What is Carboxy?
Carboxy is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment and has changed the way in which we treat the skin within Aesthetics. It involves injections of carbon dioxide using a micro-fine needle. This gas stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the tissues, by doing so we increase cell metabolism and therefore recovery time post-treatment. The tiny injections were originally developed to reverse the effects of gangrene on the skin. The carbon dioxide injected into the skin sets off a physiological cascade that stimulates new blood vessel formation and cell repair. Today we use the same technology to increase collagen production in healthy skin.

- This gas has wonderful effects on the delicate tissue around the eyes. Clearing dark circles, softening lines and reducing puffiness.
- The gas is diffused and absorbed by the body.

- Carboxy offers minimal discomfort and no downtime, allowing you to go about your normal daily activities.

More on combination therapies at IHA
Your skin is comprised of more than one layer, so in order to treat it properly, we need to address skin concerns on all levels. This is also a great way to save time as one treatment every 4 to 6 weeks is all you need for healthy, glowing skin.
To prepare your skin we start with an AHA/BHA chemical peel or enzyme exfoliation. This helps to lift off the dead layer of the epidermis. Removing this dead layer has an indirect effect on the bottom-living layer, giving it a kick start to produce new healthy cells. This process slows down with age so it is very important not to miss out on exfoliation. Removing the build-up of dead cells will aid in better penetration for lasers and products applied to the skin afterwards. We have a wide variety of peels and exfoliators to suit all skin types and conditions.
Now that we have a nice clean ‘canvas’ we can start to add on to our treatment. We like to customize our facials for each and every client so the laser used will be determined by the therapist on the day of treatment or during a consultation.
