Carboxytherapy is a minimally invasive technique that uses carbon dioxide gas for therapeutic and aesthetic purposes. This treatment is one of the best alternatives to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and improve it aesthetically.
The carboxytherapy procedure involves injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) under the skin. When this substance is injected, the brain detects that there is an oxygen deficiency somewhere in the body, and responds by immediately sending a rush of blood to that area. This stream is not only rich in oxygen, but in all the nutrients that come with blood. Therefore the process aids wound healing and tissue regeneration, increases skin elasticity in cases of sagging skin and slows down facial ageing.
Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas in the body and therefore cannot cause any allergic or unwanted reactions and will not remain for long. It is non-allergenic and non-toxic in low concentrations. It is therefore a 100% safe treatment.
More and more people are choosing to use carboxytherapy to rejuvenate their appearance. Below we will see the most important characteristics of this treatment.
The benefits of Carboxitherapy Facial for the skin are multiple. Among others, we highlight the following:
In addition, there is an increased influx of immune-regulating cells in the treated area. The skin becomes more resistant to free radical damage that causes skin ageing and skin cancer. It will immediately look healthier, plumper and brighter. Marks and fine lines are also reduced.
Over time, carboxytherapy also increases collagen production, which increases skin firmness. It is therefore a safe and clinically proven method to rejuvenate and restore, as well as to recondition the skin and treat sagging skin due to ageing and sun damage.
To be eligible for the Carboxytherapy Facial treatment, you must meet a series of criteria such as the following:
The areas and problems to be addressed include the following:
The treatment lasts from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
The cost of the treatment is determined after a consultation at our Clínica Rigo. It also depends on the nature of the skin problem, the size of the target area and the number of treatment sessions required.
Immediately after treatment, there may be some redness and swelling of the skin, with some tenderness which is expected to settle over a period of days. Bruising may occur, depending on the area treated.
The first results are visible immediately after treatment. Smaller pores and wrinkles, brighter skin, less pigmentation spots, the skin becomes more elastic and firmer.
Non-invasive carboxytherapy enhances the regenerative processes in the deeper layers of the skin, so all the positive effects appear on the skin within a few weeks.
Carboxytherapy safely treats all skin types without pain or downtime. Years can be erased from the face and it is one of the most effective methods of achieving significant aesthetic improvement within 2-6 months, when the effects of collagen stimulation and remodelling become evident.
Normal activities can be resumed the same day. Although it is recommended that excessive heat is avoided for about two weeks afterwards (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas) and that the area is not immersed in water for 6 hours after treatment. Some bruising of the area is possible, so please be aware of this if you plan to travel or go on special days.
A minimum of 5 to 20 sessions at intervals of 2 per week are necessary. Everything depends on the previous diagnosis of each patient, as a personalised treatment is always offered to achieve satisfactory results.
At Clínica Rigo we offer the necessary service with the most cutting-edge technology on the market. We believe in innovation to offer the best treatments to our patients.
