Carboxy therapy is the use of medicale carbon dioxide ( CO2 ) for therapeutic purposes, administered (with thin needles) subcutaneously and intradermally by microinjection through a specific equipment.
Where was Carboxy- therapy invented
The beginnings of such therapy dates back to the thirties at a French health spa (Royat), where Carboxy therapy was mainly used for circulatory problems. Over the years and up to 1994 , 20000 arteriopathic patients have been treated . This high number of patients' is an implicit validation not only of the therapeutic efficacy but also of the safety of the method
The session is performed by injecting carbon dioxide subcutaneously by a tiny needle , which quickly spreads throughout the surrounding area and carries out its function . The treatment is safe for the patient, because the carbon dioxide is non-toxic and does not cause embolism: is compatible with the human body that consistently produces it and clears through the venous system through the lungs
Studies and clinical investigations have shown that carbon dioxide produces the following effects:
• microcirculation : reopens the closed capillaries , reactivates those that do not work and increases the percentage of oxygen in the tissues by improving the situation such as swollen leg to ulcers of various natures
• fatty tissue : it breaks the membranes of fat cells ( lipoclasic effect) reduces the accumulated fat
• skin : the increase of the oxygen in the tissues , improves the skin elasticity, therefore you’ll have a skin rejuvenation
It’ one of the few treatments with scientific and clinical verifications of safety and efficacy in localized fat , blemishes cellulite (improves skin laxity , stretch marks, etc.) has a significant effect on blood circulation ( are treated from venous insufficiency to vascular ulcers).
the treatment can be done during and after a diet, it’s not necessary to lose weight in general, but to improve the aesthetic result and toning the tissues .
is an effective anti-aging method of the face ,the tissue oxygenation improves the skin tone ,elasticity , wrinkles and the complexion
is an effective method for toning , to improve the relaxation of the tissues that are difficult to treat ,such as arms and inner thigh
Significant effect on cellulite, there is a smoothing of the skin with a volume reduction of localized fat
Effect on Fat , it reduces the fat accumulated on the abdomen and hips
Effects on circulation ,reduces the sense of heaviness and swollen legs
These are the reasons why the Carboxytherapy finds its applications in
- Plastic Surgery
- Aesthetic Medicine
- Anti-aging medicine
Patients who suffer from: severe renal insufficiency, arterial thrombosis, those who are following treatment with inhibitors of carbon dioxide, cardiac tachyarrhythmias, previous stroke, pregnancy, thrombophlebitis, severe anemia. These are the reasons bacause the physician should evaluate the correct state of health of the patient before .
The treatment is performed in outpatient The average cycle are 12 sessions a weekly basis. Each session lasts 25-30 minutes and you can return to normal activities immediately .
