ST. GALLEN, Switzerland , June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — CSL Vifor today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted its partner American Regent, Inc., a Daiichi Sankyo Group company, approval for Injectafer for the treatment of iron deficiency in adult patients with heart failure and New York Heart Association class II/III* to improve exercise capacity.

*The New York Heart Association Functional Classification is used by Healthcare Professionals to classify patients’ heart failure based on the severity of their symptoms. Patients who have a slight or marked limitation of their physical activity due to fatigue, palpitation and/or dyspnea are considered to have class II or class III heart failure, respectively.CSL Vifor is a global partner of choice for pharmaceuticals and innovative, leading therapies in iron deficiency and nephrology. We specialize in strategic global partnering, in-licensing and developing, manufacturing and marketing pharmaceutical products for precision healthcare, aiming to help patients around the world lead better, healthier lives. Headquartered in St. Gallen, Switzerland , CSL Vifor also includes the joint company Vifor Fresenius Medical Care Renal Pharma (with Fresenius Medical Care).

The value of treating iron deficiency in heart failure patients has been clearly recognized by leading guideline committees such as the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, the Heart Failure Society of America as well as the European Society of Cardiology.
The FDA approval was supported by CSL Vifor’s randomized placebo-controlled study, CONFIRM-HF (NCT01453608), that evaluated the efficacy and safety of ferric carboxymaltose in adult patients with symptomatic heart failure and iron deficiency. The treatment over a 1-year period resulted in a significant and sustainable improvement in exercise capacity in this patient population.

Injectafer / Ferinject (ferric carboxymaltose) is an i.v. iron therapy with market authorization in 85 countries by May 2023 . It has a track record of delivering significant value to patients and healthcare systems which is based on extensive clinical data and more than 25 million patient years of exposure. Injectafer is the most extensively studied IV iron.Ponikowski P, van Veldhuisen DJ, Comin-Colet J, et al.

What is a carboxy treatment for skin?
Carboxy therapy is a minimally invasive procedure for skin rejuvenation. Injections of carbon dioxide gas into subcutaneous tissues promotes blood flow and rejuvenates skin elasticity, tone, and texture. The results are temporary, and ongoing maintenance treatments will be required.
”We are very pleased that the FDA has approved the heart failure label extension of Injectafer , and congratulate our partner on this milestone”, said Hervé Gisserot, General Manager of CSL Vifor. ”Every second patient with chronic heart failure suffers from iron deficiency, with a significant number of patients either not being diagnosed or inadequately treated for iron deficiency. We are confident that Injectafer can make a meaningful contribution to achieve key therapeutic goals in the treatment of these patients.”

Injectafer is indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency in patients with heart failure; iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in adult and pediatric patients 1 year of age and older who have either intolerance to oral iron or an unsatisfactory response to oral iron; and adult patients with IDA who have non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease.
Injectafer (ferric carboxymaltose) is now the first and only intravenous (i.v.) iron replacement therapy in the U.S. indicated for improvement in exercise capacity in adult patients with symptomatic heart failure who have iron deficiencyFlashback finansieras genom donationer från våra medlemmar och besökare.

Periorbital hyperpigmentation: a comprehensive review. J Clin Aesthet Dermatol. 2016;9(1):49-55. Carboxytherapy can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Injection of carbon dioxide stimulates cells called fibroblasts that make collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These substances decrease the size of your stretch marks and can help them fade, so they match your skin tone more closely.Carboxytherapy is the injection of carbon dioxide gas underneath the skin. This treatment is used to reduce cellulite, stretch marks, and dark circles under the eyes. It can also be used as part of treatment for wound healing. Carbon dioxide brings additional oxygen into the area and dilates the blood vessels where it is injected to improve the overall appearance of your skin.

After a carboxytherapy session, your skin might feel warm, itchy, and/or tingly as blood circulation increases and the gas begins to work. This can last for up to 24 hours after treatment. The injected area might also be puffy (particularly under the eyes), but this will improve within a few days as your body absorbs the gas.This article discusses the benefits, side effects, and results that can be achieved from carboxytherapy. You’ll also learn what to expect during a treatment session.Macura M, Ban Frangez H, Cankar K, Finžgar M, Frangez I.

