Skin problems are often the first visible signs of diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Type 2 diabetes can make existing skin problems more severe, and also cause new ones. Take control of your diabetes and use our microbubble therapy bathtubs. Listed below are five ways our patented microbubble technology has improved those who struggle with diabetes.
Hardened Thickening Skin
When thick skin develops on the fingers, toes, or both, the medical name for this condition is digital sclerosis. Not only does this cause discomfort, but it could also mean needing a physical therapist. Without treatment, the hardening of the skin makes it difficult to bend and straighten the joints. In order to prevent this, we recommend using microbubble therapy to gently and deeply penetrate the skin with bubbles 50 to 100 times smaller than regular baths. By allowing the microbubbles to soften the skin, it is easier for the skin to absorb moisturizer, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft to the touch.
A simple first line of defense is to prevent dry skin because skin that’s too dehydrated can crack, itch and get infected. Microbubble therapy is essential for those who wish to avoid bacterial and fungal infections caused by dry skin. It produces microscopic bubbles that can gently exfoliate the body in order to lift any impurities. The size of the bubbles allows for easy access to every pore and essentially pushes any impurities out.
Another common issue for those who have diabetes is diabetic neuropathy, which causes decreased sensation. This makes the skin more prone to wounds that may not be felt and therefore come to your attention at a later stage.
Outbreak of small reddish-yellow bumps
When these small reddish-yellow bumps appear, they often cause people to feel very tender and itchy. Called eruptive xanthomatosis, these bumps can spread throughout the entire body and flare up at unpredictable times. A common concern for those who have diabetic skin conditions is the overreliance on different medications. As an alternative, microbubble therapy can moisturize and cleanse without irritating the skin.
Basic skin care can contribute toward helping you prevent problems later on, so it is our goal to minimize the types of skin problems that can arise. If you are looking for an all-encompassing approach to managing your diabetes, we recommend that you try microbubble therapy.
It’s been said before, it all starts with bubbles. Oxygen-rich microbubbles to be precise. These are tiny moisture-rich bubbles – 50 to 100 times smaller than regular air bubbles – They are the reason for the amazing benefits realized in microbubble therapy. This patented process creates literally billions of these miniature wonders that work to enhance and improve your skin’s health and vitality. Together, the microbubbles form a cloud of oxygen in your bath and give you a delightful, effervescent sensation.
The microbubbles individually penetrate gently into your pores for deeper cleansing, while also leaving behind moisture that plumps your skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. When the microbubbles collapse in the water, they release heat energy, which helps maintain a consistently warm bathing experience without the need to add more hot water. And possibly most importantly, these micro miracles, as they implode, release negative ions – known to improve serotonin levels and fight free radicals.
How Naturally Cleansing and Deep Penetrating Moisture Can Treat Skin Diseases Bathing With Skin Disease
Microbubble Therapy is like an exfoliation for your entire body, including your face and scalp. It really is like nothing you’ve experienced before. The billions of oxygen-rich microbubbles reach where mere water and soap can’t. They are so small (less than a millimeter) that they can penetrate gently into your pores. And they are negatively charged. This means that any dirt or impurities in the pores will naturally be attracted to the bubble and lifted away.
But it’s not just about what the bubbles take away. Microbubble therapy is about giving back to your body on a level that hasn’t been possible until now. Those tiny microbubbles, filled with oxygen, work together for a comfortable, clean exfoliation on a micro level. Imagine billions of them bumping into each other, effervescing under the water, gently brushing against your skin. Each one leaves behind a bit of nature’s life-giving and healing element – oxygen. This process makes your skin feel luxuriously silky and gives it a smooth appearance, diminishing any fine lines or wrinkles. Microbubble Therapy helps you look younger and be healthier!
The Healing Benefits of Oxygen
An oxygen-rich bath is helpful for your health. Every cell in your body needs oxygen to live and the largest organ you have is your skin. It also happens to be your first line of defense against many pathogens and atmospheric chemicals. The skin uses oxygen to kill bacteria, stimulate the immune system, promote healing, and supply energy to skin cells. By immersing the body in water with elevated levels of dissolved “wet oxygen”, effective amounts of oxygen enter the pores and hair follicles, deep enough to reach the sebaceous glands. Oxygen improves the cell’s metabolic health to support continuous cell regeneration in the basal layer.
Our Microbubble Therapy system supersaturates the water with billions of tiny, oxygen-rich microbubbles, increasing oxygen levels up to 70% higher than tap water. Because they are so small, the microbubbles remain suspended in the water, blanketing your body in a luxurious cloud of oxygen. This increased oxygen level energizes cells, stimulates the immune system, kills bacteria, promotes healing, and reduces scar tissue. Bathing With Skin Disease
Continual, consistent warmth
Because of their tiny size, Microbubble Therapy bubbles tend to remain suspended below the water’s surface. As suspended bubbles collapse, heat energy is released into the water. This allows the water temperature to stay warm and even rise a degree or two during your 20 minute bath cycle.
