Most people aren’t aware that I had severe acne when I was much younger and you can be that I’ve tried everything under the sun to improve my skin’s condition. From invasive & abrasive “deep-poor facials” to microdermabrasion and countless over-the-counter and prescription medications that left the rest of my body in conditions that I would never wish on anyone. I changed my diet and had my poor mother limit and restrict some of the things coming into the home.
I guess I eventually out grew the condition but I occasional get that irritating zip or annoying blemish that I try to cover up; so I’m always on the look-out for procedures and products that won’t cause irritation or more damage. Enter Pollogen’s OxyGeneo 3-in-1 super facial!
A breakthrough skin revitalizing treatment that employs the well-established science behind the physiological phenomenon called the Bohr effect to oxygenate skin from within prior to exfoliation and deep infusion of potent regenerating nutrients.
The compact Geneo platform causes the Bohr effect – the same chemical response that occurs naturally in hot springs – when its exclusive Capsugen and nutrient-rich gel interact on the skin’s surface. While the Capsugen cleanses and exfoliates, minute CO₂ rich bubbles gently burst on the skin’s surface, driving oxygen-rich blood to the treated area. This increases the metabolism of skin cells and promotes optimal absorption of nutrients including hyaluronic acid – a natural smoothing and plumping agent found in popular injectable fillers.
Let me put that in simple english. The Capusen being an attachment that exfoliates the face infuses the skin with CO2 and drives oxygen-rich blood to the area. Making the face smoother, plumper and smooth similar to many painful fillers that only adminstered through injections! Needles scare the crap out of me – no thanks!
For patients with darker skin or sun spots, OxyGeneo’s NeoBright gel lightens and brightens with azelaic acid, kojic acid and retinol, while the NeoRevive gel repairs and regenerates with hyaluronic acid, peptides and retinol.
After my 15-minute facial (and that’s a bonus too, it’s so quick!) I noticed immediate results with my skin feeling softer, brighter and completely refreshed. And you know what else is great? The fact that the face isn’t left red or swollen like one finds with other facial procedures!

Treatment cost ranges from $125 to $200 per treatment and is available at select medical spas and clinics in Canada. Visit Geneo for locations and before & after photos.
