With the world of wellness taking hold and staying in our orbit, several different treatments stand out amongst the rest. Natural remedies are being increasingly popular as opposed to using the pharmaceutical industry to cure our ailments. One that we’re obsessed with is oxygen therapy, which is also known as supplemental oxygen, is the use of oxygen as a medical treatment for curing chronic or mild illness. These can include low blood oxygen, carbon monoxide toxicity, cluster headaches, and be used to maintain or add supplemental oxygen.
How does the treatment work?
Doctor Selma Uygun is a Düsseldorf-based plastic surgeon, holistic medic, and absolute queen of non-invasive beauty treatments. Praised for trading invasive surgery for other alternatives, she’s focused completely on her clientele’s spiritual wellness and delivering naturally beautiful, quick results with little to no downtime. She also offers the famous oxygen treatment. During this treatment, the oxygen is slowly supplied to the body in a precise dose through the vein (1 to 2 ml per minute). The oxygen bubbles form anti-inflammatory and vasodilating substances in the body. Then, tissue water that has excessively accumulated in the body is flushed out. The body is supplied with better blood, more white blood cells are produced, and you automatically have a stronger defense mechanism. After the treatment, you have to rest and lay down for 20 minutes.
Avoid exertion of any kind and try not to smoke during therapy.
What does oxygen therapy help with?
According to Dr. Regelsberger, oxygen therapy can help with the following:
- Side effects of chemotherapy
- Circulatory disorders
- Hay fever
- Heart attack and heart failure
- Consequences of stroke
- Kidney and liver weakness
- Erectile dysfunction
What else is oxygen used for?
Oxygen therapy can be used for all of the above, but can also be used for skincare purposes! An oxygen facial or even an oxygen add-on when you’re with your esthetician can reap incredible benefits all around, with any skin issues. Oxygen helps to make your skin look plump and bright, it can help calm acne, and also accelerates wound healing, according to Healthline. It also helps kill bacteria that can sit on the surface of skin.
Oxygen is full of vitamins and minerals, so it can also help to brighten and even skin tone. On top of this, oxygen is the base of water, so hydration is an additional benefit to this type of facial as well!
