Your potential clients or patients are curious about how oxygen affects the skin. We Googled “oxygen skincare” to see some of their most frequently asked questions. In this article, we’re going to answer these faq’s. We’ll also give you recommendations for talking with your clients and patients about oxygen skincare regimens, and the long term benefits for their skin health.
Let’s get started with a basic definition of Oxygen skincare. Oxygen skincare is a term used to describe skincare products and treatments that contain ingredients or active ingredients that increase the amount of oxygen delivered to the skin.
How Can I Add Oxygen into My Skin?
For years physicians have healed damaged tissue with increased oxygenation. Today Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a well-established, universal, and FDA-approved treatment for healing burns and wounds used in hospitals everywhere with a proven history of healing all kinds of severe skin trauma and damage. You can see the full list of approved uses at the FDA website here.
Successfully adding (or replenishing) a supply of oxygen into the skin is an intricate process. Oxygen Lab™ uses proprietary technology developed with the assistance of world renowned dermatologists, scientists, and doctors. Our Max-OX Complex™ infuses molecular oxygen deep into the skin. The Max-OX Complex™ is used in all of Oxygen Lab’s system of treatments – from our topical take-home creams to our ECHO2 Oxygen Infusing Treatments. Used daily, Oxygen Lab skincare will help maintain skin’s healthy oxygen levels while helping to delay and reverse the visible effects of aging.
Is Oxygen Cream Good for the Skin?
Yes, but the method of oxygen delivery and additional ingredients are important to producing effective, lasting results. Damage Control™ harnesses the power of oxygen with Max-OX Complex™ in combination with Aloe Vera, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Bisabolol, and Panthenol to provide maximum hydration, and to support, soothe and calm the skin.
Cell Fuel™ is the combination of Max-OX Complex™ with Vitamin C, Tranexamic Acid, Shea Butter, and Peptides to provide antioxidant support, help promote cellular turnover, brighten skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Does Oxygen Do in the Skin?
Oxygen is largely responsible for the skin’s ability to self-repair and heal. Unfortunately, your body loses the ability to deliver enough oxygen to the skin as you age. When the skin’s natural oxygen levels are reduced, the skin is impacted in several ways:
- Decrease in skin elasticity
- Collagen production slows
- Cellular turnover slows
- Increase or deepening of fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin loses the ability to repair itself and recover from environmental stress and hyperpigmentation
- Skin is less hydrated
- Skin appears dull
Delivering molecular oxygen back into the skin has been shown to reverse the effects of aging on the skin, heal, and repair. Additionally, acne causing bacteria is anaerobic (meaning it’s oxygen intolerant) making our oxygen infusion approach effective in fighting acne.
The core of Oxygen Lab is to provide professional anti-aging active oxygen carrier complexes across our skincare products to replenish optimal oxygen levels.
Is an Oxygen Treatment Worth It?
Yes, but (as we stated above) the method of oxygen delivery, frequency, and additional ingredients are important to producing effective, lasting results.
Oxygen Lab’s ECHO2 Oxygen Infusing Treatment System maximizes the skin’s natural oxygen levels nourishing, hydrating and rejuvenating your skin. ECHO2 is an essential monthly treatment that can also be used for post procedure recovery after peels, laser treatments, and surgery.

For those who struggle with persistent acne, The ECHO2 Acne Treatment is the world’s first professional treatment for acne that employs real oxygen to kill the bacteria that causes outbreaks by combining proven acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and lactic acid with holistic natural healing elements such as tea tree oil, licorice root, calendula, and witch hazel. The treatment lowers then raises the pH level to deeply cleanse and open the skin before extractions, then neutralizes and balances the pH level with two oxygen infusion steps that calm and nourish the skin.
