The Miracle Gas - Reduce Dark Circles & Fine Lines aroung eyes.
CO2 RioJuvenation Therapy is one of the latest procedures that EMC introduced for the treatment of dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. CO2 ReJuvenation System gradually administers controlled amounts of sterile, medical-grade carbon dioxide via microinjections just beneath the surface of the skin.
How Does CO2 Rejuvenation Therapy work?
The introduction of CO2 into the dermis results in vasodilation, as the body attempts to correct what it considers an imbalance in the O2/ CO2 balance. The increased blood flow creates a surge of oxygen and nutrients, which fosters cell and collagen restoration and reduction of localized adipose.
How CO2 Rejuvenation system administered?
The CO2 RioJuvenation System gently introduces small amounts of sterile, medical-grade CO2 via a 0.3mm needle. The gas can be set to flow continuously or in pulses from 0 to 150 ml/mn, and the temperature of the gas can be adjusted from room temperature to 50 degrees celsius. Treatments take from 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the area and type of condition being treated.
Is carbon dioxide harmful or toxic?
A natural by-product of respiration, CO2 is present in every cell in the body. RioJuvenation introduces very small amounts of gas. By contrast, medical procedures like colonoscopy and laparoscopy introduce thousands of times more volume of CO2 to the body with no adverse effects. Some patients may experience mild discomfort; most patients report a “tingling” sensation, followed by a ‘pleasant warmth”.
What should a patient avoid after treatment?
RioJuvenation therapy requires no recovery time. As a precaution following treatment it is recommended that patients avoid strenuous physical activity for 2 hours and submerging in water for 4 hours.
How many treatments required to achieve good result?
The therapy requires, on average, between 4 and 12 treatments, on a monthly basis (depending on the condition and area being treated).Most people observe improvement after the first treatment, though it usually takes up to one month for the body to properly react to the process.
How long do the benefits last?
Effects can be very long-lasting but CO2 ReJuvenation doesn’t arrest the aging process. Regular maintenance treatments will extend the benefits of the treatment.
