Hi and welcome.
My name is Andrew Thompson and I will be the therapist performing your Intraceuticals Serum Infusion.
This treatment is ultra relaxing yet very effective. It is performed immediately following Diamond Microdermabrasion to ensure that your skin and pores are clean and prepped to receive the serum.
The serum is applied to the skin with a small air gun which infuses medical grade oxygen, along with the serum, through the epidermis and into the deeper dermal layer. Think injectables but without the needles.
Apart from being pain-free, another big advantage over injectables is that oxygen is forced into the skin as well, and oxygen is essential for new collagen production.
CO2 Intraceuticals is an Australian company with an international reputation.
I have been using their Serum Infusion products for well over a decade in my Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Rockhampton studios.
Below, you will find Prices plus a handy Question & Answers section.
Have a brilliant day.
Prices - Hyperbaric Oxygen Serum Infusions by Intraceuticals
Diamond Microdermabrasion is necessary prior to receiving a Hyperbaric Oxygen Infusion to ensure that your skin is clean and receptive to treatment. Micro is included in the price.
The IPL Acne combo prices included below are for clients who want to address an acne outbreak at the same time. The price assumes that it is the same full area. If only a small area is affected, we'll invent a custom price when you come in.
FAQ - Hyperbaric Oxygen Serum Infusions by Intraceuticals
What can I expect from this treatment?
Immediately after, your skin will look noticeably firmer, your pores will be smoother, your skin tone more even, and your face shape will look softer and more full. And the results won't end there. The nutrients go very deep and you will see their effects for weeks to come.
No facial treatment on the market delivers better results than Reef's range of Intraceuticals Serum Infusions.
I've had normal oxygen infusions before. How do hyperbaric oxygen infusions differ?
Unless the oxygen is applied at hyperbaric pressure, then oxygen facials are just a gimmick. Hyperbaric pressure forces oxygen into the skin at around 1.5 atmospheres which allows deep penetration of the dermal layers. The serum travels with it, transporting hyaluronic acid, nutrients, oxygen, and anti-inflammatories to do their magic.
Is there any medical foundation to the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen?
The machine we use produces medical grade oxygen by filtering the air in the room into tanks within the unit. It was originally invented in the early 2000s as a less intrusive way to treat the wounds of burns victims. It then found its way into the beauty industry, and more recently is used in hospitals to deliver chemotherapy to breast cancer patients.
What's in the serums you use?
Four serums are available but two key ingredients in all CO2 Intraceuticals serums are hyaluronic acid which is the same compound used in injectable fillers to make the face appear more plump, and green tea extract, a powerful anti-oxidant to help eliminate free radicals that cause dull and uneven appearance in your skin.
What sort of preparation do I need?
If possible, come in without makeup, moisturiser, or sunscreen as this will have to be removed before the treatment.
Can I just get this treatment without doing Microdermabrasion?
No. You need the skin thoroughly clean and the pores clear for the serums to be properly absorbed.
Can I combine Hyperbaric Serum Infusions with other treatments?
You can only combine Hyperbaric Serum Infusions with IPL Acne Removal at the same session in the same treatment area. This is due to the highly moisturised state of your skin.
Other treatments such as IPL Photo Rejuvenation and RF Skin Tightening create moderate heat during treatment and are performed on dry skin in order to minimise the risk of skin trauma, so you are best to leave those treatments for a few days after your Serum Infusion.
Of course, I am only talking about skin treatments in the same area. If it's somewhere else, sure, no problem.
