Carboxy therapy is an advanced technique to non-surgically treat and improve cellulite, stretch marks and dark under-eye circles. Carboxy therapy injects carbon dioxide gas into the tissue underneath the skin using a needle. The infusion of carbon dioxide to this area improves circulation to the tissues, improves skin elasticity and works to reduce the local fat deposits in the area. This CO2 infusion helps to rebuild the collagen and circulation to that area.
