CARBOXYTHERAPY


If you are suffering from dark circles underneath your eyes, scarring or cellulite then you may wish to consider Carboxy Therapy – a treatment whereby we introduce carbon dioxide gas to your face or body help to increase blood flow to the affected region. This is an effective non-invasive treatment to sculpt your face or body.

TREATMENT SUMMARY

Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Carbon Dioxide is the gas that gives carbonated beverages their “fizz.” Carbon dioxide is naturally present in our bodies at all times and it is essential to the life processes of both animals and plants. This carbon dioxide can actually be very useful. 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 CO2 that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is CarboxyTherapy?

Carboxy Therapy works by tricking the body into believing it needs to increase oxygen flow to your affected area by encouraging all red blood cells to pick up the extra CO2. The CO2 is then transported to the lungs to be eliminated from the body when you breathe. Carbon Dioxide is usually present in our bodies at all times and is important for the body to function normally – with this treatment, we simply increase your levels slightly. We usually treat skin conditions such as scars, cellulite, and dark circles under your eyes with this extremely effective treatment.

How do we use CarboxyTherapy?

As well as under-eye dark circles, cellulite, and scars, we can also effectively treat stretch marks as well as fat sculpting on the face and body.

What areas of the body can be treated with CarboxyTherapy?

We can use Carboxy Therapy to treat the eyelids, face, neck, arms, or stomach.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments that every individual may need varies according to what they wish to treat and the severity of the issue. We recommend between six and twelve treatments spaced one week apart, but we can discuss this more with you at your initial consultation.
