Vital CO2 Mask

2016 April CO2 Mask Client Before AfterThe Vital CO2 Mask treatment is a topical form of Carboxytherapy and was formatted in Japan to treat serious burns and wounds in 2009. Carboxytherapy was discovered in the 1930s when it was found that the carbon dioxide (CO2) in the hot springs of France facilitated wound healing. Carboxytherapy works by releasing CO2 into treated tissue to increase circulation and blood flow to that area. This is a phenomenon that occurs naturally within the body with cellular respiration. CO2, the by-product of cellular respiration, signals the body to exchange the CO2 with oxygen (O2) by vasodilation and increased blood flow. Carboxytherapy has typically used needles to intro co2 and has been somewhat uncomfortable. But Japan recently formatted a topical method to deliver the needed CO2 which is entirely painless.

The Vital CO2 Mask can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other modalities to treat inflammatory conditions such as acne, rosacea, and melasma. The Mask can also be used to treat sun-damaged skin, enlarged pores, fine lines, and dry skin. The Vital CO2 Mask works extremely well to treat dark under eye circles that are often the result of poor circulation and venous congestion.

When treating chronic issues, the Vital CO2 Mask is done weekly in a series of 5-10 treatments and then once every 4-6 weeks for maintenance. But the treatment is completely comfortable and affordable making it accessible to everyone. And results are seen immediately without any redness or swelling, so it is a fabulous pre-event treatment as well.
