New Trend – Carboxy Treatment for Dark Circles
It seems that the craze for aesthetic improvement has no limits. A new trend is rising now with a Carboxytherapy treatment for dark circles. How is this treatment carried out? The surgeon injects carbon dioxide in the soft tissue underneath the eye. The effect of carbon dioxide is to change bluish circles in its previous healthy condition. This procedure is called Carboxy.
While an injection is involved we could parallelize this process with Botox. The injection of CO2 swells and puffs up the area under the eye but according to experts (like Dr. Lisa Zdinak, one of the first to introduce Carboxy to USA) this swelling won’t last more than 5 to 10 minutes
Dr. Zdinak states: “By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the area, we are ‘tricking’ the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up all of the excess CO2 that we injected so that it can be carried back to the lungs for elimination from the body with the next exhalation”.
Other doctors notice that there is no data for long-lasting effect of this procedure and this is why the famous Botched Series Star and surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow doesn’t recommend it. Dr. Dubrow says: “There is no scientific evidence that the instillation of carbon dioxide gas into subcutaneous tissues has any real, significant or long lasting effects on local tissue” and adds “There is certainly no known cosmetic benefits to placing CO2 gas under the eye area and I would caution against any experimentation in an area where sensitive structures that provide vital functions like eyesight are concerned. That’s a big no from the Botched doctors.”
