Perfect if you want glowing skin in time for party season, the oxygen facial has a huge following and is the beauty treatment celebs live by.

The results are instant and will leave you noticeably plumper skin. Sweet!

What to expect?

So what’s first? Since oxygen facials are quite different from your regular facial (no oils, no massage or relaxing candles here), you should expect more of a medical-oriented vibe. Once Your therapist has got to know you and understood what you want to get out of your treatment, he or she will perform a quick cleanse and exfoliation. This will create a blank canvas and allow your skin to better absorb the antioxidants and vitamins. Your aesthetician will then use a nozzle to puff chilly oxygen into the skin (this is quite tickly!), before finishing with a pampering mask. The entire treatment can take 30from to 60 minutes. The results are super noticeable with visibly clearer, plumper and smoother skin which makes it the ultimate treat for big occasions.
