Rejuvenate Spa NY in the Bronx offers natural treatments to help you improve your health and appearance, and carboxytherapy is no exception. Carboxytherapy uses carbon dioxide to improve circulation for a host of eye-pleasing results.
Carboxytherapy arose from the work of Danish physicist Christian Bohr who observed that carbon dioxide triggers increased circulation to boost oxygen levels (circa 1904). The application of carboxytherapy to esthetics came after the Japanese used carbon dioxide to facilitate wound healing of burn victims. In addition to faster recovery, the patients who received carboxytherapy also noticed the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and improved skin texture.
The Carboxytherapy Treatment Process
Carboxytherapy involves introducing carbon dioxide (CO2) at the subcutaneous level—just below the surface of the skin—using a fine needle. When CO2 is in high concentrations, blood flow to that area increases to restore the CO2-O2 balance. In other words, carboxytherapy “tricks” the body into increasing circulation to the treated area.
What To Expect During Carboxytherapy Treatment
Carboxytherapy uses a number of injections, which may cause a degree of local discomfort. However, any stinging or pain quickly dissipates. Results are seen immediately, but for the most noticeable effects, full treatment should include four to six sessions, each scheduled a month apart.
The Benefits Of Carboxytherapy
Because carboxytherapy stimulates circulation in the treatment area, you can expect results that arise from improved blood flow and oxygenation, including:
- Increased metabolism/fat burn, cellulite reduction
- Improved skin tone and texture—firmer skin, diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Increased collagen production
- Diminished scars and stretch marks
- Carboxytherapy is gentle enough to treat even the most delicate skin, making it an excellent treatment for dark under-eye circles
Carboxytherapy Preparations And Contraindications
Carboxytherapy stimulates circulation, so it may not be suitable for people with cardiovascular issues, including hypertension (high blood pressure). Please tell your esthetician about any medical conditions or concerns during your free consultation. If you are a good candidate for carboxytherapy, you will receive your first treatment the same day.
