Carboxy Facials

What is a carboxy facial?

The team at Rehab Wellness uses carboxy facials to improve skin elasticity, encourage collagen repair, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Carboxytherapy or carbon dioxide therapy is becoming a popular way to rejuvenate the skin, as it’s safe and minimally invasive as well as being clinically proven to achieve results.

Carboxy facials involve the injection of very small quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) under your skin. The CO2  stimulates production of new collagen fibers by triggering a response from your body to what it sees as a lack of oxygen in your skin.

As a result, oxygen and nutrients flood the treatment area, improving circulation, restoring cell health, and increasing water retention in your tissues.

One carboxy facial treatment session lasts around 20 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime.

Why is CO2 used in aesthetic treatments?

Carbon dioxide is a natural gas, one of the most abundant in the atmosphere around us. When you breathe in, your body takes oxygen out of the air you pull into your lungs and expels CO2  as you breathe out.

Plants and trees soak up the CO2 and release oxygen into the atmosphere for us to breathe in again. Therefore, CO2  is a natural part of your body’s chemistry and one of the safest substances around. The cells in your body release CO2 as a waste product, so when there’s an excess of CO2  in your organs or tissues, your body recognizes that the area needs an increase in oxygenated blood.

By infusing the tissues under your skin with CO2  as is done with a carboxy facial, you’re activating this response. Extra oxygen and nutrients boost your body’s repair capabilities, and you benefit from a safe and effective method of facial rejuvenation.
