This technique involves the subcutaneous infusion of carbon dioxide for the treatment of localized fat. Several studies describe the effectiveness of the Carboxytherapy demonstrating measurable reductions in circumference regions of abdomen, thighs and knees. There is also evidence of collagen remodeling induced by the intradermal injections of CO2. This technique has also been frequently used for cosmetic changes such as cellulite, facial skin rejuvenation, alopecia, dark circles and stretch marks. Its use is recommended after liposuction surgery, improving the appearance of the skin and dissolving the fat deposits to be removed naturally by lymphatic pathways.
The CarboSkin regulates the output pressure of CO2, The unit is controlled by microprocessors, which through its screen allows you to select the protocols established for aesthetic pathologies or through the use of the manual programming option, allows you to program total and partial doses of CO2.
CarboSkin is designed with safety standards like warning signals in case of:
- Low pressure,
- When the system is purged
- When the system is ready for application
- After completing each of the dosages
- Skin Tightening
- Stretch Marks
- Double Chin
- Skin Tightening
- Stubborn Fat
- Stretch Marks
Carbon dioxide stimulates microcirculation improving the content of water and nutrients to the skin, activates the fibroblasts responsible for collagen and elastin production and stimulates the production of natural antioxidants.
1. DOES CARBOXYTHERAPY PRODUCE FREE RADICALS PROMOTING AGING?
It does not produce free radicals, it favors the production of natural antioxidants in our tissues.
2. IF I APPLY CARBOXYTHERAPY CAN I EXERCISE?
Physical exercise does not interfere with your carboxytherapy treatment. On the contrary, it enhances it.
3. IN A PROTOCOL FOR BODY CONTOURING HOW DOES THE LOCALIZED FAT ITS BEING REMOVED FROM THE BODY?
The effect is mechanical and biochemical. Firstly, and quite simply carbon dioxide mechanically kills fat cells. Secondly, it also has a vasodilatory effect (causes dilation of blood vessels) on the capillaries in the area, improving the blood flow and increasing the oxygen; the increase in oxygen is important because it eliminates the built up fluid from between the cells. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue. The fatty liquids are released into the lymphatic area and are eliminated by the urine.
4. IS CARBOXYTHERAPY PAINFUL?
The treatment is not painful, It is somewhat uncomfortable. Some patients can experience a light tingling sensation near the injection site. It disappears within a matter of seconds. As a result of the increased circulation the area surrounding th injection site may feel warmer for 10-20 minutes. Clients usually do not feel anything when treating scars as there are no nerve endings in scar tissue.
5. IS CARBOXYTHERAPY ONLY FOR WOMEN?
It is a treatment that can be performed by both women and men.
Carboxytherapy has the property of returning to the skin the shine and moisture lost over time, with the increase of oxygenation it improves the quality of the skin, improving its texture, the skin feels softer and brighter, the expression lines on eyelids and in the nasolabial fold.
The flaccidity is the loss of firmness of the skin, in these cases the CO2 acts stimulating the formation of collagen and elastin indispensable factors to maintain good elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Carboxytherapy stimulates lipolysis directly in the area that is placed, subcutaneously localized adiposity is often seen in very thin or mid-sized people who are happy with their appearance, except for a few accumulations of fat in annoying areas, such as the arms, at the level of the armpits, hips, flanks, etc. Carboxytherapy is ideal for abdominal subcutaneous fat, both peri umbilical and in the lateral areas, mandible and double chin.
Cellulite, is an alteration in the microcirculation of the skin, that causes retention of fluids and waste substances, causing accumulation of subcutaneous fat and fibrosis.
Carboxitherapy improves the microcirculation of the skin. improving the metabolism, has positive effects on collagen and elastin in such a way that it improves fibrosis.
Carboxytherapy works by improving oxygenation and circulation in the area that is injected. It does this by making the red bloods cells release oxygen and pick up the C02 so it can be eliminated from the body. This process effectively breaths new life into the hair follicle, which stimulates hair growth and regeneration of hair, increases blood circulation in the scalp, regulates sebaceous secretion and returns normal coloring to hair.
Healing is a process of the body to regenerate the tissues of dermis and epidermis. The co2 stimulates the microcirculation in the tissue promoting collagen and elastin production, helps to improve the oxygenation of the area and visibly reduces fibrosis promoting good healing.
Carboxytherapy for the post-operative treatment of liposuction procedures avoids irregularities and avoids fibrosis formation.
Stretch marks are atrophic lesions of the skin in a linear and pearly whitish color. They are usually located on the abdomen, hips, buttocks, legs, thighs, arms, back and breasts and can appear in both women and men. There are many treatments proposed to attenuate stretch marks, Carboxytherapy is presented as the best alternative to achieve the goal. carbon dioxide activates the circulation, and favors the production and reorganization of collagen and elastin. Even in old striations (white) showing extraordinary results.
