IMPROVES SKIN ELASTICITY AND REDUCES CELLULITE
Carboxytherapy is carbon dioxide therapy. The treatment, depending on the effect we want to achieve, consists in intradermal or subcutaneous, precise application of controlled doses of medical carbon dioxide by injection.
Carboxytherapy is widely used, and numerous studies have confirmed its effectiveness in many areas. This is an excellent method for face and body therapy.
Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes
Locally accumulated fatty tissue (e.g. chin, abdomen, breeches)
Flabby skin (e.g. arms, face, neck, cleavage)
DURING THE TREATMENT
The mechanical effect of the treatment is the breakdown of fatty deposits. The carbon dioxide administered during the procedure turns into carbonic acid, which damages the membranes of fat cells. Then, the phenomenon of lipolysis occurs, i.e. the breakdown of fat. Carboxytherapy also increases lymphatic drainage, which allows you to effectively eliminate bags under the eyes and supports the fight against cellulite.
• Active bacterial, viral (herpes), fungal and parasitic diseases,
• Skin inflammation,
• Pregnancy and breastfeeding,
• Heart, lung, liver and kidney failure,
• Having had a stroke and myocardial infarction,
• Condition after organ transplant or removal,
• Blood diseases (e.g. anemia, haemophilia),
• Peripheral vascular diseases (e.g. atherosclerosis, thrombophlebitis)
• Neoplastic diseases and a period of 5 years from their complete recovery,
• Rheumatoid arthritis,
• Unstable diabetes and hypertension,
• Taking certain medications (e.g. blood thinners),
• Tendency to develop keloids,
• Increased body temperature.
Local contraindications for carboxytherapy are:
• Soft tissue fillers, botulinum toxin and threads are a contraindication in the treatment area,
• Endiometrosis and menstruation are a contraindication to procedures in the abdominal area,
Varicose veins are a contraindication to the procedure in the area of the lower limbs.
Carbon dioxide, the invisible, odourless gas that is part of the air we breathe, is injected just under the surface of the skin using a fine needle. According to many studies, it diffuses into the surrounding tissues and causes blood vessels to dilate.
Wider vessels mean a stronger blood supply, which brings a rush of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area.
Evidence shows the carbon dioxide kills fat cells by causing them to distend, the extra oxygen eliminates fluid build-up between cells, and the skin is stimulated to produce more collagen.
The result, say practitioners, is fewer fat cells and firmer, younger skin. Medical studies have long shown carbon dioxide stimulates circulation. It has been used in France since the Thirties to treat patients suffering from poor circulation, blocked arteries and heart problems. More recently, research by the University of Siena in Italy showed Carboxy therapy is effective at smoothing skin and reducing fat.
