How long does the procedure take?

How long do the results last?
The effects of carboxytherapy can last up to 6 months.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure is only mildly uncomfortable.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the goal of the treatment; for facial lines or dark circles, 3-6 sessions are normally suitable; cellulite treatment can take up to 20 sessions. Your non-surgical practitioner will be able to advise you on the number of treatments required.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas) and do not submerge the area in water for 6 hours after treatment. There may be some bruising in the area so you may want to consider this if you are planning trips away or special days.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Depending on the results you are trying to achieve, other treatments may be helpful. Your non-surgical practitioner and our coordinators will be able to guide you as to the best treatments for the results you are trying to achieve.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
Are your practitioners suitably qualified and registered?
All of our practitioners are registered with relevant professional bodies and are hold all required specialist qualifications. Please feel free to ask your practitioner about his or her experience and qualifications; they understand and support that this is vital information to your decision making process.
