Skin Renewal Tip

For resistant fat reduction, Carboxytherapy at high volume is introduced deep into the fat which then breaks up the fat cell and stimulates new vessels and rejuvenation.
For cellulite reduction, Carboxytherapy is introduced deep alongside the lymphatic system of the upper and lower leg to improve lymphatic drainage and circulation. Toxins that contribute to the orange peel effect are removed and collagen is stimulated. This all leads to improved texture and appearance of the cellulite

For stretch marks, traditionally a very difficult skin problem to treat, Carboxytherapy introduced into the stretch marks improves the collagen content and shrinks the stretchmark’s, improving the appearance

  • A Carboxy Mesoglow Facial is an innovative rejuvenating facial which includes the face, neck, and décolleté and consists of the following:

An Alpha Hydroxy Acid peel to the face, neck and décolleté
Our signature Anti-Ageing Mesoglow Facial which includes a cocktail of growth factors, peptides, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid to the face, neck and décolleté
Carboxytherapy rejuvenation of the eyes, face, neck, and décolleté- 16 areas included.

As we age, subcutaneous capillaries become dormant with decreasing cells of oxygen; this combined with environmental stresses and other variables, inhibits the ability of cells to regenerate and function properly and the skin slowly loses its elasticity and collagen. By the age of 30, oxygen levels in your skin drop by 25% and 50% by age 40. The body naturally gets its oxygen through basic breathing, but factors like pollution reduce the levels. The body will first utilize oxygen in the major organs and lastly, go to the skin. When the skin doesn't get enough oxygen it becomes more prone to aging, acne, redness, and irritation, and age spots. The Carboxy Mesoglow Facial resurfaces, reoxygenates, rehydrates, and tightens skin. After a series of four to six treatments visible skin rejuvenation, an open brow and sleeker jawline, neck, and décolleté can be expected all resulting from a combination of the following treatments

  • A superficial alpha-hydroxy chemical peel is a quick, no downtime procedure that renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the surface of your skin and stimulating the metabolism of the cells underneath. With a series of alpha-hydroxy chemical peels, you can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of superficial lines and uneven pigmentation, while making your skin look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant, and rehydrated. Acne scars and enlarged pores may become less noticeable, and acne breakouts may be reduced. (see Alpha Hydroxy Peel)
  • Carboxytherapy infuses CO 2 just beneath the skin’s surface; the body interprets this as an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow and growth factors such as VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) for example encourages the production of new blood vessels. This provides a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area and improves circulation, resulting in cell restoration. Increased oxygen concentration also improves the water retention or edema in the area. The treatment has no downtime and a single session can take between fifteen minutes and an hour. In short, Carboxytherapy is a simple and safe procedure for beautiful, younger-looking skin.
  • For those with a fear of needles, Transdermal Mesotherapy is the newest and most innovative technology to administer a drug solution to a patient and uses FDA approved DEEP ® technology At Skin Renewal for anti-aging benefits we use a combination of award winning growth factors , peptides, amino acids, vitamins, nucleic acids and co factors These combinations present in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen and elastin so that the dermis is strengthened thereby improving skin tone and texture. For pigmentation, patented pigmentation inhibiting peptides are used to improve hormonal pigmentation and a powerful anti oxidant Thioredoxin mops up all the free radicals thus preserving existing collagen

Typical problem areas treated are:

  • Dark Circles are improved by increasing the oxygenation of this poorly perfused area
  • Eye Bags are reduced by skin tightening and modest fat reduction (see before & after photos)
  • Crows Feet Wrinkles are reduced due to collagen stimulation
  • Hooded eyes are modestly lifted due to new collagen remodeling and contraction down the line.
  • Skin texture improves due to collagen stimulation
  • Sleep Lines are improved due to new collagen stimulation On the Face, neck, and décolleté:
  • A modest brow lift due to skin rejuvenation and tightening on the brow
  • Skin wrinkling improves due to collagen stimulation
  • Lip wrinkling improves due to collagen stimulation
  • A modest jowl lift due to skin rejuvenation and tightening on the brow
  • Crepey necks improve due to collagen stimulation ( normally a very difficult area to treat)
  • Double chin is reduced due to fat reduction and skin tightening
  • Fat or Flabby cheeks are modestly reduced due to fat reduction and skin tightening
  • Wrinkled ear lobes improve due to collagen stimulation
  • Wrinkled Décolleté rejuvenation due to collagen stimulation
  • Pigmentation is improved due to the effects of the alpha hydroxy acid peel and pigment reducing peptides present in the mesotherapy solution
  • Brightening of the skin due to collagen stimulation
  • Skin resurfacing due to the combined effects of the glycolic peel, carboxytherapy, and mesotherapy.

