Question: Is there anything you can do for cellulite and stretch mark improvement?

Answer: While both of these conditions are difficult to address, there is a combination treatment that yields very good results: combining carboxytherapy with radiofrequency and microneedling by Inmode “Morpheus 8”.

Carboxytherapy is a treatment that uses carbon dioxide in controlled doses to treat a number of aesthetic conditions. It was first discovered in 1946 in France, when physicians noticed that patients with circulation problems improved in the carbon dioxide-rich thermal waters of Royat.

If wasn’t obvious, the uses for this therapy have extended since then this ranges from from treating medical problems to its application in aesthetic medicine as an effective treatment for stretch marks, cellulite, localized fat deposits, scars, hair loss, improvement of skin laxity, wrinkles and dark circle under the eyes.

Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas that the body produces as a byproduct of respiration and cellular metabolism. As such, it is safe to use; in fact, it is used extensively in medicine every day, such as in colonoscopies and laparoscopic surgery. Carbon dioxide has no toxicity – even in elevated doses.

As a result of aging, we have decreased blood flow and oxygen delivery to the tissues. When carbon dioxide is injected into the treated area, your body detects a lack of oxygen in that area and reacts by dilating your capillaries, thereby improving blood flow and oxygen delivery. This then stimulates the fat cells and scar tissue breakdown, while simultaneously increasing collagen production. The procedure uses a small needle to infuse the carbon dioxide gas under the skin. Keep in mind that you might have to undergo a series of treatments for optimal results and so there is no downtime.

When combined, carboxytherapy with a series of “Morpheus8”, a radio frequency/micro needling device, the results are remarkable. The science behind “Morpheus8″ is that the small needles create small injuries in the layer of the skin that is responsible for repair. This means it stimulates new collagen production. Additionally, radio frequency energy is delivered to tighten the skin and also stimulate collagen. So here you have 3 technologies carboxytherapy, radiofrequency and microneedling that stimulate collagen production, break up scar tissue and fibrous bands, therefore improving pesky cellulite, stretchmarks and scars significantly.
