Today I’m going to be talking about TriPollar Geneo or how you can have an oxygen facial at home.
I’m really excited to share the secrets of this tool.
I hate these commercials promising a flawless complexion, looking 10 years younger and showing a 16 year old girl whose only skin defects are a few freckles!
The truth is our skin is gonna get old and all we can really do is look our very best now.

Oxygen Facial at Home
Oxygenation is the trend these days in the beauty world. And for a good reason. It’s a real breakthrough in skin care.
So obviously a lot of companies started selling home oxygenation treatments, only that they don’t really work. That’s because most of them just throw oxygen at your skin but oxygen can’t penetrate your skin and enter your cells. If it could we probably wouldn’t need to breathe.
Geneo is a personal oxygenation beauty device for home use.
The company that makes Geneo previously made the TriPollar STOP and TriPollar POSE.
They also have an in-salon treatment device, which uses a combination of Radio Frequency, Ultrasound technology and Oxygenation.
This device harnesses the oxygenation element of the technology and it’s fantastic in terms of the results that it gives and the technology that it uses.
It’s normally something which can only be done in salons.
How Geneo Works
Geneo works by releasing lots of tiny C02 bubbles onto the surface of the skin. This triggers the body’s natural release of oxygen to the blood cells within the skin, boosting circulation and leaving you with a bright, glowing complexion after the treatment.
It’s a 2-in-1 device, so it also offers facial cleansing alongside oxygenation. It’s designed to exfoliate, oxygenate and nourish the skin.
During the treatment, work the device in circular motions to activate the capsule that will release CO2 bubbles.
You will feel a few different sensations.
You should do a small sensitivity patch test first to assess your reaction.
Once finished, wash your face with warm water and pat dry with a towel or cloth before applying some anti-aging cream.
Now I’m gonna explain the science behind Geneo.
Real oxygenation of your skin happens when oxygen reaches the skin cells from inside the body. Pollogen’s unique technology doesn’t put oxygen on your skin but creates a layer of CO2 bubbles on the face, causing the body to release oxygen to the skin cells. In science it’s called the Bohr effect.
The oxygen of the skin cells then increases the flow of blood in tiny vessels and encourages skin rejuvenation. That’s real oxygenation.
With Geneo, they’ve found a way to shrink their technologies so you can also use it at home.
Here’s how it works.
First you exfoliate the skin.
Then the CO2 molecules are released so the oxygen molecules in the bodies flow towards them.
Lastly you pamper your skin with nutrient-rich active ingredients.
That’s it. Just a few minutes and your skin looks very best for days.
So if you want to look yourself, only better in just a few minutes with home oxygenation that actually works, get Geneo.
How to Use Geneo
In case you’ve missed it, oxygenation brings oxygen to skin cells, helps boost the circulation in tiny blood vessels and makes the skin look fresh and glowing.
Geneo is made by Pollogen, inventors of the proven medical grade oxygenation technology already used in tens of thousands of clinics worldwide.

Is Geneo Worth It?
The Geneo costs $199. Having the same treatment just once in the salon is usually between $120 and $150. It does vary and 9 out of 10 times you have to have a few treatments. It tends to be a course of 3, 6 or 8 treatments in the salon.
So, this type of oxygen facial at home is really worth it.
