Introduction
Carboxytherapy    is   a   mesotherapy   like   non-surgical   procedure   used   to   infuse   CO2   gas   below   the   skin   (sub-cutaneous   or   intradermic) through a tiny 30G mesotherapy needle. Because   CO2   is   non-embolic   it   is   very   safe   if   done   with   the   correct   protocols   and   pre   treatment   medical consultation with a doctor. Carbon   dioxide   is   a   natural   by   product   of   the   body   and   is   not   toxic   even   in   elevated   doses   unless   a   pre   existing medical condition exists. There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy. In   normal   physiology,   our   cells   produce   CO2   as   a   by-product   of   cellular   respiration,   the   process   of   breaking down sugars or fats with oxygen. After a treatment the gas is totally reabsorbed within 5 minutes and the area treated returns to normal   Carboxytherapy   originated   at   the   Royal   Spas   of   France   in   1930   with   the   treatment   of   patients   afflicted   by peripheral   arterial   occlusive   disease.   CO2   therapy   has   been   applied   to   the   treatment   of   stretch   marks,   cellulite, and   hypertrophic   scars   with   impressive   results.   Studies   have   demonstrated   that   carboxytherapy   improves   skin elasticity,   improves   circulation,   encourages   collagen   repair,   improves   the   appearance   of   fine   lines   and   wrinkles, and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carboxytherapy is a safe, minimally-invasive Non-surgical procedure that bears minimal risks of side effects. Mechanism of action Vasodilatation The first effects following CO2 injection is a strong vasodilatation, a blood flow increase and a higher pO2 in the treated area. The Bohr effect Local   oxygen   release   is   improved   because   of   the   Bohr   effect.   The   Bohr   effect   describes   the   tendency   of   haemoglobin   to   have   less   affinity for   oxygen   when   the   blood   concentration   of   CO2   is   increased.   This   lower   affinity   leads   the   haemoglobin   to   release   the   oxygen   better   in superficial tissues and muscles. CO2 is quickly converted to bicarbonates and H+ acid in presence of the carbonic anhydrase enzyme. CO2 + H2O --> H+ + HCO3- This   reaction   causes   the   tissue’s   pH   to   become   acidic   with   even   more   dissociation   of   O2   from   haemoglobin,   allowing   the   tissue   to   become even more oxygenated.             Stimulation of collagen synthesis A   2008   Brazilian   study   showed   a   reorganization   of   collagen   fibers   following   intradermal   injections   of   carbon   dioxide   and   demonstrated   that the   CO2   is   capable   of   increasing   the   collagen   turnover:   a   trauma   to   the   dermis   launches   a   healing   process   with   collagen   synthesis.   CO2 improves   the   process   by   first,   increasing   neovascularization   with   more   healing   substances   and   factors   to   be   on   site.   In   second,   it   releases more oxygen around and in the healing area, improving the recovery phase. Neo-angiogenesis effect The   first   experiments   in   the   1930s   consisted   of   injecting   CO2   into   the   leg   of   a   frog.   They   have   shown   a   strong   vasodilatation,   associated with the creation of new capillaries.

It doesn’t increase blood pressure It doesn’t increase CO2 in blood.
