What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Process & Benefits

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurised environment, known as a hyperbaric chamber. This cutting-edge, safe, easy, and effective therapy increases the concentration and flow of oxygen in our blood, speeding up the rate at which our bodies heal. It is used to treat decompression sickness (potential risk of scuba diving), serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that may not heal due to diabetes or radiation injury. But did you know that it can also be used to enhance your skin health? It can significantly boost your skin health and help you achieve a healthy and glowing complexion.

How does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy work?

In Hyperbaric Therapy, a person intermittently breathes around 100 percent oxygen within a hyperbaric chamber pressured to greater than sea level pressure. The body’s tissues require oxygen to function, and more oxygen speeds up the healing process of injured tissue. Under certain conditions, high-pressure oxygen can improve tissue function and fight several infections. Inside the hyperbaric chamber, the ambient pressure is three times higher than the air pressure that individuals regularly breathe. At this pressure, breathing practically pure oxygen can raise the concentration of oxygen available to the lungs by up to three times.

You sit or lie in a dedicated hyperbaric chamber during the procedure. The number of people in your hyperbaric chamber will vary. It depends on whether your hyperbaric chamber can accommodate one person or multiple people. You’ll recline on a table that glides inside the hyperbaric chamber, where you’ll continue lying during therapy.

What are the benefits of it?

That Therapy is an excellent treatment to add to your skincare regimen. It has numerous health and skin benefits, including:

  • Stimulates skin rejuvenation

It is an excellent option to boost your skin health. Increased oxygen intake in the hyperbaric chamber stimulates skin rejuvenation and helps you achieve younger-looking, smoother skin.

  • Increases skin elasticity

Elevated levels of oxygen increase skin elasticity. Since it involves breathing pure oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber, it can help you tighten up loose, saggy skin.

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

It stimulates collagen production, reducing the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment can instantly take years off your face.

  • Reduces scar formation

Are you dealing with acne scars? You must try Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as it reduces scar formation and helps you get clear skin.

  • Improves skin complexion

Looking for a treatment to tackle your dull and tired-looking skin? Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy repairs damaged skin cells and reveals a smoother, more even-toned complexion.

How long does a session last?

The duration of the session will be determined by the type of the treatment and your skin concern. A session can take anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

What are the risks associated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

While Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe procedure, potential risks include:

  • Middle ear injuries due to changes in air pressure
  • Sinus congestion and pressure
  • Temporary nearsightedness
  • Claustrophobia
  • Oxygen poisoning
  • Seizures as a result of too much oxygen (oxygen toxicity) in your central nervous system
