TheConsultation explains Carboxytherapy
Carboxytherapy can be used for several medical issues, but is a safe, FDA-approved procedure. Patients typically require 7-10 visits before they see results. These visits are often less than 30 minutes and can be conducted weekly. Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of respiration. Carboxytherapy helps to increase blood flow, by introducing additional carbon dioxide to problem areas. The body responds by sending more blood. The oxygen rich blood enters the cells and can help restore and repair them naturally.
