Carboxytherapy is one of the best facial and body aesthetic medicine techniques which achieves spectacular beauty results, reducing safely and effectively problems such as cellulite, orange peel skin, localized fat, fluid retention, stretch marks, sagging, lack of elasticity and helps to restore a youthful look. In the next video, I’ll be telling you more about this technique.
 
It involves the application of completely natural micro-subcutaneous injections of a gaseous drug; CO2. One of the reasons why this technique is so powerful is because we are using a product that the body recognizes as something natural as it is already within us. When we inhale O2; our body assimilates and transforms it and on exhaling, we expel CO2.
 
This technique originated in France in 1624, where doctors used carbonated water baths to treat inflammation of specific areas. Seeing the results that were achieved and how it improved the skin, 1777 saw the beginnings of the first medical research with CO2.  In 1932 the first subcutaneous injections were administered to people with circulation problems and they saw for themselves how the skin was improved in many aspects. In the 50s, the Royal Cardiovascular Research Institute opened in France. Although this technique had been used in medicine for some 400 years, the term “Carboxitherapy” was actually coined in Rome in 1995. Currently, laparoscopic surgery is also used to treat specific areas.
 
I’m going to focus on telling you about how this technique is used in body and also facial treatments (chin, scars, dark circles, eye bags, wrinkles …) and lips, as I already mentioned in this post.
 
One of the things that I like the most, is that during the same session, it is possible to improve all body issues that worry us such as cellulite, sagging skin and stretch marks.

The micro-injections are performed using a very thin needle through which the gas travels from a hose from a specific device that regulates the gas speed and flows, the dose administered and injection time.
 
Accumulated fat and cellulite in the stomach area and on love handles are some of the problems that worry us. Orange-peel skin takes on a bumpy unsightly appearance which is produced, among other things, by the accumulation of fat in subcutaneous tissue. These fat packets press against the skin and that is what gives cellulite its characteristic appearance. In this case, carboxitherapy works at a deeper level to achieve a double effect by controlling both the flow and pressure.

– On the one hand, the CO2 pressure impacts adipocytes making fat dissolve more easily. When the gas enters into the skin with a lot of pressure, it breaks through the membranes and removes their contents, i.e. it mobilizes fat and reduces cellulite and orange peel skin.
 
– On the other,  the flow produces arterial vasodilation which improves circulation, the oxygenation of cells and removes all toxins from the skin.
 
After the session, you’ll notice increased skin hydration. Skin will produce more collagen and improved texture and elasticity of the dermis and of course, less cellulite. This method is also very effective for women who are recovering from pregnancy, as it helps to eliminate abdominal fat, restore tone and elasticity.
 
Fluid retention is another problem that can be alleviated and improved with this technique. With small infiltrations, the entire lymphatic system is treated from the ankles upwards. Micro-injections produce vasodilation, which improves blood flow and improves cell oxygenation. With more oxygen, blood flows better and fewer fluids are retained, so any leg swelling and heaviness is reduced.
 
The buttocks area is one of the areas where best results are achieved as here we find stretch marks, fat or cellulite, and sagging skin. Stretch marks are treated individually by injecting CO2. Stretch marks are torn tissues, blood does not reach there and that is the reason for how they look. On injecting CO2, little by little oxygen and nutrients arrive to stretch mark areas, repairing them, making them less visible. If you have cellulite, it is treated using the same procedure as used on the legs. In the event you have sagging skin, spectacular results are achieved in the buttocks area raising it by several cms, making it a perfect technique to perform throughout the year and especially as summer approaches.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In the arms, carboxytherapy acts by tightening the skin, rejuvenating it but also reducing centimeters.
 
Sometimes during the session, it will be normal to feel a little stinging in the area being treated and some redness may appear that will disappear within hours. Don’t worry, although it is important to let the specialist know how you feel at all times so he/she can adjust the gas flow pressure.
 
As this is a natural and minimally invasive technique, 1 to 2 sessions can be performed a week and these can be combined with any beauty and aesthetic medicine technique using other devices such as peelings, radio frequency… The number of sessions will depend on individual needs,  the areas to be treated and the patient’s characteristics.  Usually, treatments require 5 to 10 sessions.

To enhance the effects of the treatment and achieve long-lasting results it is recommended to:
 
– Drink plenty of water to help eliminate toxins and fats that we have mobilized with CO2.
 
– Exercise or go for long walks.
 
– Follow healthy eating guidelines that include a diet rich in diuretic vegetables, lean meats and fish.

Ultrasonic fat cavitation treatment is a ground-breaking process which combines ultrasound, radio frequency and vacuum therapy with the help of advanced technologies for a highly potent body sculpting treatment.  This procedure is highly effective and is a non-surgical alternative for liposuction surgery. 

