How carboxy therapy in London treatment can help you

Our bodies naturally produce CO2, but when injected directly into specific areas, it can encourage an increased flow of oxygen, improving circulation. The increase in oxygen underneath scarred or darkened skin from Carboxy injections for the face and body can enhance blood circulation and new cell production. This helps to improve the texture and brighten the skin on the treated areas. In addition to restoring your skin to a more natural colour, using Carboxy Therapy for the face also works to reduce inflammation, further enhancing the results of the treatment. When looking at carboxy therapy before and after you’ve had treatment, you’ll see noticeable results immediately.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Is Carbody Therapy in London safe?

Carboxy Therapy for the eyes and body is safe, minimally invasive and does not involve any downtime. Our clinics provide a safe and sterile environment, accompanied by a professional, warm, and friendly welcome. In our clinics, Carboxy Therapy treatment is only ever carried out by a fully qualified Nurse.

Depending on the concerns you are looking to treat, our highly experienced medical staff will discuss all the suitable options and determine whether Carboxy Therapy is the most suitable solution for your individual needs.

Carboxy Therapy before and after - what happens during treatment?

Carboxy injections for the face and body involve a series of small injections with a very fine needle performed to a specific area of concern. CO2 is injected under the skin to encourage the flow of oxygen-filled red blood cells. These cells disperse their oxygen to the problem area and then absorb the injected CO2. As part of our normal bodily functions, the cells then carry the CO2 back to the lungs where breathing naturally exhales it from the body.

Only a qualified Nurse can carry out Carboxy face treatments and body treatments and, depending on the area to be treated, the Carboxy facial treatment process can take between 15 – 45 minutes.

Carboxy Therapy in London FAQs

What is Carboxy Therapy and how does it work?

Carboxy Therapy in London, also known as Rioblush, is the injection of CO2 in the areas of the body you want to treat. Once the carbon dioxide has been injected, the red blood cells carry oxygen to the area, picking up the carbon dioxide which you then breathe out naturally. Oxygen stays in the area of the fat and produces collagen, helping to dispose of fat cells which are then naturally disposed of through your lymphatic system.

Scars, stretch marks, dark circles and cellulite are believed to be partly caused by poor blood-flow to the specific body area. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas into the problematic areas, we are tricking the body into increasing the oxygen flow to the area by compelling the red blood cells to pick up the excess CO2 injected and send it to the lungs for exhalation. In addition, Carboxy injections for the face and body enhance the production of new collagen, enabling the restoration of the skin damage.

Is Carboxy Therapy safe?

There are no known risks associated with Carboxy injections for the face or body. It is an entirely safe treatment due to the fact that CO2 occurs naturally.

How many treatments will I need?

Your Practitioner will assess the number of treatments you should have, according to your skin condition. Usually, a course of 6 treatments is recommended.

How long does carboxy therapy last?

How long carboxy therapy lasts will depend on the area and concern you wish to treat, the number of treatments you undergo and whether you return for maintenance. Carboxy injections for the face and body can have better lasting results after a full course of treatment where the skin can get to a healthy stage of rejuvenation.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
