Carboxy Therapy is a procedure that uses carbon dioxide and claims to get rid of stretch marks, cellulite and scars, as well as plumping the skin. Micro injections of carbon dioxide are injected just beneath the surface of the skin. This is supposed to stimulate circulation and collagen production, which improves the appearance of skin. Ageing causes capillaries to become dormant, which reduces blood circulation. This deprives cells of oxygen which stops the cells’ ability to regenerate. Injecting carbon dioxide makes your body think there is an oxygen deficit and it responds by increasing the blood flow. This leads to a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area, which results in cell restoration.
