What is Carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic procedure which has been proven to be effective in minimising the appearance of undereye circles, wrinkles and scars. Originally a medical treatment, carboxytherapy has been used since the beginning of the 20th century to treat burn wounds and ulcers. It has long been known to assist with the skin’s natural healing process. Today, it is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure, used to create younger-looking, smoother, firmer and brighter skin.
Small doses of carbon dioxide, CO2, are injected into the subcutaneous layers of the skin. The body understands this sudden surge in CO2 as a deficiency in oxygen and floods the area with blood. This increase in circulation to the area flushes it with oxygen and other nutrients thus jumpstarting the rejuvenation process. Over time this results in the heightened production of collagen fibres, blood vessels and skin cells. The additional collagen has a firming effect on the skin and new blood vessels result in better circulation, improved lymph drainage and new cell growth.

Fat Reduction

Injecting the CO2 deep into the cell tissue break ups up fat cells which are then removed via the body’s natural elimination process. Carboxytherapy works especially well to treat hard-to-reach pockets of fat, under the chin or around the hips.

Stretch Marks and Other Scars

Stretch marks are a form of scarring caused by skin tearing as a result of rapid weight gain. Injecting CO2 into the scar tissue results in the production of collagen, making the scarring less visible. Results are seen in the case of most stretchmarks, but is best used to treat new ones. Carboxytherapy can also be used to treat other scars, such as those caused by acne, surgery or burns.


Carboxytherapy has been shown to reduce significantly improve skin texture of cellulite-affected areas. It assist the skin with creating more collagen fibre, thus improving skin firmness. The treatment also increases circulation and lymph drainage which results in smoother, younger-looking skin.

Skin Firming and Rejuvenation

By increasing collagen production carboxytherapy can also help in firming up wrinkles and rejuvenating tired-looking skin. Some of the skin laxity issues carboxytherapy can help treat include:
  • Crows Feet
  • Laugh Lines
  • Frown Lines
  • Double Chin
  • Saggy Jowls
  • Lip Wrinkles
Initially a course of 6 sessions, one each week, is required and then a monthly session to maintain the youthful appearance of the skin, depending on the area of treatment.
Results are often visible after the 4th or 5th session, depending on the affected area. However, it can take up to 6 months to notice a significant change.The reason for this is that the body takes time to lay down the collagen fibres and create a new capillary system in the affected area. Monthly maintenance is essential.
Each carboxytherapy session takes between 15 - 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the affected area. This makes it the perfect lunch break procedure.
Carboxytherapy is virtually painless. The only sensations you will feel include a slight sting and a throbbing sensation that will last for just a few minutes.
After treatment, the area will be slightly red and inflamed body flushes the area with blood and oxygen. Some minor bruising might also form. Both the inflammation and the bruising should disappear within 24 hours.
