Anna Marie here! After not having a facial since October, I decided that it was time! I usually get the Bio-lift facial at Rescue Spa which incorporates microcurrents. My new facialist Magda, asked if I wanted to try the oxylight facial. The facial started off with some cleansing, followed by an examination of my skin. I haven’t had many breakouts but still quite a bit of stubborn hyperpigmentatjon left.
So what is the Oxylight facial? It uses microdermabrasion, led light therapy, oxygen, ultrasound and Microcurrents. The ultrasound therapy is supposed to make serums penetrate more deeply. Light therapy, depending on the color, helps decrease acne, soothe inflammation, and increase collagen. The oxygen spray is supposed to detoxify the skin and felt like a fine cold mist on my face.
My favorite step was the microcurrents. The previous machines would give me a funny taste in my teeth and mouth. This one did not. Instead, it felt a bit prickly, and occasionally right over my temples and brow ridge would cause my facial muscles to twitch! I don’t know why, but it’s a weirdly satisfying sensation for me!
Of course my facial included lots of lymphatic massage that was strong and methodical. I have to mention this—for me, more than the gadgets, a good facial massage is the world!
💧 so would I do the oxylight facial again? While I loved how strong the current is, and do enjoy the other technology, the price is much higher ($350!) and I don’t know if it was worth it. I waited over a week to write this review to see if the effects would be longer lasting or better than my previous rescue experiences, and I would say not dramatically so. 💧I will keep trying the serums to help maintain my results! 💧I really want a microcurrent device for home… the sensation is oddly soothing for me!
That post facial glow!
