What is Carboxytherapy?Skin changes are a normal part of the collagen loss and dehydration that happens with age, but millions of Americans are taking aging into their own hands.
The global anti-aging market is exploding year over year, predicted to grow to 14.22 billion by 2027.
At the height of that market is carboxytherapy, a treatment that has been around since the 1930s, though the method of delivery has improved since then, with a gel delivery system, CO2Lift!
Carboxytherapy uses carbon dioxide to stimulate blood and lymph circulation to the area being treated and improve circulation, elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles.
The old way to administer carboxytherapy is by subdermal injection of CO2 with a thin high-gauge needle. This application causes little pain and discomfort and leaves minor bruising.
The Problem with CO2 InjectionsInjectable CO2 is still the primary way many providers use carboxytherapy today, but it has a few problems:
- Many clients don’t want an injectable treatment,
- It must be administered in the office, and
- It causes visible bruising, especially when used on the arms and legs
- It causes no bruising or other side effects
- It can be used at home or in the office
- It’s completely injection-free
