How many treatments are necessary?
Typically 3 treatments are performed 1-2 weeks apart. After this, before and after photos are compared to analyze the improvements in skin tightening. Most clients opt to proceed with more treatments, as the more treatments are performed, the better the results become (as seen in the above actual client photos). It is difficult to say how many treatments are needed overall, as every person is different with varying stages of aging. The most dramatic changes are seen 2 to 6 months after treatment, when the effects of collagen stimulation and remodeling become evident. This is why we are very diligent in taking and sharing photos with all of our clients.
Is Carboxytherapy safe?
At Bella Viságe, our Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner Jeanna Parker performs the procedure and the initial consultation to discuss the process of carboxytherapy. Because carbon dioxide is a non-embolic gas (meaning it cannot cause an air embolism), it is very safe when performed with the correct protocols and a pre-treatment consultation. Carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of the body and is not toxic, even in elevated doses. After the treatment, the gas is absorbed into the tissues within 5 minutes and the area treated returns to normal. There may be post-procedure edema and redness for several minutes to one day.
Can all skin types be safely treated with Carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy safely treats all skin types without significant pain or downtime.
