CO2 carboxy therapy may be exactly what you need if you are worried about your dark circles affecting your appearance or if you are tired of looking in the mirror every day and seeing dark masks that make you look older than you really are. It is a non-invasive treatment that has been tested and proven to work.

So, what is carboxy therapy? It is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment that involves the transcutaneous and subcutaneous administration of CO2 for therapeutic reasons. The origin of this treatment is the Royal Spas of France in 1932, where it was used for treating patients affected by the obliteration of the arteriopathies.

Carboxy therapy involves injections which are meant to infuse the carbon dioxide below the skin into the subcutaneous tissue via a needle. It is said that it can kill fat cells, stimulate the flow of blood, reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the elasticity of the skin. Even though it is not yet clinically tested or approved by the FDA, it has become a very popular way of treating stretch marks.

In Europe and South America, this therapy is used for treating stretch marks, cellulite as well hypertrophic scars, and the results are very impressive. According to findings from studies, this therapy improves the elasticity of the skin, encourages collagen repair, improves circulation, destroys localized fatty deposits and improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

CO2 carboxy therapy was developed in aesthetic medicine in order to minimize skin irregularity due to residual fat deposits after liposuction. When CO2 is injected into residual fat deposits,  it can reduce or eliminate post liposuction residual fat deposits as well as improved skin regularity.
