In his career, Samuel Lehrer has worked with some of the world’s most advanced and highly-specialized medical equipment, such as hyperbaric oxygen chambers used in various therapies today. Below, he comments on the beauty industry’s use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to achieve anti-aging results.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has gained a lot of positive recognition in the medical industry where it is used to treat a range of issues, from expedited wound healing to novel therapies for patients with autism. Professionals like Samuel Lehrer who’ve worked with the equipment have witnessed the rise in popularity of the machine and its implementation into a number of industries.
The beauty industry is one of the latest to apply the technology in their procedures and it has already gained a lot of traction with beauty facilities across the country.
“In HBOT, patients are either gathered into a specially equipped room or else go on their own into one of the therapy machines where high concentrations of oxygen are administered along with increased pressure,” says Samuel Lehrer. “This has proven to have a positive effect on the body’s natural healing agents, which can be used to treat a variety of conditions and concerns. In the beauty industry, it’s helping to restore youthful cells, among other things.”
The use of high oxygen and increased pressure ultimately helps tissues regenerate much faster than they would normally. Low oxygen levels are often associated with aging and certain diseases or conditions that can be detrimental to one’s health. However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and non-invasive way of replenishing healthy cells and tissues to act as they would in more youthful states.
Aging happens to our bodies gradually, but other factors like drinking, poor diet, smoking, using drugs, and spending too much time in the sun can speed up the aging process exponentially. Increased oxygen and pressure through HBOT can fight back degeneration by helping repair injured or aging cells and organs.
This can have major benefits for beauty patients as the therapy can reduce skin damage from sun exposure, increase the production of collagen, reduce wrinkles, and maintain or improve the skin’s natural elasticity.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has also proven in many cases to suppress inflammation, acting as a detoxification to fight back cell damage. This can help people maintain a healthy, youthful complexion while also increasing defenses against life-threatening illnesses that stem from chronic inflammation. As a result, the beauty industry has increased interest in the therapy, often looking to it as a modern-day Fountain of Youth type solution for natural anti-aging treatments.
“The effects of HBOT are undeniable, whether patients are looking to heal their bodies or simply look and feel better,” says Samuel Lehrer. “I think many more subsets of the health and beauty industries will begin to find new purposes for the breakthrough therapy soon.”
