Carboxy Therapy

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, 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.

  • Stretch marks: The stretch marks that you see on your thighs, arms, or back are caused due to the rupture of dermal collagen in that area. Carboxy therapy helps create new collagen, which thickens the skin and improves its appearance.
  • Under Eye Dark Circles: Dark circles are a result of poor blood circulation along with damaged tissues underneath the eye. This causes vascular pooling which leads to skin darkening. Injecting carbon dioxide under the eyelid reduced the bluish pooling and replaces it with a healthier, glowing skin texture that matches the patient’s skin tone.

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.

Side effects of Carboxy Therapy

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 are further distended. The itchiness will resolve under 5 minutes.

Also, there is no downtime in Carboxy therapy and patients can instantly return to their work and normal life immediately. The only precautionary measure taken post a carboxy therapy is that the treated area should not be immersed in water for about 4-6 hours from the treatment. A series of 4-8 treatments is often sufficient enough to provide best results.
