What is Carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is a sophisticated, non-surgical, injectable procedure with a fine needle to place carbon dioxide gas directly into the subcutaneous tissue (fat cells). With carbon dioxide, the body sends additional blood to the area, improving circulation and rejuvenating the tissue. Both men and women can benefit from carboxytherapy, which can safely treat all skin types without significant pain.
Is Carboxytherapy Safe?
Carboxytherapy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure when performed with the correct protocols and a pre-treatment consultation. That’s because carbon dioxide is a natural, non-toxic byproduct of the body, even at elevated doses.
If you have any questions or concerns, please be sure to bring them up to your Ava MD provider. We work with you to create a treatment plan specific to your own unique concerns and problem areas so you can get the results you’re looking for.
How Does Carboxytherapy Work?
During treatment, carbon dioxide gas is injected directly into fat cells, destroying it, which prompts your body to eliminate it. This repairs your skin’s elasticity, improves circulation, and improves its appearance because it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, completely rejuvenating the treatment area.
Patients may experience some redness, irritation, and itchiness during the procedure. After treatment, the excess gas is quickly absorbed into the skin, which returns to normal immediately after. This is a clinically proven method to rejuvenate, restore, and recondition the skin.
What Does Carboxytherapy Treat?
Carbon dioxide is a natural constituent of our own bodies; we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Studies have demonstrated carboxytherapy’s edge in improving skin elasticity and improving circulation. Because it increases blood flow to the treatment area, it also improves collagen formation in the skin, leaving you with a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Carboxytherapy uses the power of CO2 to treat:
- Stretch marks
- Dark circles
- Localized fat reduction
- Wrinkle reduction
- Skin tightening
- Loose skin
- Necklines reduction
- Acne scarring
- Burn scars
- Facial and neck wrinkle reduction
- Alopecia and hair thinning
- Vulvo-vaginal rejuvenation
The treatment takes about 10-15 minutes. Some patients may experience some discomfort, though the development of Venusian Carboxytherapy makes the treatment extremely tolerable. A series of 2-6 treatments spaced one week apart is all that is required to achieve a great result.
Who is a Candidate for Venusian Carboxytherapy?
Virtually any patient in their thirties or above can be a candidate. Ideal candidates will be in generally good health without skin disease or active infection. Carboxytherapy is not approved for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Please tell your Ava MD provider about any medical conditions or concerns during your free consultation. If you are a good candidate for carboxytherapy.
What to Expect From Your Venusian Carboxytherapy Appointment at Ava MD
Your Ava MD provider will assess your skin and prep the area for the treatment. The process begins with a simple injection of CO2 gas in the treatment area. Gas is run through the needle by a tank directly into the body, promoting blood flow. The increased blood flow then removes the CO2, replacing it with healthy oxygen, which stimulates the body’s natural healing faculties.
Results You Can Expect from Venusian Carboxytherapy
Carboxytherapy is designed to provide immediate results. After treatment, patients may notice some swelling and redness, which is expected to subside. Final results are expected to appear over the following days and weeks as the body creates new collagen, diminishing the appearance of uneven texture and leaving you with brighter, smoother skin. Your Ava MD provider may also recommend multiple sessions depending on your concerns.
