Carboxytherapy was discovered in the French spas in the 1930’s when bathing in the pools of carbon dioxide rich waters was shown to speed wound healing.
Carboxytherapy as a cosmetic technique stimulates the metabolism of cells and improves their function. Carboxytherapy takes advantage of a physiological principle known as oxygen off-loading. Carboxytherapy works by increasing the blood to the cells. The receptors in the cells sense that carbon dioxide levels are high and attempt to compensate by dilating the blood vessels and increasing the blood circulation to get rid of the excess carbon dioxide.
This increase flow of blood means better collagen production in skin cells. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and younger looking. On the scalp, hair follicles are stimulated to grow more healthy hair. In regions of fat, a higher metabolism means that the fat is burned faster. It is a cosmetic technique that is used to tighten up skin, reduce scarring, reduce localized fat, and stimulate hair loss recovery.
