To treat dark under-eye circles, stretch marks, and cellulite, carboxytherapy is ideal. Skin elasticity, wrinkles, fine lines, and circulation is improved with this treatment. The destruction of fatty deposits and collagen repair is also helped. The under-eye circles reduced as the blood flow increases around the eye. Other problems physicians use carboxytherapy treatment include concerns derived from blood circulations like Raynaud’s syndrome, erectile dysfunction, acute arthritis, as well as alopecia. The procedure is often preferred over more invasive and high-risk methods, like liposuction to cellulite reduction and reduce fat. With this in mind, we at Skin and Body Refinery would like to take the opportunity to share carboxytherapy basics.

Carboxytherapy Results

Being spaced out 1 week apart, people usually require 7 to 10 treatments of carboxytherapy before results are noticeable. To treat face, eyelids, neck, face, stomach, legs, arms, and buttocks, this method is safe and effective. Though the mechanics are similar the specifics of the procedure will vary based on the part of the body being treated.

Carboxytherapy Procedure

Connecting to a flow-regulator to a tank of carbon dioxide gas is a plastic tubing. To carefully regulate the tank, the amount of gas flows steadily. The gas then runs through a very small needle on the opposite side of the filter. Through the needle beneath the skin is where the gas is injected. Before the needle is inserted, the procedure is nearly painless, and in some cases a numbing cream may be rubbed on the injection site. Some people experience a strange sensation, despite the lack of pain following the treatment. As is an outpatient procedure, carboxytherapy usually only takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

What Causes Cellulite, Stretch Marks & Under Eye Circles

Due to poor blood circulation partially, stretch marks, cellulite, and dark under-eye circles manifest. The cells in the body release carbon dioxide as waste. Eventually being exhaled by the lungs, red blood cells take the oxygen you inhale and carry it to tissues and then pick up carbon dioxide. By injecting carbon dioxide, the red blood cells are rushed to the area the increase blood circulation to a specific area. When the blood cells reach the location, they create an increase in circulation. It works to repair skin elasticity as it changes pigment to a healthy glow in the case of under-eye circles.
Cellulite: Capable of being injected into fat cells, the cells will burst and be eliminated in the body from the carbon dioxide gas. Cellulite is the result when subcutaneous fat protrudes through the skin. When used to treat cellulite in several performed studies, carboxytherapy is both safe effective.
Alopecia: Poor circulation can lead to alopecia (hair loss) which carboxytherapy also treats.
Stretch Marks: A stretch mark is a rupture of dermal collagen. Carboxytherapy creates new collagen as the skin thickens and improves the appearance.
Under-Eye Circles: Dark circles under the eyes develop as the vascular pooling is caused by poor circulation. By injecting the gas under the eyelid reduces this bluish pooling a blush tone replaces bluish pooling as it is reduced.
