The use of carbon dioxide for therapeutic purposes began in France in the 1930s at the Royat spa resort. Thanks to its waters rich in carbon dioxide, these spas specialized in the therapeutic treatment of peripheral, organic and functional arteriopathies and angiopathies.
In the 80’s, following the design of a device that administered pure carbon dioxide by means of subcutaneous injections, the term carboxitherapy was coined and its use became common in the medical clinic.
CO2 FOR BEAUTY AND HEALTH
FROM THE SPA TO THE MEDICAL CENTRE
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
Carboxitherapy is a painless therapeutic system recognised as effective by scientific research, both in aesthetic and functional medicine, which has specific protocols for numerous applications.
CELLULITE AND LOCALISED ADIPOSITIES
PRE AND POST LIPOSUCTION
CHRONIC VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY
Carboxytherapy is a medical technique that administers carbon dioxide gas (CO2) subcutaneously or intradermally through localised microinjections with very fine 30G needles.
Our body naturally produces carbon dioxide; it is not toxic and is disposed of physiologically within 5 to 10 minutes
MECHANISMS OF ACTION
CO2 blown into the dermis or subcutaneous tissue spreads in the intercellular spaces where it is buffered with H2O in carbonic acid H2CO3.
In turn, the carbon dioxide is broken down into H+ hydrogen ions and HCO3 bicarbonate anions which are then eliminated through the kidneys.
Increased blood flow is mainly responsible for the effect of carbon dioxide on tissues.
