Carboxy therapy has become one of the most effective skin rejuvenation treatments globally. It is a safe, minimally invasive and clinically proven treatment that targets at the cellulite and stretch marks. Carboxy therapy involves injecting tiny amounts of carbon dioxide beneath the skin to break down fatty acids and stimulate production of collagen.
Poor blood circulation is partially responsible for causing visible stretch marks treatment, skin laxity and even dark under eye circles. A physician or a medical expert can increase blood circulation in a specific area by injecting carbon dioxide, which causes the red blood cells to rush to the area.
When these cells are rushed to a particular place, they increase blood circulation in that area which in turn causes increased collagen and elastin production. These two chemicals then repair skin elasticity and in the case of dark under eye circles, change the pigment to a healthier glow that resembled with the normal skin tone of the patient.
Carboxy therapy is known to treat dark circles under the eyes, reduce skin laxity, visibility of cellulites, wrinkles, stretch marks and restore the natural, supple and soft texture of the skin. It is a safe treatment as it uses carbon dioxide, a natural byproduct of the body which is non toxic even at elevated levels, unless a pre-existing medical condition already exists.
The CO2 gas is absorbed within 5 minutes of the injection and the treated skin area becomes normal. Carbon dioxide is actually 20 times more soluble than oxygen which makes it easy to diffuse from the injection site to the surrounding tissues.
After the injection of CO2 in the skin, the treated area rises a bit and turns slightly red as the oxygen is perfused into the area which undergoes an inflammatory response that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
There have not been any reported cases of side effects linked with Carboxy therapy. Millions of people have used it and found the treatment to be safe and highly effective. You can expect to feel a sensation that resembles a dull throbbing or slight pressure. But this is completely normal and will fade away almost instantly with a maximum time frame of 2-4 minutes.
Carboxy therapy is a painless procedure as it targets scar tissues which do not contain any nerves. Although you might feel a tingling feeling as the stretch marks treatment are further distended. The itchiness will resolve under 5 minutes.
