Carboxytherapy produces results similar to face-lift. The treatment also aims to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. It is an affordable treatment for those who want to reverse signs of ageing on their faces (including the neck area).
What is carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is a treatment that uses carbon dioxide in controlled doses to treat a number of aesthetic conditions. It was first discovered in 1946 in France, when physicians noticed that patients with circulation problems improved in the carbon dioxide-rich thermal waters of Royat.
The indications for this therapy have extended since then from treating medical problems to its application in aesthetic medicine as an effective treatment for stretch marks, cellulite, localized fat deposits, scars, hair loss, improvement of skin laxity, wrinkles and dark circle under the eyes.
Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas that the body produces as a byproduct of respiration and cellular metabolism. As such, it is safe to use; in fact, it is used extensively in medicine every day, such as in colonoscopies and laparoscopic surgery. Carbon dioxide has no toxicity even in elevated doses.
