Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is a hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a type of treatment used to speed up healing by bringing oxygen-rich plasma to tissue starved for oxygen. Wound injuries and surgery damage the body’s blood vessels, which release fluid that leaks into the tissues ultimately causing swelling. The swelling deprives the damaged cells of oxygen, and tissues begin to die. HBOT reduces swelling while flooding the tissues with oxygen. The higher pressure in the chamber increases the amount of oxygen in the blood.
  • Room air contains 21% oxygen, while hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides 100% oxygen.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has become an increasingly popular hack among health-conscious individuals, biohackers, and athletes worldwide to enhance well-being and recovery programs.

What are the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

  • Reducing swelling and inflammation
  • Maximizing post-workout recovery
  • Enhancing the body’s collagen production for younger, healthier-looking skin
  • Assisting in faster bone regeneration by increasing osteoblast and osteoclast production
  • Decreasing inflammation by stimulating Superoxide dismutase (SOD), the most potent antioxidant and detoxification enzyme in the cell
  • Mobilizing and stimulating stem cells

Why is usage of the hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber in post-op surgery recovery beneficial?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) offers safe, natural, and efficient medical therapy for surgical wounds and incisions. HBOT addresses wound healing at a deep cellular level, enhancing formation of granulation tissues and synthesis of collagen. Our patients have seen a significant difference in the speed of post-op recovery healing when receiving HBOT.

Anti Aging

  • Aging is characterized by the loss of physiological capacity. Age-related diseases and degenerative maladies throughout the body are a growing concern world-wide.
  • Telomere attrition (telomere shortening), which is the gradual loss of the protective caps of our chromosomes, is one of the aging processes that happens within our bodies at a cellular level. Telomere attrition limits the number of times our cells can divide, slowly leading to the dwindling population of cells within vital organs. Critically short telomeres are associated with several age-related diseases.
  • Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to help combat degenerative conditions by contributing to the regeneration of tissue and blood vessels and lengthen telomeres. It also stimulates angiogenesis in areas of the body where circulation is compromised.
  • Hyperbaric therapy also promotes collagen activation to help battle the signs of aging including reducing skin damage and maintaining elasticity. Clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits for age-related degenerative conditions by providing cellular aid to all organs in the body to promote overall health and wellness.

Skin Rejuvenation and Treatment of Photoaging

  • Studies have shown that the use of high oxygen concentration to reduce the visibility of wrinkles have shown to be promising and effective to a certain degree since this treatment is currently being used and is becoming widespread in medical spas and clinics around the world.
  • Receiving regular treatments of HBOT is thought to increase skin elasticity and stimulate collagen production, leading to reduction of wrinkles and fine lines and improvement in skin texture. Oxygen is used in skin scarring because it is thought that delivery of natural oxygen increases cell metabolism.
