Carboxy therapy is used for the treatment of dark under-eye circles, stretch-marks or cellulite reduction. In addition to increasing oxygenated blood-flow to the region injected, carboxy therapy also increases collagen formation in the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the affected areas, blood flow is increased and improved capillary networks are formed for longer lasting circulatory benefit. The bluish cast is replaced with a healthy pink tone. Once a series of treatments is completed, the skin has a more luminous appearance that lasts approximately six months.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends upon the severity of the problem being treated. Usually, six to twelve treatments spaced one week apart yields an excellent result.
