Non-Invasive Carboxytherapy is a treatment during which a gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), is infused into the skin to encourage an increased flow of oxygen. Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas in the body and as such it can not cause any allergic or other unwanted reactions.
This minimally invasive treatment can offer long lasting skin improvements such as:
- Elastin stimulation
- Tissue tightening and brightening
- Skin regeneration
- Reduction of dark under-eye circles
- Improvement in circulation
- Improved lymphoid drainage
What is the principle of carboxytherapy treatment?
By infusing carbon dioxide into the skin, an acidic environment develops. This signals our organism to secure oxygen to the tissue in the treated region and accumulate natural growth factors (vascular endothelial growth factors). Within several days after the treatment there is an increased natural distribution of oxygen in the places of application, a completely new microcirculation is created, lymphoid drainage is increased and in this way skin regeneration is achieved in a natural way.
What does a carboxytherapy treatment look like?
During the treatment, a Carboxytherapy Gel is applied to the face in an even layer. A Carboxytherapy Activator Face Mask is then pressed firmly onto the gel. The interface produces a specific amount of carbon dioxide, which is infused into the skin.
During the treatment the client/patient may feel a slight tingling and the treated area can become mildly red due to a sudden deposit of oxygen. Within 5 minutes post treatment, the carbon dioxide applied to the skin is completely replaced by oxygen. The client/patient can go back to their usual activities after treatment and no recovery period is required.
How many carboxytherapy treatments are required?
Depending on the desired results a series of between 4 to 8 treatments of non-invasive carboxytherapy may be required and the treatments can be conducted once every 7 to 14 days. The effects of a Carboxytherapy treatment are cumulative – with every subsequent treatment improving the results of the previous one.
After having a course of carboxytherapy treatments, the average effects last (until you need the next course of treatments):
about 2-3 months: age 50+
about 3-4 months: age 40+
about 4-6 months: age 20 - 40
