Oxygen, in conjunction with vitamins and minerals, is propelled onto the skin to nourish and revitalize the skin cells. Oxygen is an excellent nutrient for collagen and elastin. The body uses its own oxygen supply and other nutrients to increase the strength of the collagen and elastin fibers. The result is an increase in the suppleness and elasticity of the skin. Oxygen is also used to kill the bacteria that is the cause of acne. Oxygen treatments are also recommended after surgery and some laser treatments to promote healing!
