Carboxytherapy in Chicago
What is carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is a treatment for cellulite, stretch marks, and dark circles under the eyes. It originated in French spas during the 1930s. It consists of the administration of carbon dioxide gas [CO2] for therapeutic purposes. The treatment can be applied to the eyelids, neck, face, arms, buttocks, stomach and legs. These are infusions of carbon dioxide, a natural gas in the body.

How does carboxytherapy work for dark circles under the eyes?
One of the main causes of dark circles under the eyes is the accumulation of blood vessels. The capillary network of the lower eyelids can become congested for a variety of reasons.
The lack of adequate oxygenation of the lower eyelid skin creates the bluish plaster shown under the eyes.
Carboxytherapy works to improve the capillary network of the lower eyelids. It increases the dermal collagen layer in the lower eyelid skin. Once a series of treatments is completed. The skin has a brighter appearance that lasts about six months.
How does carboxytherapy for stretch marks work?
When injected through a specific technique, carbon dioxide gas is directly toxic to fat cells. The fat cells burst and are eliminated by the body.
How is carboxytherapy treatment administered?
The technique for cosmetic purposes uses intradermal or subcutaneous injections with a 30G or 32G needle.
Sterile carbon dioxide gas is injected using a standard programmable device. It slows down the aging of the skin and removes dark circles, localized fat pads and stretch marks.
Does carboxytherapy hurt?
When carboxytherapy is used to treat stretch marks and scars, it is relatively painless. The treated areas will feel hot and tingly after treatment for up to 24 hours, as the carbon dioxide gas does its job and circulation improves. But, you should be able to perform your normal routine after the procedure is complete.
How many treatments do I need?
Generally, people need 7 to 10 carboxytherapy treatments, spaced about a week apart, before they begin to see results. Each treatment can cost between $75 and $200, depending on the provider.
Are there any side effects?
The only real possible side effect of carboxytherapy is the possibility of a bruise at the injection site. Usually, the eyelids can be treated without leaving any marks, making it a truly “no downtime” procedure. Bruising is very common when treating arms and legs, so carboxytherapy may not be a good idea if you plan to wear a bikini the following week on vacation.
