Ozone therapy is a new beauty treatment that combines ozone and oxygen to disinfect the skin and improve its overall appearance.
To briefly summarize, ozone therapy provides the following benefits to the skin:
1. Detoxifies the skin
When cells are deprived of oxygen, they become unable to perform the detoxification process. An infusion of enriched oxygen molecules into the skin cleanses the toxins, impurities, and pollutants away on a cellular level.
This allows ozone therapy to negate the effects of pollution and to eliminate excess carbon dioxide piled up in the body.
2. Treats uneven skin tone
When skin is not properly oxygenated, its metabolism slows down which leads to a dull skin complexion and uneven skin tone.
An obvious by-product of skin detoxification through ozone therapy is the removal of dead skin cells and waste build-up on the surface. This brightens and balances the skin complexion and makes the skin more luminous.
3. Speeds up cell turnover
Through ozone therapy, an extra dose of oxygen is introduced to your skin cells which leads to an increased rate of cell production, growth, and regeneration. The faster the pace of cell turnover, the quicker the healing process of facial blemishes, wounds, or scars.
4. Stimulates elastin and collagen production
Collagen and elastin are both naturally-occurring protein fibers found in connective tissues all over the human body. While the former ensures elasticity, flexibility, and hydration of the skin, the latter is responsible for enabling the skin to return into its original shape after being stretched, poked, or pinched.
As we age, collagen and elastin are produced at a slower rate which eventually alters the skin structure, hence, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Ozone therapy is said to boost the ability of cells to produce collagen and elastin which can help to soften wrinkles and fine lines, to tighten or firm the skin, and to slow down the aging process.
5. Mitigates acne
As oxygen travels onto the skin’s surface, it kills pimple-causing bacteria while minimizing redness or inflammation which ultimately leads to a reduction of potential breakouts in the future. Furthermore, it shrinks the pores which reduce the possibility of oil clogging and dirt accumulation on the skin.
6. Infuses moisture and hydration
Constant exposure to the sun’s UV rays and environmental pollution as well as an unhealthy lifestyle can all rob your skin of its natural moisture and hydration content.
Ozone therapy not only cleanses and protects the skin but also improves its moisture and hydration levels while restoring its pH balance that can banish away dryness and dullness.
7. Lends your skin a natural glow
Because dead skin cells are removed, pores are unclogged, and there is an abundance of oxygen in the skin, ozone therapy can make your skin looking dewy, youthful, and super radiant.
8. No downtime
While other skincare treatments or beauty procedures have long recovery time, ozone therapy has little to zero downtime. You can immediately apply any product right away or go back to your normal activities throughout the day.
9. Instant results
Although the effectiveness of ozone therapy may vary depending on age, skin type, and issues to be dealt with, this skincare treatment has the ability to implant visible smoothness, brightness, and freshness to the skin immediately after the procedure.
10. No painful side effects
It is an exceptionally gentle beauty procedure that won’t leave any stinging or burning sensation at all. In fact, it calms the skin and even relieves it of any irritation.
