Oxygen therapy, which is being applied since early 2000s, is based on the principle of delivering the skin care products into the lower layers of the skin and oxygenating the skin with the help of high pressure oxygen in order to support and treat the skin and subcutaneous layers. Oxygen therapy, that is still one of the most preferred skin care applications today, is renewed with OxyGeneo(R) technology which provides stronger oxygen support to the skin in line with the developing technology and treatment methods and enables repair of the skin more intensively and effectively.
The OxyGeneo(R) , 3-in-1 technology, minimizes the wrinkles and spots developed on the skin thanks to the new generation of oxygen technology it offers, cleanses the skin optimally and removes the dead cells aiding in regeneration of the skin.
Three basic health care applications that OxyGeneo(R) technology offers at the same time are as follows;
- Microdermabrasion and Oxygen Support
Areas of Application
1. Microdermabrasion and Oxygen Support
The process begins with application of specially formulated, nutrient-rich gels to increase the effects of microdermabrasion and oxygenation. A capsule called Capsugen®, which is made of a mixture of calcium carbonate and citric acid, is fitted on the head of the instrument which will contact the gel previously applied on the skin.
Capsugen® containing massager head induces the formation of carbon dioxide on the skin surface when it interacts with the gel. While the resulting carbon dioxide bubbles deeply cleanse the skin, increased carbon dioxide pressure on the skin surface triggers a physiological response called “Bohr effect” in the skin, increasing the oxygen content of the tissues. As a result, blood circulation increases in the area of application and a blood circulation with higher oxygen content is achieved.
With the help of increased oxygen concentration , the skin is cleansed and becomes ready to receive the active ingredients with optimum skin rejuvenating and anti-aging properties such as Palmitoil Tripeptide-5, Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate.
Capsugen® head with the special gel have another important function other than the oxygen support it provides from inside out. The massager head starts to melt and bubble while in contact with the gel, and assumes a rough surface. The result is a mechanical peeling effect called microdermalisation on the skin, and the skin is cleared from its dead cells. After the first stage, lasting about 10 minutes, the radiofrequency procedure is started.
Radiofrequency is realized by transferring heat energy to the middle layer of the skin ie. the dermis. This application targets stretching and tightening collagen fibers by heating subcutaneous tissue in a controlled way. This confers the skin a more vigorous, voluminous and smoother appearance. Application dose and depth vary according to the skin texture. Approximately 10-12 minutes after the application, a marked tightening of the skin is felt.
In the third and the last stage, a mesotherapy solution specifically formulated for the patient is selected, and using an ultrasound head it is applied on the skin without injecting anything. Thanks to the high-frequency sound waves transferred to the skin by ultrasound head , nutrients and structuring agents in the solution can easily penetrate into the skin. In this way, the skin obtains the vitamin and mineral cocktails it needs with the aid of ultrasound waves without using needles.
Mesotherapy solutions selected according to the needs of the person include skin rejuvenating mixtures , skin tightening and anti-wrinkle cocktails that contain growth factors.
What Are the Benefits of OxyGeneo®?
- It cleans the skin deeply, removes dead cells and provides oxygen to the skin.
- It tightens skin by softening fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduces the appearance of dry and pale skin and confers it a brighter appearance.

A hypoallergenic sunscreen should be used for a period of at least 24 hours following the application and the swimming, going to sauna and taking a bath should be avoided for one week.
How often should the application be performed?
In order to achieve permanent and effective results, it is recommended to perform application of OxyGeneo(R) for 6 sessions at 1- week intervals.
What are the contraindications of OxyGeneo(R) application ?
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding women,
- Presence of warts, eczema, skin rash, and tenderness, swelling or acne on the area of application,
- OxyGeneo(R) treatment is not recommended for people with pacemakers.
