MESOTHERAPY & CARBOXY THERAPY

Mesotherapy

As series of micro-injections to revitalize skin, treat cellulite, tighten loose skin and remove fatty deposit in localized area of the face and body, Mesotherapy introduces microscopic quantities of homeopathic medications, traditional; pharmaceuticals, vitamins, mineral and amino acids into the skin to treat a variety of conditions. All medications are selected for the specific condition being treated. For example, the emphysema medication Aminophylline is used to treat cellulite because it has been proven to break down fat, as has Isoproterenol. Both medications work to achieve the same purpose in different ways, which is why the medications are often combined. The advantages of injecting medication into the skin/fat include the elimination of side effects and contra-indications. Intolerance to a medication is often triggered by factors such as dose and the body’s ability to break down and excrete the product. In many cases, formerly intolerant patients can tolerate a medication in Mesotherapeutic format.

Carboxy Therapy

One of the most popular treatments in Europe and South America today, Carboxy is used to treat stretchmarks, cellulite, and hypertrophic scars. Studies have shown it to be essential for anti-aging as it improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carboxy therapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas (CO2) for therapeutic purposes, Carboxy therapy originated at the Royal Spas of Frances in 1932 with the treatment of patients afflicted by peripheral arterial occlusive disease. In South America and Europe, carbon dioxide therapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carbon dioxide is a natural constituent of our very being. We breathe in oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide. There are no known risks associated with carboxy therapy.
