Abstract :

Carboxytherapy; therapeutically applied carbon dioxide injections have been used in balneotherapy since 1932. This treatment modality has become the centre of attention as a unique method applicable in dermatology, aesthetic dermatology and anti-aging medicine. This unique method is minimum invasive and non-aggressive which is comfortable for the patient and producing excellent effects without the risk of undesired side effects. In aesthetic dermatology this method may be applied as a rejuvenation modality and is employed mainly due to its classic vasodilatation effect and its capacity to foster intradermal collagen restructuring. In classic dermatology it is used to treat patients with poor healing lower leg ulcers, in diabetic patients and in patients with poor healing surgical wounds. Carboxytherapy is efficient also in some psoriasis manifestations when combined with some other traditional approaches, in circumscript scleroderma, lichen verrucosus as well as hair loss. In aesthetic dermatology the effect is manifest quite soon (usually after two sessions already in the course of 7-14 days). It significantly and visibly improves the tonus of the skin as well as other aesthetic parameters (especially while treating skin laxity in abdomen area, inner arms and thighs and double chin or saggy eyelids. Good effects also show following the application of carboxytherapy to treat stretch marks, cellulite and scars (also older and more extensive scars after burns). Great effects are achieved in correcting the side effects of ill performed interventions such as liposuction or in using carboxytherapy directly to shape problem body areas (thighs, hips and abdomen).
