What is Carboxy therapy?
Carboxy therapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Carbon Dioxide is the gas that gives carbonated beverages their “fizz.” Carbon dioxide is naturally present in our bodies at all times and it is essential to the life processes of both animals and plants. This carbon dioxide can actually be very useful. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars are believed to caused, at least in part, due to poor blood-flow to the region. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are “tricking” the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2 that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation.
What are some clinical uses for Carboxy therapy?
Carboxy therapy is used for the treatment of dark under-eye circles, stretch-marks, cellulite reduction, and non-surgical fat sculpting on the face and the body.
What areas of the body can be treated with Carboxy therapy?
CarboxyTherapy can be used to treat the eyelids, face, neck, arms, stomach.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends upon the severity of the problem being treated. Usually, six to twelve treatments spaced one week apart yields an excellent result.
