If you are a woman, there’s a good chance you have cellulite, stretch marks, dark circles under your eyes, or all three! Whilst these are all perfectly normal, any of us hate them, and Carboxytherapy is a minimally invasive and reliable way to treat them.
Blood circulation is partially responsible for many of these problems. When you inhale oxygen, it is carried to the tissues by red blood cells, where carbon dioxide that has been released as waste is picked up and then exhaled by the lungs. Blood circulation can be increased by injecting carbon dioxide into an area, causing the red blood cells to rush over to it. This increase in circulation can help to repair skin elasticity and change the pigment of the skin, creating a healthy glow.
This versatile treatment can be used on the face, neck, arms, buttocks, stomach and legs, and it can also improve circulation, skin elasticity and wrinkles.
What happens during the treatment?
The treatment lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, during which, a tank of carbon dioxide is connected to a flow-regulator. The gas is emitted into a sterile tube into a needle, allowing it to be injected beneath the skin. This may feel slightly strange and you may experience some pressure, but it does not hurt. Treated areas can feel warm for 24 hours after the treatment.
How does Carboxytherapy work?
Stretch marks occur when the dermal collagen has been ruptured. The Carboxytherapy creates new collage, which thickens the skin and improves its appearance. When the carbon dioxide is injected into fat cells, they burst and are eliminated from the body, therefore reducing cellulite. The dark circles under your eyes are not just caused by the kids! They are created by poor circulation, which leads to vascular pooling. When the carbon dioxide is injected, the dark tinge is reduced and replaced with a healthier tone.
When will I see results?
You should see the full results of your treatment after 2 weeks, but a course of up to 6 treatments is usually recommended in order to get the best outcome. There is no downtime after the treatment, although you should avoid swimming or bathing for the first 24 hours.
This incredible treatment is a quick and easy way to treat the problems that we have previously struggled to defeat, making you confident and healthy using one of the most natural ingredients on Earth!
