Carboxytherapy employs injections to infuse gaseous carbon dioxide beneath the skin into the subcutaneous tissues. The procedure begins with the connection of a tank of CO2 gas to a flow regulator. The gas is emitted through the flow regulator into sterile tubing that has a filter at the end. The filter picks up any impurities before they reach the body. The gas runs through a very small needle on the opposite side of the filter. The procedure stimulates circulation and collagen production which improves the appearance of the skin.
