Carboxytherapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that reconditions the skin by injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) dosages into the skin layers underneath the surface. This type of treatment addresses loose skin, cellulite, stubborn fat deposits, and stretch marks. It can be applied to various parts of the body, including facial areas as well. The concept of body carboxy is simple, triggering your body to react to an oxygen deficit to flood the affected area with nutrients and new cells for a rejuvenated result. It can also be used for slimming and contouring purposes.
What is the Function of CO2 Injections?
By delivering a dosage of CO2 to a specific layer of the skin, the cells in your body will respond accordingly. Oxygen is the fuel to our bodies. When the CO2 is injected underneath your skin, your body detects an oxygen deficit. Your body responds in kind by going into healing mode, sending the necessary nutrients and supplements to the affected area. This also stimulates the growth of new cells in the area, delivering a rejuvenated and more youthful texture and surface. By stimulating collagen cell production, body carboxy is an ideal solution to treat loose skin that is a result of aging.
How Can CO2 Injections Combat Cellulite?
Cellulite is a result of excess fat deposits penetrating the skin tissue and forming an uneven skin surface. Through regular exercise and dietary adjustments, the size of the fat cells in our bodies will decrease, reducing the effects of cellulite on the surface of our skin. However, stubborn fat deposits may still remain. Body carboxy will deliver a CO2 dosage to these fat cells, causing them to break down in size. Although these fat cells will not be removed, their size can become notably smaller, reducing the visible effect of cellulite.
The structure of our skin is a determining factor to the appearance and elasticity of our skin. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity because of a reduced quantity of collagen and elastin. By triggering the body to produce new cells through carboxytherapy, the skin’s structure will be reinforced in the treated area. Therefore, you can expect firmer and healthier skin texture and structure from this type of treatment.
