WHAT IS OXY THERAPY

Oxy therapy is a technique for saturating skin cells with oxygen, moisture, and nutrients. Filling with moisture and oxygen increases the permeability of cell membranes so that the active substances are better absorbed. Thus, it is possible to achieve the same effect as with mesotherapy.
