Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy is a revolutionary new treatment at Eden MediSpa. We use carbon dioxide (CO2) to reduce the appearance of scars, fade out stretch marks and diminish dark under eye circles. It is also an effective and safe treatment for fat and cellulite reduction.

Our bodies naturally produce carbon dioxide. However, when we inject it directly into specific areas, we encourage an increased flow of oxygen and blood to that area. The effect of increased oxygen underneath scarred or darkened skin is to increase blood circulation, resulting in new cell production. This helps helps to improve the skin's texture and brighten the skin in the treated areas. It also helps to reduce inflammation, further enhancing the results of your treatment.

This fantastic, safe and effective treatment offers you long-lasting improvements without any downtime.

• localised fat and cellulite reduction
• stretch marks
• dark under eye circles

The improvement in circulation and increased collagen production to the treated area works to restore damaged skin.
When used for treating dark under eye circles, Carboxytherapy works by stimulating the natural production of collagen and increasing the blood flow to the under-eye area. This will restore a more natural colour to the skin, improve dark shadows, and brighten the eye area.

When used for stretch marks, the treatment works to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by returning the skin to a more natural colour.

When used for fat and cellulite reduction, the Carboxytherapy injections are designed to dissolve the fat cells and improve circulation. As a result, it can be a great inch loss, fat reduction and cellulite treatment, helping to give you a smoother, more refined, sculpted figure. Carboxytherapy can be suitable for the most challenging localised areas of fat, such love handles, saddle bags, tummy rolls, thighs and double chin.
Carboxytherapy can be used on all skin types. However, prior to your treatment, we will take a full medical history to confirm suitability for treatment. You will also be asked to give informed consent. The procedure, its benefits and potential side effects will be explained to you. During this time, you are most welcome to ask any questions you may have. You will be provided with verbal or written after care instructions.

Carboxytherapy is a simple, non-invasive process that involves a series of small injections with a very fine needle to the area of concern. Carbon dioxide is injected under the skin to encourage the flow of oxygen filled red blood cells. These cells disperse their oxygen to the problem area and then absorb the injected carbon dioxide. The cells then carry the carbon dioxide back to the lungs where breathing naturally exhales it from the body. The duration of the treatment depends on the areas to be treated and is between 15 to 45 minutes.
You may feel a warm sensation in the treated areas for up to 24 hours, particularly after treatment of cellulite. This is the result of improved circulation to the area.

You may also have a small bruise and tenderness at the site of the injection. This is common for any injection and may last for a few days.

For cellulite, you should see a smoother appearance to your skin immediately. Your skin should continue to become firmer over time, as your blood circulation improves, and you burn away excess fat.

The duration of the results depends on the area treated, but in most cases should be about six months. We recommend top-up sessions every 6 months, and continuing with a healthy lifestyle, to maintain the results.
Usually a course of 6 sessions is recommended. We may space these sessions 1 to 4 weeks apart. The number of treatments you need depends on the severity of your skin condition.

For new stretch marks that are not severe, a single session may be enough. Most, however, may need a treatment once a week for 2 to 4 weeks. Older stretch marks may need 3 or 6 treatment sessions at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks.
Carboxytherapy does not result in any downtime. You are free to return to work or your normal activities straight after your treatment. You should expect slight swelling on the treated areas, as well as redness when treating stretch marks and scars. This redness will soon subside. The treatment does not require an anaesthetic.
• No exercise for 12 hours
• No heat treatments to the face for up to 7 days
• No prolonged UV exposure for 28 days post-treatment
• SPF and antioxidant protection to be worn post-treatment
