Is a regenerative treatment which uses Carbon Dioxide (CO2), the same gas that we naturally exhale, to trigger a series of healing responses in the body. Therefore, this is sometimes referred to as the ‘magic gas’. Carboxytherapy fools the body’s defence systems into thinking an injury or trauma has occurred. As a result of this, the natural response is something known as a healing cascade. This is where the area is flooded with blood, oxygen and healing cells to repair this ‘injury’ and remove the CO2. Consequently, this response also stimulates the release of growth factors. This leads to the growth and rejuvenation of tissue and cells in the target area. As this gas is a natural waste product of the body, and is simply a trigger for our own healing capabilities, carboxytherapy is known as a ‘green’ treatment.
What can it be used for?
Carboxytherapy was originally designed for scar repair. It works by reducing the appearance of scarring in the skin by remodelling the tissue and cells. As time and research have progressed, many other successful applications for this treatment were uncovered. In the realm of regenerative treatments, carboxytherapy is an excellent basic stimulation therapy. Furthermore, it can be used either as a stand-alone treatment, or in conjunction with other adjunctive therapies.
Currently, the treatment is commonly used for:
– Scar repair and reduction
– Hair loss, beard and eyebrow growth
– Skin rejuvenation
– Wrinkles and lines
– Fat spot-reduction
– Vaginal rejuvenation
– Erectile and male sensitivity disorders
– Peripheral circulatory disease
Carboxytherapy is known as a natural green treatment, and side effects are not currently noted or expected due to the nature of the therapy. However, a comprehensive consultation between you and the practitioner is vital before considering treatment. This will ensure that your particular case is suitable for regenerative procedures.
