Carboxytherapy (treatment for stretch marks, cellulite and localised fat)
Carboxytherapy is a safe and natural medical procedure that involves the use of carbon dioxide gas for therapeutic purposes. Clinical studies have demonstrated that carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity and circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys localised fat deposits.
Who is the procedure suitable for?
Carboxytherapy is suitable for anyone aged 18 and upwards who suffers from any of the following:
- stretch marks
- localised fat deposits
What can I expect?
A pure CO2 gas is injected beneath the skin, creating a small bubble-like appearance as the gas disperses around the targeted area. It works by infusing CO2 (a natural gas) below the skin, which causes blood vessels to dilate. In doing so, it improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This improved circulation helps to eliminate the build-up of fluid between cells, resulting in skin rejuvenation, issue remodelling and improved skin elasticity. Treatments are carried out every two - four weeks by a qualified practitioner who will advise how many treatments are required. Each treatment usually lasts for about 15 minutes. There is little discomfort and no "down time".
Carboxytherapy is safe for all skin types. It is the only treatment available for both old and new stretch marks.
