Riox C02 facial available at The Hub New Mills. Non-injectable Co2 masks were originally created in Japan to promote wound healing for burn victims. Successful results have been documented relating to the beneficial effects. with patients visually experiencing in skin texture, firmness, reduction in wrinkles and size of pores. Most patients also experienced an overall lifting effect to their face
How does the Riox Mask work?
Quite simply CO2 gel is absorbed through tissue fluid, which dilates vessels to increase blood flow and release oxygen. This effect facilitates oxygen transport as hemoglobin binds to oxygen in the lungs, but then releases it in the tissues, particularly those tissues in most need of oxygen. When a tissue’s metabolic rate increases, its carbon dioxide production increases. This process will improve the discharge of waste from the skin, reduce inflammation, balance skin moisture, and improve skin conditions such as: acne, dryness and water retention.
When additional carbon dioxide is generated it naturally promotes the activity of protein synthesis, and as a result this directly improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin, improves collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Increased blood circulation will provide an overall brightness and radiance to the face and neck, freckles and hyper-pigmentation will take on a lighter tone. Additional carbon-dioxide delivered into the blood stream will provide the skin cells with more energy to aid repair and regeneration
The Riox CO2 treatment, also known as a manual carboxy treatment offers an effective way of treating aged, sun damaged and acne prone skins. A plant-based CO2 gel is applied to the skin and a mask placed over the gel to create a natural carboxy reaction, from increased levels of carbon dioxide generated in the skin.
The treatment works by increasing blood flow which releases oxygen molecules into the skin. This process naturally stimulates the release of additional CO2 (carbon dioxide) whichtravels around efficiently collecting and disposing of toxins.
The Riox mask will reduce the pH of the skin to kill bacteria, reduce sebum production and treat acne. It automatically stimulates collagen to improve fines lines and wrinkles over a course of treatments and will balance skin tone to leave the skin looking healthy and radiant.
