What is Carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is the new, simple and proven technique that can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite by improving local tissue metabolism and perfusion. Treatments are rapid, comfortable and effective for a high percentage of patients.
How is Carboxytherapy performed?
It is a non surgical method. Carboxy dioxide (CO2)is infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissue through a tiny 30G needle (0.3 mm in diameter). From the injection point. the carbon dioxide diffuses easily into adjacent tissues.
How does the carbon dioxide work?
Carboxytherapy works in two complimentary ways. Firstly, and quite simply, carbon dioxide mechanically kills fat cells. Secondly, it also has a strong vasodilatory effect (causes dilatation of blood vessels) on the capillaries in the area.
Is it painful?
No. Some patients can experience a light tingling sensation near the injection site.
How many sessions are necessary?
Between 10-20 sessions are necessary to eliminate cellulite. 1-2 session per week will be enough. Each session lasts between 10-15 minutes.
