Overview of

Carboxytherapy

in Thailand

Carboxytherapy is a form of medical therapy that utilizes carbon dioxide gas (CO2) as a treatment modality. It is a non-invasive procedure that involves the injection of carbon dioxide gas into the subcutaneous tissue to promote the growth of new collagen fibers and improve circulation.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a natural byproduct of human metabolism, and every breath we take contains some amount of CO2. It is essential for life processes and plays a vital role in helping to regulate the acid-base balance of the body.

Carbon dioxide gas is safe and effective in increasing blood flow to the treated area. The human body can tolerate exposure to CO2 for a few minutes without harm, but high concentrations over long periods of time can cause death by asphyxiation.

Carboxytherapy uses this same principle to treat various conditions by injecting carbon dioxide into specific areas of the body to increase blood flow and oxygen supply. We are "tricking" the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide into the area, which forces the red blood cells to absorb all of the excess CO2 so that it can be emitted from the body during our next breath.

This results in an increase in circulation that helps restore elasticity and firmness in the skin tissue, reducing inflammation and promoting healing.

Goals of

Carboxytherapy

Treatment with carboxytherapy is effective in treating the following conditions:

Stretch marks: Stretch marks are a result of the dermis being torn. The dermis is the layer of skin beneath your epidermis or top layer. As you stretch, the elastic fibers that connect to your dermis are pulled and eventually break. This is what causes stretch marks. Carboxytherapy is an effective way to treat stretch marks because it regenerates collagen, which helps thicken your skin and improve its appearance.

Cellulite: The injection of carbon dioxide gas into fat cells can also cause the fat cells to burst, causing them to be expelled from the body. The skin becomes sagged with cellulite as subcutaneous fat protrudes under it. In numerous studies, carboxytherapy has been found to be both safe and effective in the treatment of cellulite.

Under-eye circles: Dark circles under the eyes are caused by poor circulation and vascular pooling in the under-eye area. By injecting the gas under the eyelid, this bluish pooling is diminished and replaced with a blush tone.

Alopecia: Poor circulation can also cause alopecia (hair loss). Carboxytherapy is an effective solution for this.

Pros and cons of

Carboxytherapy

Pros

  • Easy to perform, quick, and minimally invasive, the procedure does not involve downtime.
  • Carboxytherapy addresses persistent concerns like dark circles under the eyes, stretch marks, and cellulite that have few alternative effective treatments.

Cons

  • To obtain optimal results, all 10 sessions of treatment need to be completed by the patient.
  • Patients may experience mild discomfort due to increased circulation in the treated area for up to 20 minutes.

How it works:

Carboxytherapy

As far as administering carbon dioxide is concerned, several types of devices are available, with the basic features being a tank containing carbon dioxide connected to a flow controller, which regulates the rate of distribution to the patient.

After the gas exits from the flow regulator, it is passed through a filter attached to the end of a sterile tube, removing any impurities, before it is passed through a needle connected to the opposite end of the tube. After that, the pure gas will be injected through a tiny needle beneath the skin.

A relatively painless procedure is usually involved. Prior to injection, physicians apply numbing cream to the injection site. Although there is no pain, some people report experiencing some strange sensations right after the procedure.

Carboxytherapy is an outpatient procedure that takes between 15 and 30 minutes to conduct.

Risks & side effects of

Carboxytherapy

Possible risks and side effects include:

  • Potential and temporary bruising may occur on the treated area, but it will resolve on its own within a few days.
  • So far, there have been no reports of long-term side effects.
  • Patients with respiratory problems, especially Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and asthma, or patients with cardiac problems, may be restricted. In that case, physicians always verify that their patients do not have underlying health problems before prescribing this treatment.

FAQs:

Carboxytherapy

How does Carboxytherapy work?
Injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) into the skin causes it to diffuse into the tissues, which causes the blood vessels to dilate. Having bigger vessels means having more blood flow, leading to an influx of oxygen and nutrients that improve circulation in the treated area.

Fat cells explode when exposed to carbon dioxide, allowing more oxygen to enter the cell and reduce fluid buildup, so the skin produces more collagen and looks firmer, and younger.


How does Carboxytherapy work to eliminate stretch marks?
Injected carbon dioxide gases are hazardous to fat cells, which triggers the body to eliminate them after they burst.

What is the recommended number of treatments in order to achieve optimum results?
An average of 6-12 treatments are typically spaced apart by one week. For newly formed stretch marks, 1 treatment a week may be sufficient for 5-6 weeks. It may take 5-6 treatments to treat old stretch marks once a month.


When should I start Carboxytherapy?
A bit of firming and tightening around the eyes and jowl area can be effective on anyone in their 30s or above, but the younger the patient, the better the result. In eight out of ten cases, patients have noticeably improved skin laxity around their eyes after their first two treatments. They will also see improvements in their skin color, skin luminosity, and texture.


Is the procedure painful?
No. In spite of the procedure being uncomfortable, 95% of patients are able to tolerate it for the recommended 10 sessions. The treated region will be red and warmer for approximately 20 minutes as a result of the enhanced circulation.
