It’s a non-surgical method, which consists in the therapeutic use of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) administered subcutaneously, through a 30G needle (similar to the one used for insulin). At the injection site the CO2 is easily spread to other tissues nearby, and keeps on doing its work. When CO2 penetrates in form of gas it produces a hyperdistension of the subcutaneous tissue, liberating bradikin, serotonin, histamine, and catecholamine, which stimulate the beta-adregenergic receptors, producing lypolisis (destruction of fat cells).
This oxygen permits metabolic reactions and produces a stimulation of the burning of fat. Results can be seen immediately, the tissue improves, the skin is smoother and the affected zones become thinner
This therapy is appropriate for:
- Located fat (helps reduce measures)
- Stretch marks
- Micro varicose veins
The carboxitherapy lasts 20 minutes and it has to be done each week during
at least 10 weeks, in order to keep the expected results.
