Oxygen — Skin needs oxygen and oxygen plays an important role in maintaining the appearance of healthy skin. Cutagenix topical hyperbaric oxygen (O2) emulsion creams can be used after procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, face lifts, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion to increase oxygen flow to the outer layers of skin. Cutagenix has been successful in soothing and calming irritated skin. Cutagenix topical O2 emulsion contains a unique ingredient called perfluorodecalin (PFD). PFD is a biocompatible material with a high affinity for oxygen; most applications utilize its ability to dissolve large amounts of oxygen (100 mL of PFD at 25°C will dissolve 49 mL of oxygen at standard temperature and pressure).
