Breathe Oxygen-Rich Air

If you live in an area with poor air quality or want to elevate your body’s healing processes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy at Sykes Facial Plastic Surgery can allow your lungs to breathe in more oxygen-rich air, absorbing more oxygen molecules into your bloodstream.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy happens in a sealed, pressurized chamber with two to three times more air pressure than outside air. The specialized chamber delivers 100% pure oxygen, allowing you to breathe much more oxygen into your cells than the air within the environment, which is generally packed with nitrogen, pesticides, heavy metals, and other pollutants. The high-pressure atmosphere of the hyperbaric oxygen chamber passively drives the oxygen through your tissues into the blood, allowing it to carry a more significant amount of oxygen to your body parts. This helps repair injured tissues, fight infections, increase energy levels, and more.

Am I a Candidate?

Any injury to the body’s tissue needs even more oxygen for proper healing, which is why hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat a variety of medical conditions, even very severe ones. When prescribed by a doctor, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can generally safely and effectively support your healing with minimal risk of complications. The best way to know if you may be a candidate is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Sykes, so he can evaluate your physical condition and determine if the treatment is right for you.

What is the Procedure Like?

When your session begins, the air pressure within the hyperbaric oxygen chamber will increase along with the oxygen content. You may experience temporary pressure in your ears, much like what you may feel at high altitudes or in an airplane. You can relieve the pressure by swallowing or yawning.

As you breathe in the oxygen-filled air, your lungs absorb the added oxygen molecules into your bloodstream, offering many physiological benefits. Most sessions can be completed within one or two hours, depending on the nature of your condition, and you will feel revitalized by the time it’s finished.

The Recovery Process

After your session, Dr. Sykes may check your blood pressure and pulse; patients with diabetes may also have their blood glucose checked. Although you may feel a little hungry or sleepy following the treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy will not require you to limit your activities. Most patients experience require multiple sessions for optimal results, depending on the medical condition being treated.
