Carboxy Facial

Carboxy Facial Treatment at Melocare

The Carboxy facial and eye treatment at Melocare infuses carbon dioxide gas into the skin to encourage an increased flow of oxygen. This minimally invasive treatment can offer long-lasting skin improvements such as:

  • Reduction of dark under-eye circles
  • Elastin stimulation
  • Tissue tightening and brightening
  • Skin regeneration
  • Improvement in blood circulation
  • Improved lymphatic drainage

What is the Principle of Carboxytherapy Treatment?

Carboxytherapy works by infusing carbon dioxide into the skin, creating an acidic environment. This causes oxygen gas to bind to the skin tissues in the treated area and accumulate natural growth factors (vascular endothelial growth factors). Within several days of treatment, there’s an increased natural distribution of oxygen in the treated area, leading to the creation of a new microcirculation. This enhances lymphatic drainage and promotes skin regeneration.

What Does a Carboxy Facial Treatment Look Like?

A typical Carboxy facial treatment at Melocare lasts between 40 and 60 minutes. During the treatment:

  1. A gel is applied to the face in an even layer.
  2. A Carboxy-therapy Activator Face Mask is pressed firmly onto the gel.
  3. The interface produces a specific amount of carbon dioxide, which is infused into the skin.

During the treatment, you may feel heat, a slight tingling, and the skin may become mildly red due to a sudden deposit of oxygen. Within 5 minutes of the treatment, the carbon dioxide applied to the skin is completely replaced by oxygen. There is no recovery period required, so you can resume your usual activities immediately after the treatment.

How Many Carboxytherapy Treatments are Required?

Depending on your skin concerns, a series of 4 to 8 treatments may be recommended. Treatments can be conducted once every 1 to 2 weeks. The effects of a Carboxy treatment are cumulative, with each subsequent treatment improving the results of the previous one. After a course of carboxytherapy treatments, the average effects last:

  • Age 50+: 2-3 months
  • Age 40+: 3-4 months
  • Age 20-40 years: 4-6 months