This treatment can also be used to help sculpt the body by removing excess fat in specific areas. Injecting carbon dioxide into these areas decreases the number of fat cells and causes the skin to tighten. Carboxytherapy is often used along with liposuction for body contouring (removing excess skin and fat from the body).Lee GSK. Quality survey on efficacy of carboxytherapy for localized lipolysis.

Carboxytherapy is a painless treatment with minimal or no side effects. You might feel ”pressure” as the gas is injected under your skin. In some cases, bruising can occur in the area of your injections, but this usually lasts less than a week.
Results from carboxytherapy treatments aren’t immediate and they won’t last forever. Depending on the area of the body being treated, it can take between six to eight treatment sessions for you to notice a difference in the shape of your body. For conditions like alopecia or wound healing, it can take 15 to 30 sessions to show positive changes.The cost of carboxytherapy treatments varies by location and the area being treated. In general, sessions can range from $100 to several hundred dollars. Typically, there’s no special preparation required before a carboxytherapy session. During treatment, your healthcare provider will insert a tiny needle underneath your skin and inject a small amount of gas that comes out of a machine called a flow regulator. Carboxytherapy is also used with other treatments to help heal chronic wounds that can develop with conditions such as diabetes and peripheral artery disease. It can also be used to help treat alopecia (an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss).Carboxytherapy can treat dark circles under the eyes, which often occur when blood pools under the lower eyelid. Gas injection improves blood circulation by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and dilating (expanding) existing blood vessels.Carboxytherapy is a relatively pain-free way to improve the appearance of your skin and reduce unwanted stretch marks and other cosmetic changes. While it isn’t very time-consuming, this treatment can put a dent in your wallet—particularly since it can take several weeks of treatment, once or twice a week, to see results. Consult a skin care professional to see if you are a good candidate for carboxytherapy.

What are the risks of carboxytherapy?
Are there any side effects associated with carboxytherapy? The only real possible side effect of carboxytherapy is the potential for a bruise at the injection site. Usually, the eyelids can be treated without leaving any marks, making it a truly “no-downtime” procedure.

What are the dangers of carboxytherapy?
What are the side effects of carboxytherapy? Carboxytherapy is a relatively safe procedure with almost no side effects. People may have bruising at the injection site, specifically in the arms and legs. This bruising should clear up within a week.

Carboxytherapy aims to improve the capillary network of the lower eyelids, as well as to increase the dermal collagen layer in the lower eyelid skin. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the affected areas, blood flow may be increased and improved capillary networks may be formed for longer lasting circulatory benefit. The bluish cast may be reduced, becoming more like a healthy pink tone. Once a series of treatments is completed, the skin may have a more luminous appearance that can last up to approximately six months.
Carbon dioxide is naturally present in our bodies at all times and it is essential to the life processes of both animals and plants. With every breath, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants absorb the carbon dioxide that we exhale and release oxygen back into the atmosphere again.There is a tank of carbon dioxide gas that is connected by plastic tubing to a flow-regulator. The flow-regulator slows down the speed of the gas according to the rate selected by the physician. The gas emerges from the flow-regulator into sterile tubing that has a filter connected at the exit to remove any trace impurities before the gas is run through a tiny needle attached to the opposite side of the filter. The pure gas is now ready to be injected beneath the skin via the tiny needle.One major cause of dark under-eye circles can be vascular pooling. The capillary network of the lower eyelids can become congested for a variety of reasons. Normally, the tears drain from the eyelids into the nose, but if there is some obstruction due to chronic nasal congestion from seasonal allergies, previous nasal fracture, or a deviated septum, the drainage doesn’t function well, and the blood flow to the lower eyelids becomes sluggish, giving rise to the boggy blue tinge known casually as “allergic shiners.” The lack of appropriate oxygenation to the lower eyelid skin allows the bluish cast to show through the thin skin of the eyelids.

There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy. Carbon dioxide injection has been safely used for years to facilitate endoscopic surgeries of the abdomen. Carbon dioxide is also injected directly into the bloodstream by invasive cardiologists for certain diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

This depends upon the severity of the problem being treated. For many patients, six to twelve treatments spaced one week apart yields an excellent result.The only real possible side effect of carboxytherapy is the potential for a bruise at the injection site. Usually, the eyelids can be treated without leaving any marks, making it a truly “no-downtime” procedure. Bruising is very common when treating the arms and legs, so carboxytherapy might not be a good idea if you plan on wearing a bikini the following week during vacation.

