Effective carbon dioxide therapy
Carboxytherapy is a minimally invasive procedure involving an intradermal or subcutaneous injection of medical carbon dioxide using a thin needle. It is precisely measured and causes blood vessels to dilate when it spreads in the tissues. The flow of blood carrying nutrients is also increased, which allows for improved microcirculation, cell renewal and strong oxygenation of the skin. The body reacts with controlled inflammation to the application of medical CO2, which stimulates collagen production. It accelerates lymph circulation, which eliminates swellings and rejuvenates the skin. Carboxytherapy is not painful, but you may feel slight expansion and tingling during the procedure.
What are the indications for carboxytherapy?
Carbon dioxide therapy is considered to be versatile and is used in numerous instances. The main indications for carboxytherapy include:
- skin that is saggy, lacking firmness and density on the face and body
- deep wrinkles
- bags and shadows under the eyes
- double chin
- stretch marks
- weakened hair follicles and excessive hair loss.
Carboxytherapy can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or to complement other cosmetological and medical therapies. For satisfactory results please consult your specialist cosmetologist.
How often should I have carboxytherapy?
Depending on your desired outcome, carboxytherapy is usually performed in a series of 5 – 10 treatments, also taking into account individual predispositions. Treatments are carried out at 4- to 7-day intervals for cellulite and fat reduction, or every 14 to 21 days for skin revitalisation.
