Carboxytherapy is a treatment that has many uses, during which the action of carbon dioxide is used. Depending on the effect we want to achieve, it consists in intradermal or subcutaneous, precise application of controlled doses of medical carbon dioxide by injection (puncture).
Carboxytherapy is dedicated to various parts of the body and aesthetic problems. As the name suggests, the treatment uses the beneficial effects of carbon dioxide. It helps to effectively improve the appearance of the whole body, reduce baldness, reduce the visibility of stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles and bags under the eyes. Carboxytherapy is used in androgenetic alopecia and areata, because it effectively supports the fight against excessive hair loss. It is also excellent in the treatment of psoriasis. The treatment is also used for prophylactic purposes to nourish weak, damaged hair.
Carboxytherapy – what is it?
Carboxytherapy involves injecting carbon dioxide under the skin, which dilates blood vessels. As a result, the cells become oxygenated and better nourished. The treatment itself also stimulates the process of their renewal and collagen production. During carboxytherapy, the process of lipolysis occurs, i.e. fat breakdown – thanks to this, cellulite is clearly reduced. Due to the expansion of blood vessels, carboxytherapy turns out to be extremely effective when applied to the face and other parts of the body, including the scalp.
Carboxytherapy – for whom?
Carboxytherapy is extremely versatile in aesthetic medicine. All thanks to the fact that carbon dioxide, which disperses in the tissues, is able to initiate many changes that contribute to the formation of various aesthetic defects. Indications for the procedure include, among others:
- scars, also post acne
- stretch marks
- wrinkles and furrows
- dark circles and bags under the eyes
- uneven skin tone
- drooping eyelids
- double chin
- circulatory disorders
- loss of firmness, including sagging after pregnancy
- excess body fat
- excessive hair loss
Recommendations before the procedure
The carboxytherapy treatment does not require any special preparation. It is worth remembering not to take aspirin and other drugs that reduce blood clotting for 48 hours before the procedure.
Recommendations after the procedure
Bathing is not recommended for 4 hours after carboxytherapy, and sunbathing, sauna and solarium should be avoided for 24 hours after the procedure. Within 2 days, you should not massage the places that have been treated.
Effects of carboxytherapy
The effects vary depending on the purpose for which we perform the procedure. Stretch marks undergoing carboxytherapy do not return to their original state afterwards. Cellulite or locally accumulated adipose tissue undergo a significant reduction, the durability of which depends on the subsequent lifestyle and compliance with post-treatment recommendations. In many cases, it is recommended to perform a series of booster treatments, usually once a quarter.
