Want Tighter Skin? Consider the Benefits of Carboxytherapy.

In this day and age, we have heard of just about every conceivable method of rejuvenating skin that has lost its youthful elasticity. Men and women who want to turn back time on their face and body can now do so without having to go under the knife. From Botox to dermal fillers to ultrasound therapy, there are numerous anti-aging techniques that achieve dramatic results. For those interested in a natural approach to rejuvenation, there is Carboxytherapy.

A Proven Therapy you Haven’t Heard of
What is interesting about Carboxytherapy is that this method of wrinkle, scar, and cellulite reduction has been popular in Europe for well over half a century. In the early 1900s, physicians discovered the power of carbon dioxide in wound healing. Since that time, research has investigated how this naturally occurring gas can improve appearance, as well.

CarboxytherapyCarbon dioxide is produced by every cell in the body. What this means to you is that Carboxytherapy does not insert any foreign substance into your skin. Treatment consists of tiny injections of carbon dioxide in an area of concern. Where CO2 exists, the body perceives a lack of oxygen, which it then directs toward the treated area. The influx of oxygen promotes circulation that stimulates the regeneration of healthy cells. Carbon dioxide also has a positive effect on collagen rebuilding and on the breakdown of fat.

Carboxytherapy is commonly used to address the signs of aging on the face and body. It can also minimize cellulite on the thighs, abdomen, arms, and other areas, and can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks. More and more, patients seeking tighter, more youthful skin are requesting information about Carbon Dioxide Therapy.

Better Skin Without Surgery
If you are beginning to notice the signs of aging on your skin, Carboxytherapy offers an all-natural, non-surgical approach to enhanced beauty. Several treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome. Depending on the extent of treatment, appointments may last from 15 minutes to about an hour.

After treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities with minimal side effects. The most common sensation that patients report is mild pressure in the area treated with carbon dioxide. Over a short period of time, the body absorbs and diffuses the gas, which may result in slight bruising or redness.

eyes-older-womanDark circles under your eyes can make you look tired and older. Find out how to eliminate dark circles below.

Quick Solutions

There are a few quick ways to reduce the appearance of dark circles underneath your eyes:

  • Apply a cold compress to your eyes for 2-5 minutes.
  • Use an eye cream with caffeine to reduce the size of blood vessels near your eyes. If you don’t have an eye cream handy, you can wet a tea bag and place it underneath your eyes for a minute or two.
  • Using concealer is one of the quickest and simplest ways to hide dark circles. Choose a creamy, solid concealer that matches your skin tone and draw a triangle under your eyes that points down toward your cheek. Carefully pat in the concealer with your ring finger.

Long Term Solutions

While the above tricks can help, dark circles become more and more difficult to hide as people age. The following tips will help you eliminate dark circles for good.

  • Get enough sleep. Skimping on sleep is one of the quickest ways to guarantee you’ll have dark circles or puffy eyes. Try to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. It may also help to sleep with your head a little bit elevated.
  • Take your allergy medicine. Sometimes dark circles are caused by allergies, so taking antihistamines and other allergy medicine as directed by your doctor can help eliminate under eye circles.
  • Try carboxy therapy. The Sahara Medical Institute uses carboxy therapy to treat a variety of skin issues. This procedure uses carbon dioxide to improve circulation, encourage collagen production, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It can also be used to treat dark circles underneath your eyes. A small amount of carbon dioxide is injected underneath your eye to improve circulation, which reduces the appearance of dark circles. The treatment only takes about five minutes and most patients come in 2-5 times, spacing each appointment about a week apart.
