Eastside Primary Care and Wellness / Suh Esthetics is home to hyperbaric oxygen therapy for wellness in Bellevue, Washington. Hyperbaric chambers are used to deliver higher oxygen concentration to your body vs. just breathing air at regular pressure.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, also known as “HBOT”, is a self contained chamber with an air compressor and oxygen concentrator pumping air into the chamber to pressure that has been FDA cleared for multiple health conditions, such as decompression sickness, air/gas embolism, carbon monoxide poisoning, crush injury, radiation injury, thermal burn injury, compromised skin graft or flap, among others.
However, recent research here in the US and around the world has shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been helpful for post surgical wound healing from plastic surgery to orthopedic surgery where blood vessel and circulation might be compromised from incision and swelling. What we are most excited about with hyperbaric oxygen therapy is its regenerative potential as an anti-aging treatment. The higher level of oxygen has shown to proliferate and mobilize stem cells from bone marrow and plays a key role in restoring and enhancing body function to accelerating repair of aging or damaged tissue.
Higher oxygen concentrations can benefit the body in all aspects which is why we frequently pair this therapy with our dermal fillers, skin rejuvenation and laser treatments to ease discomfort and promote accelerated healing time.
