Carboxytherapy consists in the therapeutic use of carbon dioxide (CO2) administered under the skin, where fat deposits are found. This innovative treatment has turned out to be one of the best treatments with which to combat cellulite, excess fat and corporal and/or facial aging.
The administration of CO2 in places where cellulite appears allows the recovery of the smoothness of skin by providing proper circulation. In this way, carboxytherapy augments the quantity and speed of the blood flow, diminishing the accumulation of liquids between cells and disintegrating the fat located the hipo-dermis. Additionally, the treatment stimulates local metabolism in a completely natural way by augmenting micro-circulation, eliminating toxins and activating the destruction of fatty tissue.
Carboxytherapy is a simple procedure that consists in the injection of pure CO2 within the subcutaneous layer of the skin using a very fine needle. Due to the great diffusive quality of liquid CO2, once it has penetrated the fatty tissue, it easily spreads to adjacent tissues. Once there, it exerts its positive effect on the blood flow and rapidly stimulates de local metabolism.
The experts on this therapy state that tangible results can be obtained during the first session. After this initial application, the skin of the treated area becomes visibly smoother, the quality of the tissue improves and the zone loses volume slightly.
The treatment usually takes around 12 to 15 sessions, each application taking around 30 to 40 minutes. Sessions can be done twice a week.
