Active Acne Diminished by Oxyden Facial

Oxygen is known to speed the healing process of surgical wounds and topical burns and it has been used in the hospital setting for years.

Today, oxygen therapy, which is the rapid delivery of pure oxygen gas to the skin, is being applied to the treatment of active acne with the Echo2 Plus Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial.
Pure oxygen provides tremendous healing benefits to acne-prone skin, especially to complexions suffering from active acne.

"Active acne is believed to be caused in part to bacteria found under the surface of the skin," said Debra Thomas, R.N. and Clinical Administrator for The Skin Center Medical Spa.

"The Echo2 Plus Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial is effective for active acne because pure oxygen has proven to be a potent anti-bacterial agent."

In addition to the delivery of pure oxygen to the skin, the Echo2 Plus Oxygen Acne Treatment Facial combines proven acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and lactic acid to cleanse pores and remove impurities associated with acne outbreaks.

First, the skin is gently exfoliated to remove dead skin cells. A cleansing solution is then applied to tone and condition the skin. Once the skin is cleansed, a unique process known as Osmotic Hydration is performed.

This process requires that an intense topical vitamin mask be massaged into the skin, drawing moisture to the skin cells just beneath the outer layer of skin, or epidermis.

The Echo2 Plus Oxygen Treatment is not limited to people experiencing active acne. Oxygen therapy is beneficial to all skin types and is gentle enough to be combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and facial surgeries.
