Carboxytherapy for the Body

It improves skin elasticity, strengthens blood circulation and dissolves local fat. Carboxytherapy is a treatment that continuously gains ground in the field of Cosmetic Medicine, due to the wide range of applications.
It was born in France’s royal spas in 1932, when it was found that patients who bathed in the thermal waters that were rich in carbon dioxide showed quicker wound healing. Furthermore both in Europe and in the United States it is applied for the treatment of cellulite, local fat and skin loosening.
Carboxytherapy actually benefits from the normal body process: the use of oxygen to eliminate carbon dioxide. Therefore, safe doses of carboxy are applied at the problematic areas, to enhance blood circulation in the area, as the blood is oxygen’s carrier. The best blood perfusion and oxygenation induce the angiogenesis of new blood cells in the problematic areas, with beneficial effects.
It is also worth noting that carboxy – contraty to carbon monoxide – is not toxic for the body. Carboxytherapy can be safely applied on the scalp, the eyelids, the face, the neck, the stomach, the hips and the legs. Through the reconstruction of collagen matrix, the skin becomes tighter and firmer, while the lesions become less visible.
If the treatment is applied for cellulite, collagen reconstruction is achieved, while at the same time carbon dioxide contributes in the breakdown of adipose cells that are responsible for local fat and intensify the unsightly appearance of “orange peel”. Poor blood circulation is partly responsible in conditions like cellulite and local fat. Therefore the application of carboxy constitutes an absolutely natural treatment.
An average treatment session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes and the patient feels only a slight pressure on the area of application.
In general, four to twelve treatment sessions are necessary, depending on the nature and extent of the problem, while frequently some repeat sessions are also recommended every six months to establish the result.
