At Skin Renewal, hundreds of Carboxy Mesoglow facials have been safely performed. The methods and indications for performing the Carboxy Mesoglow Facial have changed since the introduction of medical protocols and intensive in-house training at Skin Renewal. Innovative built-in safety devices of the CE-approved CDT machine also ensure the safety of each procedure. A professional team lead by a doctor does the initial consultation to evaluate whether the patient has any contraindications for doing a Carboxy Mesoglow Facial. Certain pre-existing medical conditions are precluded from having a Carboxytherapy and Transdermal procedure and thus it is essential to have a doctor’s consultation before the treatment.
The discomfort has decreased because the gas is heated during the procedure and all unwanted air is drained, as an important additional safety precaution. Because CO2 is non-embolic, it is very safe if done with the correct protocols and a pre-treatment medical consultation with a doctor. Carbon dioxide is a natural by-product of the body and is not toxic even in elevated doses.
After treatment, the gas is totally reabsorbed within 5 minutes and the area treated returns to normal. Widely distributed in Europe and South America, Carboxytherapy has been used safely and effectively on 30 000 + patients with no complications against conditions as persistent and difficult to treat such as cellulite, psoriasis, diabetic ulcers, venous insufficiency, and stretch marks.
Carboxytherapy has safely been used for many years and in thousands of patients in laparoscopic operations where large volumes of CO2 are used to insufflate the abdomen. The dosage utilized for aesthetic and therapeutic treatment is less than 100cc/min and does not exceed more than 1,000cc of CO2.
In normal physiology, our cells produce CO2 as a by-product of cellular respiration, the process of breaking down sugars or fats with oxygen.
