How does Carboxytherapy work?
Carboxytherapy targets localized fat, rather than large areas on the body, and it’s ideal for helping to remove fat around our legs, buttocks, back and stomach. Cellulite, fats are believed to cause, at least in part, due to poor blood-flow to the region. By injecting a small amount of CO2 gas into the fatty area, we are “tricking” the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2 that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation. These are then naturally ridded through your lymphatic system. When we injected via a specific technique, carbon dioxide gas is directly toxic to fat cells. The fat cells literally burst and are eliminated by the body.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends upon the severity of the problem being treated. Usually, six to twelve treatments spaced one week apart yields an excellent result.
Are there any side effects associated with carboxytherapy?
The only real possible side effect of carboxytherapy is the potential for a bruise at the injection site. Bruising is very common when treating the arms and legs, but it will subside in 3-4 days.
How long does a typical treatment session last?
The average carboxytherapy treatment takes approximately fifteen to thirty minutes to complete.
