How Oxygen Works in the Skin
Oxygen RX Treatment
The use of oxygen is among the most controversial modalities in skin care. It is important to differentiate between the activities of oxygen entering the body through the lungs, versus the benefit of a topical application.
Oxygen, taken in through respiration, is used in the complex process of energy production in the cell. It is also critical for the formation of collagen in the dermis. The very nature of the skin as a barrier makes the topical application of oxygen both difficult and only marginally effective. But Dr. Pugliese discovered that oxygen can effectively be generated on the surface of the skin. By generating oxygen on the skin at the time of use, penetration is enhanced without excess formation of free radicals.
The Oxygen RX kit employs a gel base mixed with a single-use powder to effectively reduce signs of redness and bacterial content. When combined with the appropriate home care products, clients with acne and rosacea see and feel significant improvement. This refreshing treatment is also useful in long-term hyperpigmentation treatment protocols.
