What are the benefits of Carboxy Therapy?
Carboxytherapy is rapidly becoming known globally as the leading skin rejuvenation treatment. It is a safe, minimally invasive clinically proven method to rejuvenate, restore, and recondition the skin and treat wrinkles, laxity, cellulite and stretch marks. Therapy involves injecting tiny amounts of Carbon dioxide (CO2) beneath the skin to break down fatty deposits and stimulate collagen production.
Is it safe?
Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of the body and is not toxic even in elevated doses unless a pre-existing medical condition exists
after a treatment the gas is totally reabsorbed within 5 minutes and the area treated returns to normal. There are no known risks or unwanted effects with Carboxy Therapy, and millions of people have been treated with it worldwide without reported adverse effects
What can I expect?
During the treatment the sensation can be likened to a dull throb or pressure .This mild discomfort lasts 2 to 4 minutes. CO2 is 20 times more soluble than oxygen and it is easily and quickly diffused from the injection site to the surrounding tissue. After a treatment the gas is totally reabsorbed within 5 minutes and the treated area will raise, turn slightly red as oxygen perfused into the area which undergoes an inflammatory response which stimulates collagen production. The area should not be immersed in water for about 4 hours post-treatment. Patients can return to work immediately after treatment.