As one ages, the skin’s elasticity declines dramatically and gravity constantly pulls on our faces. Previously there was no alternative to surgical facelifts and eye lifts or blepharoplasties. Both areas were very difficult areas to treat non-surgically. Now with the advent of novel treatments such as the Carboxy Mesoglow facial, virtually any patient in their thirties or above can be a candidate for a little tightening and firming around the eye, brow, and jowl area and the younger the patient the better the result. Eight out of ten patients get noticeable improvement in skin laxity around the eyes after the second treatment of the Carboxy Mesoglow Facial and most will see an improvement in skin color, luminosity, and texture.

In addition, for those patients who are nervous about the effects of Botox®, new technologies such as Carboxy Mesoglow Facial offer an alternative to rejuvenation and improvement of crow’s feet and a more open-eyed expression.

There are different types of skin and we all age differently. No matter how well we look after our skin, the inevitable ageing will take place. One can maintain the “perfect skin” by keeping one’s skin firm and taught with collagen to avoid the inevitable sagging that takes place over time. Tighter, firmer skin supports the face and prevents the other soft tissues in our face and the muscles from sagging.

The new concept today is to start with rejuvenation treatments Carboxy Mesoglow Facials as soon as possible so as to avoid or postpone surgical solutions for as long as possible. 4-6 treatments are needed 2 to 4 weeks apart. At least one yearly cycle is recommended.

At Skin Renewal the Carboxy Mesoglow Facial is our signature non-surgical laser facelift for the best non-surgical face lifting results

Separately each clinical application presents a powerful solution for the most in-demand, fastest-growing procedures with no downtime. This combination is one of the most widely used and most effective methods of achieving a significant aesthetic improvement which includes the face, neck, and décolleté.

During the treatment, the Carboxy treatment can be likened to a dull throb or pressure. This mild discomfort lasts 2 to 4 minutes. CO2 is 20 times more soluble than oxygen and it is easily and quickly diffused from the injection site to the surrounding tissue. After treatment, the gas is totally reabsorbed within 5 minutes and the treated area will raise, turn slightly red as oxygen perfused into the area.

After the procedure, there is no pain, just possibly a crackling sensation under the skin that lasts until the gas is excreted. The area should not be in the water for about 4 hours. The only side effect is that mild bruising can occur if one hits a vessel with the needle. However, this only happens in around two percent of patients. Patients can return to work immediately after treatment, a truly walk-in, walk-out procedure.

Typically, on the face 4 to 6 treatments of Carboxy Mesoglow Facial sessions are required. Clients have a 60-minute session every 2 to 4 weeks and each treatment is accumulative. Maintaining beauty isn't a sprint-it's a marathon. Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way and a touch-up session every 6 to 8 months should maintain anti-aging results.

With Carboxy Mesoglow Facials, the prospects of luminous skin, a more defined eye area, a sleeker jawline, and an open brow area are all now possible but this usually comes at a price. At Skin Renewal, we have recognized this problem and have come up with a customized solution to make it more affordable for the average person by combining the Carboxy Mesoglow Facial in an affordable package over a period of time.

After a medical consultation, every client is provided with a fully customized yearlong solution dependent on the patient’s age, relevant skin problem, budget, and expectations. The effects of each treatment are accumulative meaning that the results of each previous treatment are improved with each additional treatment and the best results come down the line when new collagen that is stimulated remodels and a further tightening effect is noticed.

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.

Carboxy Mesoglow Facial safely treats all skin types without significant pain or downtime. It can erase years off one’s face and is one of the most effective methods of achieving a significant aesthetic improvement within 2 to 6 months when the effects of collagen stimulation and remodeling become evident. A medical consultation prior to treatment is essential.

The popular Carboxy Mesoglow Facial helps prolongs the effects of injectable fillers and Botox ®. Treatments are administered 10 days after the Botox injections. At Skin Renewal, with a Carboxy Mesoglow Facial every 2 weeks, in 3 months we can take any skin and make it into almost perfect skin: luminous, smooth, blemish-free and tight.
