Carboxytherapy

Combating skin relaxation with extra doses of oxygen

Carboxytherapy offers

  • Combats skin relaxation
  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Restores skin brightness
  • Combats cellulite and local fat
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks

Carboxytherapy is an absolutely natural therapy that is constantly gaining ground in cosmetic dermatology just because it only has benefits for the skin. Carboxytherapy takes advantage of the body’s natural mechanism so as to offer valuable oxygen and thus food to skin tissues that lose their tone and become more relaxed as time goes by. The result of this enhanced oxygenation is firmer and tighter skin, with no signs of relaxation to reveal its age..

Carboxytherapy is actually "breath of life" for the skin

Carboxytherapy takes advantage of a natural process of the body: the use of oxygen to eliminate carbon dioxide. Treatment is applied through the administration of low doses of carboxy (CO2) in areas showing skin relaxation, aiming at the enhancement of blood circulation at that area, as blood is the carrier of oxygen. Enhanced perfusion and oxygenisation leads to the angiogenesis of new blood cells and stimulates collagen production, thus improving the appearance of the skin.
Carboxytherapy can be safely applied on the neck, arms, belly and stomach, hips and legs. Through the reconstruction of the collagen matrix, the skin looks tighter and firmer.

A super weapon in the quiver of cosmetic dermatology

Carboxytherapy has been proven to be a super weapon in the quiver of cosmetic dermatology, as the enhanced oxygenation of the tissues is beneficial to the overall condition of the skin. Apart from skin relaxation, the treatment combats cellulite, too - thus enhancing the decongestion of tissues from toxins and better metabolism of local fat, while significantly improving stretch marks. Therefore the skin regains its elasticity, its brightness and - most importantly - its youthfulness!

FAQs


How does Carboxytherapy work?
The treatment is based on the infusion of low doses of carbon dioxide (CO2) in body areas showing skin relaxation and wrinkling. Carboxytherapy forces the organism to respond immediately and send more oxygen locally so that to eliminate CO2, which is exactly what happens with the breathing mechanism. The aim is to enhance blood circulation locally, because blood is the carrier of oxygen. Better perfusion and oxygenation lead to the reconstruction of collagen and angiogenesis of new blood cells in the areas of application, resulting in both tissue rejuvenation and lifting, and improved appearance of the skin.
In which other cases is Carboxytherapy used?
This treatment is being used for many years in the field of dermatology, as it offers amazing results in combating cellulite, local fat, stretch marks and dark circles. In addition, it is used for the treatment of hair loss. Carbon dioxide subcutaneous injections cause vasodilation (i.e. the opening of the microscopic blood vessels), thus allowing enhanced nutrition of the scalp, resulting in the interruption of hair loss and the promotion of hair growth.
Are there any side effects?
Mild oedema or bruising may appear on the infusion areas, both of which are normal and disappear within 48 hours. Apart from this there is no known risk related to carboxytherapy. This is evident if you just think that carbon dioxide injections are being used for many years to facilitate endoscopic interventions in the abdominal area, while they may be directly infused in the blood circulation by invasive cardiologists as part of specific diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
How many sessions are required?
In general, four to twelve sessions are required, depending on the nature and extent of the problem, with 1-2 sessions per week. Then a number of repeat sessions are advisable every six months to maintain the results.
How long does each session last?
An average session lasts from 15 to 30 minutes.
When will I see results?;
The results are visible from the 2nd-3rd treatment and last for at least six months, after which 1-2 repeat sessions to maintain the result are advisable.
Does the treatment hurt?
No. You may only feel a mild sense of pressure in the treatment area, which is perfectly tolerable.
Can Carboxytherapy be combined with other treatments?
Of course. For better results, and depending on each case, the combination of Carboxytherapy with other treatments against skin relaxation may be suggested, such as the application of radiofrequencies-ultrasound with the Exilis Elite™, as well as skin threads.

I had 8 Carboxytherapy sessions in the abdomen area, where my skin was really relaxed after three pregnancies, and the improvement was amazing!
I’d definitely recommend it!
