Body Carboxitherapy

Carboxytherapy is one of the best therapies to combat cellulite and flaccidity. The efficacy of the treatment lies in the fact that it is able to act directly on one of the factors causing cellulite: vascular compromise and the involvement of the microcirculation of the area.
Carboxytherapyconsists of the application of carbon dioxide gas through subcutaneous microinjectionsin the affected tissues. The injection of CO2 produces an automatic vasodilation of the vascularization of the area to be treated, improving gas exchange,restoring microcirculation and increasing the quantity and speed of blood flow.
This improved circulation results in increased gas exchange between CO2 and O2, allowing O2 (oxygen) to be used for metabolic reactions, including fat burning.
The result obtained is an improvement in the quality of the skin, a decrease in the volume of the treated area and relief of the symptoms that accompany cellulite, such as heaviness in the legs.
The technique is very simple. It is performed through a device that allows controlling the flow rate, injection time and monitoring the CO2 dose administered. Several injections are given with a very small diameter needle. The gas diffuses rapidly to adjacent tissues.
There are no side effects, except for a slight and fleeting pain in the area of application and a small reddening that lasts a few minutes. The amount of gas insufflated under the skin greatly influences the result. The greater the quantity introduced, the greater the efficiency; efficiency multiplies exponentially. For this purpose, it is necessary to treat the areas by introducing at least 2000 ml into the area to be treated.
The carbon dioxide gas passes into the circulation and is eliminated by respiration as the CO2 we breathe. It takes 24 hours to be eliminated and therefore up to three sessions can be performed every other day of the week. A Carboxytherapy session lasts approximately 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. The number of sessions is variable but a minimum of 10sessions is considered necessary.
Once the session is over, the patient can return to his/her daily life activities, avoiding the sun for the next 24-48 hours.
Carboxytherapy has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of recent hypertrophic scarsand in the improvement of new stretch marks.
