Scalp Carboxytherapy

The action of nature, the power of technology - discover carboxytherapy for the scalp.

Hair loss is a problem that affects most of the population, regardless of gender and age. As a result of progressive environmental changes and genetic conditions, the condition can be encountered in many people. Hair loss is therefore a serious concern that proper diet and supplementation cannot always handle.

Fortunately, there is an innovative scalp carboxytherapy treatment that is based on the use of carbon dioxide. The therapy involves applying this gas to the patient’s subcutaneous tissue, using a special device. As a result, the vessels get better blood supply and oxygenation, which in turn results in better nourishment. In turn, the scalp improves microcirculation and accelerates the process of cell regeneration, including collagen. Patients can therefore enjoy slowed hair loss and regrowth of new baby hair.

Scalp Carboxytherapy

What is scalp carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy of the scalp is an innovative method of combating the problem of excessive hair loss and thinning. The use of medical carbon dioxide and its application to the scalp by a trichologist using a fine needle allows to stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, intensely stimulate metabolism, improve micro- and macro-circulation and improve skin elasticity. Such action guarantees intensive nourishment of hair follicles and hair roots, as well as stimulation of empty hair follicles to produce new hair. The result is the inhibition of excessive hair loss and the growth of new hair.

Carboxytherapy is a minimally invasive method, natural and 100% safe. The procedure is performed using a modern, special medical device. An experienced trichologist additionally guarantees safety.

On the other hand, the latest technology of heating carbon dioxide in the carboxytherapy treatment makes the therapy painless, does not require any preparation from the Patient, and immediately after the treatment, you can return to daily activities.

Also noteworthy is the fact that scalp carboxytherapy can be used both as a stand-alone treatment and in combination with other techniques. It gives great results when combined with needle mesotherapy or platelet-rich plasma. As a result, patients can enjoy inhibition of hair loss and stimulation of hair growth.

Carbocription, which involves injecting medical carbon dioxide under the skin, causes blood vessels to dilate, improving microcirculation and stimulating hair follicles to grow. Applied subcutaneously, carbon dioxide increases blood flow, which in turn causes the release of oxygen atoms by the hemoglobin found in red blood cells. The result is strong oxygenation and nourishment of the hair follicles, the activation of cleansing and cell reconstruction processes.

Indications for surgery

Carboxytherapy treatment can be performed as an adjunct in the treatment of various types of alopecia – including androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata. It is also used in the treatment of hair loss of various causes (stress, hormonal disorders), and as a treatment that accelerates hair regrowth or to improve the condition of hair. It is also a solution for those with thin, thinning hair.

Contraindications to the procedure

It is worth remembering that scalp carboxytherapy treatment, like any other, has certain contraindications to its implementation. These include. Pregnancy and breastfeeding, cancer, cancerous diseases, respiratory and lung diseases, or heart and circulatory diseases. Doctors will also not undertake the procedure in cases of active liver disease, phlebitis and those suffering from Willebrand’s disease and hemophilia. The procedure is also not performed in patients with advanced anemia, epilepsy, glaucoma and herpes. The therapy also cannot be performed in people who are taking anticoagulants, anticoagulants, anti-inflammatory drugs, immunosuppressants and aesthetic treatments (up to 3 weeks after the procedure).

How to prepare for a carboxytherapy treatment?

Carboxytherapy scalp treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) injections to improve the appearance of the skin. It can be used to reduce cellulite, stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and to improve the overall condition of the skin. Like any cosmetic procedure, carboxytherapy requires some preparation. Here are some steps that can help you prepare for this procedure:

  1. Consultation with a doctor or specialist: The first step is always a consultation with the doctor or cosmetologist who will perform the procedure. During this consultation, you should discuss your goals and expectations, learn more about the procedure itself and potential side effects, and ask any questions you may have.
  2. Health assessment: Before the carboxytherapy treatment, it is necessary to assess the state of health. The procedure may not be suitable for people with certain health conditions, such as heart disease, kidney failure, pregnancy, or certain skin diseases.
  3. Avoid certain medications and supplements: Medications and supplements can affect your reaction to the procedure. First and foremost, you should avoid anticoagulants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for a few days before surgery unless otherwise instructed by your doctor.
  4. Maintaining healthy skin: Preparing the skin for treatment is important. Try to keep your skin clean and moisturized, while avoiding the sun and tanning beds. A few days before the procedure, forgo intense scrubs that can irritate the skin.
  5. Schedule time for recovery: After carboxytherapy, the skin may be mildly irritated, red or swollen. Mostly it doesn’t take long, but it’s a good idea to schedule a day or two to rest after the procedure.
  6. Be prepared for the sensations during the procedure: You may experience slight discomfort or burning during the procedure. This is normal, but it is useful to know about it so that you are not surprised.
  7. Follow the recommendations after the procedure: After the procedure, it is important to follow all recommendations of your skin care specialist. This can include avoiding the sun and using UV sunscreens, avoiding intense exercise for several hours after treatment, using moisturizing skin creams and avoiding cosmetics that can irritate the skin.
  8. Monitoring the effects: Observe the skin after treatment and pay attention to any unexpected reactions. If you notice anything of concern, contact the doctor or specialist who performed the procedure.
  9. Series of treatments: carboxytherapy often requires a series of treatments for optimal results. Make sure you understand how many treatments you may need and how long you should wait between them.

