What is carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that consists of the local micro-injecting of carbon dioxide below the skin in the area of treatment. This improves the blood flow and oxygenation of the tissues, while encouraging the formation of collagen (a basic protein to give the skin firmness) and helps eliminate accumulated toxins.
The therapy is applied in different specialities to improve the appearance of the skin, as well as fighting localised fat, flaccidity, and cellulite. In the field of aesthetic ophthalmology, it is one of the techniques we use at the Miranza clinics to rejuvenate the face.
Its results are natural and progressive, with around 3 initial sessions in the consulting room normally required before you see the benefits, and regular maintenance when we deem appropriate in each case.
Carboxytherapy applied to the area around the eyes is primarily to improve dark, purple circles (normally hereditary) so that they recover their pink colour. We are also able to revitalise and firm up the area for an overall effect that makes your face look more relaxed, healthy and bright.