Stretchmarks (striae distensae) occur when the skin is stretched to the point where the dermal collagen ruptures. Carboxytherapy may cause the formation of new collagen and subsequent thickening of the skin, which may help to improve the appearance of the stretchmarks through rebuilding the collagen matrix.This website uses cookies so that we can provide you with the best user experience possible.

Hej! Har funderat på att testa men har varit ganska skeptisk pga de höga priset. Vet du om man kan gå på en behandling på salong och där köpa en ce märkt roller för att sedan fortsätta hemma? Vill försöka ta bort rynkor, tydliga porer och kanske strama upp lite.En roller utan CE-märkning är bara en sämre kopia, och inte heller tillverkad för att kunna leverera något tillräckligt. Lite som att jämföra en eltandborste och pinnen vid rena tänder. Du har rätt, 0,2 mm är endast till ansiktet för det finns inget instrument till kroppen från huvudleveratören (grundaren) för denna metod. Det beror på att man inte skall eller kan utföra detta själv. Dermaneedling är en medicinsk CE-märkt metod och inget annar. De som kommit på iden att kunna tjäna pengar på dessa ”rollar” ute på marknaden (utan kvalitetsmärkning) eller ens en nållängd med rätt mått har gjort ett duktigt jobb på att övertyga så många ändå. Hemvårdsrollar i denna form för bristningar kan med god säkerhet kallas för kopior eller piratprodukter.

Fick hudbristningar efter min graviditet. Det ser verkligen hemskt ut och jag vill verkligen ta tag i det…Läste bland om carboxy therapy, ska nog boka en behandling nästa vecka. Återkommer när jag blivit behandlad 🙂
Svar: När man rollar sig med Dermaroller så skapar man ett inflammatoriskt tillstånd i huden. Tusentals microkanaler bildas för att en cellstimulering skall ske. Det är just därför som man inte skall försöka sig på detta helt själv. Det är även därför som verktygen skall vara CE-märkta för att kunna leverera de resultat och säkerhet under proceduren som krävs. Att använda sig utav ett verktyg hemma i denna form är inte som att tex kurera sig med en peelingkur eller smörja in sig med diverse crèmer vid andra kroppsförbättringspreparat. Detta skall aldrig heller användas ihop med kosmetiska preparat som vid rengöring eller annan eftervård, då kosmetika är farligt att föra ned i vävnaden. Denna behandling kan måhända vara kostsam, men det skall den vara för att man skall kunna få tillgång till rätt material. Detta är i grunden en klinikbehandling som inte rekommenderas att utföra själv. Vad nu vissa företag än skriver så skall det inte hanteras på det här viset. De rollar som säljs utan kvalitetsstämplar är ”olagliga” och kommer ge flera jobbiga sidoeffekter till många därute. Visst tar det längre tid med fler bristningar men jag skulle då om jag var du verkligen vara försiktig då det krävs mer rollning. Hur bra blir dessa resultat som alla pratar om? För vid en klinik har man mycket bra effekt och vi jobbar alltid resultatinriktat. Jag kan inte tänka mig att man med dessa kopior kan få önskad effekt då med stor trolighet nålarna är för dåliga samt behandlingen i sig ohygienisk, vilket ger försämrad återhämtning och läkning. Tro mig!förstår dig trådstartaren absolut vad du menar… men många som använt dermaroller har ju fått bra resultat på bristningarna.!? Självklart ska man ju ;vara noga med att göra ;rent huden noga ;innan man rollar. Själv rengör jag med tvål och vatten eller en mild ansiktsrengöring och så rengör jag min dermaroller i desinfektionsmedel. sen så rollar jag ;inte ;så ofta heller för vill låta huden vila mellan gångerna… tror det är viktigt. men om man nu ändå vill behandla sig mot bristningar hemma, vad rekomenderar du då? jag antar att de där korta nålarna på 0,2mm inte gör så stor skillnad på ;bristningarna eller ;kan ; man få bort vita bristningar helt med en så kort längd? ;tyvärr är det ju så sjukt dyrt med behandlingar på salong för det lär ju behövas fler behandlingar än 6st på mig för jag har vita bristningar som jag vill få bort. =( om det inte varit så himlans dyrt hade jag lätt behandlat mig på salong.. använder ni aldrig över 2,0 i salongen? ; ; ; ; Jag tycker faktiskt att ;några ;vita bristningar jag rollat på har blivit mer hudfärgade och jag har inte blivit sjuk 🙂 varför skulle man bli sjuk om man rengör rollern och huden noga innan användning? man får ju va försiktig… ; ; tycker dock det är bra att du varnar folk 😀 ;[/quote]A person’s reaction to chemicals depends on several things, including individual health, heredity, previous exposure to chemicals including medicines, and personal habits such as smoking or drinking. It’s also important to consider the length of exposure to the chemical, the amount of chemical exposure, and whether the chemical was inhaled, touched, or eaten.Och idag var det min premiär för denna nya metod. Tanken är att jag skall gå en gång i veckan i 6 veckor för ett bra resultat kring mina ögon. Jag tillhör dom som har väldigt ytliga blodkärl (mörka ringar runt ögonen) och skall med denna metod testa resultatet.Och det står bland annat att ”Carboxy therapy är inte en engångsbehandling. Normalt sett innefattar en ”behandling” 5-10 sessioner/besök á 30 minuter utförda med 1-2 veckors mellanrum. Resultaten kommer över tid”.Lite svullen blev jag direkt efteråt, men det försvann på bara några minuter. Nu jobbar Koldioxiden i ca en vecka med att föryngra min hud kring ögat och nästa vecka är det dags för behandling nummer två….spännande!

