The best-kept secret to healthier skin
Due to its ability to help boost collagen production, HBOT is considered a great treatment for anti-ageing, beauty and general skincare.
Collagen plays a big part in the health of our skin, because as we age it decreases, which can lead to wrinkles and other common signs of ageing.
HBOT increases the production of new collagen cells, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and keep the skin looking young, firm and healthy. The trial also found that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced by up to 70% with regular HBOT treatments.
While the increased oxygen can help stimulate collagen production just like oxygen facials do, the high-pressurised environment can also stimulate the production of elastin, which is the protein responsible for forming the main constituent of elastic connective tissue, boosting elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Hyperbaric treatment also enhances blood flow throughout the epidermis to nourish the skin cells, which is what many call a ‘healthy glow’, which is just blood carrying essential oxygen and nutrients. Improved blood flow can also help improve the texture and tone, while also reducing spots and large pores, dramatically improving the appearance of the skin.
HBOT can also be used to treat severe burns, such as second and third degree burns that damage more than just the outer layer of skin. Serious burns that penetrate deep not only damages the skin but the inner tissue below, which can lead to swelling, scarring and even infection. Used alongside traditional burn treatment, the use of HBOT promotes white blood cell production which greatly reduces the chances of infection, and high levels of oxygen will flood the damaged tissue, helping reduce swelling and improve the rate of healing.
As of July 2021, hyperbaric oxygen therapy received medical clearance as a way of treating both severe and large burns from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the federal agency responsible for protecting the public health in the US by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human drugs for medical purposes.