 

Equipos de cavitation is used in this treatment. The ultrasound exactly targets fat and cellulite, transmitting powerful sound energy pulses into the fat. These break the fat cells, causing them to reduce in size. The radio frequency emitted from cavitation equipment uses energy to heat the deeper layers of tissue, reducing the size of the fat cells, promoting collagen production and increasing blood flow. 

 

A wide range of Cavitation machines is used in this treatment. This procedure not only improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage but also makes the underlying fat layer smooth by increasing elasticity. Maquinas de cavitation work synergistically for successful fat subtraction, cellulite reduction, body shaping, and skin tightening.

 

If you live in the United States and reside in Miami, there are several Spa operating in the city which offers cavitation related treatments. Spas in Miami are well equipped with Cavitation machines in Miami. Ultrasonic cavitation technology facilitates and directs concentrated sonic energy towards only at the treatment areas. This selectively dismantles the hypodermic fat cells through thousands of microscopic collapses, which impact the fat cell membranes. Most Spas in Miami offer these types of treatments with sophisticated Cavitation machines in Miami.

 

Aparatos de cavitation Miami is known to be painless and comfortable. Some people may experience slight distress due to the specific noise spreading inside the body. Overall Cavitation equipment Miami cause no harm to the body.

 

Cavitation equipment Miami is up to date and well maintained by experienced aesthetic professionals and beauty therapists. After the breakdown of the fat cell membrane known as the adipose tissue, the fat is circulated into the interstitial fluid in between the cells. Here they enzymatically metabolize into glycerol and free fatty acids. This water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system to be in the generation of new energy. The insoluble free fatty acids are decomposed after entering the liver into any other simple fatty acids. Cavitation Spas in Miami are one of the best in the USA due to Cavitation equipment Miami.

 
 

The cavitation treatment can last up to 10-15 minutes, depending on the body part and provides you with a long-term solution to do away with excess body fat which is quite difficult to remove with traditional exercises.

LED Light Therapy or Phototherapy is the interaction of light, delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), to activate cell receptors causing them to produce collagen or multiply to treat multiple skin conditions. 
 
 
 
 
                                                                                                                                        
 
 
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were found by NASA to stimulate plant growth in space. 
LED light in different wavelength colors is used to treat many skin-related issues, such as acne, wound healing, and collagen stimulation. 
 
The Food and Drug Administration has approved LED light therapy in cosmetic applications because it carries no risk of overexposure or eye injury.
 

LED light systems are used in doctors' offices, spas, and salons. You can buy LED light systems for home use.

LEDs offer a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. The light from the LEDs interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce new collagen and elastin. Studies confirm that the same LED energy can be used to inhibit collagen formation, which can be helpful in the treatment of scars. By manipulating the wavelengths, cells can be turned on and off.
 
Different color LED light penetrates the skin at different depths, thereby providing different results based on the color light being emitted.
 
 LED light has been found to produce results with regular use over a period of time, usually 8-12 weeks. This is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no downtime, making it an easier sell to your clients who are looking for results.
 
Each LED light color penetrates the skin differently.
Blue light is an antibacterial agent.
Red light is an anti-inflammatory. Near-infrared light stimulates cell activity and increases production of collagen and elastin. 
Yellow light helps the lymph system to detoxify your body. 
Green light increases melanin production and reduces redness.
 
 
 Red LED light penetrates 8-10 mm and can be used for aging or mature skin to stimulate fibroblast activity, increase collagen production, rejuvenates skin tissue, smooth skin texture, improve skin tone, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles because of increase blood circulation. Anti-wrinkle treatments LED Light Therapy is great for stimulating collagen production, a protein accountable for the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Collagen also repairs damaged skin cells, a lot of patients enjoy younger-looking, healthier skin after series of treatment.
 
 
 Yellow Light Therapy – Toning
Yellow light stimulates the nervous and lymphatic systems, toning and strengthening the muscles under the epidermis, bringing tightness back to skin, aiding the anti-aging process
 
Blue light LEDs are used in the treatment of acne. Blue LED light penetrates 5 mm and can be used to kill acne-causing bacteria, clear comedones, calm inflammation and redness, control sebum production, promote protein synthesis, stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation in the dermal and epidermal.
Also used in hair-loss treatments. 
 
Green LED light penetrates 2-5 mm and can be used to reduce hyperpigmentation, calm the skin after a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment and help repair skin damage. This is a perfect finish to some of the more abrasive facial treatments you may offer.
Unlike some laser light therapies, LED light therapy isn’t an unpleasant procedure. Instead, it’s meant to expose your skin to high-frequency light waves to excite your skin.
 Light therapy isn’t a new technique — even babies are put under lights when they have jaundice to reduce skin yellowness.
 Red light therapy was initially used to treat cell injuries on astronauts after finding yourself in space. Now you and astronauts might have something in common when you undergo laser light therapy treatments.
Blue Light is an FDA cleared non-painful treatment for mild and moderately severe acne.
 
