What is Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy consists in the intradermal injection of carbon dioxide (CO₂) into the tissues. The properties of this gas are multiple: it improves microcirculation, boosts local metabolism, and, in relation to fat, is lipolytic ("fat burning"). The body produces CO₂ naturally, at a rate of 200 ml per second. This amount may be ten times higher during exercise.

What is Carboxytherapy for?

The determinant for combating sagging skin is postulated by the Bohr effect, which translates to a supply of oxygen to tissue being treated with this gas. This increase of oxygenation favors the formation and replenishment of collagen and elastin, increasing tension of the dermis.
