OXYGEN FACIAL IN SEATTLE AND TACOMA
Glowing, healthy looking skin has become one of the most sought beauty standards in recent years. There are many professional facials and procedures that can aid in achieving a lasting glow. However, the oxygen facial is the secret to instant glowing skin, perfect for achieving a natural glow before events. In fact, many celebrities and influencers are known to undergo this non-invasive facial before red carpet events. Some even have their own oxygen facial machines to maintain their glow. At Seattle Plastic Surgery, our master estheticians make this Hollywood approved facial available at an affordable price. Seattle Plastic Surgery offers the oxygen facial in Seattle and Tacoma.
HOW DOES THE OXYGEN FACIAL WORK?
A Seattle oxygen facial uses the newest technology to deliver highly pressurized oxygen and beneficial serums to the surface of skin. Unlike other esthetic services, the oxygen facial does not deeply exfoliate. However, this isn’t necessarily a downside. This means that it does not irritate the skin and is unlikely to cause uncomfortable side effects. Additionally, many patients choose to combine an exfoliation treatment like dermaplaning, chemical peels, or microneedling with their oxygen facial. This can improve the effectiveness of both treatments.
The serums infused during the oxygen facial contain potent hydrators including hyaluronic acid. It also has beneficial vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids. These ingredients moisturize the skin and contribute to the natural glow left behind after an oxygen facial in Seattle.
Skin Benefits Of Oxygen
It is well known that all of the structures in our body need oxygen to function properly. The majority of oxygen we receive comes from breathing it in. Our blood cells then distribute this oxygen throughout the body. The skin usually receives 10% or less of this oxygen. When we are young, this is enough to maintain healthy, supple skin.
However, as we age, the amount of oxygen supply available to the skin decreases. This can cause dull, dry skin. Part of this is the normal aging process, while environmental and lifestyle factors can contribute. Other common causes of lack of oxygen on the skin include: smoking, pollution, and wearing unbreathable or excessive makeup.
Oxygen offers many benefits to the skin and is vital for maintaining youthful looking skin. A few of the skin benefits of oxygen can include:
- Reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria
- Shrinking pores
- Treatment of fine lines and wrinkles
- More even skin tone
- Stimulates collagen production and cell turnover
- Increases cell health
- Improves skin elasticity
Other Benefits Of The Oxygen Facial
While oxygen itself has many benefits, the serums also offer your skin some refreshment. Hyaluronic acid, especially, is known for its wealth of skin benefits. Other advantages of the facial can consist of are:
- Moisturizing the skin
- Cleansing of the skin and pores
- Improvement of skin texture
- Natural plumping effect
- Smoother looking skin
- Protection from toxins, pollutants, and UV rays
- Treatment of skin discoloration
- Promotes normal skin moisture balance (treating oily skin)
OUR OXYGEN FACIAL TECHNIQUE
Our Seattle master estheticians have curated an advanced technique with the help of the manufacturers of the oxygen facial. This technique was designed to give maximum benefit to patients while ensuring a comfortable experience.
To begin your oxygen facial in Seattle, your master esthetician will cleanse your face. They will then apply hyaluronic acid and serums. Since the procedure utilizes a pleasant flow of oxygen, no anesthetics are necessary. Most patients find the procedure relaxing and comfortable.
Next, your master estheticians will gently rub the wand of the oxygen facial machine over your face. As part of their specialized technique, they will use upward strokes because this produces a more lifted appearance. The upward motion also allows for better diffusion of the serums.
Like many of our esthetic services at Seattle Plastic Surgery, the oxygen facial is specially tailored to your needs and goals. Such as, if you have concerns about acne on your forehead, your master esthetician can focus more on that area. This allows you to get the most benefit from your Seattle oxygen facial.
The oxygen facial takes around one hour to complete and you can return to your daily activities immediately following the facial. You can even apply makeup right afterward and commence your normal skincare routine.
How Long Do The Results Last?
The instantaneous glow that you notice after your oxygen facial usually lasts between three days and one week. This is why the facial is ideal for before events. It can provide beautiful, glowing skin in preparation for a wedding or other large event.
Oftentimes, your master esthetician may recommend six weekly sessions when you first begin oxygen facials. This will help you maintain the glow for a longer period of time. After this, many patients come in for monthly or bi-monthly appointments.
ARE OXYGEN FACIALS RIGHT FOR EVERYONE?
Superficial facials rarely cause side effects or complications. They do not irritate the skin. Actually, oxygen facials in Tacoma have been known to calm redness and inflammation. During your consultation, your master esthetician will determine if the oxygen facial is a necessary addition to your skincare regimen.
Most of the time, an oxygen facial will benefit any skin type and tone. Patients with sensitive skin or most mild conditions are usually still good candidates for an oxygen facial. Our master estheticians use their knowledge of anatomy and conditions to ensure you receive only the safest and most effective procedures.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Qualified Are The Providers?
Our master estheticians attended additional education and training to earn their “master” title. The main difference between an esthetician and a master esthetician is that a master esthetician undergoes rigorous training in medical esthetics and treatments. This also includes gaining a comprehensive understanding of skin anatomy and conditions.
This allows them to expertly evaluate your skin from the inside out. Whether your concerns range from skin rejuvenation, eczema, or acne, our master estheticians can personalize a treatment plan to fit your goals.
Is The Oxygen Facial Good For Acne?
Adding oxygen and the uniquely formulated serums during the oxygen facial, contains antibacterial properties that cleanse away bacteria that causes acne. While it cannot totally prevent new bacteria from latching to the skin after, it can significantly reduce the amount present on the surface. The oxygen facial also cleans your pores to prevent acne. It can aid in managing acne long term if you receive regular facials in Tacoma.
Can I Wear Makeup Afterwards?
Yes! The oxygen facial is one of the few esthetic services that allows you to immediately apply makeup and skincare products. The exception to this is if you received a more abrasive treatment prior to the oxygen facial. Otherwise, it is perfectly safe to commence wearing makeup and using most typical skincare products.
Will I Have Any Side Effects?
As discussed above, side effects with the oxygen facial are rare. The treatment includes only a light brush of oxygen and it is overall an extremely gentle procedure. The only risks have to do with allergies to the ingredients present in the serum. You should discuss all known allergies with your master esthetician during your consultation.
Patients rarely ever experience irritation or redness from an oxygen facial because of its natural cooling and soothing properties. It is possible to treat the effects of deep exfoliation procedures with an oxygen facial in Seattle.
Does It Complement Other Procedures?
An oxygen facial is a fantastic complement to other esthetic services and nearly every skincare routine. Whether you have dry, oily, or combination skin, you can find benefit from an oxygen facial.
Since the oxygen facial does not exfoliate deeply, patients often combine this facial with exfoliating procedures. For example, dermaplaning, laser skin resurfacing, and chemical peels. Choosing an exfoliation or resurfacing procedure prior to your oxygen facial will remove dead skin from the deep layers of skin. This can improve the efficacy of the procedure.