***Wrinkle Correction
LED red and infrared light is used for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. The penetrating light waves of the red and infrared light stimulate your body's natural production of collagen and elastin. The stimulation of collagen plumps up the skin. The LED red light has an overall lifting effect and improves tone and texture.

Lymphatic drainage has been praised as a great way to flush out toxins from your body.

Relax while you burn between 900 - 1500 calories!!!
                                                    
Is a simple way to keep your lymph system working in good condition, by stimulating the system of vessels and lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage massage benefits extend from detoxification to fighting cellulite.


For cosmetic purposes, this type of massage can improve the overall look of your skin, by fighting cellulite and improving spider veins, scar tissue, and even acne or redness.


To help flush out the toxins, you should drink plenty of water right after the massage and avoid sodium-rich foods, along with alcohol and coffee that can enhance water retention.


Pressotherapy is an exclusive detoxifying treatment, which through effective lymphatic drainage, helps to promote the body's natural toxin clearing functions.


The revitalization and oxygenation of the tissue help to slim and redefine the legs, stomach, and arms while enhancing skin tone.


It is used for treatments consisting in applying an external pressure on legs , abdomen or arms in order to activate the return circulation , favoring the reabsorption of edema and interstitial fluids . The venous circulation and lymphatic drainage are improved. Pressotherapy is a computer controlled compression system, which operates using inflating pumps. The device has seven separate chambers, which are positioned around the limbs. These focus on moving the venous and lymph flow, starting from the ankles and moving to the upper thighs, stomach and finally the arms. Designed to increase blood circulation and lymph flow, Pressotherapy enhances extra-cellular fluid clearance, reduces bloating, swelling and edema, alleviates leg fatigue and improves oxygen flow through the whole body. Pressotherapy can be used in conjunction with seaweed wraps to detoxify, firm, tone, improve circulation and increase lymphatic drainage.

A great, relaxing alternative to liposuction, which can be coupled with other treatments for exceptional results.


There is no treatment for  aesthetic weight loss that does not lead including Pressotherapy simply because Pressotherapy is a lymphatic drainage 

through the air pressure on the points nodes that helps to expel all the toxins and waste from the inside body.

Lymphatic drainage effect of pressure therapy exceeds all other hardware and manual methods of figure correction.

The machine that we show in the picture comes with three functions: Thermal Blanket, Pressotherapy, and Passive exercise : the three functions without moving the person.
In other words one machine, you have three treatments for weight loss.

With passive exercise stimulate the muscles in the same way they do when they are performing a body exercise. Also, exercise serves to invigorate and stimulate flabby skin 


With Thermal Blanket provide heat to stimulate perspiration and elimination of toxins, both internally and skin level . With pressotherapy , from the ankles up conducted by air pressure massage and lymphatic drainage to eliminate through urine all excess fat and toxins accumulated in the body , thus favoring processes post -operative or just detoxification treatments and weight loss .


The results are well known ....... Fantastic !!!!


HOW IT WORK


This Pressotherapy with FAR-Infrared is a 3-in-one treatment that starts with an application of a natural detoxifying and slimming body wrap, followed with 30 minutes of FAR-Infrared fat dissolving, air-pressure lymphatic drainage, and low-frequency stimulation, all at the same time.


The FAR-Infrared slimming treatment can help increase basic metabolic rate (BMR), which is the fastest and most natural way to lose weight.

As the body warms up, in addition to sweating, the blood thins and the speed at which it circulates around the body increases, while the body tries to cool itself down.

The effect is to raise the temperature at the extremities of the body to the same temperature at the core of the body  a temperature at which body fat can be broken down.

The Pressotherapy, with a set of cloth-like accessories, allows for pressure, by cycles or all-together, for both, the whole body, or specific parts of the body, increasing the venous and lymphatic flow and enhancing extra-cellular fluid clearance.

This treatment is intended to promote the body's natural toxin clearing functions. Revitalizing and oxygenating the tissues helps to slim and redefine the legs, eliminate cellulite, and enhance skin tone.


By creating an electronic pulse to stimulate special points on the body, EMS (Electro Muscle Stimulation) can effectively regulate bio-electric and endocrine systems and accelerate metabolism, creating the remarkable effect of weight loss and skin tightening.


It sounds too good to be true, right?



But it makes sense when we know the processes of the body about the elimination of wastes through sweating and urine.
And also we know the benefits of massage with pressure and muscle stimulation .
For these reasons, we dare to say that there is no full-fat-loss regimen that does not include pressotherapy.
