Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Healing
The best thing to do post surgery is to focus on the healing process. For a quick recovery time, with less pain, less scars, and less infections, the best thing that can be done is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Plastic surgery recovery for a healthy individual can be up to 75% faster using HBOT before and after surgery. Plastic surgery patients can not only can return to work faster post-surgery, but can do so with less bruising and swelling.
There are many benefits to taking advantage of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, as it can:
• Help resolve unexpected complications post-surgery
• Greatly speed up recovery time
• Dramatically reduce post-surgical bruising, swelling, and inflammation
Safe and Speedy
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.
Great Choice for Patients with Healing Hardships
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also a great option for patients who could potentially have problems with the healing process. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is great for patients who may have had issues with smoking, weight, immune system, or even incision infections.
How it Works
Red blood cells are the body’s repair system, using oxygen to fuel cell reparative processes such as cell proliferation, bacterial defense, as well as collagen and angiogenesis synthesis. Inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, oxygen abides by Henry’s Universal Gas laws. This law makes oxygen soluble, saturating red blood cell plasma and cerebrospinal fluid. Depending on the treatment, a patient could potentially leave the chamber saturated with up to twenty times their normal oxygen levels. With your body’s red bloods saturated with oxygen twenty fold, cells have the ability to rapidly increase their reparative processes.
