Carboxytherapy has its origins in the thermal world of the 30s when the benefits of carbon dioxide were found in thermal water.
Today, thanks to new technology, carbon dioxide can be used in treatments in medical centers with equipment (certified by the Ministry of Health) that supplies carbon dioxide, dosage and timing being controlled by the doctor.
How it works
Carboxytherapy works on:
Skin, which becomes more toned, compact, bright. The general look of the skin is improved. This is a consequence of an increase blood flow, of tissue oxygenation, of the action on the fibroblast (the cell that produces hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastic fibers).
Fat: through a direct lipolytic effect (fat cells are broken down) and an indirect lipolytic effect due to increased oxygen in the tissues, carboxyherapy creates a reactivation of the cell metabolism (enzymes that help melt fat are reactivated)
Circulation: direct vasodilation, increases the speed of the blood flow and opens all the capillaries compressed by retention and fat cells. The effects of carboxytherapy: faster blood flow, more oxigenated tissues, reduced swelling.
Skin relaxation, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars will improve. Carboxytherapy provides hyper-oxygenation of tissues and leads to a metabolic reactivation in all skin layers by the induction of fibroblast to create the molecule of youth. Carboxyherapy can be defined as a real biostimulant treatment. Stretch-marks and scars will become less evident;
In cellulitis, or cellulitic syndrome, the main cause is the alteration/modification of the microcirculation tissue (stasis microangiopathy) followed by alteration of the same adipose tissue (adipocyte aggregation an fibrosis).Carboxyherapy inverts this process: blood flows faster, tissues are more oxigenated, better circulation and skin irregularities and edema are solved.
Adiposity localized on hips, abdomen, thigh and knees is also reduced. Carboxytherapy causes the rupture of the adipocyte membrane (cells that compose adipose tissue) reducing the volume of these body parts.
Carboxytherapy improves microcirculation and helps capillaries compressed by fat cells and water retention. It also makes those unsightly red lines on the skin less evident. It also stops the process of new capillaries being created.
Carboxytherapy reactivates circulation, helps ulcers to cicatrize and reduces varicose veins, it also represents a great help if surgery is not yet needed or after a saphenectomy operation.
