How to Prepare
Oxygen Facials work especially great during the heat of summer. Here in Southern Ontario, summer days are filled with sunshine and beach days, which can lead to sun damage and sun burns if you’re not careful enough. The McLean Oxygen Facial is the best summer pick-me-up as it is a cool, soothing facial treatment that has absolutely zero heat factor to it. It will aid in the healing process of your skin after it has been exposed to the harmful UV rays emitted from the sun, and treat your skin after all its been through in the summer.
How It Works
The Oxygen Facial at McLean Clinic infuses the skin with the oxygen that it’s missing. The facial will start with a thorough cleanse and exfoliation of the skin. Then, pressurized pure hyperbaric oxygen is sprayed onto the surface of the skin with small, handheld machine that resembles an air brusher. This tool will infuse 84-90% pure oxygen deep into your pores as a skin treatment at the cellular level. Then, the oxygen is broken up and absorbed into the deep layers of your skin. This infusion process aids your skin’s absorption of the serum and skincare products applied afterwards, one of which is a facial mask that will help enhance the results from your facial.
The cooling, calming effects of the Oxygen Facial at McLean clinic will relieve and reduce the redness in the skin as well as stimulate cellular vitality by boosting the production of collagen and elastin in the facial complexion. This non-invasive, state of the art, revolutionary technique is a great way to boost the health levels of your skin while also providing you with anti aging effects.
The Oxygen Facial at McLean Clinic will dramatically improve the appearance of your skin by stimulating skin cells and fighting acne-causing bacteria. They have also been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also protecting the skin from sun damage and environmental stressors. The application of pure oxygen will assist in the absorption of skin treatment serums and skincare products applied afterwards, making them more effective to fight free radicals and protect the skin. The real benefit of the Oxygen Facial comes from its excellent ability to boost skin cell renewal to promote the natural production of the skin’s collagen and elastin.
For best results, a series of 6 treatments is recommended. The McLean Oxygen Facial can also be combined with microdermabrasion or skin tightening
procedures to magnify the results of your treatment.
Aftercare and Recovery

You will be able to apply lotion, cream, or makeup to the skin immediately afterwards, making it a perfect treatment for brides or before a big day. The application of pure oxygen to the skin will increase the level of hydration in your facial complexion and enhance your skin’s natural glow, which will keep makeup applied on top looking radiant and fresh throughout the day.
The Oxygen Facial is exceptionally gentle on the skin, making it suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types. It does not cause any irritation, swelling, redness, burning, or stinging sensations associated with stronger facial treatments and is perfect for those who would like to avoid invasive treatments that utilize chemicals or other strong ingredients.
