Treatment For Dark Under-Eye Circles, Stretch-Marks, Cellulite Reduction And Non-Surgical Fat Sculpting On The Face And Body
What Is Carboxytherapy And How Does It Work?
Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars are believed to caused, at least in part, due to poor blood-flow to the region. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are “tricking” the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation.
Carboxytherapy is used for the treatment of dark under-eye circles, stretch-marks, cellulite reduction, and non-surgical fat sculpting on the face and the body.
How Does Carboxytherapy Work For Dark Undereye Circles?
Carboxytherapy works to improve the capillary network of the lower eyelids, as well as to increase the dermal collagen layer in the lower eyelid skin. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the affected areas, blood flow is increased and improved capillary networks are formed for longer lasting circulatory benefit. The bluish cast is replaced with a healthy pink tone. Once a series of treatments is completed, the skin has a more luminous appearance that lasts approximately six months.
How Does Carboxytherapy Work For Stretchmarks, Cellulite And Fat Reduction?
Stretchmarks (striae distensae) occur when the skin is stretched to the point where the dermal collagen ruptures. Carboxytherapy causes the formation of new collagen and subsequently thickens the skin to improve the appearance of the stretchmarks by rebuilding the collagen matrix.
When injected via a specific technique, carbon dioxide gas is directly toxic to fat cells. The fat cells literally burst and are eliminated by the body.
