CarboxytherapyWhat is carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is used to treat cellulite, dark under-eye circles, and stretch marks. People who undergo the procedure find an improvement in:
fine lines and wrinkles
It also aids with collagen repair and the destruction of fatty deposits.
Additionally, it can help reduce under-eye circles by increasing blood flow to the eyelid. Some physicians have also used the therapy to treat erectile dysfunction, acute arthritis, Raynaud’s syndrome, and alopecia caused by poor blood circulation.
For fat and cellulite reduction, the procedure is often preferred over more invasive and high-risk methods, such as liposuction.
Carboxytherapy can be used on the face, eyelids, neck, stomach, arms, legs, and buttocks.
How is carboxytherapy performed?
The specifics of the procedure will vary based on the part of the body being treated. The mechanics of the procedure, however, are mostly the same.
A tank of carbon dioxide gas is connected to a flow-regulator with plastic tubing. The physician will carefully regulate how much gas flows from the tank. The gas is emitted through the flow-regulator and into sterile tubing that has a filter at the end. The filter picks up any impurities before they reach the body. The gas then runs through a very small needle on the opposite side of the filter. The physician injects the gas beneath the skin through the needle.
The procedure is almost entirely painless. Some physicians rub numbing cream on the injection site before inserting the needle. Despite the lack of pain, some people report feeling a strange sensation briefly afterward.
Carboxytherapy is an outpatient procedure, and it usually only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
