Oxygen is known to be a systemic component in skin rejuvenation.

The extra oxygen from the treatment is essential for improving the blood flow, boost cell metabolism, facilitate collagen production, contribute to microscopic blood vessel growth, reduce oxidative stress, and on the surface level increases skin elasticity.

One of the main mechanisms of action in providing HBOT is the body’s compensation and ability to increase its natural antioxidant defences. In return, the body is geared at handling the current influx of stressors, including dietary and environmental stressors, promoting healthy aging.

Ultraviolet (UV) exposure is a major cause of skin aging and skin malignancies. The use of HBOT and hyperoxia conditions has been found to attenuate the formation of wrinkles from UV irradiation. Receiving regular treatments of HBOT is thought to increase skin elasticity and stimulate collagen production. Oxygen is used in skin care because it is thought that delivery of natural oxygen increases cell metabolism which has led to the widespread usage for the process of skin rejuvenation.

Respectable skincare clinics and hyperbaric spas centres integrate hyperbaric oxygen therapy into their programs to rejuvenate skin, increase skin elasticity, repair aging skin texture, reduce scar formation, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin complexion. Hyperbaric Therapy for anti-aging has become a common protocol in the wellness world.
