OXYGEN FACIAL IN SEATTLE, BELLEVUE, AND KIRKLAND
Celebrities have many tips and tricks for getting red carpet ready. From expensive products, clean diets, and professional skincare, many of these can seem unattainable for the average person. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer one of the most widely used facials in Hollywood: the oxygen facial. This non-surgical procedure is one of the secrets to the smooth, glowing skin seen on red carpets and Instagram. The master estheticians at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery offer the oxygen facial in Seattle, Bellevue, and Kirkland.
WHAT IS AN OXYGEN FACIAL?
The oxygen facial is a professional facial that delivers essential vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, other hydrators, and, of course, oxygen straight into the skin for a full face glow and rejuvenation. Furthermore, the facial is non-abrasive and safe for all skin types.
How Does It Work?
The oxygen facial uses highly pressurized oxygen to gently deliver beneficial serums into your skin. These serums can contain a multitude of ingredients like hyaluronic acid, green tea, and a variety of vitamins including A, C, and E. In addition to delivering necessary vitamins through the serums, the oxygen facial increases oxygen on your skin’s surface.
Oxygen is vital for the health of human cells. While we take in oxygen when we breathe, only a fraction of this oxygen is delivered to the skin. Combined with other skin irritants, aging and sun exposure, oxygen supplied to the skin decreases. Time, certain environments, and habits can also affect oxygen available to the skin. Consequently, this can contribute to the health of your skin and lead to dull looking skin. Especially when it comes to the natural signs of aging, your skin needs more oxygen to look its best.
With an oxygen facial, your master esthetician increases the oxygen present on your skin by adding it directly to the skin. This has many benefits. When the serums are added to the facial, it provides powerful, non-irritating skin rejuvenation.
BENEFITS OF AN OXYGEN FACIAL
A Bellevue oxygen facial has many benefits for your skin. Along with obtaining an instantly noticeable glow, oxygen facials can boost and supplement your skincare routine. Also, many choose to have the procedure one to two days before an event because of the glow it instantly restores. Other benefits of an oxygen facial can include:
- More even skin tone

WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES?
Nearly anyone is a good candidate for a Kirkland oxygen facial. As a non-invasive facial that does not deeply exfoliate, the facial should not irritate the skin. In fact, the oxygen facial is often recommended for those with sensitive skin. Additionally, the master estheticians at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery also recommend the oxygen facial to patients looking for a quick way to brighten their skin.
Most of the time, your master esthetician will agree that an oxygen facial will benefit you and your skincare goals. However, there may be certain situations where the procedure is not ideal. This would include if you are allergic to ingredients present in the serum or if you require more invasive procedures. Even in the last case, an oxygen facial may aid other procedures or calm redness.
Therefore, before undergoing the procedure, your master esthetician will ensure that the procedure benefits your skincare routine and goals.
What Does It Treat?
The oxygen facial is a wonderful addition to any skincare routine. It is also safe for and may ease some skin conditions and concerns. Your master esthetician may include oxygen facial treatments as part of your personalized skincare plan.
While the oxygen facial is not a medical procedure, it can support many treatments and also may improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Dry skin
Regular facials can also enhance more invasive treatment methods for these skin conditions. Because the oxygen facial is not fully exfoliating compared to other esthetic services like dermaplaning or skin peels. However, an oxygen facial is easy to combine with these treatments for exfoliation and an immediate glow.

BEFORE AND AFTER THE OXYGEN FACIAL IN BELLEVUE
Your Skincare Consultation
Before receiving your oxygen facial, your master esthetician will want to gain a full understanding of your skin and goals. Your comprehensive skincare consultation will consist of a conversation that discusses your skin concerns, conditions, and medical history. This is then followed by a quick physical examination of your skin. Your Bellevue master esthetician will personalize a skincare regimen that will start you on the journey to achieving your skin goals.
If you have received the oxygen facial before and want the procedure in preparation for an event, your master esthetician may not require another consultation to determine if you are a candidate. For new patients, your master esthetician may recommend a package of facials that begins with six weekly facials before going down to bi-monthly. This is recommended to maintain a healthy glow.
The Oxygen Facial Procedure
If an oxygen facial is part of your skincare plan, your master esthetician may perform the treatment the same day. It usually takes around one hour to complete. You will lay back comfortably throughout the facial and should feel no pain or discomfort.
Firstly, to begin your oxygen facial in Bellevue, your master esthetician will cleanse your face. They will then apply hyaluronic acid and other desired serums. Then, using the specialized oxygen facial machine, they will lightly run the wand over your face. Most patients find the facial relaxing and enjoyable.
Beyond all the wonderful benefits of the facial, the procedure is also highly customizable. For example, if you tend to break out on your chin, your master esthetician can focus the facial there.
Additionally, you can further personalize your facial by adding on other esthetic procedures. Many patients choose to combine their oxygen facial with dermaplaning because dermaplaning exfoliates and removes dead skin. This can increase the effectiveness of the oxygen facial and lead to longer lasting results.
It is also common to stagger esthetic procedures. However, with an oxygen facial, you can safely receive one on an almost weekly basis. You can also receive it after other procedures like laser resurfacing and RF microneedling. It may even benefit after facial plastic surgery procedures or surgical CO2 laser resurfacing.
As mentioned above, an oxygen facial is unlikely to cause any skin irritation or side effects. It also does not have any specific recovery protocol because it does not deeply exfoliate the skin. Patients normally return to their daily activities and skincare routines immediately following a Kirkland oxygen facial.
If you undergo an exfoliation treatment prior to your oxygen facial, you may experience some side effects. However, the facial may actually calm any redness or irritation caused from an exfoliation treatment like dermaplaning or chemical peels. Some patients may even find relief from sunburns or other types of irritation during an oxygen facial. In these cases, you should consult with your master esthetician to ensure the procedure is right for you and the situation.
Additionally, the oxygen facial is the perfect pre-event procedure. It gives your skin a natural glow for a wedding, reunion, or other occasion where you want to look your best. Typically, you will want to receive your Bellevue facial about 2-3 days before the event for the best results.
