Stretch marks rank as one of their primary cosmetic concerns in our clinic. The lines appear most often on the stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. It seems there’s no hiding them, and even smoothing over their appearance has been difficult: until now. Carboxy Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can erase the appearance of stretch marks through a series of body wraps.
Can Carboxy Therapy Remove Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks develop when the skin is stretched very quickly, causing the collagen that supports the skin to rupture. Stretch marks frequently develop during pregnancy, following the growth spurts that occur during puberty, or in connection with a rapid weight loss or gain.
Although there is no medical reason to be concerned about stretch marks, many patients are bothered by the cosmetic appearance of these harmless lines.
There are many home remedies available online to cure stretch marks, but very few have seen visible results. In the case of scars and stretch marks, Carboxytherapy works by encouraging healing. Carboxytherapy restarts the healing process and restores the circulation to the scarred tissue to give it the best chance at healing.
Carboxytherapy treats the root cause of stretch marks by creating new collagen, which can thicken the skin and ease the appearance of stretch marks. This treatment works effectively on new stretch marks that are still reddish in appearance as well as older marks that have become white with age. Patients with darker skin tones often find stretch marks particularly frustrating because the white or silvery lines are so visible. Fortunately, this treatment works quickly and effectively on all skin tones.
What Other Skin Conditions Does It Help With?
Carboxytherapy has become known for its ability to alleviate stretch marks, primarily because so many patients struggle with them.
But Carboxytherapy can be used to improve the skin in many other ways as well. It can ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, erase dark under-eye circles, mute acne scars, and smooth over cellulite. It has been used to speed healing after chemical peels or laser treatments.
Carboxytherapy can be applied to the eyelids, neck, face, arms, buttocks, stomach, and legs.
How Frequently Should I Schedule Treatments?
Carboxy Therapy is recommended as a scheduled program of 4-6 treatments in a weekly routine. Then, patients can schedule follow up sessions every few months to maintain results.
Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Carboxy is great to combine with other cosmetic treatments to complement the outcome of the treatments but improve the renewal of the skin into a healthier and plumper condition.
