About Carboxy Therapy
Carboxy therapy is a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure which utilizes carbon dioxide therapy to increase blood circulation. Since poor circulation is responsible for cellulite, stretch marks, circles beneath the eyes, and scars, this innovative technique can improve the appearance of these common skin issues. The injection of carbon dioxide beneath the surface of the skin stimulates collagen which in turn improves skin elasticity and destroys localized fatty deposits, revealing a tauter, smoother skin surface. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ben Childers of Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care, offers this procedure at three convenient locations in Redlands, Upland, and Riverside, CA.

Ideal candidates for carboxy therapy are:
- In overall good health
- At a normal, healthy body weight
- Well hydrated, with a mostly healthy diet
- Those with cellulite, stretch marks, and scars
Carboxy therapy is completed with the Carbossi machine, with simple tubing and an attached 30-gauge needle that is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue. Through this fine needle, the carbon dioxide gas will enter the treatment area. Carboxy therapy is especially beneficial following other cosmetic procedures and can be utilized in most areas of the body, including the neck/chin, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and legs. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and can be done up to twice a week. Patients report very little discomfort during the procedure.
What to Expect
Patients most commonly experience a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles following the procedure. In addition, you will likely see improved skin elasticity and firmness, as well as more even skin tone and texture. The carboxy therapy increases collagen production and decreases fatty deposits. This will improve circulation and the appearance of the skin on and around the treated area. For the best results, Dr. Childers recommends repeat treatments. Patients can receive 6 – 12 treatments per area, spaced out in one-week intervals.
