Intraceuticals Frequently Asked Questions

What is Intraceuticals? 

Intraceuticals is an Australian company specializing in oxygen technology. Intraceuticals was founded in 2002, and has offices in 59 countries.

How is Intraceuticals unique? 

Unlike other oxygen facials, which atomize or spray oxygen on the skin, the Intraceuticals Topical Hyperbaric Oxygen System uses therapeutic oxygen under hyperbaric pressure to infuse a special serum of modified hyaluronic acid, essential vitamins, botanicals, antioxidants and amino peptides to the skin. Re-hydrated plumped up skin in less than an hour will set this treatment apart from any other facial treatments.

What are Stephanies Therapists saying?

Stephanies therapists have gone through all the Intraceutical specific training components and techniques and agree the treatments are highly results orientated, leaving skin refreshed and instantly lifted. Our therapists are enthusiastic about achieving great results and, the Oxygen treatment as the perfect pre-makeup 3-step process as used by celebrities and socialites.

Intraceuticals Training Stephanies

Why is Intraceuticals unique?

Intraceuticals is more than just a facial; the combination of oxygen under pressure and modified hyaluronic acid creates a visible result you can instantly see and feel. Additionally, the application of pressurised oxygen increases the absorption of the Infusion which helps the skin retain hydration and moisture. Once hydration is balanced your skin will look and feel healthier and more vital – additionally many other common skin complaints will naturally disappear.

What does Topical Hyperbaric Oxygen mean?

Hyperbaric simply means the therapeutic use of oxygen delivered at above normal pressure.

How much oxygen is used in an Intraceuticals Infusion? 

Oxygen makes up between 18-21% of the atmosphere and is required to sustain life. The Intraceuticals System draws this oxygen and filters it to a concentration of 90-95% pure oxygen.

Why is oxygen used topically?

Oxygen is a natural bactericide (destroys anaerobic bacteria) and helps cool and calm the skin. Intraceuticals uses oxygen under pressure to enhance the skin’s absorption of the Intraceuticals Infusions.

How is oxygen applied to the skin?

When the tip of the Intraceuticals Oxygen Infuser is held at a 90-degree angle, 1mm or less from the skin surface, an oxygen “pressure bubble” is formed which increases the saturation of the external skin tissue (epidermis). This pressure also assists in the rapid absorption of the Intraceuticals Infusions.

Intraceuticals Oxygen Therapy

What does Infusion mean?

An Intraceuticals Infusion refers to the process of applying a hydrophilic (water-loving) Serum containing hyaluronic acid technology to the skin. Based on research originating in Australia, Intraceuticals identified a new, modified form of Hyaluronic Acid; this special type of Hyaluronic Acid has the same proven moisture binding benefits as traditional Hyaluronic Acid but because of its lighter weight, has the ability to target the skin where it not only deeply hydrates but also helps stimulate collagen synthesis. Additionally, it draws or carries other active and beneficial skin specific ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants, botanicals and amino peptides to the skin.

How does oxygen work on a cellular level?

Oxygen, breathed in from the atmosphere, flows into the lungs. From there haemoglobin in blood delivers the oxygen to the capillaries, then to the muscles and lastly to the cell’s mitochondria.

What is inhalation oxygen?

Inhalation oxygen involves breathing in oxygen at concentrations of between 90-95% pure oxygen. Inhalation oxygen has been shown to heighten concentration, alertness and memory and to provide a natural remedy for headaches, hangovers and jet lag. Inhalation oxygen is often used by professional athletes to speed muscle recovery after exertion.

Which skin conditions benefit from Intraceuticals?

Intraceuticals Infusions help increase the skin’s moisture levels and targets dry, dehydrated and prematurely ageing skin, sensitive skin, sensitized skin, sun damage, brown spots, skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, post-inflammatory pigmentation and problem-prone skin conditions.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is your body’s natural moisture factor and the ability to retain and hold moisture is the secret to youthful, healthy vibrant skin. As we age our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid which is thought to be one of the leading causes of skin ageing.

Why does Intraceuticals use Hyaluronic acid?

Intraceuticals leads the industry in new and novel uses of Hyaluronic Acid technology. The Intraceuticals Infusions and Treatment Support all utilize Hyaluronic Acid in different weights and forms to balance and support healthy skin function.

What are the Treatment Support Products?

The Treatment Support Products are specifically designed to intensify and maintain the results of an Intraceuticals Infusion.

What is lightweight Hyaluronic Acid?

Light Weight Hyaluronic Acid is the smallest and most easily absorbed form of Hyaluronic Acid. This special fast-acting form or Hyaluronic Acid is the foundation of all Intraceuticals Infusion Treatments and included in all Treatment Support Products. Naturally binds moisture within the skin and helps balance skin moisture levels for long-lasting moisturization. Helps Increases skin volume from within, defining and enhancing skin volume, smoothing and softening fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and redness reducer and significantly reduces the formation of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Helps cool and calm skin for sensitive or environmentally stressed skin (sunburn or windburn). Actively draws other beneficial skin ingredients to the deeper layers of the skin and increases absorption of all active ingredients – even from other product lines

What is Hyaluronic Layering?

Hyaluronic Layering uses three different types of Hyaluronic Acid; two different weights and one complex which work together to dramatically improve the way your skin attracts and holds moisture.

