Carboxytherapy uses carbon dioxide to target stretch marks with quick, non-surgical treatments. This simple procedure is geared toward rebuilding the collagen matrix and encourage the formation of new collagen while improving the skin’s elasticity.
Stretch marks are a common problem that affect many men, women and teenagers. They frequently appear as unattractive red, purple or white streaks across the hips, stomach, breasts, buttocks, flanks, thighs, arms, or shoulders. They may occur with pregnancy, rapid growth spurts, weight lifting, rapid weight gain or loss, and medical steroid use. Stretch marks happen when the tissue under the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched, the normal production of collagen is disrupted. As a result, scars in the dermis called stretch marks may form.
Research and studies have indicated carboxy to work in multiple complimentary ways. First, carbon dioxide can mechanically eliminate fat cells. Second, it has a vasodilatory effect (causes dilation of blood vessels) on the capillaries in the area. Wider vessels mean bigger and stronger blood flow to the area, which means more oxygen. The increase in oxygen is important because it eliminates the built up fluid from between the cells and the skin is stimulated to produce more collagen. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue.
