Carboxytherapy Academic Cours
Carboxitherapy consists in the application of localized micro injections of CO2 by means of equipment specially designed for that purpose. This team is responsible for controlling the gas flow rate, the dose administered and the injection time.
The introduction of CO2 is carried out subcutaneously thanks to a thin needle to which the gas reaches through a flexible conduit connected to the equipment.
Carbon Dioxide Therapy or Carboxytherapy is a revolutionary new skin rejuvenation treatment.
Carboxytherapy originated at the Royal Spas of France in 1932, where bathing in carbon dioxide rich water was shown to promote wound healing.
We need oxygen to breathe, and so does your skin. As we age, the body undergoes a general slowing down in many of its normal renewal processes.
What is Carboxytherapy?Carboxytherapy is a procedure that uses carbon dioxide gas (CO2) and helps to get rid of stretch marks, cellulite and scars, as well as plumping the skin.
How does Carboxy work?
Micro injections of carbon dioxide are injected just beneath the surface of the skin in small quantities. As the body recognizes this, it immediately interprets it as a lack of oxygen, and speeds oxygen flow to the area, improving circulation, which in turn stimulates cell reproduction, breaks down fat cells, and boost collagen formation.
What areas can be treated?
Treatments are generally performed on the face, neck, arms, abdomen and thighs. The most common aesthetic indications for treatment with carboxytherapy are for cellulite, stretch marks, acne scars, skin laxity, baldness and wrinkle reduction.
How many treatments are necessary?
For the face, a course of between four and six treatments is usually required for optimum results, each session would last between 15 and 45 minutes. Combining carboxytherapy treatments with mesotherapy, radio frequency, and cavitation offers greater results, especially for patients with “stubborn pockets of fat”.
What to expect before and after treatment?
There is no downtime, and you can resume your normal activity immediately. Patients can return to work immediately after treatment. There is minimal discomfort, and most describe as feeling like a dull throb or slight pressure in the treated area. The gas is completely absorbed and diffused by the body normally, within a short period, and there may be some redness or slight bruising. There are no known risks or unwanted effects with Carboxytherapy. It is considered totally safe.
