My OxyGeneo Experience
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Lillian, and I’m a local journalist and blogger. I’ve also been dealing with problem skin since I was 11 years old. From acne and scarring to dryness and flaking, my skin has been my worst enemy ever since I can remember. I started working with the Advanced Laser Clinic team a few months ago to address some of those issues. I’ve already seen major improvement, especially with skin rejuvenation. But my favorite treatment thus far is definitely OxyGeneo, a three-in-one anti-aging facial that gave me immediate results with zero downtime. Major win.
Like I mentioned, I’ve had problem skin for years. A monthly regimen of chemical peels and facials has helped a lot during the past six months, but I was still experiencing some dullness and leftover dryness from a tough winter. I perform in a monthly comedy show, and I wanted a little boost the week before my show. I had heard that OxyGeneo treatments were great before big events like weddings or class reunions, so I decided to give it a try.
OxyGeneo is described as three-in-one facial because it performs three essential services for your skin: It exfoliates, it oxygenates and it infuses skin with essential nutrients. Before my treatment, I was told that there would be no downtime since OxyGeneo is good for even the most sensitive skin. To be honest, I was skeptical – not because I didn’t believe in the treatment, but because I know how finicky my skin can be.
To begin, my esthetician removed my makeup and steamed my face. A lot of people don’t like the effects of the steamer, but I love the way it opens up my pores and my sinuses. At that point, my face was prepared with a treatment gel. OxyGeneo treatments include one of two nutrient-rich gel options: NeoBright™, which contains azaleic acid, kojic acid and retinol, and NeoRevive™, which contains anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides and retinol. Since I struggle with acne, we opted for the NeoBright™ gel. My esthetician covered my face in the gel, allowing it to penetrate before utilizing the OxyGeneo applicator.
Let me take this opportunity to say that I was nervous about using an applicator. I’ve had microdermabrasion before, and my skin is just too sensitive to reap all of the benefits. However, the OxyGeneo applicator has a soft exfoliating head that felt more pleasant than abrasive. It was a slightly tingly sensation that instantly made the skin on my face feel tighter. That exfoliation, combined with the treatment gel, creates a gentle chemical reaction on the skin that results in carbon dioxide bubbles. Those bubbles help oxygenate the skin internally, helping cell turnover and making the skin more receptive to the nutrients in the gel. After my esthetician used the applicator on my skin, the rest of the treatment was a standard facial. A few extractions later, I was on my way home.
How It Felt
I don’t have a high pain tolerance, so I can be a wimp when it comes to heavy-duty facial treatments. Fortunately for me, the OxyGeneo just felt like a tingly facial massage. The exfoliation was refreshing and gentle, and the nutrient gel made my face feel clean and nourished all at once.
I have extremely sensitive skin, so my skin typically gets very red, inflamed and puffy after treatments. Even after simple facials, I tend to break out. That didn’t happen with the OxyGeneo treatment. Immediately after leaving the clinic, my skin looked plump, hydrated and radiant. The next morning, the results were even more apparent. The treatment brightened up my whole face without irritating it. Ultimately, I’d feel comfortable getting an OxyGeneo treatment the day of an important event – it’s that gentle.
OxyGeneo now ranks at the top of my favorite skin care treatments. The benefits are powerful, but the treatment is gentle enough that you can get it the day of an important event without worrying about irritation.