Snyggo! Rackarns snygg du blir! Eller ÄR! Du är fin som du är också men kul att prova lite nytt! Spännande att höra hur du upplever det! Kram snygging! Tess
Between 15 and 20 sessions are helpful to minimize cellulite. Treatments are typically scheduled every other day, although sometimes two or even one session per week will be enough. Your scheduled treatments will depend on the extent of your cellulite. Each session lasts 10 – 25 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated. How many sessions before I see an improvement? After the 5th session you may already begin to see that your skin already looks noticeably healthier. Around the 8-10 session mark, you will appreciate that your skin is firmer. How long do the benefits last? On average, patients enjoy the results of Carboxytherapy for 5-6 months, but your individual results will depend entirely on you. After your initial sessions, twice yearly treatments can help you maintain your results. By following a healthy diet, choosing the right nutritional supplements and exercising regularly, the effects could be visible for years.

Carboxytherapy is a new, simple and proven anti-aging treatment, that dramatically reduces the appearance of cellulite by improving local tissue metabolism and perfusion. Treatments are fast, comfortable and effective for a high percentage of patients. Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves an injection of Carbon dioxide (CO2) into the subcutaneous tissue through a tiny needle.
Over the years people have tried everything from dieting, exercise, loofahs, creams, endermologie and liposuction to get rid of those unwanted, “areas of cellulite” that plague approximately 90% of the female population. Carboxytherapy has been show
n to destroy these fat cells, without harming the surrounding skin structures. Carboxytherapy has been successfully used to shrink “double chins,” reduce “back fat” that bulges along the bra-line, reduce fatty upper arms, and to treat cellulite on the legs, all non-surgically.

Some patients experience a light tingling sensation near the injection site. It disappears within a matter of seconds. The area surrounding the injection site may feel warmer for 10 to 20 minutes due to the increased circulation.Until now, stretch marks were pretty much untreatable. Carboxytherapy can be helpful in softening stretchmarks by increasing the blood-flow to these poorly vascularized regions and allowing them to constrict and contract, making them narrower and blending them better with the surrounding skin.

Everyday we breathe in oxygen, and exhale carbon dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is also the signal for poor blood circulation in the body. All cells in our body, regardless of their job release as their waste product carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is the “cost of doing business” for all cells in our bodies. When we breathe oxygen in to our lungs, the red blood cells pick up the oxygen in our lungs and carry it to our tissues until they encounter an area that has been working hard and has an excess of carbon dioxide. By injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and stretch marks have all been shown to benefit from increased blood circulation. How is Carboxytherapy Therapy performed? During this non surgical method, Carbon dioxide (CO2) is infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissue through a tiny 30G needle (0.3mm in diameter). From the injection point, the carbon dioxide diffuses easily into adjacent treated areas.
A tank of carbon dioxide gas is connected to a flow regulator with plastic tubing. The physician will carefully regulate how much gas flows from the tank.Brian Krans is an award-winning investigative, political, spot news, and rollerblading reporter, and former senior writer for Healthline who helped co-found Healthline News.

