Carboxytherapy is a non-invasive facial that can offer long lasting skin improvements. This innovative facial can provide our skin with what it naturally starts to lack with age. By the age of 30 oxygen levels in the skin can drop by 25% and by the age of 40 levels can drop by up to roughly 50%. As carbon dioxide is a gas naturally found in the body there is no risk of allergic reaction or any other unwanted reactions.
How does it work?
During a Carboxytherapy facial carbon dioxide is infused into the skin. The body responses by increasing blood flow to the area. The increase in blood flow and therefore increase in capillary activity means more oxygen and nutrients surge to the treatment area. This increase of oxygen and nutrients improves cell restoration and elastin production aiding skin regeneration and helps to combat the signs of skin aging, such as fine line and wrinkles, sagging skin and under-eye darkness giving a brighter, more toned and youthful appearance.
