Cellulite, dark under-eye circles, and stretch marks are treated with carboxytherapy. The treatment improves circulation and skin elasticity as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it helps with the destruction of fatty deposits and collagen repair. As the blood flow increases around the eye, the under-eye circles reduced. Other problems caused from blood circulation such as acute arthritis, Raynaud’s syndrome, erectile dysfunction, and alopecia are being treated by physicians as well. The procedure is often preferred over more invasive and high risk methods, such as liposuction to reduce fat and cellulite reduction. Today, we at https://www.skinandbodyrefinery.com/about-us/ would like to elaborate further on carboxytherapy.

Frequency of Carboxytherapy Treatments

Before results are noticeable, people usually require 7 to 10 treatments of carboxytherapy, spaced out 1 week apart. It is safely and effectively used to treat face, eyelids, neck, stomach, arms, legs, and buttocks. Based on the part of the body being treated, the specifics of the procedure will vary, though the mechanics are similar.

Carboxytherapy Machine Procedure

With plastic tubing a tank of carbon dioxide gas is connected to a flow regulator. The amount of gas flows from the tank is carefully regulated carefully. On the opposite side of the filter, the gas then runs through a very small needle. Beneath the skin through the needle, a gas is injected. The procedure is nearly painless, and in some cases a numbing cream may be rubbed on the injection site before the needle is inserted. Following the treatment, despite the lack of pain, some people experience a strange sensation. Carboxytherapy usually only takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete and is an outpatient procedure.

How Does Carpoxytherapy Work?

Cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles is partially due to poor blood circulation. As waste, the cells in the body release carbon dioxide. Red blood cells take the oxygen you inhale and carry it to tissues and then pick up carbon dioxide, which eventually is exhaled by lungs. Causing the red blood cells to rush to the area the increased blood circulation to a specific area by injecting carbon dioxide. This creates an increase in circulation when the blood cells reach the location.
Stretch marks: A rupture of dermal collagen is a stretch mark. The skin thickens and improves the appearance as carboxytherapy creates new collagen.
Cellulite: The cells will burst and be eliminated in the body from the carbon dioxide gas that can also be injected into fat cells. When subcutaneous fat protrudes through the skin, cellulite is the result. Carboxytherapy is both safe effective when used to treat cellulite in several performed studies.
Dark under eye circles: Vascular pooling is caused by poor circulation, manifesting dark circles under the eyes. A blush tone replaces bluish pooling as it is reduced by injecting the gas under the eyelid reduces this bluish pooling. Carboxytherapy works to repair skin elasticity as it changes pigment to a healthy glow.
Alopecia: Carboxytherapy also treats alopecia (hair loss) caused by poor circulation.
