Carboxytherapy cures cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye bags. The therapy can be used on the afflicted neck, face, arms, buttocks, stomach, and legs.
It improves blood circulation to the treated location by infusing carbon dioxide, a naturally occurring gas, into the body. It developed several decades ago in French spas.
Carboxytherapy works on the assumption that by injecting CO2 into a specific location, the body will respond by supplying more oxygen to that area.
Supplying more oxygen to targeted locations helps clean, and eliminate built-up fluid and waste between cells, correct discoloration, and smooth curves, all of which help in aesthetic enhancement.
Before inserting the needle, the treatment area is washed, and topical numbing lotion may be administered to the injection area.
During therapy, a tiny needle is injected into the skin into the subcutaneous tissue. Carbon dioxide diffuses into surrounding tissues from the injection region. The increased CO2 fools the body into sending more oxygenated blood to the region, boosting neovascularization and enhancing circulation and the skin's overall look.
This improved circulation increases skin suppleness, while CO2 helps in the destruction of fat cells, which are usually eliminated by the body's lymphatic system.
Multiple sessions over several months are required to enjoy the effects of carboxy treatment. Maintenance treatments can be administered every few months.
