Carbon dioxide therapy has been applied to the treatment of stretch marks, cellulite, hypertrophic scars, Dark under-eye circles and have all been shown to have some root cause in poor blood circulation and have been treated by Carboxy Therapy with impressive results. When the blood cells are exposed to high concentrations of carbon dioxide, they flip their conformation, release the oxygen molecules and pick up the carbon dioxide so that we can exhale it from our lungs. In a sense, by injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area.
Studies have demonstrated that Carboxy Therapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys localized fatty deposits. Clinical studies have shown Carboxy to be one of the top innovative procedures for reducing the overall appearance, texture and color that you are left with after surgical procedures.
There are no known risks associated with Carboxy Therapy Carbon dioxide injection.
