Oxygen is at the center of every biochemical process in our living bodies. 90 percent of the human body’s energy comes from oxygen while the remaining 10 per cent comes from food and water. You can survive for weeks without food and water, but without oxygen – not more than a few minutes.
Oxygen feeds your body, supports your immune system, destroys toxic substances and promotes the growth of new cells. Insufficient oxygen affects the well-being of most people and is the prime cause of illnesses, fatigue, stress, premature aging and other ailments.
Significantly, oxygen has been found to be an important component in skin rejuvenation, treatment of photo-aging skin, and improvement in skin complexions.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) enables you to reach your wellness goals by healing the human body within and outside. It is the most efficient method of delivering oxygen directly to the cells throughout your body.
HBOT has been used over the past 40 years in the western and other parts of the world, not only to treat serious medical conditions, but also used as a tool in wellness, anti-aging, aesthetic and sports therapies.
How it works
There should be no confusion of understanding the difference between HBOT and oxygen inhaled from oxygen bars. In HBOT, oxygen is delivered to your cells through systemic breathing under pressure that is higher than atmospheric oxygen levels. An enclosed chamber is used as a device to exert pressure and oxygen as the gas of medium delivered to your body tissues through all your body fluids and not alone through red blood cells.
Benefits of HBOT in aesthetics
Important effects of HBOT are stimulation of leukocyte microbial killing, enhancement of fibroblast replication, increased collagen formation and neovascularization of ischemic tissue. Enhanced delivery of oxygen to the skin allows the body to regenerate cells quickly, which reduces scarring and improves the appearance of an aesthetic procedure’s final result.
How it benefits in wellness & anti-aging
Without adequate oxygen in the tissues, the body’s natural healing process fails to function properly and we begin to see damaged tissues, decreased tissue function, slow healing, dry and sagging skin, aging, fatigue, wrinkles and a variety of other symptoms.
HBOT makes your stem cells healthier, thereby, enabling them to repair your bodies and rejuvenate you inside out. The term is used in wellness, anti-aging and spa centers worldwide for its rejuvenating properties.
The Anti-aging effects of hyperbaric oxygen build a strong foundation for aging without looking or feeling old. It improves the quality of life, a potentially great longevity and anti-aging tool.
One of the most spectacular uses of HBOT being recognized is for its powerful detoxification benefit. Your skin is largest organ and toxins in your body show up as blemishes and discolorations. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy removes these toxins and the aesthetic benefit to your skin is that it becomes fresh, rejuvenated and healthy.
