Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy is a treatment that uses carbon dioxide in controlled doses to treat a number of aesthetic conditions.

These type of procedures have evolved from initially treating medical problems to its application in aesthetic medicine as an effective treatment for stretch marks, cellulite, localized fat deposits, scars, hair loss, improvement of skin laxity, wrinkles and dark circle under the eyes.

Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas that the body produces as a by-product of respiration and cellular metabolism. As such, it is safe to use. Carbon dioxide has no toxicity even in elevated doses.

As a result of aging, we may have decreased blood flow and oxygen delivery to the tissues. When carbon dioxide is injected into the treated area, your body detects a lack of oxygen in that area and reacts by dilating your capillaries, thereby improving blood flow and oxygen delivery. This stimulates fat cell and scar tissue breakdown, while simultaneously increasing collagen production. The procedure uses a small needle to infuse the carbon dioxide gas under the skin. It usually requires a series of treatments for optimal results and there is no downtime.
