Intraceuticals Oxygen-Infused Facials Promise Celebrity Skin
A product that has drawn a cult following from names like Madonna, John Galliano, Rachel Zoe, Justin Timberlake and more, this unique line is delivered to the skin through both at-home treatments and in-spa oxygen facials.
The makeup artists behind movies like Sex and the City and shows like American Idol also swear by Intraceuticals oxygen to get clients TV-ready, and producers for music videos featuring celebrities like Katy Perry noticed that their retouching costs were reduced, at times by thousands of dollars, because the star's skin was so much better-looking.
Now non mega stars can achieve the same results. We had the chance to sample the new Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial at The Ritz-Carlton's Sports Club/LA in Washington, DC last week and see for ourselves what it felt to be pampered like an A-lister. The therapists promised brighter, smoother-looking skin with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The treatments were recommended in a series of six, one per week, with results that should last longer after each subsequent treatment. This first facial, she promised, would last between 36 and 48 hours. Thankfully, we were headed to an event that evening and knew we'd have some photographic evidence of the evening to compare.
The treatment began with a thorough cleansing to form a clean base for the infusion. Next came the oxygen, gently pushed into the skin using a unique metal wand. The quiet whirring of the machine and the low light in the room made it feel almost like a facial massage - if we hadn't been chatting with the esthetician, it would have been sleep-inducing.
Forty-five minutes later, the treatment was finished, and we instantly noticed that the skin under our eyes was less puffy and that our cheeks and forehead were bright and smooth. Unfortunately, at 25, we didn't have any wrinkles to hide, but photos from that evening's event were unusually flattering! True to their promises, the results lasted about 36 hours.
While it probably isn't the best treatment for already-youthful looking skin, it is effective. So next time you're aiming to channel Madonna or J.T. before a big event ... we'd highly recommend it.