What are the disadvantages of carboxytherapy?
The only real possible side effect of carboxytherapy is the potential for a bruise at the injection site. Usually, the eyelids can be treated without leaving any marks, making it a truly “no-downtime” procedure.
Treated areas will feel warm and tingly after the treatment for up to 24 hours as the carbon dioxide gas does its job and circulation improves. But you should be able to perform your normal routine after the procedure is over.

The procedure is almost entirely painless. Some physicians rub numbing cream on the injection site before inserting the needle. Despite the lack of pain, some people report feeling a strange sensation briefly afterward.

When the blood cells reach the location, they create an increase in circulation. This works to repair skin elasticity and, in the case of under-eye circles, change pigment to a healthy glow. When carboxytherapy is used to treat stretch marks and scars, it’s relatively painless. This is because scar tissue doesn’t have nerves. You may feel an itching sensation as the stretch marks are distended during the procedure. The itchiness should resolve in about 5 minutes. Dark knuckles can be caused by different skin conditions, medical conditions, genetics, and more.

Each treatment can cost between $75 and $200, depending on the provider.

How long does it take to see results from carboxytherapy?
Sessions usually take about 15-20 minutes. After 5 sessions of Carboxytherapy, the skin will be noticeably healthier and smoother. And after an average of 8-10 sessions, tightening and considerable reduction of cellulite can be seen in the treated area.
The filter picks up any impurities before they reach the body. The gas then runs through a very small needle on the opposite side of the filter. The physician injects the gas beneath the skin through the needle.

People may have bruising at the injection site, specifically in the arms and legs. This bruising should clear up within a week.People who use carboxytherapy for treating cellulite and fatty deposits may feel pressure during the injection, similar to the sensation felt during a blood pressure test. This is caused by the expanding gas.

Poor blood circulation is partially responsible for cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles. Cells in the body release carbon dioxide as waste. Red blood cells take the oxygen you inhale and carry it to tissues, then pick up carbon dioxide. Eventually, the carbon dioxide is exhaled by the lungs.
Carboxytherapy infuses medical gaseous Carbon Dioxide (CO2) under the skin into the subcutaneous tissue through a small needle. It stimulates blood flow, improves skin elasticity & texture, eliminates fat cells and significantly reduces cellulite.

What are 5 disadvantages of carbon dioxide?
These may include headaches, dizziness, restlessness, a tingling or pins or needles feeling, difficulty breathing, sweating, tiredness, increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, coma, asphyxia, and convulsions.
It is important that you follow the advice of your practitioner carefully after carboxytherapy treatment. This will help you to gain maximum effect from the procedure and reduce the risk of any complications.Price guide: Prices from £65 per area. A course of at least 3 is advised at £180. Treatments should be 1-2 weeks apart but for eyes, your treatments may have to be 3-4 weeks apart, depending on swelling.

Does carboxy really work?
Several studies have found that carboxytherapy is both safe and effective when used to treat cellulite. Under-eye circles: Dark circles under the eyes are usually caused by poor circulation, which creates vascular pooling. Injecting the gas under the eyelid reduces this bluish pooling and replaces it with a blush tone.
Carboxytherapy is said to work simply by tricking the body. Injecting a small amount of CO2 gas into the treatment area will increase oxygen-laden red blood cells. By increasing the amount of oxygen getting to the area, the cells will become more active and speed up new production. Amazing, right?

Treatment with Carboxytherapy is still very new in the UK in terms of the number of practitioners offering the treatment and those suitably skilled and trained to carry out the procedure. In general, as this treatment is more popular in Europe and has origins in France, many of those doctors practicing in the UK are indeed French. Two such doctors, Dr Daniel Sister and Dr Cyrille Blum, both with clinics based in London, have kindly provided some case studies to illustrate the wide range of treatment indications and results achievable with the aesthetic application of carbon dioxide therapy.
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why patients should not undergo this treatment. However, it is not a suitable treatment for anyone with COPD or severe respiratory conditions.

