How does carboxytherapy work for cellulite?

Dr. Youssef recommends carboxytherapy as the number one form of treatment to help remove cellulite. Carboxytherapy treatment is an alternative to laser liposuction for people who are not willing to undergo surgical solutions for cellulite removal.

Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of CO2 (carbon dioxide gas) that’s used for therapeutic purposes. When the CO2 reaches the fatty deposits, it becomes carbonic acid and dissolves the fat cells, releasing the fat. Your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes it away, thus reducing the fat deposits pushing upward past the septa band connections.

This treatment is an FDA-approved procedure that’s highly effective, quick, comfortable (no extreme pain whatsoever), and requires relatively no downtime.
