HBOT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

What is HBOT?

HBOT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy means overpressure or high-pressure. So in Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), you will be breathing in 100% oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure. You will be resting in a pressurized chamber to a higher level than atmospheric pressure. In an HBOT chamber, the air pressure is increased from two to three times higher than normal air pressure. This pressurized condition allows the lungs to receive more oxygen than under normal air pressure. This therapy is used clinically in different ways to treat several medical conditions.

How is HBOT beneficial for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures?

Having plastic surgery or any other cosmetic procedure can be a very exciting time in your life, but we all know beauty can cause pain.

The good news is that plastic surgery recovery doesn’t have to be like this anymore! Many women and men are choosing to have hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in conjunction with their cosmetic procedures.

Safe and Speedy Recovery

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a truly safe way to alter the inflammatory process, helping in wound healing by decreasing pain and swelling, inflammation, and possible infection. Patients utilizing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy after cosmetic surgery not only have a shorter recuperation period, but also show less scarring.
