Carboxytherapy consists in the therapeutic use of carbon dioxide (CO2) administered under the skin, where fat deposits are found. This innovative treatment has turned out to be one of the best treatments with which to combat cellulite, excess fat and corporal and/or facial aging.

The administration of CO2 in places where cellulite appears allows the recovery of the smoothness of skin by providing proper circulation. In this way, carboxytherapy augments the quantity and speed of the blood flow, diminishing the accumulation of liquid between cells and disintegrating the fat located the hypodermis. Additionally, the treatment stimulates local metabolism in a completely natural way by augmenting micro-circulation, eliminating toxins and activating the destruction of fatty tissue.

The Procedure

Carboxytherapy is a simple procedure that consists in the injection of pure CO2 within the subcutaneous layer of the skin using a very fine needle. Due to the great diffusive quality of liquid CO2, once it has penetrated the fatty tissue, it easily spreads to adjacent tissues. Once there, it exerts its positive effect on the blood flow and rapidly stimulates de local metabolism.

The experts on this therapy state that tangible results can be obtained during the first session. After this initial application, the skin of the treated area becomes visibly smoother, the quality of the tissue improves and the zone loses volume slightly.

The treatment usually takes around 12 to 15 sessions, each application taking around 30 to 40 minutes. Sessions can be done twice a week.

After The Treatment

Unlike other treatments (like reductive massages, creams and gels), the results of carboxytherapy are long lasting. These are maintained for 5 to 6 months during which you only need to repeat sessions 3 to 5 times.

The results become completely evident after the fifth session: you will notice your skin looking shinier and smoother. Between the eighth and tenth session, you will feel your subcutaneous tissue getting firmer and slimmer.

Risks

As with any type of cosmetic treatment, complications are unusual but they sometimes do happen. However, they are usually minor and can be reduced by following your doctor’s directions precisely before and after the procedure.

The secondary effects of carboxytherapy are extremely mild, always localized on the area of treatment. You may experience slight pain, minor bruising and a slight burning sensation. In women, the treatment has been known to alter the date of menstruation by a few days.

Edward Patterson wasn’t always the fit, healthy guy he is now. After years spent fighting the battle of the bulge, brought on he admits by a bad attitude to food and exercise, he finally saw the light. The beckoning light by the side of those pearly white gates that is. A close up encounter with heart disease and diabetes was enough to make him decide it was time to stop simply writing about health and fitness, and start practicing all the things he was writing about.
