Collagen and elastin are the main proteins of the skin, which are responsible for its elasticity and hydration. From their content, it depends on how the skin looks young and fresh. Up to 30 years, collagen and elastin form rapidly, replacing damaged protein. With age, metabolic processes slow down and skin gets less oxygen. As a result, the synthesis of collagen and elastin decreases, and the “old” protein accumulates. The skin becomes flabby and dry, so wrinkles appear. Carboxytherapy – is the introduction of medical carbon dioxide into the skin.
Under the influence of injected CO2:
-waste products and toxins are excreted from the body;
-enrichment with oxygen occurs;
-fat cells are destroyed;
-improves blood circulation in the skin;
-regeneration of tissues is activated;
-elastin and collagen formation is accelerated.
Methods of Carboxytherapy
Carboxytherapy is carried out by 2 methods:
When injecting, gas injections are used. The procedure is painful, especially if the skin is sensitive and thin. The non-injection method is painless and does not break the integrity of the skin due to the use of special masks and gels containing medical carbon dioxide. This method is very popular.
Advantages of carboxytherapy
Any cosmetic procedure has positive and negative sides.
Advantages of carboxytherapy:
– does not injure skin;
– suitable for all skin types and ages;
– effectively regenerates collagen fibres;
– risk of infection is minimal;
– an absence of allergic reactions.
If we consider non-invasive carboxytherapy, then it has no negative sides.
Indications for Carboxytherapy
Masks and gels with medical carbon dioxide eliminate the following skin defects:
– premature ageing and withering of the skin;
– dry skin;
– dark circles under the eyes;
– mimic and age wrinkles;
– traces of burns, scars, stretch marks;
– double chin;
– dark pigment spots;
– vascular asterisks;
