My OxyGeneo Super Facial Experience at Mary Pauline Salon and Spa, Starmall Las Pinas

I have a confession. In my 20+ years of existence I only got to try a facial twice, and it was just the basic one. My first time was during college and the second was December last year. I also used to be just a soap and water kind of girl and only started with my skin care regimen last year. I know, I know! I'm such a late bloomer, I wasn't that meticulous with my skin and wasn't aware with its consequences then. 

My hesitation towards skin care products started during college days after trying out one local brand of facial wash and the effect on my skin was opposite to what the product claims to provide. And, I can't believe how painful a facial could get, that's why I'm kind of not fond of having facial treatments. Though now of course, I'm aware that there are actually many kinds of it, but maybe because I'm busy or just being frugal and thinking that my everyday skin care regimen is enough, so it never crossed my mind to try one of those other kinds of facials. 

So when I was invited to try out OxyGeneo Facial, I declined. Not! Haha. When an opportunity comes knocking on your door would you even dare say no? Of course not! Besides, the invitation came from a trusted name whom I've previously worked with, Mary Pauline Salon and Spa, Starmall Las Pinas. Yes I was surprised and happy at the same time to know that from their start up hair, manicure and pedicure service last October 2015, their service offerings have taken up a notch. Not only that, with only just over 6 months of service they have been awarded by Q Asia Magazine the SEAL OF QUALITY SERVICE AWARD. Well deserved, Congratulations!

Before introducing any product in her shop, Bianca make sure she tries it for herself firstAs evident on her look, you'll definitely see that she only offer top of the line service and products. 

When I got the invitation, I wasn't actually aware what OxyGeneo was but Bianca, the owner of Mary Pauline Salon and Spa, Starmall Las Pinas gladly explained what it was, and with few researches online, I found out that OxyGeneo is also called the "Super Facial" so I knew then that I was in for a treat. That same week, I organized my busy schedule and made sure to squeeze in my "OxyGeneo Facial" the following week. I was that excited!

You are probably excited too, so let's first get to know more about this Super Facial.



What is OxyGeneo?

OxyGeneo is clinically proven facial treatment that results in unparalleled skin nourishment & oxygenation, for smoother complexion and younger looking skin even in just 1 session. It is also called the 3-in-1 Super Facial or the Next Generation Facial.

What are the benefits of Oxygeneo?
  • RF facial contouring
  • Plump and hydrate
  • Restore skin volume
  • Renew youthful glow
  • Revitalize dull complexion
  • Reduce appearance of wrinkles
  • Firm skin and tighten pores
  • Improve skin cell production
  • Reduce appearance of pigmentation
  • Safe for ANY skin type! Treats sensitive skin without any irritation.

How does Oxygeneo feel? 

The OxyGeneo Facial session feels like a massage for the face and takes about 30 minutes only. It is very refreshing and comfortable. 

I felt so special because the first half of my OxyGeneo Facial was done by the owner itself, Bianca. She haven't changed a bit, she's as humble, kind and accommodating as the first time I met her. Throughout the procedure she made sure I'm aware of what she and her staff was doing by explaining thoroughly the steps. Talk about special treatment! Well actually, she's like this to all of their customers, above anything else she wants to make sure that everyone is treated fairly and accordingly.

How does OxyGeneo work?

1. Cleanse. 

2Exfoliate: Removal of dead cells, smooths and renews the skin, preparing it to receive active nutrients.

This process takes about 15 minutes. Using the hand device with a Capsugen, it exfoliates the skin and it also includes RF treatment which improves skin tone and texture. 

3Infuse: Cleanses the skin, preparing it for infusion of active ingredients: NeoRevive™  revitalizes a dull complexion making the skin smooth and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or NeoBright™  which lightens skin tone, minimizes the appearance of skin pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Active ingredients was then applied on my face. Since I have discolorations on my face we opted to use the  NeoBright™. 

NeoBright™ contains the following:
Azelaic acid - Even pigmentation
Kojic acid - Skin lightening
Retinol - Anti-aging

On the other hand, NeoRevive™ contains the following:
Hyaluronic acid - Wrinkle reduction
Peptides- Skin Repair
Retinol - Collagen renewal

This process felt a bit warm on the face but it's not irritating. It took about 4 minutes only.

4Oxygenation Produces CO2 bubbles which gently burst on the skin surface creating a physiological response, sending oxygen-rich blood to the area, resulting in optimal absorption of active ingredients.

This part was very relaxing as my face is being massaged, this process took about 4 minutes too. 

Here's a quick video of me while on session!
Conclusion:

After just 1 session, I immediately felt a difference.  My skin is then rich with oxygen and nutrients from the gels thus my face felt fresh, soft and supple. The whole treatment was relaxing and rejuvenating too. No irritation and no pain, compared to a regular facial treatment were your face gets pricked. It's also safe for any skin types, even if you have acne. What I also like about it is that it doesn't have any downtime, so after the treatment you can already resume with your routine and apply make up. Celebrities even schedule their OxyGeneo Facial right before an event for an instant glow!

For a long term benefit, it is advisable to have 4 to 6 weekly session then followed by a monthly maintenance.
I actually forgot to take a before and after session photo of my face.  However this photo above was taken the next day after my OxyGeneo Facial. Thanks again Bianca and to your  Mary Pauline Salon and Spa, Starmall Las Pinas family!
