Carboxy Therapy was first founded in French Spa’s in the 1930s, nowadays this procedure includes CO2 gas being injected into the target area of your client. When this happens red blood cells will rush to this area to deliver the CO2 to the lungs. In doing this the treatment has increased the activity of cells in that area promoting healing and the production of new cells which will rejuvenate the skin. This treatment is used mainly for scarring, cellulite and to leave the client’s skin looking plump and fresh.
This treatment can be performed anywhere on the body, although if your client is looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite the CO2 will need to be injected deeper into the skin, called the subcutaneous layer. This treatment is painless but may be uncomfortable during the injections, which our SMS course will qualify you to legally apply numbing cream to your clients.
