Carboxytherapy/ Mesotherapy

Carboxytherapy is one of the most effective therapies used today to fight cellulite, excess body fat, and overall any normal aging associated with the body. Carboxytherapy is intended to jump-start circulation and increase the production of collagen, dramatically improving the look of the skin. It’s a non-surgical method, which involves the use of carbon dioxide gas administered subcutaneously, or under the skin. Carboxytherapy is an innovative treatment technique.

Carboxytherapy is a treatment that utilizes carbon dioxide gas to target and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Dr. De La Vega & Dr. Mercado recommend carboxytherapy for patients who want to reduce excess fat and cellulite on the stomach, thighs, hips, chin, legs, arms, and buttocks—all without surgery. A single painless injection of carbon dioxide gas can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite in these areas. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is proven to break down fat cells when injected directly under the skin. The carbon dioxide increases circulation and blood flow in capillaries and brings more oxygen to cellulite dense areas. The oxygen helps release fluid trapped in those areas, leading to less fat and firmer skin. One to three weekly sessions of carboxytherapy are ideal to see good results, but up to 20 sessions may be necessary to eliminate cellulite, depending on the extent of your cellulite. Combining carboxytherapy treatments with Mesotherapy offers even greater cellulite reduction.

Carboxytherapy is also used to lessen the appearance of scars and stretch mark. In the case of scarring, the increased blood flow caused by carboxytherapy allows the skin surrounding the scar to constrict and contract. This makes the scar itself appear narrower. Even acne scars that are resistant to filling agents can show improvement with carboxytherapy.

How many Carboxy treatments will I need?

The number of carboxy treatments required to achieve optimal results varies from patient to patient. It depends on the diagnosed condition, the area to be treated, skin type, and the patient’s expectations.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy micro-injections deliver natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and homeopathic substances, to a specific area of the body, to treat a specific condition such as cellulite. These painless micro-injections have been popular in Europe for decades and, they offer a natural alternative to liposuction. A series of treatments provide amazing, beneficial and long-lasting results. Mesotherapy can be particularly effective when combined with other cellulite treatments and a fitness and weight loss management program.

While people may think of liposuction to achieve cellulite reduction, it is not a good treatment alternative. Cellulite responds best to a comprehensive treatment plan which includes: injection treatments, and carboxytherapy. Mesotherapy, works by improving the micro-circulation, dissolving and shrinking fat cells, removing/improving fibrous connective tissue, and improving lymphatic drainage.

There are virtually no side effects with mesotherapy, aside from occasional slight bruising. Mesotherapy is a process of injecting natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and homeopathic substances, or medications that can address the various contributing causes and thereby reduce cellulite. The series of tiny injections are placed intracutaneously, just under the surface of the skin. Painless and quick, a series of mesotherapy treatments gives impressive results that last, especially when combined with other cosmetic and weight loss treatments including diet, and exercise.
