Summertime fun in the sun can leave your skin dry and dull by fall. That’s why Kurtzman Plastic Surgery is now offering Oxygen Infusion Facials to rehydrate and revitalize all skins types.
“The main concept of the facial is the oxygen infusion,” says Angela Baechle, medical aesthetician at Kurtzman Plastic Surgery. “This is not a normal facial you are going to find in a day spa. You will only find it at medical spas because it is a medical-driven treatment where people will notice the difference right away.”

Baechle says the process for an oxygen infusion facial is simple: An aesthetician will apply pressurized oxygen along with a special mix of two serums. The serums contain atoxelene, which is a topical botox and relaxes the muscles temporarily and fills in the lines and wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid, which contains several vitamins crucial for skin hydration.
The facial includes six treatments for the skin, performed once a week for six weeks. “You will see a visible difference in your skin for about seven to 10 days after the treatment,” explains Baechle, “with your skin looking the best two to three days after because this is when the serums are penetrating your derma layer.”
At Kurtzman Plastic Surgery, Baechle says, they like to treat half of a patient’s face first so that they can see the difference between the treated and untreated sides. “They should notice a subtle lift in the side we treated. It’s pretty dramatic comparing the two sides,” she adds.
This facial is also known as the “Celebrity Facial,” as many celebrities – such as Madonna – endorse it. Just because it’s popular with the stars, though, it doesn’t mean that you have to be one to afford it. Baechle says the service runs $175 at Kurtzman Plastic Surgery.
“We also have some customers who will pair the facial with dermaplaning, which is where we use a tool that takes off dead layers of skin,” says Baechle. The dermaplane is an additional $25 when paired with the facial.
According to Baechle, other treatments that are good for your skin at this time of year are their SkinMedica Vitalize Peels. “They are wonderful for sun damage, treating brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles,” adds Baechle. “It’s a larger blend of acids that will peel for five to seven days, but the results are amazing.”
