The carboxiterapia is a great aesthetic treatment to eliminate localized fat because it is scientifically proven that it is effective in the reduction of the fold of fat after a few sessions of treatment. This treatment consists in applying a few injections of carbon dioxide gas in the belly, thighs, arms, flanks and the sides of the back, for example.
This treatment is not indicated for weight loss because it has effect on only in a localized area, and so is more suitable for people who are inside or very close to ideal weight, with body mass index up to 23. These people may look thin, but have a ‘tyre’ of fat around the belly, flanks, and triceps on the line of the bra, for example. In this way the procedure is a great strategy to improve the body contour, people apparently thin but with the volume of accumulated fat in certain parts of the body.

How it works the procedure
In carboxitherapy, the carbon dioxide gas introduced into the skin leads to increased blood flow and the microcirculation, which increases the oxygenation local, promoting cell renewal, and promotes a small lesion in the lining of the cells, which store fat, the adipocytes, the fat falls in the bloodstream and can be worn as a source of energy.
The procedure also contributes to the elimination of toxins and release of fatty acids, reducing the swelling and increases the collagen fibers that make the skin firmer, which is very efficient to combat the saggy skin.
The results of the procedure for localized fat
The results of the procedure for localized fat can be observed, on average, after the 7th treatment session. To enhance and maintain these results it is recommended to do a dietary re-education and physical exercises regularly for good maintenance of weight and cardiovascular health.
Sessions can be held 1 or 2 times per week, with duration of 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the size of the area that will be treated.
The person can get fat again?
What has been observed in scientific studies is that despite the carboxiterapia to contribute for the reduction of localized fat and reduction of the measures, the adipocytes, which are fat cells, are not fully eliminated and many can regenerate.
Thus, it is sufficient for the person to continue feeding the evil, with a diet that is rich in sugar, carbohydrates and fats, associated with a sedentary lifestyle, there may be a new fat accumulation.
This indicates that the procedure fulfills its purpose in the elimination of localized fat, but not definitively and the bad eating habits and lack of physical activity, favor fat accumulation, and therefore may seem that the treatment was not effective, but it was.
The weight and the body mass index does not change with the procedure, but the fold of fat decreases, which can be proven through exams such as ultrasound. However, so that it does not increase again, you should tailor the diet and exercise at least 3 times per week.