The benefits of this process are twofold.
First, you can enjoy a consistently warm bath without having to add more warm water. This small luxury of time and relaxation can add so much to your restful and relaxing bathing experience.
Second, when bathwater temperatures stay consistent, it allows skin temperature to rise evenly. This even rise in body temperature increases cardiovascular activity causing an improved “Sauna Effect”. This means an increased number of open pores that allow moisture to enter and an accelerated release of toxins. It also naturally stimulates the cardiovascular system leading to improved muscle recovery and rejuvenation.
After exiting the bath, the body’s temperature returned to normal more quickly because there were no “cool spots” in your body temperature as you would experience in other types of jetted bath therapies. This means that pores close quickly, trapping moisture and oxygen.
Negative ions can be positive.
In your Microbubble Therapy bath, at the water’s surface, wisps of what looks like steam appear. This is not steam or smoke. This is the infusion of negatively charged ions wafting into the air surrounding your bath at therapeutic levels.
We realize talking about ions sounds like science fiction, but in reality, they are a key component of what makes Microbubble Therapy so incredible. These are the same small particles that are found in high concentrations around waterfalls, mountain streams and beaches – Nature’s Anti-Depressants. They are known to improve serotonin levels in the brain, contributing to feelings of well-being. They help relax the mind and body, promote deep sleep, and enhance recovery from physical exhaustion. They also fight free radicals – those evil, positively charged ions that are thought to cause cancer and aging skin damage.
Note: Negative ion levels are considered therapeutic between 50,000 and 100,000 ions/cc. An independent study indicates that Microbubble Therapy Technology generates and releases negative ions at levels over 80,000 ions/cc.
How To Bathe A Baby Who Has Eczema
Our focus when dealing with newborns and babies with skin diseases is that everything is aforementioned. We have given a lot of thought to the features included in our microbubble therapy bathtubs.
One of the main issues we want to tackle is moisturizing the skin without overly using topical skin creams. Ideally, we aim to make the use of topical skin creams obsolete, where the main source of moisture for your skin can be derived from the bath. We understand that it is concerning to see that your baby’s skin is dry and cracked. With the rise in treatments for these skin rashes, it’s our goal to consolidate everything into one single bath. Bathing With Skin Disease
Why is bathing so effective?
When your skin is dry, it’s not because it doesn’t contain enough oil. It’s because your skin isn’t doing a very good job of retaining its moisture (water). Wind, low humidity, cold temperatures, harsh soaps and too much washing without the use of a moisturizer can lead to dry skin. This can irritate your eczema and even make it more severe.
People with eczema, especially atopic dermatitis, tend to have very dry skin in general. This is because the disease causes defects in the skin barrier. The skin barrier is the upper most layer of skin that protects irritants, bacteria/viruses, and allergens from getting into our bodies and moisture from getting out. Genes, skin trauma such as scratching or rubbing, and inflammation can all contribute to this defective or “leaky” skin barrier in people with eczema.
The most effective way to treat dry skin is to give it the moisture it needs. Proper bathing and moisturizing are imperative for this reason — especially if you have eczema. The most effective way to replace moisture in the skin is to soak in a bath or take a shower and then moisturize immediately afterwards.
Soak and seal.
The “Soak and Seal” method of treating eczema is recommended by many providers to combat dry skin and reduce flare-ups. To get the full therapeutic benefit, soak and seal often and follow these steps in order.
Instructions to Soak and Seal:
- Take a bath using lukewarm (not hot) water for five to 10 minutes. Use a gentle cleanser (no soap) and avoid scrubbing the affected skin.
- After bathing, pat the skin lightly with a towel leaving it slightly damp.
- Apply prescription topical medication to the affected areas of the skin as directed.
- Within three minutes, liberally apply a moisturizer all over the body. It’s imperative to apply a moisturizer within three minutes or the skin may become even drier.
- Wait a few minutes to let the moisturizer absorb into the skin before dressing or applying wet wraps.
- Tips for bathing and moisturizing with Eczema
- Some things to remember when bathing:
- Take at least one bath or shower a day
- Bathe or shower in lukewarm (not hot) water for 10 to 15 minutes
- Avoid scrubbing your skin with a washcloth or loofah
- Use a gentle cleanser (not soap).
- During severe flares, limit the use of cleansers to further avoid irritation
- Some things to remember when moisturizing: Bathing With Skin Disease
- Use a high-oil content moisturizer twice a day to improve hydration and protect the skin barrier
- Moisturize your hands every time you wash them or they come into contact with water
- Schedule your bathing and moisturizing routine at night, just before bed. This can help your skin better retain its moisture
If you have eczema on your hands, soak your hands in water, then follow with an application of your prescription medication (if you use one) and a moisturizer. Wear cotton gloves over your hands while you sleep to help seal in the moisturizer Bathing With Skin Disease
