The Corboxiterapia involves applying localized microinjections CO2 using equipment specifically designed for this purpose, by controlling the gas flow rate, the dose administered and the injection time. The introduction of CO2 is performed subcutaneously, through a fine needle to which the gas arrives via a conduit from the computer.
The duration of a session carboxiterapia may take 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the patient and the treatment to be performed.
The applications of this therapy are very diverse, because we can make use of its benefits in the treatment of acne, in which the antiseptic properties of the gas are harnessed to fight infection, reduce inflammation of the facial skin and regenerate damaged skin by comedones (pimples and blemishes associated with acne).
Stretch marks are another problem that can attack through the carboxiterapia, since CO2 stimulates circulation and promotes the creation of collagen and elastin, softening the appearance thereof.
Carbon dioxide has also proven effective in reducing dark circles, especially if these are caused by stress or lack of sleep, and decreased hair loss, since it improves circulation to the scalp, providing strength to slowing hair and alopecia.
However, carboxitherapy has in reducing localized fat, cellulite and sagging most aesthetically application, since the results are most satisfactory.
New medical studies show the therapeutic effects of carbon dioxide in patients suffering from fibromyalgia, which is manifested by a significant decrease in the severity of symptoms especially, pain.
