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.

What Is Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical method that uses a 30G mesotherapy needle to inject CO2 gas beneath the skin (subcutaneous or intradermic). Because CO2 is non-embolic, it is pretty safe when done correctly and with a doctor’s approval.

Carbon dioxide is a normal by-product of the body and is not hazardous in high concentrations unless a medical problem arises. In addition, Carboxytherapy has no recognized side effects.

Normal cellular respiration produces CO2 as a by-product of breaking down carbohydrates or fats with oxygen. The gas is reabsorbed in 5 minutes, and the treated area returns to normal.

Subcutaneous capillaries become dormant as we age. This, coupled with stresses and other factors, especially living in a large city such as Los Angeles, limits the ability of cells to regrow and function properly. The result is that the skin gradually loses its elasticity and collagen.  

The body obtains oxygen naturally through essential breathing.  The body will first use oxygen in the major organs before moving on to the skin. When the skin lacks oxygen, it is more susceptible to aging and skin problems.

Carboxytherapy introduces CO2 into your skin’s surface. Then the body interprets this as a lack of oxygen and reacts by increasing blood flow to the area. The oxygenated blood flow encourages the formation of new blood vessels and cell regeneration.

Increased oxygen concentration also improves the area’s water retention. This increased blood flow also stimulates collagen, which softens fine wrinkles and reduces dark circles under the eyes.

What Conditions Can Carboxytherapy Treat?

Carboxytherapy can be used to treat cellulite, dark circles, and stretch marks. The method improves:

  • Circulation
  • Skin elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Repairs collagen and burns fat

Erectile dysfunction, arthritis, Raynaud’s syndrome, and baldness caused by poor blood circulation have all been treated with carboxytherapy.

Carboxytherapy can be utilized on the face, eyes, neck, stomach, arms, legs, and buttocks, among other places.

What Are the Benefits of Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is quickly becoming known as the world’s most effective skin rejuvenation treatment. 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.

It is a safe and effective minimally invasive procedure. The Food and Drug Administration in the US has approved carboxytherapy. It also has no long-term side effects.

It’s a quick outpatient procedure lasting 15 to 30 minutes, and you can resume your everyday routines almost immediately.

How Many Sessions Should a Patient Receive Treatment?

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.

Number of Sessions Recommended for Cellulite

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.

Number of Sessions Recommended for Stretch Marks

For stretch marks, four to six sessions are required when considering Carboxytherapy.

Side Effects related to Treatment

There have been no side effects associated with Carboxytherapy.
