What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation encompasses a variety of treatments focused on repairing your skin from any damage or irregular changes.
These treatments can benefit skin that is naturally wrinkling or sagging due to loss of collagen from aging that causes skin to become less firm and glowy. They can also help with textural or color irregularities from acne scars, freckles, sunspots, or visible blood vessels. [2,3]
What causes skin damage?
Skin damage or irregularities can be contributed to one or multiple of the following:
- UV radiation from the sun
- Hereditary predispositions
- Underlying health conditions [2,3]
What are the most common types of skin rejuvenation treatments?
There are many different types of skin rejuvenation methods that can be utilized depending on your personal preferences and what would work best to revitalize your unique skin damage.
Some of the most common ones include:
- Chemical peels
- Laser treatments
- Microdermabrasion and dermabrasion
- Dermal fillers
- Botox [2,3]
Are there any risks associated with skin rejuvenation treatments?
With some of the treatments above incorporating lasers and chemicals that can adversely affect sensitive skin, there are some risks associated such as:
- Allergic reactions
- Skin texture or spot color changes
- Delayed wound healing 
What conditions can skin rejuvenation treatment help?
Some of the skin rejuvenation treatments discussed above can help people battling the following conditions:
- Wrinkles, both static and dynamic
- Pigmentation (from freckles or sun spots)
- Scars (from acne or injury)
- Vascular conditions
- Weakened skin tone
- Dull skin 
How can hyperbaric oxygen therapy help your skin?
By immersing your body in an atmosphere of 100% oxygen, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) increases new collagen and skin cell production by allowing new blood vessels to grow. Additionally, it encourages cells to produce substances such as vascular endothelial growth factors that attract and stimulate certain types of cells needed for healing. 
Research studies and clinical trials are continuously being conducted to further analyze the ways in which HBOT can be used for skin rejuvenation, treatment of photoaging skin (skin that has been prematurely aged by the sun), and improvement of skin complexion. 
Many of these studies are especially interested in how HBOT reduces the formation of wrinkles from chronic UV radiation due to everyday exposure to the harsh rays of the sun. 
Additionally, unlike other skin rejuvenation options, HBOT is completely noninvasive and offers little to no side effects for people interested in a more natural treatment.
