Carbossi, also known as Carbon Dioxide Therapy (CDT), is a simple and proven technique that can dramatically rejuvenate the skin and underlying tissue structure. Treatments are safe, rapid, and highly effective. It can be used to rejuvenate areas such as the face, neck, and chest by stimulating your own collagen and elastin production in the treated tissues, which gives a youthful glow back to the skin.
A non-surgical technique, Carbossi is a treatment in which carbon dioxide gas is injected under the skin with a fine needle. The gas separates the layers of the skin and the body the repairs that separation with elastin and collagen. The carbon dioxide also stimulates oxygen to be delivered to the area, which rejuvenates the skin. Oxygen, which floods to the area in response, replaces the carbon dioxide, and the carbon dioxide is taken to the lungs where it is exhaled.
Carbossi can be used to minimize scars and stretch marks. As we age, the delicate skin under our eyes and other sun-exposed areas can become thin and crepe, however, Carbossi treatments can be safely used to build collagen and healthy skin in those areas. It can also be used to speed wound healing. Treatments may be done as often as once a week depending on the area being treated.
The risks and potential complications with Carbossi are minimal. The gas is non-toxic, as it is a natural by-product of all cellular functions. Bruising if any is usually confined to the injection point. Discomfort is minimal and any swelling is resolved in minutes as the gas is absorbed. There is no preparation for this procedure which usually a takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area and no downtime.
