I have taken care of my skin over the years. I use high-end skincare. I would say 88% meticulous about my regimen. [I do have lazy, too much champagne nights were I face plant into my pillow - makeup and contacts still intact] Heck - if that 12% wasn't lazy, think of the added benefit to my skin!
I do hesitate with new treatments only because I have had bad experiences with reacting to new products. Job hazard and job perk all rolled into one. Freebies sometimes end up costing.
My hour with Sccube: I was greeted by the facialist who thought I was 30-32. Hello new BFF! ... who quickly became a frenemy when she added that I look so young because I am chubby... *hint* don't say that to your clients! [I am not chubby. Bitch, please.]
The Dr Brandt Oxygen rejuvenation therapy treatment takes an hour and the results were really quite impressive. I tried taking before and afters but the lighting was so hideous and I'm vain so... no pics, just words.
I had moments where the treatment felt very cold - I giggled.
I also had moments where I felt like Pop Rocks where placed on my skin, a bizarre feeling which was the action of the oxygen.
From the moment I left the spa to the current day, two weeks later, I swear my marrionette lines seem to have diminished... I also use the Baby Quasar so that could have something to do with it too.
How It Works
An airbrush-like wand hovers just above your face. The Oxygen infusion system uses therapeutic grade oxygen under hyperbaric pressure to infuse a skin specific cocktail of hydrators, essential vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants and amino peptides to the deeper layers of the skin. The result is luminous, unparalleled hydration and visible, age defying results. Rehydrated, younger, plumped up skin in less than hour sets this treatment apart from any other facial treatment on your menu.
What to Expect
An oxygen facial delivers a mixture of hyperbaric oxygen, or pure oxygen at a high pressure, and anti-aging serum through an airbrush to the face and body. It's almost as though someone is using a tiny power washer to pump oxygen and moisturizer into the skin. People who use oxygen facials say the process helps makeup application because it gives the skin a smooth and moisturized surface. Makeup also can be applied right after the oxygen facial, as opposed to traditional facials, which often require a 12-hour waiting period before you can apply any makeup.There is no downtime or recovery time following this facial rejuvenation treatment. Our should expect their facial to last 40 to 60 minutes. Your skin will feel moisturized and glow with improved firmness and radiance.
