If you’re not familiar with Carboxy Therapy, also known as CO2lift, you probably will be soon. This non-surgical treatment is quickly becoming one of the top skin rejuvenation methods, targeting cellulite, stretch marks, and more. It involves injecting very small amounts of carbon dioxide underneath the skin to break down fatty deposits and stimulate collagen production.
What is Carboxy Therapy?
Carboxy Therapy originated in French spas in the 1930s and was used to treat patients with eye disease. In later years, doctors in South America and Europe began using it to rejuvenate the skin. During Carboxy Therapy, carbon dioxide is injected under the surface of the skin, with a microneedle. The carbon dioxide goes directly into the bloodstream.
How is Carboxy Therapy used?
There are many benefits of Carboxy Therapy. This carbon dioxide injection targets cellulite, stretch marks, scars, and dark under-eye circles. It can be applied to many parts of the body, including the face, neck, stomach, arms, buttocks, and legs. It’s also used for fat-sculpting on the face and the body, and increases collagen formation in the skin, giving you a more youthful look.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of Carboxy Therapy treatments you will need varies and is based on the severity of the problem you want to address. Some patients will notice a change after just one treatment, but for the optimal results, we suggest 6 to 12 treatments spaced one week apart. Treatments take about 15 to 30 minutes. You might feel a little discomfort, some redness and bruising at the site is possible, especially when getting treated on the arms and legs.
