Currently, carboxytherapy is one of the best therapies to fight cellulite, excess body fat, sagging and ageing skin on the body and face. It is a non-surgical method that consists of the therapeutic use of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) subcutaneously.
The origin of this therapy is from the thermal hot spring water station of Royat in France, specifically in the early 50′s, when a group of cardiologists applied the therapy to patients suffering from various diseases related to poor blood circulation and accumulation of fat. Carboxytherapy is performed through specially prepared equipment which allows the regulation of the flow rate, injection time and monitoring the percentage of administered dose. The CO2 acts in the affected area and is disposed of very rapidly.
This treatment is based on the use of CO2 as a therapeutic gas through hypodermic application. As seen in the latest scientific papers on cellulite, carboxytherapy is the best possible treatment for this disease. This treatment has no side effect because CO2 is harmless to the human body. It is not painful. The patient can see positive results almost immediately. The treatment is relatively short; the average duration is of 8 to 10 weeks (two sessions per week). Restores normal blood microcirculation in the affected areas.
The unit has a large LCD to ease the use. Equipment developed through a microprocessor that controls the rate of flow of CO2 to achieve a painless treatment. Through the control menu, the professional can applied in each session the total dose of CO2 with high accuracy and repeatedly. The total volume of CO2 per dose may vary from 10 cm3 to 990 cm3. Requires a supply or cylinder of CO2 with a pressure regulator valve. No need for complicated accessories. Just a bacteriological filter and a pipe to the luer lock syringe.
This treatment is used in:
aesthetic medicine, cellulite, obesity, before and after liposuction treatments, before and after skin grafts, sports medicine, ulcers, etc
Cellulite, Located obesity (helps reduce measures), Sagging, Stretch Marks, Micro varicose and Pre and post liposculpture (improving results avoiding fibrosis)
How does it work?
When penetrating CO2 as gas, it produces a hyperinflation of the subcutaneous tissue releasing bradykinin, serotonin, histamine and catecholamines that stimulate beta-adrenergic receptors producing lipolysis (destruction of fat cells).
From the injection site the CO2 diffuses easily to the adjacent tissues, exerting its function. A manual massage movement that helps distribute and circulate the carbon dioxide completes its introduction under the skin. CO2, when in contact with fat, spreads, and part of it goes to red blood cells: in the contact with hemoglobin, it yields the oxygen to the tissues. That oxygen can be used for metabolic reactions and produces stimulation for fat burning.
The first results are seen immediately, the quality of the tissue improves, skin becomes smoother and the affected areas become thinner. Dealing effectively with the problem of cellulite, improving further the bloodstream. This gas helps improve the intracellular exchange and cellular nutrition of people with cellulite.
