Carboxytherapy is one of the most innovative techniques of cosmetic medicine, used to treat the structure of the dermis in a localised way: from adiposity to wrinkles to the treatment of more complex wounds like stretch marks. This methodology bases its effectiveness on a simple injection of CO2.
In his clinic in Rome, Prof. Basoccu performs subcutaneous insertion of carbon dioxide. This method, applied for the first time in the ’30s for the treatment of vasculopathy of the lower limbs, is now used by the study as an anti-aging technique and has yielded particularly appreciable-quality results.
What is carboxytherapy for?
Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle treatment
In recent times, carboxytherapy is used as an optimal antiaging and anti-wrinkle treatment, ideal for treating labial nose wrinkles, crow’s feet and to give tone to the neck, décolleté and to all those areas that have lost tone (including the oval of the face). There were also excellent improvements in the eye contour area, an extremely delicate area, but subject to a purple complexion and swelling. Through oxygenation of the tissues, the skin relaxes and improves microcirculation (the number one cause of the notorious dark circles).
In order to maintain good results, a minimum number of sessions are indispensable, for the first month we recommend one per week, thereafter, a maintenance session will be enough once a month. The treatment, if also associated with lymphatic drainage massages, offers excellent results.
Carboxytherapy is ideal in treating skin relaxations, blemishes such as cellulite and stretch marks by clearly improving capillary permeability and rejuvenating the appearance of the treated part. In fact, the human body naturally produces carbon dioxide: this is a technique considered safe, suitable for everyone and with immediate results, visible in a skin that appears smooth and healthy right from the first session.
Periodic carboxytherapy sessions are performed at the clinic to reduce localised adiposity, improve microcirculation, increase skin elasticity and consequently reduce skin laxity and dermal irregularities. It is then used to improve the effects of the various body-conturing methods and is also suitable for patients in the immediate post-operative phase of lipoaspiration, abdominoplasty, or lifting of the arms or thighs
