What Is Carboxytherapy? 10 Things to Know
Carboxytherapy does it all when it comes to correcting skin irregularities, reducing stubborn fat deposits, and treating some medical conditions. The best part is that you don’t have to undergo complicated surgery or have any downtime to experience the potent benefits. At CO2 Lift, we offer the most innovative take on this carbon dioxide treatment.
What Is Carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy, or carbon dioxide therapy, is a non-surgical treatment for fat removal and a variety of skin concerns and medical conditions. During treatment, gaseous carbon dioxide (CO2) is either injected into the skin or applied topically with our oxygen face mask and CO2LIFT.
How Does Carboxytherapy Work?
The body rejects the presence of CO2 and interprets it as a lack of oxygen. Blood flows to the area to deliver a powerful oxygen boost and promote healing and tissue regeneration to combat the perceived deficiency. The process creates better blood circulation, the formation of new blood vessels, and improved metabolism while stimulating the production of the growth factors collagen and elastin for total skin rejuvenation.
Ten Things to Know About Carboxytherapy
Every moment of your life, your body is inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide. Many people think of carbon dioxide as a waste product without understanding the deeply therapeutic benefits as a treatment.
If you are new to the incredible healing benefits of carboxytherapy, there’s much you need to know about what it’s all about and what it can do. Below we look at the top ten things to know about carbon dioxide treatment.
1. It Has Successfully Treated Patients for Nearly a Century
This treatment has a long history of helping patients. It was first used in the Royal Spas of France in the 1930s for treating patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease with much success. Since 1932, specialists have discovered new ways to use this treatment to enhance the skin’s appearance, remove fat, and ease symptoms of some medical conditions.
2. It Improves a Variety of Skin Conditions
- Accelerates healing after chemical peels and laser treatments
- Brightens skin tone and creates a youthful glow

3. It’s Massively Hydrating
This miracle treatment delivers powerful hydration to your skin. A study by Biometrix found skin hydration in some clients to improve by 117% after just one treatment. These fantastic results remained for three weeks on average. For maximum skin plumping and moisturizing benefits, seek treatment every two to three weeks.
4. It Can Remove Fat in Most Body Regions
This treatment can do what diet and exercise cannot. Stubborn fat, or subcutaneous fat, rests over the muscles and under the skin. Most of the time, it does not respond to healthy living. Nothing is more frustrating than clocking endless hours at the gym only to come home day after day with the same physique. When you’ve tried everything else, carboxytherapy promises to eliminate uncooperative fat in any of the following regions:
- Pelvic area
5. It Can Treat Medical Conditions
This treatment helps in the cosmetic realm, but it is also clinically indicated to treat several medical conditions for men and women. Some medical conditions it helps include:
- Alopecia (hair loss caused by poor circulation)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Raynaud’s syndrome
6. It’s Safe, Effective, and Pain-free
Safety is paramount to the success of any treatment, and this method is among the safest on the market today. You’d be hard-pressed to find another low-risk treatment that offers the same powerful results with painless application.
7. Treatment Times Are Fast, and There’s No Downtime
To reap the benefits of treatment, you only need to reserve between fifteen and thirty minutes per session. Even better, there’s no downtime associated with treatment. You can return to your regular activities immediately following the therapy.
8. It’s Available in Injectable and Topical Forms
For the needle-averse, we offer innovative topical carbon dioxide products that do not cause any discomfort when used. Traditionally, this CO2 treatment enters the body through injections. However, we’ve revolutionized the industry by designing an oxygen face mask and CO2LIFT for the same beautiful results with no poking.
9. It’s Cheaper Than Surgery Without the Risks
Even with multiple sessions, carbon dioxide treatment is substantially cheaper than surgical procedures. Finances aside, opting for a non-invasive treatment eliminates all the risks associated with an operation. Many clients find the pros far outweigh the cons with no incisions, anesthesia risks, or high surgical costs.
10. Results are Immediately Visible
You don’t have to wait to see many of the stunning results offered by carbon dioxide treatment, and they only improve with time. The CO2LIFT gel masks offer immediate localized anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin on the face and body for an instant, pain-free transformation.
