Carboxytherapy is an intravenous therapy that uses Carbon Dioxide.
The CO2 is inserted intravenously into the muscles, forcing the body to draw in large amounts of oxygen to the area injected, thereby improving blood and oxygen circulation. To explain, the body works with energy which is fueled by oxygen which then creates carbon dioxide as a waste product.
The oxygen we breathe in is absorbed by our red blood cells which travel throughout the body in search of cells to provide oxygen with in order to perform their functions.
When high levels of carbon dioxide are encountered by these blood cells, they feed the cells with oxygen and take the carbon dioxide in which is then exhaled by our lungs.
We then breathe in more oxygen and the whole process starts again. In essence, carboxytherapy tricks the body by increasing the amount of oxygen to parts of the body where it is injected promoting cell activity and in turn speeds up the healing process or the production of new cells to revitalize the area.
Thus far we have had good results using Carboxytherapy. Its main uses are for weakness in the skin, arthritis, spondyloarthritis, ulcers, thrombosis, psoriasis, asthma, impotence, stretch marks and many more issues.
