Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that supplies you with 100% pure oxygen. Breathing in pure oxygen helps the body to heal wounds and damaged tissue by stimulating the new growth of blood vessels and connected tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment that offers proven medical benefits for a wide range of medical conditions.  Learn more about the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy performed at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery in Delray Beach, FL.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. This treatment helps your lungs to absorb over three times as much oxygen as normal. The oxygen then helps your body’s tissues to heal and fight off any infections. Many medical professionals use hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a wound treatment for post-surgery healing and recovery. Most individuals receive HBOT for one to two hours each session. This outpatient treatment allows you to relax while your lungs absorb air from the oxygen-rich room.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Candidates

  • Bodily trauma
  • Severe anemia
  • Skin grafts
  • Radiation injuries
  • Loss of vision
  • Hearing loss

There are many other uses for hyperbaric oxygen therapy that have not been approved by the FDA just yet. These include treatment for the following conditions:

  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Depression
  • Alopecia
  • Migraines

The best way to determine if you are an ideal candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment is through a private consultation with one of our doctors at 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery.

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment

During the HBOT treatment, you will sit in a special oxygen-filled room where you will breathe normally. In the room, you may hear a hissing noise as the device releases pure oxygen for you to inhale. This oxygen will help your immune system fight off bacteria and will stimulate the production of stem cells. Stem cells help to create blood cells, muscle cells, and brain cells. As your session ends, your doctor will decrease the pressure levels in the chamber to help your body adjust to the pressure outside. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions will last one to two hours and should be scheduled one to five days a week depending on your medical concern. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Recovery

After your session, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your results will not emerge until after you have received several oxygen therapy sessions. It is important to follow your treatment plan to see your full results.
