Carboxytherapy: The best way to treat dark circles under the eyes

Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical treatment, which consists of the therapeutic use of Carbon Dioxide Gas (CO2) administered by injections.

I’ve had a lot of success using carboxytherapy to treat dark circles under the eyes. This is a notoriously difficult area to treat, and often my patients have tried many different creams and treatments before I meet them.

What is it?

It’s a minimally invasive treatment that works by introducing carbon dioxide into the skin. Studies show that it can improve skin elasticity, boost circulation, aid collagen repair, destroy fatty deposits and help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How does it work?

I administer tiny injections to the area being treated, the carbon dioxide (in the form of gas) penetrates the skin and spreads to tissues nearby. I also massage the skin to help with distribution.

When treating dark circles I inject the CO2 gas in small amounts and under low pressure. This forces the capillaries to open, delivering more oxygen to the area and allowing for more drainage of the toxins.

Patients who undertake three – five sessions tend to see very good results.

Is it painful?

Some patients may experience a tingling sensation near the injection site, but it is not painful and this generally disappears within a matter of seconds.

As a result of the increased circulation, the area surrounding the injection site may feel warmer for 10 to 20 minutes.

Some patients (particularly those with poor lymphatic drainage) may experience a little swelling for 24hrs.

Is Carbon Dioxide safe?

Carbon dioxide is naturally produced by cells in the body. It is transported in the blood and exhaled through the lungs. It is also currently used in surgery (laparoscopy, colonoscopy).

What else can it be used for? 

  • Cellulite
  • Fat
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose skin
  • Eczema, & Psoriasis
  • Face & hand skin rejuvenation

There’s more about the history of this treatment, and it’s other uses in this article.
