Carboxytherapy

Combating the root causes of cellulite

Carboxytherapy offers :

  • Reduction of cellulite
  • Tissue oxygenation
  • Fluid retention elimination
  • Local fat reduction
  • Improvement of stretch marks appearance

Carboxytherapy is so natural therapy - just like breathing. Carboxytherapy aims at enhancing oxygen supply - and thus nutrition and life - to the tissues, resulting in more youthful, firmer and brighter skin, without cellulite.

Carboxytherapy targets the root of the problem

Carboxytherapy is one of the most effective treatments to combat cellulite and reduce local fat that enhances the “orange peel” appearance of the skin in many cases. And it is effective just because it targets the root of the problem, i.e. poor blood circulation, the stagnation of fluids/toxins in the tissues, local fat accumulation and collagen fibres damage.
The treatment is applied using carboxy (CO2) infusions in the areas with cellulite (mainly the hips and thighs, but also the arms, stomach and abdomen). The body then starts immediately to work intensely so as to send more oxygen to the area and eliminate it. The oxygen is transferred through blood supply, and this intensive oxygenation is what actually leads to the desired results..

Carboxytherapy offers oxygen to the skin

Both the extra oxygen and the nutrients that reach the skin stimulate collagen production, which improves skin support and texture, thus minimising the appearance of cellulite. At the same time carboxy breaks down adipocytes (fat cells), and thanks to its powerful vasodilatory effect it enhances blood flow in the area and promotes fat metabolism, which is often accumulated in the areas with cellulite. In addition, oxygen contributes in the elimination of fluid retention from the tissues, thus helping the skin look smoother and firmer, without the ugly bumps and lumps that characterise the appearance of cellulite.

A multi-tool at the disposal of cosmetic dermatology

This is actually a perfectly natural procedure, as – similarly to breathing – the organism uses oxygen to eliminate carboxy. Better perfusion and oxygenation is the key in improving overall skin appearance, because apart from cellulite and local fat, Carboxytherapy is also beneficial against stretch marks, while it also offers amazing tightening of the skin. So it is literally a multi-tool at the disposal of cosmetic dermatology!

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 cellulite may be suggested, such as the application of acoustic waves with the X-Wave, subcision of the fibroses of cellulite with the CelluClip treatment, mesothery CelluSculpting, LPG Endermologie® or VASERsmooth®.
