What is Ozone (O3) therapy?

Is a treatment modality that uses ozone as its active ingredient. Ozone is a molecule composed of 3 oxygen atoms. The oxygen we breathe is made of 2 oxygen molecules.

Ozone is known for its therapeutic effects:

  • Rejuvenating
  • Anti-Aging
  • Invigorating
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Tissue repair
  • Analgesic
  • Wound healing
  • Immune boosting
  • Weight Loss

- Helps with blood sugar control Ozone can be used as a more effective and safer substitute of standard medications.

Ozone (O3) therapy serves as an alternative medical technique that increases the oxygen in the body along with the introduction of O3.

What is Ozone Therapy action mechanism?

Ozone gas comes in contact with biological fluids, and forms reactive oxygen species as well as lipid oxidation products. Both of these products react with white blood cells initiating the formation of proteins, cytokines, and red blood cells which increases the tissue oxygen supply, energy, regeneration and healing capabilities.

Ozone in Aesthetics Ozone therapy is increasingly being used in the field of aesthetics, to help improve the appearance of skin and reduce various signs of aging. The ozone gas helps to stimulate collagen production and elastin, which are both essential for healthy and youthful looking skin. It also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and age spots, as well as reduce inflammation and redness in the skin. Finally, ozone therapy can also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, dark circles around the eyes, and uneven skin tones. It can also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, as well as help to protect the skin from sun damage. Ultimately, ozone therapy is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of skin and reduce a variety of signs of aging Ozone therapy can also help to improve the elasticity of the skin, reduce puffiness, a as well as improve hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Ozone in Pain, Arthritis and Sport Injuries:

Ozone, helps repair musculoskeletal tissues, and reduces local pain which favors the mobility lost during the painful state and recovery of joint function.

O3 therapy is now been used in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders such as joint pain, tendon injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, lumbar facet joint pain, shoulder and hip bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, shoulder adhesive capsulitis, lumbar herniated discs, and temporomandibular joint disorder.

How can Ozone Therapy be administered?


By applying it to the skin through the use of an ozone solution or by exposing a portion of your body to ozone gas inside a safe enclosure. Often used for wound healing and skin rash.


There are several methods for insufflation (blowing ozone gas to a determined body cavity). Blowing ozone via special bag or syringe through the vagina, rectum, or sinuses guided by trained healthcare provider. Ozone should never be breath directly, at Promethium Medical we use auricular insufflation, a novel method that will applies a medically proven system barrier to filter the administered ozone gas.


Ozone gas can be dissolved in a sample of your blood and then returned into your body via an IV or intramuscular injection.


Ozone gas can be injected into a selected body area via intramuscular or subcutaneous injection. Ozone can be mixed with platelet rich plasma injection and other therapeutic injections when performed by a board-certified physician.

Orally: Ingestion of tiny quantities of ozone gas dissolved in water or oil.


Ozone Therapy in Weight Loss


Another property of ozone lies in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fatty acids. Ozone therapy increases the availability of ATP (the cell energy molecule), thereby increasing the energy level and providing better performance in the response of adipose tissue metabolization. Ozone promotes lipolysis in the adipose tissue. Lipolysis is the process where the body breaks down dietary fat or stored fat into absorbable form to be used as energy by the cells.
