Carboxytherapy may be used to improve various types of scars such as
The principle of action of CO2 in scar treatment
In acne scars, injections of CO2 are able to break fibrous septae pulling down the skin surface into crater-like depressions. This breakage of fibrous trabeculae causes a softening of the scar and improvement of craters depth.
In addition to this breakage, injections lead to new collagen synthesis. This corrects the defect of the terrain beneath the scars. This action is more gradual.
Treating acne scarring involves both intradermal injections of CO2 and subcutaneous injections of CO2 gas. It is admitted that an average of 4 to 8 sessions are necessary to get optimal results. No downtime is necessary. The procedure may be painful therefore local anesthesia with numbing cream is usual.
Once scars are improved, there is usually no need to have maintenance treatments.
Traumatic and post-surgery scars
In traumatic scars or post surgery scars, carboxytherapy may be used very early after the event. The objective is to improve local vascularisation, leading to a better on-site oxygenation and a higher concentration of healing factors. In complement to these effects, of course, a delayed synthesis of collagen will also occur (softening the scar).
4 to 8 sessions are usually required to treat fresh scars. The procedure may be painful, therefore a local anesthesia is often used.
No maintenance procedure is necessary when optimal results are reached.
