Carboxytherapy is a medical treatment consisting in the administration of gas [CO2] subcutaneously or intradermal for therapeutic purposes, through micro-localized micro-localised injections by means of thin needles 30G, commonly used in mesotherapy.
Carboxytherapy has ancient origins, already in use in 1932 in Royat, France, used percutaneously for patients with arteriopathy and angiopathy, with carbon dioxide rich water. Several scientific studies have shown that carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity, reactivates the micro-local circulation, stimulates collagen fibers, and breaks the membrane of the adipocites, causing a lipolytic and lipoclasic effect, without damaging the connective tissue, blood vessels and the surrounding neural structures.
Carbondioxide is naturally produced by our body, so it is not toxic, even in high doses, and it is disposed at the physiological level. After a single treatment normally the gas is absorbed in 5/10 minutes. Therefore, we speak of a safe procedure that only presents minor side effects (crackling sensation in subcutaneous areas and small chance of bruising).
Vasodilation: the first direct mechanical effect resulting from the injection of carbon dioxide is a powerful vasodilation, also an increased perfusion of the treated areas is present along with arteriolar sphygmicity. Even the partial pressure of 02 in the tissues is noticeably increased after the subcutaneous administration of CO2•
Stimulation of collagen synthesis: a study carried out in Brazil in 2008 showed a reorganization of the collagen fibers in response to intradermal injections of CO2• It is as if it were sent a message of damage to the dermis that triggered a natural process of reparation. The CO2 improves this process firstly through greater revascularization, and then, by releasing more oxygen in the treated area, improves the phase of "the repair mechanism".
Neo-angiogenesis: by microangiological evaluation - through video capillaroscopy with optical probe - it was possible to assess the actual creation of new capillaries. In 1930 the first experiments that demonstrated the powerful vasodilation were performed on frog's leg.
Receptor activation and lipolysis: the CO2 activates, as a secondary effect, lipolysis and the lipoclasis of the adipocite's membrane (Bohr effect increase and activation of lipolysis receptors). This effect is related to the hyper distention of the esteroceptors subcutaneous, i.e. the corpuscles of Paciniand Golgi. Their activation would lead to the release of algogenic substances such as bradykinin, histamine, serotonin and catecholamines.

~ CO2 is non-toxic and it doesn't cause embolism. It doesn't increase blood pressure.
~ It doesn't increase CO2 levels into the blood. It doesn't produce free radicals.
~ It doesn't cause any allergic reactions.
~ No damages to the deep connective tissues.
~ Naturally eliminated and filtered through the lungs, livers and skin.
Finally a truly portable and a user-friendly device. The ergonomically designed shell and the light weight make it a portable, convenient, shock resistant and easily transportable. The gas is heated by the device to make the treatment as comfortable as possible to the patient.
The high-sensitive touch-screen of the user interface is easy and intuitive and it has pre-set programs and protocols already installed. The therapeutic flow is adjustable from O up to 1SO cc per minute, allowing to get the biggest lift off of the tissues
