Carboxytherapy for Dark Circles

  • Carboxytherapy can dramatically improve the appearance of dark undereye circles.
  • Dark undereye circles are sometimes caused by darkened pigment or a hollow depression below the lower eyelids
  • However…poor circulation beneath the eyelids (vascular pooling) is a major cause for dark undereye cirlces
  • Poor circulation can be the result of congestion in the capillary network. Normally tears drain from the eyelids into the nose, but there can be an obstruction.
  • This obstruction can be due to chronic nasal congestion from seasonal allergies, previous nasal fracture, or a deviated septum…
  • This results in bad drainage and the blood flow to the lower eyelids becomes sluggish…giving rise to the boggy blue tinge…sometimes called panda eyes…
  • The lack of appropriate oxygenation to the lower eyelid skin allows the bluish cast to show through the thin skin of the eyelids.
  • Carboxytherapy works to improve the capillary network of the lower eyelids…as well as to increase the dermal collagen layer in the lower eyelid skin
  • By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas just beneath the skin of the lower eyelid, blood flow is increased and improved capillary networks are formed for longer lasting circulatory benefit.
  • The treatment takes only five minutes, and is virtually painless and risk-free.
  • The bluish cast is replaced with a healthy pink tone.
  • A series of 2-6 treatments spaced one week apart is all that is required to achieve a great result.
  • Once a series of treatments is completed, the skin has a more luminous appearance that lasts approximately six months.
