One of the treatments to treat skin imperfections on the body is carboxytherapy. It is an FDA-approved treatment to treat scars, stretch marks, cellulite and other skin imperfections.

The procedure consists of a series of injections that stimulate circulation and increase collagen production.


What is carboxytherapy

Originating in France around 1930, carboxytherapy has been an increasingly popular treatment for improving skin conditions for the past few years.

It is a very quick procedure, typically a few tens of minutes, that stimulates blood circulation and collagen production.

This response of the body is useful to treat skin signs such as scars and stretch marks, but also in case of cellulite. In fact, CO2 injected inside the fat cells allows their rapid disposal.


Strumentation for carboxytherapy to the body

Similarly to the carboxytherapy of the face, the “carboxy-pen” is also used for the body.  This is a specialized instrumentation for CO2 and mesotherapy treatment that allows you to set flow, dosage and depth parameters quickly and easily.

Thanks to our clinic’s experience and use of state-of-the-art instrumentation like this, carboxytherapy results are guaranteed.


What results I get with carboxytherapy for the body

Carbon dioxide injections into the body are an established treatment recognized by the global community because of its results.

By diffusing into the tissues, CO2 comes into contact with water, causing the release of carbonic acid molecules. These molecules decrease tissue pH levels, stimulating the body to release more oxygen and increase blood flow.

This body response allows the body to heal skin blemishes and nourish tissues.

The main effects of carboxytherapy on the body include:

  • Reduction of water retention
  • Skin improvement of dried-out areassuch as hands and elbows
  • Reduction of skin accumulations of fat in areas such as the abdominals or hips
  • Reduction of scars and stretch marks


How a carboxytherapy treatment works on the body

After analyzing with the clinic’s medical staff the results that can be achieved through the treatment, the first session of injections is carried out.

Each treatment is painless and the sensation of injection is similar to that of drawing blood.

The duration of each treatment is very fast. Depending on the areas to be treated, it ranges from a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 30 minutes.

Results are not immediately visible after the first session. Cycles of 8-10 sessions, about a week apart, are required to see results over the long term.

If all the clinical facility’s directions on sessions are followed, carboxytherapy results can last up to 12 months.


Aside effects of carboxytherapy to the body

As with all most aesthetic procedures, there are side effects. They are, however, very limited and mainly concern the appearance of slippage, swelling and redness in the treated areas.

However, these effects should not worry us as they are temporary and will automatically fade away within a few days.
