As Featured In
Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) for therapeutic purposes. This is an FDA-approved procedure that is quick, comfortable, and highly effective and has relatively no downtime. The procedure was widely used to treat ischemic vascular diseases because of the vasodilation properties of CO2.

Carboxytherapy can be used to treat the eyelids, face, neck, arms, stomach, buttocks, and legs. It can also be used to treat several other conditions, including acne scars and skin laxity, skin ulcers, erection problems due to vascular disorders, wrinkles, stretch marks, and cellulite.
In addition to increasing oxygenated blood-flow to the region injected, carboxytherapy also increases collagen formation in the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
The number of sessions a patient should receive Carboxytherapy is dependent upon the condition it is treating. It is considered a non-surgical alternative treatment that handles many of the body-contouring benefits similar to liposuction.
For cellulite, six to 10 sessions are usually necessary. Of course, this number is dependent on how well the patient’s body reacts or sees benefits from the procedure.
For stretch marks, four to six sessions are required when considering Carboxytherapy.
There have been no side effects associated with Carboxytherapy.
