Carboxytherapy is a procedure that involves the therapeutic use of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. It has been used in various fields, including dermatology and aesthetic medicine, for the treatment of different conditions.
In carboxytherapy, small amounts of medical-grade carbon dioxide gas are injected into the targeted areas of the body. The gas injection can be done through a thin needle or via specialized devices. The carbon dioxide gas is believed to cause several effects, including:
- Improved blood circulation: The injection of CO2 gas can help dilate blood vessels, leading to increased blood flow to the treated area. This enhanced circulation is thought to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, promoting healing and rejuvenation.
- Increased collagen production: Carboxytherapy is believed to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain the structure and elasticity of the skin. By promoting collagen synthesis, carboxytherapy may help improve skin texture, tone, and firmness.
- Improved lymphatic drainage: The injection of CO2 gas may enhance lymphatic drainage, which can aid in the removal of toxins and metabolic waste products from the treated area.

How does it work?
During a carboxytherapy session, medical-grade carbon dioxide gas is injected into the subcutaneous tissue of the skin using a fine needle or cannula. The gas is delivered at a controlled and precise flow rate. The injection of CO2 gas is believed to have several effects on the body:
- Vasodilation: CO2 gas can promote vasodilation, which means it widens blood vessels. This can enhance blood circulation and oxygen delivery to the treated area.
- Increased Blood Flow: Improved blood flow helps remove waste products and toxins, nourishes the skin, and supports tissue regeneration.
- Stimulation of Collagen and Elastic Fibers: Carboxytherapy is thought to stimulate the production of collagen and elastic fibers, which can lead to skin tightening and improved elasticity.
