What is Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy Therapy is the new, simple and proven technique that can dramatically improve the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite and localized small amount of fat by improving local tissue metabolism and perfusion. Treatments are rapid, comfortable and effective for a high percentage of patients.

How is Carboxytherapy
Therapy performed?

It is a non surgical method. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissue through a tiny 30G needle (0.3mm in diameter). From the injection point, the carbon dioxide diffuses easily into adjacent tissues.

How does the carbon
dioxide work?

Carboxytherapy Therapy works in two complimentary ways. Firstly, and quite simply carbon dioxide mechanically kills fat cells. Secondly, it also has a strong vasodilatory effect (causes dilation of blood vessels) on the capillaries in the area. Wider vessels mean bigger and stronger blood flow to the area, which means more oxygen. The increase in oxygen is important because it eliminates the built up fluid from between the cells. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue.

Which conditions can
be improved?

Stretch marks
Fat collection in small area
Skin laxity
After liposuction for skin tightening and even result

Is it painful?

Some patients can experience a light tingling sensation near the injection site. It disappears within a matter of seconds. As a result of the increased circulation, the area surrounding the injection site may feel warmer for 10 to 20 minutes.

After care

Avoid emerging in water for 4 hours after the treatment such as baths, swimming, or saunas.

How many sessions
are required?

Between 12 and 15 sessions are necessary to eliminate stretch marks and cellulite. Ideally they should be carried out every other day, although sometimes two or even one session per week will be enough. This will depend on the extent of your cellulite and stretch marks. Each session lasts between 5 to 10 minutes.

Isn't carbon dioxide toxic?

CO2 therapy is a safe therapy with no relevant side effects. Because of its lipolytic properties and positive effect on skin elasticity, CO2 therapy could play a useful role as a complement to surgical liposuction for the treatment of persistent skin irregularity.

Use along with liposuction

It is used for skin irregularities, skin tightening, and as a complementary treatment to liposuction (for residual fatty deposits).
