ can exfoliate and oxygenate the tissue safely, all without the photosensitivity of acid peels.
Q: What types of skin can have Oxygeneo™?
All types of skin, except Rosacea, can have treatment with Oxygeneo™. It’s important to have a skin analysis prior to make sure it is the correct treatment for you.
Q: Can I do lasers with Oxygeneo™?
A: Yes, however, it depends on where your skin is at currently, and what your goals are ultimate. A Skin Management Expert™ will help guide you on this.
Q: How many treatments do I need of Oxygeneo™?
A: You can benefit from one, or have a series of six sessions spaced two weeks apart.
