We have performed Carboxytherapy treatments for 10 years. It stimulates collagen and can rejuvenate the eyes, face and body. We love combining Carboxytherapy with Microneedling and other procedures.
Carboxytherapy is a simple technique in which carbon dioxide gas is infused into the skin and can improve various conditions like localized fat, cellulite, stretch marks, spider veins and hair loss. Carboxytherapy can be used on the body or on the face. Treatment is nonsurgical and comfortable for most patients. This procedure is considered a cosmetic treatment and does not treat medical conditions. We recommend combining carboxytherapy with other procedures.
How is Carboxytherapy performed?
A very small gauge needle is used to inject the skin. From the injection point, the carbon dioxide diffuses to adjacent tissues.
How does Carboxytherapy work?
Carboxytherapy works in two complimentary ways. First, carbon dioxide mechanically kills fat cells. Secondly, it causes improved blood flow to tissues. Vessels are dilated and more oxygen is delivered to tissues. The increase in oxygen is important because it eliminates built up fluid from between the cells. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue. Carboxytherapy also can be used to stimulate collagen production if the needle is placed superficially in the skin. It can improve fine lines, tighten the skin and improve pigment disorders and rosacea. It can be combined with injection cocktails to improve skin tightness and hair loss.
Is Carboxytherapy painful?
Some patients can experience a light tingling sensation within the injected site. It disappears within a matter of seconds. As a result of increased circulation, the area treated can be warmer for 10 to 20 minutes. If the treatment is found to be painful, numbing cream can be applied for 15 to 30 minutes before treatment to increase comfort.
Isn’t carbon dioxide toxic?
No. Carbon dioxide is naturally produced by the cells in our bodies every day of our lives as a by-product of metabolism. It is transported in the blood and exhaled through the lungs. The carbon dioxide infused in the problem area is minimal enough not to cause any adverse reactions.
