Carboxytherapy is a treatment that delivers carbon dioxide gas just beneath your skin. It was first introduced in France in the 1940s but is now used by practitioners around the world.
One of the reasons carboxytherapy is such a great treatment option is the fact that carbon dioxide has no toxicity, even at high doses. In fact, your body produces carbon dioxide naturally, so it is a substance that is easily recognized when introduced through treatment injections.
Administering carbon dioxide into the skin can improve a wide range of conditions. Some of the applications of carboxytherapy include:
Your practitioner uses different techniques depending on the area of your body being treated and the desired effects. For example, it takes far less carbon dioxide to treat under-eye circles than to break apart cellulite.
One of the ways carboxytherapy works is by stimulating renewed circulation in the treatment area. Your body perceives carboxytherapy as a lack of oxygen and responds by creating new blood vessels or improving blood flow to the affected area. Treatments also prompt new collagen production, which serves to smooth and tighten your skin.
When used to break down cellulite and reduce fatty deposits, carboxytherapy works by introducing a greater volume of carbon dioxide into your body. This damages fat cells and breaks apart the connective tissues that cause cellulite.
A special numbing cream is applied prior to your carboxytherapy sessions. You may notice a degree of pressure, itching, tingling, or warmth in the treatment area, but there is no significant discomfort.
The needle used to administer the carbon dioxide is very thin, and the practitioners who perform this treatment are highly skilled in placing the treatment needle in the proper position. Your practitioner controls the flow of carbon dioxide to customize your treatment.
