Guest Video Reviews of Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial

When I first heard that Exuviance was bringing a new product out that infused the skin with oxygen I immediately looked at it sceptically so I decided to do my own research to be sure this product and its ingredients are backed by science. My main questions were does it really work and if so what are the exact skin benefits we will see?

“If you would like to rejuvenate your skin, maximise oxygen intake, stimulate collagen production and you want the benefits of a facial from the comfort of your home then the Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial is an excellent choice to see immediate and visible results” Dr Alek Nikolic

Why do we need Oxygen?

Interestingly the original use of oxygen in skin care began with its topical application to hasten the healing of burns. This was done only in hospital environments where pressurized oxygen tanks were used. It was found that stable natural oxygen increases skin cell metabolism.

This should not to be confused with unstable forms of oxygen which I have often referred to as free radicals that are accumulated with environmental damage and have been shown to be major contributors to skin ageing and even skin cell death.

Role of Oxygen in Skin

Collagen synthesis and deposition can only occur in the presence of oxygen. It has been shown that oxygen is added to pro-collagen by prolyl-hydroxylase and lysyl-hydroxylase enzymes which is vital for the final end process and production of skin collagen.

During wound healing, there is an increased demand on energy (ATP) and, therefore oxygen.

Topical oxygen is increasingly being used to stimulate wound healing and more recently is also gaining use in dermatology for post-procedure skin care with remarkable results.

“Molecular Oxygen supports natural production of cellular energy, optimises collagen levels and help revitalize & re-energize your skin plus the added PHA/Bionic blend restores youthful plumpness, suppleness and radiance:” Dr Alek Nikolic

Study Review:

International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 18(3), 137-50. The effectiveness of molecular oxygen in cosmetic formulations.

 In a preliminary clinical study, two cosmetic preparations were compared, one without an oxygen carrier and the other one containing the oxygen carrier, fully saturated with oxygen.

Skin Measurements:

  • Moisture content of the skin and the skin profile

Results:

  • Perfluorodecalin plus molecular oxygen improves the barrier function of the skin
  • Improvement of fine lines and wrinkles: a linear dose-dependent increase in oxygen partial pressure of the skin (r=0.978) and a linear dose-dependent reduction in fine lines and wrinkles (r=0.9855) was found
“Following the study results and the references I have checked I can highly recommend the Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial as a must have at home facial treatment that can be used 3 times weekly to maximise skin results” Dr Alek Nikolic
