When it comes to aging, many of us hope to age gracefully and hold on to our vibrant and youthful skin for as long as possible. And thanks to the billion dollars anti-aging industry, that spends millions of dollars on advertisements and celebrity endorsements, we have tons of options to “trust” and choose from, that will help us maintain our youthful glow for as long as possible. Truth is though; research has proven that the results of these products don’t always last, and they don’t always work, the reason being they are topical and not reaching below the surface of the skin where aging begins at a cellular level. But, there is one treatment that’s hugely effective, can dramatically slow down the body’s aging process, and it’s one of Hollywoods best-kept secrets, and that’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).
When people read about or think about HBOT, they usually don’t associate it with anti-aging products, but the truth is, this method of therapy is not just for treating illnesses like decompression sickness and diabetic wound healing, it’s also an essential component in skin rejuvenation too. Let’s face it, aging is inevitable, but if there are treatments that can help us stay healthy, have more energy and feel and look younger, why not give it a try, especially when the procedure is non-invasive, painless and free of chemicals.
Here is how HBOT works. By breathing in 100 percent pure oxygen, your body’s antioxidant defenses will get a boost, enhancing its capacity to fight free radicals. Also, it will improve your metabolism (helping you to lose weight) and counteract the hypoxia (low oxygen level) that slows cell activity causing oxidative strain. Research has proven that oxygen therapy improves the blood flow by aiding the cell membranes flexibility and fighting infections by destroying bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi that flourish in low-oxygen environments that don’t have the antioxidant resources to fight back. In other words, HBOT will plump up your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, boost your energy and help you lose weight, with long-lasting lustrous results. How incredible is that?
