What Is Carboxytherapy And How Does It Work?
Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars are believed to caused, at least in part, due to poor blood-flow to the region.
By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are “tricking” the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation. Carboxytherapy is used for the treatment of dark under-eye circles, stretch-marks, cellulite reduction, and non-surgical fat sculpting on the face and the body.
Carboxytherapy – Cellulite And Fat Reduction
Cellulite is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue that manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity, often on the pelvic region (specifically the buttocks), lower limbs, and abdomen. Cellulite occurs in most postpubescent females. A review gives a prevalence of 85–98% of women, indicating that it is physiological rather than pathological. It can result from a complex combination of factors ranging from hormones to heredity.
The causes of cellulite include changes in metabolism, physiology, diet and exercise habits, obesity, sex-specific dimorphic skin architecture, alteration of connective tissue structure, hormonal factors, genetic factors, the microcirculatory system, the extracellular matrix, and subtle inflammatory alterations.
Carboxytherapy causes the formation of new collagen and subsequently thickens the skin to improve the appearance of the cellulite by rebuilding the collagen matrix. When injected via a specific technique, carbon dioxide gas is directly toxic to fat cells. The fat cells literally burst and are eliminated by the body.
Lipo Massage by Endermologie
Endermologie is a non-surgical treatment used as a toning therapy for cellulite and post operative liposuction. To date, no other method has been found to reliably and consistently reduce the appearance of cellulite as effectively as lipomassage. To achieve visible results, it is recommended at a patient receive 16 treatments (35 minutes each). Treatments can be received every day for the first 2 weeks, followed by 2-3 times a week afterwords. To maintain the achieved results, it is recommended to come back for a treatment every 4-5 weeks.
Weight changes, pregnancy, or age the skin gradually loses its firmness and its flexibility. Although sagging skin affects the entire body, some areas are more sensitive to it, including the inner thighs, the tummy, and the arms. This phenomenon is explained by the slower production of elastin and collagen fibers by the fibroblasts. The skin then loses its substance, and signs of aging appear. Lipomassage Rolls combined with sequential stimulations act at the core of the fibroblast and activate the production of these essential support fibers (collagen and elastin). The results, your skin will become visibly firmer and toned.
