As a result, healing processes speed up, skin condition and look improves. Lipolytic activity of carbon dioxide is connected to its partial transformation into carbon acid which dissolves fat cells. Additionally, increased blood supply leads to increased lymphatic drainage of a cured area, fastening metabolism and eliminating released fat.
Carbo dioxide is injected under skin with a narrow needle by the use of a special device CARBOMED with a medical certification. Additionally, thanks to the possibility of regulation of flow and temperature of injected carbon dioxide, the treatment is almost painless. While CO2 injection, you can only experience an unpleasant feeling of stretching under the skin.
