Carboxytherapy - what you need to know?


Carboxytherapy is a breakthrough in aesthetic medicine due to a wide range of applications. What's more, this treatment is highly effective and minimally invasive. In this case, a specialist injects appropriate doses of carbon dioxide intradermally or subcutaneously through a special device.

Thanks to this, the flow of blood and nutrients is accelerated. In addition, thanks to carboxytherapy, microcirculation is improved and the body's cells are stimulated to regenerate.

What happens in the body during carboxytherapy?

After application of carbon dioxide, blood vessels dilate immediately and blood pressure increases. Then the injected substance reacts with water molecules. As a result, it creates a molecule of carbonic acid, which contributes to lowering the pH of the tissue.

As a result of these processes, the so-called Bohr effect is activated. Lower pH values ​​are manifested by weaker bonds between hemoglobin and oxygen. Therefore, the carboxytherapy treatment leads to an increased release of oxygen from hemoglobin.

In addition, at pH 6.5 and lower, collagen fibers become more flexible. Chemical reactions make the pH alkaline and ultimately result in an anesthetic and spasmolytic effect.

What's more, the tension of the arterial muscles and capillaries is also reduced, while the skin temperature increases by 1 degree Celsius. Then, the oxidation of fats from fat cells is intensified.
