    As an avid sports fan I'm always reading about professional athletes using hyperbaric oxygen therapy to heal from various injuries. Of course, this is an off-label treatment, which is why it sparked my interest as possibly having a beneficial impact on rosacea. If anyone has tried hbot I'd be very interested to learn about their experiences. A quick google search turned up the following (non-scientific) website:

    “When a patient is in the chamber, the increased pressure causes the blood plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb much larger quantities of oxygen, greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and all fluids of the body. This becomes a “goldmine” of oxygen, which can then be utilized by the body for vital functions.

    This increase in oxygen allows for increased circulation to areas in spite of swelling or inflammation. At the same time, the increased pressure decreases the swelling and inflammation.

    This additional oxygen helps in the healing process and enhances the white blood cells’ ability to fight infection. It can promote the development of new capillaries, the tiny blood vessels that connect arteries to veins. It also helps the body build new connective tissue. HBOT helps impaired organs to function better.
    By providing the cells with an abundance of oxygen, the cells react by becoming more enlivened. The cells can now function more efficiently and carry out their processes in an accelerated manner. Cellular functioning -> cellular repair -> cellular healing!

    So your immune system can be “jump-started” and fueled into greater action.

    Healthier cells equals healthier tissues, organs, and bodily functioning.”

    Of concern of course is the following sentence contained in the above quote:

    “It can promote the development of new capillaries, the tiny blood vessels that connect arteries to veins.”

      My sister was having this done today. Her friend has a spa salon and has this oxygen chamber. She told my sister it would help her surgery wounds to heal faster. So my sister asked me if maybe this would help me with my rosacea and inflamation? Her friend would give me a discount.

      Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

        HBOT helps injured tissue absorb many times the amount of oxygen normally available. A 60-90 minute HBOT treatment allows oxygen to penetrate deeply into blood, plasma, and cerebral fluids, increasing healing and circulation where it’s needed most.
