Carboxytherapy is a form of rejuvenation treatment that is gaining lot of attention from the aesthetic world of skin treatment and care. Over the years, the use of botox has been in the headlines for curing wrinkles and helping patients look much younger. While botox, unlike carboxytherapy, is effective in skin rejuvenation, the procedure can sometimes be discomforting.
Carboxytherapy uses Cardon Dioxide for the procedure. As we grow old, the amount of oxygen supply to the skin is decreased tremendously, especially during the middle age period; that invariable cause the renewal process to slow down, so its ability to regenerate new and younger skin cells is not as it used to be. The procedure solves the problem by helping stimulate the renewal of skin cells by providing carbon dioxide beneath the skin surface.
The presence of Carbon Dioxide in adequate quantity signals to the area, tricks it into sensing the availability of oxygen. This causes the area to hasten the reproduction of new cells. The procedure is non surgical and is a great alternative to all those seeking more comfortable approaches to skin renewal and rejuvenation.
