Carbon dioxide is the gas that you exhale when you breathe. The gas is not useful to the body, which expels it. So, how does this help you? Well, it has been used since the early 1900s as a treatment to increase circulation to the extremities. When CO2 is introduced into a body area, it increases blood flow and circulation, so the gas moves to the lungs to be exhaled.
Carboxytherapy involves injecting medical-grade CO2 gas directly into the under-eye area, which immediately causes your body to increase the blood flow to flush away the CO2. This treatment has another impressive result: the increased blood flow delivers the nutrients your skin craves for a long term improvement in the appearance of under-eye bags.
Carboxy treats several conditions, including:
- Dark circles or bags under your eyes
- Cellulite (the injections restore blood flow and help your body metabolize the trapped pockets of fat in the skin)
- Stretch marks
It is painless, non-invasive, and it really works.
The treatment involves careful injections, which cause the under-eye skin to swell and become pink. The swelling then fades in the following ten minutes as the gas is absorbed into your system, and the treatment is complete. The total treatment time is about 30 minutes, and many patients seeing immediate improvement.
For most people, a treatment plan performed over six or more treatments spaced over several weeks produces the best result, as the therapy trains your circulatory system to increase regular blood flow to the under-eye area.
