[box] “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” Confucius[/box]
Segun Garuba-Okelarin, beauty, skincare, and well-being writer, immerses herself into the definition of beauty in her blog. She writes: “So what is beauty? Is it defined by the symmetry of your face, is it your age, colour, race, bone structure, gender, body shape, weight or how flat your stomach is? Or maybe it’s defined by what you see in the media or by popular culture and trends?”
We believe beauty is, in fact, in the eye of the beholder, but what we perceive as beautiful has much to do with well-being, vitality and some invisible life force that radiates through people’s skin, eyes, and smile. It resonates in their laughter and gives them a particular attraction beyond their physical features. So, where does it come from, and what is it?
Beauty from Within
Breathing pure oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber under at least 1.6 ATA of pressure has favourable effects on our well-being. During the hyperbaric treatment, oxygen is dissolved in plasma and thus more easily transported to every body cell. As a result, cells regain new fuel and their performance peaks, leaving you with some amazing results – one of which is that certain something we call beauty.
AHA Aesthetic Solution combines top-notch hyperbaric technology, knowledge, and skills to bring out the beauty from within. With AHA Aesthetic Solution, you can:
- slow down the ageing process on a cellular level,
- get anti-stress effects,
- have a favourable impact on the appearance of cellulite and scars,
- have a favourable effect on the skin, which becomes more supple, flexible and resistant to external influences,
- have a favourable effect on skin changes,
- improve poor posture, which is a consequence of involuntary posture and lack of physical activity
- reduce body tension and fatigue.
As we know, telomere length, which can be affected by various lifestyle factors, can affect the pace of ageing and onset of age-associated diseases. A research on how hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases telomere length by several authors proves that telomeres length of T helper, T cytotoxic, natural killer and B cells increased significantly by over 20% following HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy). As a result, we can say that by prolonging telomeres, we can in fact influence the effects the ageing processes in our body.
The beauty industry in general faces many challenges. One of them is the impact it has on people and our environment. Therefore, the whole industry strives to be more transparent, traceable, and sustainable. We carefully select materials, processes, equipment, and protocols to create our AHA Aesthetic Solution to leave the smallest possible carbon footprint while getting the results you desire. AHA Aesthetic Solution:
- is non-invasive
- uses only a small amount of energy
- does not use chemicals
- is bio-compatible
Self-Care Never Grows Old
But people do. Growing old brings an array of trouble people are constantly trying to reverse. Anti-ageing is not just a trend – it is a now real possibility with real effects when done correctly. Beneficial hyperbaric therapy utilising pure oxygen supply regenerates damaged cells in the human body and prevents further damage. Users inhale more oxygen than normal due to the exposure to a high-pressure environment, allowing more oxygen to be distributed to the damaged tissue, leading to a quicker recovery.
There is no age limit to using a hyperbaric treatment. Actually, the sooner you start, the easier it is for oxygen to have a more significant impact on your body. So while AHA Aesthetic Solution cannot really turn back the time, they can effectively help you battle some of the consequences ageing brings.
Supporting Beauty Enhancement
Statistics reveal a steady upward trend in cosmetic enhancements, with an increase in both surgical and minimally invasive procedures. Nonsurgical options may be performed as standalone treatments or as complementary to aesthetic surgery to address a broader range of cosmetic concerns. Additionally, many patients prefer to choose natural options, such as HBOT over synthetic alternatives to achieve their rejuvenation goals.
Hyperbaric oxygen is now available to patients undergoing cosmetic surgery. A unique protocol of using hyperbaric oxygen before and after cosmetic surgery can reduce pain and swelling, improve circulation, speed up the recovery process by a third, and even improve results. It can be used before and after:
- face lifts
- eyelid and breast surgery
- nasal reconstruction
- abdominal surgery
- chemical and laser peels
Among aesthetic surgical procedures, abdominoplasty poses the highest rate of postoperative complications. Preoperative HBOT can reduce postoperative complication rate in abdominoplasty patients. A study on how hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning can reduce postabdominoplasty complications shows that postoperative complications were significantly reduced from 32.6% (89 patients) to 8.4% (7 patients).

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy optimises the oxygenation (and thus the healing potential) of tissue prior to surgery and accelerates wound healing post-operatively.” Source[/box]
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can improve recovery from:
- orthopaedic procedures
- injuries such as an ACL tear
- decrease bruising and swelling post plastic surgery
- and improve tissue healing after cancer surgeries.
HBOT has for example great results as an adjuvant therapy for hair transplantation surgery. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is able to minimise the postsurgical follicle shedding and lead to less folliculitis and itching, which provides evidence for HBOT to act as an adjuvant therapy for hair transplantation surgery.
With increasing availability of chambers and studies proving the benefits of use, HBOT should be considered as an essential part of the overall management strategy for plastic surgeons. According to a study on the effect of perioperative hyperbaric oxygen on bruising in face-lifts, hyperbaric oxygen therapy offers patients a statistically significant, perioperative adjunctive therapy that decreases bruising in patients undergoing face-lift by 35%.
However, we need to state that mild HBOT will not suffice in most medical cases. In order to get results, patients need to get a series of hyperbaric treatments at 1.8 or for the most part 2.0 ATA. AHA Aesthetic Solution comes with high-end technology and what is more important – the protocols for treating post-surgery trauma or for giving patient a non-invasive method to achieving their goals.
AHA Aesthetic Solution works as an independent method of achieving beauty-enhancing results but can also perform as a means to a better, faster and above all-natural recovery after surgical procedures. Our clients are rehabilitation centres, wellness studios, medical practices, hospitals, clinics and above all, aesthetic clinics. We create a personalised solution for each establishment that fits their needs exactly. If you want to join them, contact us.