Can the Intraceuticals Infusion Treatment be used with other Stephanie’s skincare devices?

Intraceuticals Infusion treatments can be combined with microdermabrasion, and Stephanies iBeauty machine or another physical exfoliation method prior to an Intraceuticals Infusion. LED light is another beneficial combination to use prior to an  Intraceuticals Infusion and appears to greatly enhance an Intraceuticals Infusion Treatment.

Are the Intraceuticals skincare courses beneficial?

There are two options for courses, a Three-Course Kit and a Six-Course Kit which come with retail products for your home skincare regime. It’s not only cost-effective but these powerful courses have a cumulative effect and will have your skin looking improved for longer, with increased benefits of your take-home skincare.

Are there any contra-indications to an Intraceuticals Infusion?

The modified Hyaluronic technology will enhance absorption of all ingredients applied to the skin before or after an Intraceuticals infusion. For this reason – chemical peels should not be applied immediately before an Intraceuticals Infusions.
Additionally, unpredictable ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Retinol and Hydroquinone should not be applied immediately before or after an Intraceuticals Infusion. Ask your client to wait 24-48 hours before re-introducing AHA’s, Retinoic acid, or Hydroquinone to their home care regimen

Is it safe for all skin types? 

Intraceuticals Infusions can be used on sensitive, sensitized, and rosacea-prone skin conditions. May also be recommended as a cooling calming treatment for post-sun and wind exposed skin conditions.

Looking for just the right way to spend your 80th Birthday?

Well *clearing throat*; I’m going to introduce you all to Joyce Shepherd; the intrepid travelling mum of Stephanie Shepherd (CEO & Founder of Stephanies Luxury Spas).

Joyce

Joyce’s journeys have been far from fluffy white robes and grand marble entrances. For those who know her closely, they are currently waiting on a call to hear her tell them she has arrived safely home having just travelled from an isolated East Asian country. She’s travelled the world in places before the Lonely Planet guide was even thought of.

So last month while meeting with her regular coffee group, without further ado, she invited all five of them to her 80th Birthday party. The celebration to be held at her daughter’s luxury five star Spa Retreat. All friends swiftly RSVPed with the intent on enjoying Joyce’s grandiose spa birthday party. A completely new experience for all of her invited friends.

 

Spa RetreatWith a Wednesday booking at the spa organised, the ladies logistically set out from Northen NSW and drove themselves to the Robina Train Station. They promptly rode the 9 am train all the way into Brisbane’s Central Station and took the escalators direct to Level 3, Poolside Terrace, Sofitel Brisbane Central.

 

Stephanies Spa Retreat Manager Liz welcomes all her guests warmly and today was no different only that this was Stephanie’s Mum (whom Stephanie holds in high regard). No problem for Liz and her team of therapists; all ladies were gracefully shown their lockers, fluffy robes and souls thongs and greeted in the tranquillity lounge with a Stephanies Herbal Tea Infusion to relax into their spa journey.  

Spa Retreat Tranquillity

The ladies group were then ushered into the Sensory Spa and Manicure lounge to enjoy an Exotic Sole Ritual together. The lounge was a buzz with tales and laughter and the humorous deliberation on which Jessica colour polish to choose.  Joyce’s words;“I’m choosing red, happy feet.”

Sole Lounge

The final part of the ladies journey included sipping French Champagne and Sofitel’s famous French Style High Tea including, cheese boards, ribbon sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, French pastries exquisitely prepped and presented by the hotel’s top Chefs. Joyce was so proud to not only showcase Stephanies® beautiful Spa Retreat and to share this experience with her coffee ladies who had never seen her spa before but enjoyed treasured time with Stephanie too. Joyce proudly announced that “This is the best present I could have ever been given.”

High Tea

“You’re never too old to enjoy a spa celebration with friends,” says Stephanie.  Reservations for groups are personal and special occasions can be made memorable at Stephanie’s Day Spas.

Stephanies Luxury Spas Awards Night

Setting the basis for service industry standards around the globe, the World Luxury Spa Awards and World Luxury Restaurant Awards pride themselves on providing true recognition to luxury spas and restaurants in their relevant categories during its annual voting phase. Votes are garnered through various marketing channels from guests, showcasing yet again the true value of service excellence.

“The most coveted award on the evening is our Global Spa and Global Restaurant of the Year awards. Each year the task to determine these top establishments begins after voting has closed and we announce to our winners if they have been successful. We are six senior managers who take weeks to decide, as voting is not the only criteria we look at to bestow this prestigious award. A multitude of factors come in to play; brand, location, overall guest satisfaction from online reviews, services and facilities, design, and even menu offerings whether spa or restaurant. It is important to look at each establishment as an individual as well, some are on an island, some are in cities or in a desert, it is not always possible to compare apples with apples when defining luxury. This year the focus was on unique design with a touch of classy elegance, and we were as such proud to award Global Spa of the Year to Harnn Heritage Spa at InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, and Global Restaurant of the Year to Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. Both of whom encompass the ethos of luxury and supreme service.” says Joanna Evans, Marketing Communications Manager for the World Luxury Awards.

Entertainment fitting of the destination included a Dragon Dance, a Vietnamese based string quartet performance by Độc Cầm – Toxic Quartet, and a local Ao Dai Dance, all of which added to the evening’s Asian flair.
