Carboxytherapy is the measured subcutaneous injection of carbon dioxide for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. Carboxytherapy solves the problems of skin aging, fatty deposits and neck and joint pain.
This procedure is widely performed in leading European clinics. The history of Carboxytherapy use in Russia is relatively recent. However, the method had already proven its effectiveness. Now, it is available at the Physiotherapy Department of Samara City N.I. Pirogov Clinical Hospital №1.
How long has carbon dioxide (CO2) been used in disease treatment?
The therapeutic use of carbon dioxide began in 1720 at a health resort in Pyrmont, Germany. In 1953, the French physician Jean-Baptiste Romeuf published the results of his 20-year-long studies of carbon dioxide injections.
How does carbon dioxide act on human body?
Carbon dioxide is a natural component of human body, but an increased concentration of this gas can evoke biological processes.
In the injection area, the body reacts by activating of microcirculation and lymph flow. In this area, the oxygen concentration also increases. Metabolism and removal of toxins and tissue waste products accelerate.
In 30 minutes, the gas is completely eliminated from the body, but the blood vessels and cells continue to function in an accelerated regime with an increased supply of oxygen, collagen synthesis, faster regeneration and fat breakdown. These mechanisms remain effective for 5-7 days. As a result, the muscular tension is released, which helps alleviate stagnation and inflammation, as well as resolving swelling which, in turn, prolongs the analgetic effect.
Additionally, after the procedure, there is visible skin lifting and a rejuvenation effect, faster wound healing, pain reduction and fatty deposits breakdown. The effect after the course of procedures lasts for up to one year. Course duration: 5-20 procedures.
What diseases are being treated with carbon dioxide?
1.Urology (erectile dysfunction)
2.Gynaecology (diseases with decreased blood flow in genital area);
3.Neurology (vertebrogenic pain syndromes, headaches, migraine, vertigo);
4.Diseases of locomotor system (arthritis, arthrosis, rheumatic diseases, spinal disc herniation);
5.Dermatology (psoriasis, allergic dermatoses, alopecia)
6.Vascular diseases (trophic ulcers, Raynaud syndrome)
7.Rehabilitation after burns, trauma and surgical operations;
8.Local fat deposits (abdomen, hips, double chin)
10. Decreased skin elasticity, skin aging, striae, post acne marks
11. Dark eye circles.