Although there is no evidence that this treatment is harmful for pregnant women, you would generally be advised to wait until after you have given birth before embarking upon a course of treatment.
Most patients find that they can return to work and normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it must be noted that areas of swelling and/or tenderness can persist for up to 5 days. Stomach fat reduction (before on the left, after on the right) treated with 10 sessions of carboxytherapy, twice per week for the first 2 weeks then once weekly for 6 weeks. Your first discussion should clearly set out your expectations and what the practitioner thinks will happen to your skin as a result of carboxytherapy. A medical history will be taken and you will be asked to sign a consent form which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with Carboxytherapy.Objective: To study the effect of whole-body vibration therapy on bone mass, bone turnover and body composition in severely disabled children. Methods: Nineteen non-ambulatory children aged 5.1-16.3 years (6 males, 13 females) with severe motor disabilities participated in an intervention programme with standing exercise on a self-controlled dynamic platform, which included whole-body vibration therapy (vibration, jump and rotation movements). Whole-body vibration therapy was performed at 40-42 Hz, with an oscillation amplitude of 0.2 mm, 5-15 min/treatment, twice/week for 6 months. Bone mass parameters and bone markers were measured at the study start, and after 6 and 12 months. Results: Whole-body vibration therapy was appreciated by the children. Total-body bone mineral density increased during the study period (p less than0.05). Z-scores for total-body bone mineral density ranged from -5.10 to -0.60 at study start and remained unchanged throughout. Approximately 50% of the subjects had increased levels of carboxy-terminal telopeptides of type I collagen and decreased levels of osteocalcin at the start. Body mass index did not change during the intervention period, but had increased by the 12-month follow-up (pless than 0.05). Conclusion: Whole-body vibration therapy appeared to be well tolerated by children with severe motor disabilities. Total-body bone mineral density increased after 6 months of whole-body vibration therapy. Higher carboxy-terminal telopeptides of type I collagen and lower osteocalcin values indicated that severely disabled children have a reduced capacity for bone acquisition.

What to do after carboxytherapy?
Bathing or swimming should be avoided in the first few hours after carboxytherapy treatment.No extremes of hot or cold.Avoid make up for 24 hours.Avoid excess alcohol and salt intake.

How long do carboxytherapy results last?
How long do the benefits last? On average, patients enjoy the results of Carboxytherapy for 5-6 months, but your individual results will depend entirely on you. After your initial sessions, twice yearly treatments can help you maintain your results.
After the procedure, it is very normal for oedema to occur in the body but do not worry, these oedemas will disappear in a very short time. After the procedure, although rare, bruising in the form of spots can be seen in a few places. The bruises disappear in a few days. If Carboxytherapy is to be applied to eliminate weight and cellulite problems, it is recommended that the patient supports the treatment with nutrition and exercise programs.Although it is important to note that this treatment is not for everyone. For some people with special conditions, Carboxytherapy can be harmful. Carboxytherapy is not recommended for:

Sessions usually take about 15-20 minutes. After 5 sessions of Carboxytherapy, the skin will be noticeably healthier and smoother. And after an average of 8-10 sessions, tightening and considerable reduction of cellulite can be seen in the treated area. The number of sessions recommended in order to achieve the best results is 15-20. Session application intervals and total application time are determined according to the evaluation of the physician.
Carboxytherapy, as a modern treatment method, is successfully applied in many parts of the world for the last 20 years. It is a fast, comfortable, effective and non-surgical method that is mostly used in the treatment of cellulite and localised fat. Carboxytherapy is considered to be an extremely effective method, especially in increasing skin elasticity and removing cellulite. It is most often used in areas such as the abdomen, waist and hips. Carbon dioxide gas is also used before and after liposuction, and in the treatment of some skin diseases and birth cracks.

The details of the process may change depending on which part of the body is being treated. But the general mechanics and technique are mostly the same.
Carboxytherapy is a technique that prevents cellulite formation and localised fat, dark under-eye circles and stretch marks by increasing metabolism and blood supply in the area where it is applied.

