Carboxytherapy or Carbon Dioxide Therapy involves injecting tiny amounts of Carbon dioxide (CO2) beneath the skin to increase blood circulation which breaks down fatty deposits and initiates collagen production. A single treatment takes between fifteen minutes to an hour and there is no rest period required. It is 100% safe, minimally invasive and is a scientifically proven method to restore, rejuvenate and revitalise the skin.
Some of the benefits include:
• Firms and brightens the eye contour area
• Tautens loose skin
• Stimulates long term collagen production
• Decreases a double chin by dissolving fat
Carboxytherapy treatment works by introducing warmed Carbon Dioxide gas under the skin using a fine needle in the areas being treated. The body signals this as a lack of oxygen, and rapidly infuses oxygen-rich blood flow to the area. This improves circulation, which in turn stimulates cell reproduction helping to destroy fat cells which increases collagen formation.

Carboxytherapy is non-invasive so we suggest starting as soon as you experience signs of ageing taking place. It is also a less invasive treatment with similar effects to Botox.
Carboxytherapy helps to maintain the “perfect skin” by keeping your skin firm and taught with collagen to avoid the inevitable sagging that takes place over time.

After the procedure a crackling sensation under the skin can usually be felt until the gas is expelled. The treated areas should not be placed under water for about 4 hours after treatment. Only a few patients will get some bruising if a blood vessel is hit with the needle. Patients can return to work right after the procedure.
The procedure uses a fine needle, which is less painful than a mosquito bite. Slight pressure may be experienced during the injection of the gas, a light pulsation as well as a light feeling of swelling under the skin also occurs. The CO2 is very soluble and quickly spreads out from the target area of the injection into the surrounding cells and id usually absorbed within 5 minutes.
Generally, facial Carboxytherapy require 4 to 6 sessions of treatments. Clients require to have a 30-minute session every 2 to 4 weeks as each treatment is accumulative. Maintaining results requires a touch up session every 6 to 8 months.
At Laser Elite we have a customized solution to make Carboxytherapy more affordable by combining it with the other procedures in a bundled package over a period of time. We pride ourselves in being the most cost-effective Carboxytherapy centre in Gauteng.
At Laser Elite, a highly trained therapist will perform a pre-screening evaluation to determine whether the patient is suitable for the Carboxytherapy procedure. Certain pre-existing medical conditions are not recommended which the therapist will advise on. CO2 is a natural by-product of the body and is not toxic, even in higher doses. It is extremely safe if done with the correct protocols and a pre-treatment medical consultation. Within 5 minutes of a procedure the gas is totally reabsorbed and the area treated returns to normal.
Carboxytherapy is suitable for all skin types without significant pain or recovery time, however it is recommended that a medical consultation prior to treatment is done.
