Glow On Girl – Oxygen Facials For A Flawless Canvas

Award season for me begins with the Golden Globe Awards and ends with the Academy Awards and although its great fun, the prep work that goes into is never easy or fun for my celebrity clients.

For them, for any of my clients really, I pull out all the stops and use every trick I know in order to get them camera ready. One such treatment is my Oxygen Purifying Facial.

Oxygen is essential for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin. Undergoing this spa treatment can reduce the look of redness and irritation on the skin and make it noticeably plumper and more hydrated. Below you will find out a bit more about why I use oxygen in practically all my treatments to give you fresher and younger looking skin.

Why Oxygen?

If you have ever watched the Academy Awards and wondered how all of that flawlessness was possible with those brutally unforgiving high-definition cameras, the answer my friends, is oxygen. You might know oxygen as that colorless, odorless compound we breathe, in order to, you know, live.

Well, oxygen can give your skin life, in the form of pressurized oxygen administered to the skin, which delivers immediate results. In addition to deliciously hydrated skin, you can expect detoxified skin, increased circulation, smoother skin texture, and the big one: increased collagen production. Skin looks dewy and smooth and has a more youthful, ‘plumped’ up appearance.

That’s why this non-invasive facial treatment is sometimes preferred for red carpet events – no downtime, no redness or irritation – just instantly luminous, hydrated skin. You’re out of the treatment room and red carpet ready in a snap.

That’s why the Oxygen Purifying Facial at Joanna Vargas Salon is the in demand treatment for awards season; even the most sensitive skin can get this facial and be in front of the cameras in no time. Since oxygen accelerates healing, it also makes it a great compliment to the microdermabrasion in Joanna’s signature treatment, the Triple Crown Facial (which is a trifecta of microcurrent, microdermabrasion and oxygen therapy).

Oxygen therapy is ideal for fine lines, dull, dehydrated skin, uneven skin tone, and can help improve skin conditions such as, acne, rosacea and eczema, and regular treatments will result in improved texture, clarity and tone.

The Facial Spa Treatment

Oxygen is essential to cellular function. As we age our bodies are less able to assimilate the oxygen in our blood into the skin. Add to that the effects of pollution and other factors and our skin is not able to use oxygen as efficiently. The result is often dull, dry-looking skin and the acceleration of visible signs of aging, in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. The pressurized oxygen delivered by an airbrush machine similar to the kind used by make up artists to apply make up, also includes a nourishing serum.

It is positioned a few inches away from the skin, and working in small sections at a time, your skin care therapist delivers what feels like a cool burst of air to the entire surface of the skin. After the treatment, you will immediately notice how plump and smooth your skin looks and your skin will feel deeply hydrated and balanced. And you can be sure that under the surface, your collagen is getting a workout, having been kicked into gear by the big O – so you just may look even more fabulous the next day. So whether your ‘red carpet’ is a job interview, your high-school reunion or knowing you’re running into your ex, you’ll be ready, and then some.
