I'm fascinated by authentic Korean skin care technology. So much so that I've added to my collection of high tech, Korean skin care machines.
Oxygen Dome Facial Therapy is a 2 part system to help clients with acne, hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, collagen production and preservation.
This technology generates highly concentrated oxygen and anions and harnesses them in 2 ways;
1. Mist - a small air brush type gun mixes the concentrated oxygen and anions with customized serum and is applied as you've had here before - just a little more intensely.
2. Dome - your skin will be surrounded by the oxygen and anions for 15 - 20 minutes for an in-depth exposure to the beneficial substances. Below is a picture of what the dome looks like (a bubbling mask has been applied to clean the pores in this case).
What are anions?
Anions are negative ions. You may be familiar with this technology as it is in certain types of air purifiers. The negative ions clear air in a room of airborne allergens, pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses, dust, pet dander and cigarette smoke.
So the technology has been harnessed in a machine that pulls in the room air, separates out the nitrogen, and gives us a 90% oxygen stream. The stream is pumped through a large dome that covers your skin, so that the anions can be trapped in the space around your facial skin. The skin absorbs the anions, and you breathe them in for added benefit. They influence skin health but also have benefits to the body as a whole.
Skin Benefits: Anions help stabilize free radicals and regenerate damaged skin cells. This process helps rebalance the pH level of your skin, reduces acne causing bacteria, lightens pigmentation, stimulates collagen production, promotes skin intake of nutrients, and improves tone and texture.
Body Benefits: Anions boost the body's energy levels and improve blood circulation. It can also help alleviate the symptoms of colds, headaches, allergies and hangover.
Who can have Oxygen Dome Facial Therapy?
This therapy is suitable for all skin types and helps many conditions including acne, sun damage; its also great post-extraction if you tend to get very red.