Remember that every body is different, and the effects of carboxytherapy may vary depending on individual skin characteristics, health and age.

The course of the procedure

The scalp carboxytherapy treatment does not require any special preparation from the patient. On the day of starting therapy, it is recommended to wash your head. Before qualifying patients for carboxytherapy, the trichologist always refers them to a medical consultation, during which specialist tests are performed to help rule out possible contraindications. The doctor can also examine the patient’s scalp and assess the condition of the lesions.

The therapy is carried out with the help of special apparatus. With the help of a thin needle, carbon dioxide is injected intradermally, and its amount is adjusted individually to the patient’s needs. During the treatment, you may feel a slight sting, slight pain, itching and pushing under the skin. However, this is a temporary phenomenon that lasts for several minutes. The duration of the treatment depends on the amount of gas applied.

However, it is worth remembering that in order for the procedure to bring the expected results, the device with which it is performed must use certified medical carbon dioxide. The equipment should also be able to regulate the gas flow rate and deliver heated carbon dioxide to reduce pain.

In order to enjoy the desired effects, it is recommended to perform 8-10 treatments. The first 4 series are carried out weekly, the next 4 series every 14 days, and the next 4 series every 1 month. Doctors also perform preventive treatments every 3 months. Such selected series guarantee lasting results.

Convalescence after the procedure

After completing the therapy, the Patient should refrain from sunbathing and solarium at least 7 days after the procedure. You should also limit the use of the sauna, hot baths, jacuzzi and swimming pool. It is also recommended to stop physical exertion within 24 hours. You should also refrain from washing your head and touching the treated areas for a few days.

Scalp carboxytherapy in a nutshell

Scalp carboxytherapy is an innovative technique that involves the application of carbon dioxide under the scalp, which causes the expansion of blood vessels.
As more blood flows through the blood vessels, the skin is oxygenated and nourished.
Carbon dioxide is a completely safe gas that does not adversely affect the skin – it is neutral for the skin because the body exhales it when air is released.
The treatment works well for people who struggle with hair loss and alopecia.
The goal of carboxytherapy is to reduce alopecia and stop hair loss. The blood supply to the scalp is also improved, thanks to which the regrown hair is stronger and thicker.

The results of the treatment

Carbon dioxide, thanks to its properties, gives oxygenating and antioxidant effects. It is a physiological gas that, when injected subcutaneously, causes increased oxygenation of the surrounding tissues at the injection site. It is the result of an immediate reaction of the body that interprets the carboxytherapy process as an oxygen deficiency. In the tissues, carbon dioxide reacts with water molecules and the formation of carbonic acid lowers the pH of the surrounding tissues. As a result, the rate of gas exchange increases. Intracutaneously applied carbon dioxide also causes small vessels to widen and stimulate the production of new capillaries.

Repeating the treatment leads to the formation of new blood vessels, increased blood flow, improved blood supply as well as increased oxygenation and nourishment of the hair follicles. Increasing oxygenation in tissues, on the other hand, improves cell metabolism, increases metabolic processes and the possibilities of cell growth and reproduction. Carbon dioxide also contributes to the stimulation of regenerative processes. Injections of this gas cause skin inflammation, which increases the synthesis of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin gains regeneration and nourishment. On the other hand, lowering the ph increases the elasticity of collagen fibers. It is also worth noting that the administration of CO2 brings about a skin repair process.

The procedure itself is minimally invasive and does not require convalescence. The effects are visible after a series of treatments, the number of which is adjusted to the individual needs of the patient. The best results can be seen after 3 – 4 treatments in the form of reducing hair loss, accelerating hair growth and obtaining new regrowth, thickening of the hair shaft, and improvement of the condition of the scalp. The big advantage is the fact that carboxytherapy can be combined with needle mesotherapy and platelet-rich plasma. The trichologist always informs the patient about the possibility of combining the treatments and supplementing them with home treatment.

Immediately after the procedure, a slight bulge and redness may occur under the patient’s scalp due to the expansion of blood vessels. However, these symptoms disappear 30 minutes after the treatment.


How does scalp carboxytherapy work?

Carbon dioxide injected under the skin dilates the blood vessels, which increases blood flow to the hair follicle. More blood means more nutrients and oxygen delivered to the hair follicle, which can contribute to healthy hair growth.

Who is scalp carboxytherapy for?

Carboxytherapy of the scalp is especially recommended for people who experience hair loss, thin hair or hair growth problems. However, it is always best to consult a trichologist to assess whether you are a suitable candidate for this treatment.

How long does a scalp carboxytherapy treatment take?

Each treatment usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes, but the time may vary depending on the area being treated.

Is scalp carboxytherapy painful?

The procedure can be somewhat uncomfortable, but most patients report little discomfort during the injection. Some people may experience slight swelling or redness, which quickly subsides.
