Is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves the injection of carbon dioxide gas into the skin. This treatment has been used for over a century to treat a variety of medical conditions, including poor circulation, arthritis, and wound healing.
In recent years, carboxytherapy has gained popularity as a cosmetic treatment to address skin concerns such as cellulite, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
The carbon dioxide gas injected into the skin works by increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the area, which in turn helps to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. The procedure is minimally invasive and has little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for those who want to improve the appearance of their skin without surgery.
