Carbon dioxide therapy (CDT) or Carboxytherapy is a procedure which is very similar to mesotherapy. It consists of intradermal or subcutaneous injections of medical grade CO2 using 30 G needles. CO2 insufflation has been widely used in the last 8 years in South America and in particular in Brazil for cosmetic purposes, such as stretch marks, cellulite, localized fatty ares and under-eye dark circles, in combination with other minimally invasive aesthetic procedures. High level of patient tolerance and minimal side effects makes it a very interesting technique in our battery of face and body rejuvenation techniques, with a high level of patient satisfaction.
Carboxytherapy has also been used in the medical field for over 80 years, in Angiology, Phlebology, Endocrinology, and Dermatology to treat diseases: ischemic lower limbs pathologies, diabete ulcers, microvascularization diseases (Raynaud phenomenon). Carboxytherapy has also been used recently on Psoriasis disease with interesting results. Carboxytherapy can dramatically improve the appearance of under-eye dark circles and wrinkles. Although sometimes caused by darkened pigment, or a hollow depression below the lower eyelids.
Studies have shown that injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas just beneath the skin of the lower eyelid, circulation was increased and under-eye dark circles were markedly improved. The treatment takes only five minutes, and is virtually painless and risk-free. A series of 2-6 treatments spaced one week apart is all that is required to achieve a great result.
