What is carboxytherapy?
Used as a healing body treatment for more than 100 years, carboxytherapy originated in France for people who needed improved circulation to help with a narrowing of the arteries. Further research found that the therapy effectively reversed the aging process by improving circulation. It also works synergistically with the body to shrink fat cells, stimulate collagen, and break down scar tissue, all by using the body’s natural functions.
During treatment at the Wellpath, Dr. Heskett injects carbon dioxide (CO2) just underneath the skin at predetermined treatment areas. The CO2 spreads to surrounding tissue, tricking the body to direct more oxygenated blood to the areas.
The result is improved circulation, enhanced skin appearance, and better skin elasticity. The CO2 also helps destroy fat cells, which your lymphatic system then eliminates from your body.
What skin complaints does carboxytherapy address?
Carboxytherapy successfully treats issues that stem from poor circulation, including:
- Stubborn fat deposits
- Stretch marks and scars
- Loose skin and wrinkles
- Under-eye circles
- Hair loss
- Residual fat deposits and scarring that remain after treatments like liposuction, Cellulaze, and CoolSculpting®
Because carboxytherapy triggers your body to heal and repair, your results always look natural. Over time, your body becomes healthier and more vital.
How many treatments of carboxytherapy do I need to see results?
You benefit from a series of sessions performed over the course of several months. Each session lasts just 15-20 minutes and requires no downtime afterward. You need to refrain from swimming or soaking in a tub for 24 hours after treatment.
Dr. Heskett develops a customized treatment plan for you depending on your skin concerns and goals. Depending on the problem treated, maintenance sessions may be necessary.
Improvement of stretch marks is permanent as long as the skin does not undergo excessive stretching after the treatments.
There may be some discomfort during the procedure, but the sessions are brief, and there is no residual sensation once the session is complete.