As carbon dioxide is injected beneath the skin, it reacts with the water molecules in the tissue. This reaction forms a new substance known as carbonic acid. Carbonic acid has the ability to reduce the pH levels of the tissue. Low pH leads to the bond between oxygen and haemoglobin get weaker. Haemoglobin is a substance that is found in red blood cells and is responsible for carrying oxygen around the body. As a result of this, more oxygen is released from haemoglobin. More oxygen means better circulation, more energy production and a stronger immune system.
After the process is completed, as a result of some chemical reactions, the carbonic acid splits into two parts. Resulting in the formation of various alkaline substances. After the pH increase, a pain-relieving effect is seen. Capillaries, arteries and nerve endings start to work better and the body temperature increases by 1 degrees Celsius. As a result, the circulation around the treated area improves and the tissues benefit from the nutritious effects of this reaction. While all this is happening, the fatty acid oxidation process begins. The fat cells are activated and they are able to burn better which makes losing weight much easier. The remaining carbon dioxide is exhaled by the lungs.

Trillions of cells in our body produce an average of 200 ml of carbon dioxide gas per minute when we are resting. This amount increases up to ten times during exercise. In summary, carbon dioxide gas applied in Carboxytherapy has no toxic effect.In order not to experience the same problems again, you should get rid of your old habits after the treatment and try to maintain a more active lifestyle. You should also pay attention to what you eat and choose a healthy diet. Exercises are also very useful in maintaining the positive effects gained after treatment. Carbon dioxide is a colourless gas that is produced by most living creatures. Plants use it to produce energy via photosynthesis and humans and most other animals produce it as they breathe. It is also produced when hydrocarbon fuels such as coal, wood, natural gas and oil are burned. It might be seen as a toxic or harmful gas but that is not the case. Although excessive amounts of carbon dioxide might cause some issues such as global warming or air pollution, almost every living creature needs carbon dioxide to survive. In conclusion, Carboxytherapy is a very safe and non-invasive method. It has many areas of use and is a very affordable option for many people. It can also be combined with other therapy methods, such as Mesotherapy, to get better and long-lasting results. Recently Carboxytherapy has become the main focal point as it is highly effective, very low-risk and can be easily applied. While originally it was used to treat diseases, today it is a great option for people who are looking to have a healthier and livelier appearance.In the Carboxytherapy method, where people can be protected from many existing side effects of spas, carbon dioxide gas can be given to the needed area in a controlled amount. In Carboxytherapy, there is no waiting for absorption from the skin, as in the spa treatment. Carbon dioxide gas is delivered directly to the target tissue, under the skin. For this reason, the recovery process takes much less time for patients who have deformities and irregular fat accumulation on the skin.A carbon dioxide gas tank is used in the process. This tank is connected to a flow regulator that is used to regulate how much gas goes through the plastic tubing. The plastic tubing is completely sterile and with the help of its filter at the end, it can pick up any kind of impurities before the gas reaches the body. Then with a very small needle, the carbon dioxide gas is injected beneath the skin. There is almost no pain during this process however some specialist may rub some cream to numb the pain that can come with the insertion of the needle. Even though there is no pain during the treatment, few people have reported that they had a strange feeling after the treatment.

It is an easy-to-use, fast and painless method that does not take too much of the patient’s time. It does not require any anaesthesia application. Carboxytherapy applications first started in France around 1932. It was originally used to treat ulcer and arteriopathy. It was done with much simpler equipment than the ones that are used today. But then people noticed that effects such as weight loss, skin rejuvenation, tightening and many more benefits on patients who were getting this treatment. So some people started using Carboxytherapy as a method to stop the signs of ageing and to look and feel better.
Additionally, low pH levels increase the flexibility of collagen fibres. This leads to the skin around the treated area becoming softer and smoother. As a result, a decrease is seen in stretch marks, cellulite and dark circles that may form under the eye.Carboxytherapy has a lot of benefits and can be applied for many different reasons. Here are some of the reasons why Carboxytherapy is getting more and more popular each day:

Carbon dioxide gas is neither flammable nor explosive. Therefore, it has been used in medicine for 80 years. Especially in laparoscopic surgery, carbon dioxide gas is absorbed and excreted by the body even though it is given in litres to the body cavities including the internal organs.• It can be used safely in the face area (and also the abdomen, hips, legs, inner and outer thigh areas, and the jowl area) to activate the reaction that reduces localised fat.
