Geneo, also known as OxyGeneo is an advanced facial with four core treatment aspects, skin tightening, exfoliation, oxygenation and product infusion.
The Geneo facial starts with optional TriPollar radio frequency facial to tighten the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen.
This is then followed by EXFOLIATION, OXYGENATION & INFUSION. The unique Geneo oxy pod is applied to the skin using a specialist handpiece to bring about these 3 effects. When the oxy pod comes into contact with treatment gel on the skin a chemical reaction occurs which creates co2 microbubbles on the skins surface. The Geneo handpiece infuses these microbubbles into the epidermis which induces a natural response known as the BOHR effect, causing oxygen rich blood to rush to the area and oxygenate the skin cells. These oxygen rich skin cells can better utilise the infused active ingredients from the oxy pod.
The oxygenating facial is completed with light massage to continue product infusion and encourage lymphatic drainage. Skin is left tighter, brighter and plumped from the very first treatment.
The Geneo facial is suitable for all skin types and is customisable with 6 different product oxy pods, Balance, Revive, Detox, Illuminate, Hydrate and Glam, each targeting different skin concerns.

Geneo Radio Frequency Facial Before & After
The Geneo facial has a number of benefits for all skin types but when used with TriPollar Radio Frequency gives exceptional anti ageing results. The radio frequency facial at the beginning of the treatment heats the skin, tightening it and reawakening the fibroblast cells to encourage the renewal of collagen in the weeks following treatment. The before and after results shown below demonstrate the results that can be achieved when a course of Geneo Radio Frequency Facials are taken weekly.
Deep signs of ageing are visibly reduced on the cheeks and forehead. The skin is tighter and brighter with an overall lifted appearance.
Fine lines & wrinkles are reduced. Jowls are smoothed and lifted. There is a visible eye lift effect and an overall tighter and radiant appearance to the skin.
With a particular focus on the eye area wrinkles have been reduced and the overall appearance of the skin is plumper and lifted.

Geneo Oxygen Facial FAQs
What does Geneo do?
Geneo uses a 4 in 1 treatment technology to tighten, exfoliate, infuse and oxygenate the skin.
The skin tightening element of the facial is optional but gives enhanced anti ageing results due to its ability to re-awaken fibroblast cells and stimulate collagen production.
The Geneo technology creates co2 microbubbles that push down into the skin and stimulate a natural process known as the BOHR effect which sends natural oxygen rich blood to the skins surface, oxygenating it from within.
Does a Geneo facial have any downtime?
No, there is no downtime after a Geneo facial. You may experience a slight redness following treatment but this will quickly subside to leave you only with the Geneo glow. We do advise that you use a hypoallergenic SPF following treatment. We stock Obagi Sun Shield in the clinic should you want to purchase a high quality facial SPF for daily use.
Is Geneo suitable for all skin types?
Yes, Geneo is suitable for all skin types. A therapist will assess your skin and choose a Geneo Oxy pod that best suits your skin type and skin concerns.
How long is a Geneo facial?
We have a number of Geneo facial treatment options ranging from 30 minutes to 75 minutes.
How often do you need a Geneo facial?
We recommend an initial course of 6 Geneo facials taken weekly and then maintained monthly to achieve maximum results.
At Aqua-Tox if you purchase a course of 6 Geneo facials we will give you one additional facial for free which can be used as your maintenance facial.
What are the benefits of Geneo?

- Immediate skin brightening, plumping & hydrating results
- Advanced cleansing and exfoliation to remove the dead layer of skin and encourage cell renewal
- Infusion of active ingredients suited to your skin type and skin concerns from a choice of 6 Geneo Oxy Pods.
- Enhances skin circulation and lymphatic drainage via heat and massage
- Skin tightening and stimulation of collagen production when treatment includes TriPollar Radio Frequency.
- Aids in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
How much does OxyGeneo cost?
We have a number of OxyGeneo Facial treatment options. All of which can be viewed in our Geneo facial price list.
Is OxyGeneo painful?
No an OxyGeneo facial should not be painful. It is a warming and relaxing facial treatment. Some people may find the warmth of the TriPollar Radio Frequency or the exfoliation slightly sensitive however this can be adjusted. The therapist will ask for your feedback throughout the treatment and can reduce the heat or exfoliation pressure if needed.
Which is better HydraFacial or Geneo Oxygen Facial?
HydraFacial uses multiple treatment stages to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin.
Geneo oxygen facials use multiple treatment stages to cleanse, exfoliate, infuse and tighten the skin.
The main differences between the two are:
- Geneo involves no extraction from the skin wheras HydraFacial does
- Geneo has the option of radio frequency to aid in skin tightening and to encourage longer term production of new collagen. HydraFacial does not utilise any skin tightening technology.
- Customisable product infusion is a feature if both HydraFacial and Geneo Oxygen facials. Geneo uses a natural chemical reaction to bring oxygen to the skins surface and enhance product infusion.
There are benefits to each facial however we believe the Geneo Oxygen Facial offers a greater all round solution due to the option for an enhanced radio frequency facial to tighten the skin.
