Carboxytherapy involves injecting carbon dioxide under the surface of the skin with a fine needle. The idea is that the introduction of carbon dioxide makes your body think that there is an oxygen deficiency in that area and responds by increasing blood flow to that part of the body, as well as widening blood vessels. This leads to an increase in oxygen which helps to restore cells, which improves the appearance of the skin. The procedure is painless, but topical numbing cream might be applied to the injection site.
Carboxytherapy only takes between 15 to 30 minutes, but most people will have several sessions to see optimal results. Is a non-surgical treatment used to treat and improve the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, hair restoration. This treatment is less invasive than other treatments used for cellulite reduction.
