La Carbossi terapia
In English: Carbossitherapy or Carboxytherapy
The health benefits of carbon dioxide were first widely noticed in the Royal Spas of France in 1932, where patients with diabetic ulcers and other medical conditions were sent to bathe and heal in C02 rich waters. In Italy, it was developed into the therapy widely used in Europe and South America today.
Studies have shown the impressive results carbossitherapy can provide: skin tightening, cellulite reduction, lightening of dark under-eye circles, softening scars and stretch marks, to name a few. Carbossi treatments are rapid, comfortable, and effective for a high percentage of patients.
Carbossitherapy is a unique treatment that uses carbon dioxide gas (CO2) injected under the skin to improve elasticity of the skin and flush out fat cells. This is very effective for facial areas such as around the eyes, cheeks and jowls to help tighten sagging areas and rejuvenate thinning skin. Studies have shown it to actually increase the thickness and blood vessel flow of the dermal layer - which has huge benefits on all facial areas.
Carbossitherapy is also widely used to help reduce fat tissue in spot areas. We use this in the treatment of fat pads under the eyes, jowls, as well as fat deposits and cellulite of the legs, buttocks and abdomen. There's no downtime involved.
It’s extremely safe for the whole body and greatly adaptable to each individual's needs. Carbossi is praised for the natural and gradual results it achieves. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue.
Each treatment is cumulative, and in order to see results you must first build a solid foundation for each subsequent treatment to progress from. Depending on your concern and the present free radical or environmental damage to the area, a foundation can take between 4-8 treatments. Thereafter results are seen quickly with each appointment. Oftentimes clients will opt to come in for maintenance appointments, but with the right aftercare and lifestyle choices, the benefits can last years.
Combine with other treatments:
When Carbossitherapy is combined with other treatments like the CO2 fractional ablative laser , wonderful results can be obtained since it has a maximizing effect. Other facial treatments can be also used to boost the results. Call us for more information about The De Pieri Clinic's treatments with a CO2 laser in Kelowna.
