Scar Resurfacing and Remodelling
Scar Resurfacing and Remodelling (Smoother and Finer Skin)
Carboxytherapy is a medical procedure in which carbon-dioxide is used for therapeutic purposes. Sterile medical CO2 gas is injected into the skin or fatty tissue and since it is a natural gas created by our body during usual metabolic processes, there is no potential for allergies. The application is performed by a special device, called SkinSelf, with strict control of the pressure and amount of gas applied during the treatment. The patient can feel a mild pressure and immediately after the treatment the treated area remains mildly red due to increased blood and oxygen flow. During carboxytherapy, vascular endothelial growth factors are concentrated, thus, new microcirculation is created, tissue lymph drainage is increased, collagen production is increased. Its application into the fatty tissue, breaks down and melts fat cells. Common indications for carboxytherapy are relaxed and thinned skin, visible and broad stretch marks, dark bags under the eyes, localized fatty deposits, especially dewlaps and bags under the eyes.
Dark eye bags can be a consequence of bad circulation or genetic predisposition. the carboxytherapy treatment, the deposited oxygen whitens the skin and the increased microcirculation makes this effect long-lasting. If at the same the fatty deposit in the dark bags under the eyes is treated, the gas is applied into the skin and under it into the fatty tissue. This is how the effect is achieved when it comes to skin quality and reduction in size of deposits under the eyes. To maintain the effect it is necessary to repeat it once or twice a year.
