In recent years many people have forgone laser surgery or invasive implants to treat dark circles under the eyes or stretch marks at the belly and underarms in favor of a new and effective alternative: carboxytherapy
What is carboxytherapy? Carboxytherapy is simply carbon dioxide that is injected slightly under the skin to widen blood vessels and bring oxygen and nutrients to the area. The therapy increases blood flow to areas of skin that are stagnated, replacing the oxygen with CO2 almost immediately. By facilitating increased oxygen level in the body, carboxytherapy can be used to treat a wide range of aesthetic issues including, but not limited to:
- Loose skin
- Stretch marks
- Dark eye circles
- Lymph drainage
More patients are preferring natural treatments, and the safe injection of carbon dioxide to treat aesthetic issues than other more traditional invasive fat reductions and dark circle treatments.
At Gentle Touch in Orange County our carboxytherapy therapy avoids long downtimes, scarring and other safety hazards with regard to fat reduction, cellulite, dark circles under the eyes, and more.
Carboxytherapy can erase the broad and visible stretch marks and dark bags under the eyes. It also helps removing local deposits of fat, particularly dewlaps.
The therapy we offer at our Newport Beach site uses special devices that have strict control over the pressure and the quantity of the carbon dioxide injected into the body during treatment.
While the procedure is going on, patient may feel a mild pressure at the treatment site. The treated area of your body will turn slightly red, as a result of increased oxygen and blood flow.
More reasons behind the success of carboxytherapy, as offered by Gentle Touch in Orange County are:
- The therapy has no long-lasting side-effects.
- Treatment sessions are quick and hardly take longer than 20 minutes to half an hour.
- There’s no turnaround time; you can get back to your usual lifestyle immediately after a session.
- Very affordable pricing.
Patient Safety: A Warning Against Unlicensed Clinics and Ill-Trained Technicians
Many carboxytherapy clinics and practitioners claim to perform carboxytherapy according to the highest surgical and cosmetic standards, but are in reality technically incompetent to do so. “There are many technicians who claim to have knowledge of carboxytherapy best practices, but only have a background in cosmetology, which does not equip you with nearly the amount of training and knowledge required to perform substantive carboxytherapy on patients,” states Dr. Amir Yazdan of Modena Hair Institute.
Professional doctors like Dr. Yazdan own a broad and deep understanding of different skin types and hair growth patterns, as well as decades of experience managing intricate cosmetic and surgical systems. Patients who do not partner with an experienced specialist risk suffering botched procedures, skin burns and hyperpigmentation.
