Carboxy Therapy is a non-invasive injection that helps to reduce extra stored fat around different parts of the body. By injecting carbon dioxide into one’s body, the circulation improves in the overall body and fat cells will be damaged. When the circulation improves, the body can more easily remove extra fat, ultimately helping your body to become more contoured and defined.
How Is Carboxytherapy Performed?
CDT is a non surgical technique where by CO2 is infiltrated into the subcutaneous fat via the smallest needle available (30G). From one injection point the carbon dioxide diffuses easily into adjacent tissues so you won’t feel like a pin cushion. Treatments take 15-20 minutes.
How Does Carboxytherapy Work?
Carboxy Therapy works in three complimentary ways. First, when injected into the subcutaneous fat CO2 mechanically breaks down the fat (lysis). Secondly, it produces a strong vasodilatory effect, increasing blood flow to the area which stimulates the metabolism of fat and remodelling of scar tissue. Finally, improved circulation means more oxygen and nutrients delivered to the skin stimulating the production of collagen which revitalizes the skin’s texture and firmness, and thus improving the appearance of cellulite.
Is Carboxytherapy Painful?
No. Often described as uncomfortable, yet 95% of patients find it tolerable enough to complete the required 10 session. As a result of the increased circulation, the treated area will be red and feel warmer for up to 20 minutes.
How Long Will The Benefits Last?
For cellulite, with monthly maintenance treatments, eating healthy and regular exercise, result will last indefinitely. If you are unable to keep up the maintenance sessions or healthy eating and exercise then the cellulite will begin to creep back on average in 5 to 6 months. It’s like going to the gym the more you go the better you will look the longer it will last. If you stay on top of it, 3 to 4 sessions will get you back to smoother firmer skin.
