Treats scars, cellulite & stretch marks

We provide Carboxytherapy treatments in our London, Nottingham & Leicester clinics. Carboxytherapy is one of the few treatments that works in three phases, for both facial & body fat reduction & skin tightening. Depending on the technique of carbon dioxide administration, we can destroy stubborn fat cells that we would not be able to remove through diet or exercise under normal conditions. When applying CO2 under the skin, we increase blood circulation in the treatment area, while removing excess toxins from our body to the lymphatic system.

Through Carboxytherapy treatments we can improve the texture and elasticity of our skin, we can oxygenate our skin, which makes it brighter and more luminous. Carboxytherapy is a natural and safe therapeutic method for our body, which perfectly adapts to our physiology and stimulates chemical processes in our body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during the treatment?
One of our specialists will inject the area that requires treatment with a specialised needle which is attached by a tube in to a machine that delivers a controlled dose of CO2 gas.

The machine contains a filter that removes any trace of impurities from the gas before it enters a sterile tube and is injected.

The depth of the injection and the flow rate of CO2 gas depends entirely on the area and condition we will be treating.

Treatments will normally take between 15 – 30 minutes.

Is Carboxytherapy painful?
Depending on the area of the body being treated you may feel slight discomfort, pressure or a miner stinging sensation as the gas enters the skin. If you feel like the sensation is a bit much we can apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to numb the area. Please speak to your consultant about your concerns we are here to help in anyway we can.
What sort of side effects are there with Carboxytherpay?
There are no known risks associated with Carboxytherpy. This treatment has been a safe procedure for many years.

When it comes to side effects, you may feel a warm sensation in the treated area, this is a result in improved circulation to the area and should last up to 24 hours.

Carboxytherapy requires the use of a very small needle, like with any injection there is a slight risk of bruising and tenderness at the site of the injection. This is common for any injection and may last for a few days.

Will there be any downtime?
For the most part no, you should be able to return to work and resume your normal activities after your treatment. However, we do ask that you avoid bathing or swimming for the first few hours after Carboxytherapy treatment.
