Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the most outstanding of all therapies. Natural, Drug free & safe therapy with no side effects that will help you “look & feel your best” and “adding years to your life & life to your years”. There is no other anti-aging and wellness therapy that is so effortless and yet so effective.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves the quality of life, a potentially great longevity and anti aging tool since it multiplies the stem cells, keeps it healthier so they can repair our bodies and rejuvenate.
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Cosmetic Surgery:
Patients recovering from cosmetic surgery need to exercise extra care to ensure that tissues receive enough oxygen during the healing process. HBOT in conjunction with cosmetic surgery is an effective way to expedite the healing process and shorten the recuperation time by approximately 50%.
HBOT is a safe way to decrease pain, swelling, bruising, redness and inflammation in the tissues, resulting in less discomfort and scarring after surgery.
Important effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy would be the stimulation of leukocyte microbial killing, the enhancement of fibroblast replication, and increased collagen formation and neovascularization of ischemic tissue.
HBOT accelerates healing in patients undergoing face lifts, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, tummy tucks, liposuction, breast reduction or augmentation and many other procedures. After HBOT, circulating stem cells, which are crucial to the repair of injured tissues increase by eightfold.
HBOT stimulates the natural production of collagen and has an anti-bacterial effect that reduces the risk of infection. Additionally, scars are minimized and many patients report discontinued use of pain medication after 24 hours.
To site a few procedural benefits:
After a laser peel, lingering redness is a problem for many patients. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is known to be exceedingly effective for laser peels. The bruising goes away faster, swelling decreases faster, and the patients actually feel better overall.
In hair transplantation, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases collagen production, and enhances chances of hair follicle growth after re-implantation.
For liposuction, hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps the swelling decrease much faster, which results in less post-operative discomfort hence less of patient down time.
Hyperbaric therapy before and after surgery increases the availability of oxygen to damaged tissues and cells, speed up time of healing, decreases patient down time and greatly reducing the chance of infection. Enhanced delivery of oxygen to the surgical site allows the body to regenerate cells quickly, which reduces scarring and improves the appearance of a cosmetic procedure’s final result.
A typical cosmetic surgery HBOT protocol involves two to three treatment pre-surgery and four to six treatments post-surgery.
More and more cosmetic surgeons are incorporating hyperbaric oxygen therapy into their pre and post-operative programs.
