With modern aesthetic medicine, we can help patients achieve rejuvenation and a renewed appearance without surgery or incisions. Carboxytherapy is a modern, innovative, multi-functional procedure that can reduce cellulite, stretch marks, and dark circles under the eyes, and achieve a fresh, bright complexion.

What is carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is a minimally-invasive treatment for cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles. Carboxytherapy involves running carbon dioxide gas under the skin with a fine needle to increase blood circulation to the area.

One of the reasons cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles appear is poor circulation. When carbon dioxide is injected into an area, red blood cells rush to that area, thus greatly incresing blood circulation in that area.

The increased blood circulation helps repair skin elasticity, achieves a healthy, glowing skin pigment, and improves the quality and thickness of the skin.

What can carboxytherapy treat?

Carboxytherapy can treat the following concerns:

  • cellulite
  • dark under-eye circles
  • stretch marks
  • poor circulation
  • skin elasticity
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • skin concerns that resolve with collagen and elastin repair
  • stubborn fatty deposits on the body

Carboxytherapy can be used in the following areas of the body:

  • face
  • eyelids
  • buttocks
  • legs
  • neck
  • stomach
  • arms

What happens during the procedure?

Your treatment process will vary based on which part of the body is being treated. Typically, a tank of carbon dioxide gas is connected to a flow regulator, and a sterile tubing with a filter at the end that removes any impurities.

We will monitor this device to regulate how much gas flows from the tank through a fine needle at the end of the filter. The needle is inserted under the skin, and the gas flows beneath the skin through the needle. The procedure is short, lasting only 15-30 minutes.

While the procedure is painless, some patients feel a strange sensation for a brief period of time after their procedure. Typically, patients need 7 to 10 sessions, but some concerns, such as cellulite, may require up to 25 sessions.

Is there a recovery period after carboxytherapy?

Once your treatment is complete, you can return to your day and continue with your typical activities and routine. However, do not swim or take a bath for 24 hours after a carboxytherapy treatment for cellulite or fat reduction.

Who is a candidate for carboxytherapy?

Men or women who would like to treat dark under-eye circle, stretch marks, cellulite, or skin concerns are typically candidates for carboxytherapy treatments. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Have no serious medical concerns
  • Do not have a skin disease
  • Have no active infections in the treatment area

Carboxytherapy provides a number of benefits for patients, including the following:

  • Short, simple treatment
  • Painless
  • Minimally invasive
  • Creates new collagen
  • Thickens the skin and improves its appearance
  • Causes fat cells to be destroyed
  • Boosts the skin's metabolism, increasing the natural production of oxygen
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Achieves dramatically brighter, revitalized skin
  • Reduces bruising and swelling
  • Can be used to treat acne
  • Reduces dark circles under the eyes
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Reduces unwanted facial fat to achieve a more contoured appearance
  • Can be used on the face and number of areas of the body

How long will the results last?

Results after carboxytherapy treatments lasy for five or six months, particularly if the patient follows a healthy, active lifestyle. Repeat treatments can be performed to maintain and enhance results.

After your initial results, we recommend that you have two treatments a year to continue to maintain your results. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, the effects from carboxytherapy may last for years.
