CarboxyTherapy

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.

FAQ

Is the treatment painful?
Carboxytherapy involves the use of a very small needle to introduce the gas into the target area. When used for superficial aesthetic treatments such as hair and skin restoration, this is generally a painless treatment for most.

Deeper treatments, for circulatory issues or fat deposits for example, can be uncomfortable for some. However, when performed under the supervision of a qualified doctor, you should have access to local anaesthetics and light sedation to ensure a comfortable experience.

What exactly is injected?
The only substance introduced into the body during carboxytherapy treatment is medical CO2. This is the exact same gas created as a waste product of metabolism in the body.

In some cases a local anaesthetic or sedative may be used before the treatment. This is purely for pain management, not for therapeutic effect.

How much does it cost?
The cost of Carboxytherapy treatments will depend on the type of treatment performed, the area to be treated, and the specific treatment plan for that client.

Basic treatments sessions for hair loss will generally cost €60.

This will also change if these treatments are performed alongside other adjunctive treatments such as PRF or PRP. This can be the case for many treatment plans.

How long do I have to wait to see results?
This depends on the type of treatment you have. Generally treatments for hair restoration can take some time to show visible results, as you must wait for the follicle to produce the new hair, and for that hair to grow to a length that is visible. This can take up to 6 months, or longer in some cases.

For circulatory or sensitivity issues, clients generally see results quicker than that.

Some clients can see results sooner, and some may need to wait a bit longer. This is because everyone can respond differently to these types of treatment.

How many treatments do I need?
With aesthetic treatments such as hair loss and skin restoration, it is important to understand that you are managing ongoing ageing conditions. Consequently, this can involve multiple treatments over the course of time, and can often depend on the use of other adjunctive treatments as well.

Therefore, a specific treatment plan is developed with each client during the initial consultation. This will indicate how many treatments are recommended for effective results.

Client Reviews

Grateful for excellent care and attention to my situation.

I have been suffering from phimosis for many years now and I always thought there would be no way to eradicate it. I stumbled across this clinic on the internet and decided to make a consultation with Dr. Sam.

I was apprehensive prior to my consultation because of my feeling of embarrassment but Dr. Sam possesses an approachable and extremely friendly manner that diminished any negative feeling I had. Dr. Sam talked me through the procedure of partial circumcision and gave me an operation date scheduled the week after my consultation.

The operation went perfectly and it was over before I knew it. Since then I have been recovering quickly with no issues arising. Dr. Sam has been consistently in contact with me regarding my recovery. This is something I greatly appreciate given the difficult nature of the situation, having Dr. Sam guide me through the motions has made the whole process so easy.

I’m now a little over a week since my surgery and my recovery is going perfectly. Dr. Sam is still in regular contact with me and any questions I’ve had have been answered quickly with great effect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sam to anyone struggling with a similar condition, I already feel like a new person. All I can say is I wish I did it sooner! I cannot stress how grateful I am of Dr. Sam’s constant care and attention to my situation.

Quick Resolution

I made contact with Dr. Sam due to a long standing phimosis problem I had. Within just 7 days of initial contact, this problem I have carried with me for many years appears to have been resolved with minimal fuss. I had a partial circumcision procedure carried out. Everything was clearly explained prior to the procedure and I honestly didn’t feel the slightest bit of pain during or after it. I am now almost 72hrs post procedure and everything is running smoothly so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Sam.

Long-Lasting Sculptra Treatments

I had my first Sculptra treatment to restore volume loss of my cheeks in 2009 with Dr. Sam – this lasted five years and I since had Sculptra again in 2014, 2017 and now again for different areas of my face – I love my Sculptra treatments and in combination with my regular chemical peels my age eludes many around me and I just love that feeling.

Carefully Considered Consultations

I have attended many many doctors for filler treatments regularly since I had my first filler treatment in 2007. I attended Dr. Sam for the first time in 2016 and he was the first doctor not to just inject a line or fold but actually thoroughly examined my face and explained to me why my ageing signs developed. He explained by treating the causes of the volume and bone loss of my face the treatments will last longer and the result better and this I can confirm is and was indeed the case – I love my filler treatments – I am much happier with my appearances and the treatments last much much longer.

Skin Care & Attention to Detail

I had my first Obagi Blue Peel in 2010 and I have been on the Obagi and ZO creams since. I cherish my visits to Dr. Sam and the attention to detail Zelda gives me for my skin care. I had various treatments done over the years and at least once a year I make sure to visit the Clinic to always look my very best.
