Oxygen Facial, also known as the Red-Carpet Facial or Celebrity Facial, is a non-invasive facial treatment that targets fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing the hydration of the skin. It also addresses problematic skin and overall skin health with booster applications including collagen, antioxidants, and vitamin-enriched serums.
The Oxygen System uses pure oxygen under pressure to deliver a special serum of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, essential vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants, and peptides to the skin. The Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial draws the oxygen in and filters it to a concentration of 90-95% pure oxygen. The key factors in this treatment are Oxygen and Hyaluronic Acid.
The oxygen facial is unique in that it is specifically designed to give patients in Austin improvement in their skin and appearance immediately after the procedure. This is why it has become so popular before photo shoots, special events, weddings, and the Red Carpet! There is absolutely no downtime, your skin will instantly look and feel healthier, hydrated, and plump which will reduce the appearance of fine lines!
The Oxygen Facial is a unique treatment to help you prepare for your big event. Please consult with a medical aesthetician to discuss if this treatment is right for you!
Oxygen vs. HydraFacial?
The HydraFacial and Oxygen Facial are two of our favorite procedures in Austin. They are both great options for your facial, however, they have very different and unique properties. Both facial treatments are among the newest in skincare technology and critically acclaimed, so how do you know which treatment is best for you?
The Intraceutical Oxygen Facial consists of using an airbrush wand that delivers 90-95% oxygen, which not only helps the skin to absorb the specialty serums, but the oxygen itself provides a cooling and calming effect to the skin. The serums are a cocktail of hyaluronic acid (which helps plump the skin) and antioxidants (essential for long-term skin health).
The Oxygen Facial allows instant visible results, leaving your skin hydrated, radiant, and plump. Known as the Red-Carpet Facial among celebrities, this treatment is the perfect way to prep your skin before a special event, or photoshoot.
The HydraFacial utilizes a wand with varying tips for each unique application. HydraFacial is unique in that it provides a hydra-dermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously. This unique combination by the HydraFacial results in more beautiful skin with no discomfort and minimal downtime. The treatment is soothing, moisturizing, non-invasive and non-irritating. The HydraFacial treatment improves the appearance of the skin over time.

Why do so Many Celebrities get Oxygen Facials?
The Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial is a specialized beauty treatment designed to replenish of oxygen levels in your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring a youthful appearance to your face. Several celebrities tout the amazing benefits of the Oxygen Facial. Madonna has stated in the media how much she loves her oxygen facial treatments! Kate Middleton is rumored to have had an oxygen facial before the royal wedding, and it is well-known that the Victoria’s Secret models have it done backstage before they walk in the infamous fashion show.
So, what exactly is an oxygen facial, and what makes them so beneficial before special events or photoshoots?
Before the treatment, the skin is cleansed and exfoliated to get rid of any surface impurities so that the treatment can be as effective as possible. Next, we use pressurized hyperbaric oxygen to infuse low molecular weight hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring moisturizer – into the deepest layers of the skin. The small-sized molecules along with the high pressure allow the serum to penetrate more readily into the skin during your oxygen facial. Finally, we infuse a second serum that reaches the middle and top layers of the skin for complete hydration at every layer. Depending on your skin’s specific needs, a blend of antioxidants, botanical extracts, and peptides can be added to the infusion.
The entire procedure takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes, making the Oxygen Facial an ideal treatment in Austin for a quick pick-me-up that can be done during your lunch hour. The oxygen facial can also be combined with an extended facial, scalp, and shoulder massage, along with a specialized mask, for the royal treatment!
In addition to being a relaxing way to pamper yourself, oxygen facials provide the following key benefits:
- Promotes collagen production – The infusion of oxygen and vitamins into the skin encourages the production of collagen, which helps plump up facial features and restore volume and firmness to skin that has lost elasticity.
- Helps detox the skin – Everyday toxins like air pollution and cigarette smoke rob the skin of much-needed oxygen. An oxygen facial helps reverse the effects of environmental pollutants and rejuvenates oxygen-starved skin.
- Accelerates cell turnover – Medical researchers believe that the infusion of oxygen into the skin may help the skin create new cells at a faster pace. This increased cell regeneration helps speed the healing of facial scars, acne, and blemishes
After an Oxygen Facial, you can expect to see a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. One that makes you look well-rested and youthful! For this reason, the oxygen facial is perfect before special occasions when you want to look your best without any downtime.
