What is Carboxytherapy?

This treatment uses CO2 gas and could be just the solution you’ve been searching for! If you are troubled by dark circles under your eyes, Carboxytherapy offers a refreshing solution to brighten and rejuvenate your eye area, giving you that well-rested, youthful look. But that’s not all – it’s also incredibly effective in improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. Imagine smoother, more even-toned skin where you want it most. Additionally, this therapy works wonders in tightening the skin, providing an overall more youthful and firm appearance.

The results of this therapy typically start to show after just the 2nd or 3rd session within a short 4–6-week programme. While you may experience some bruising post-treatment, which is quite normal and subsides within 3-7 days depending on the treated area and your skin’s sensitivity, many find this a small inconvenience for the significant benefits Carboxytherapy offers.

The Procedure

Prior To Treatment

Carboxytherapy, like any other injectable therapy, requires the correct candidate with a medical history that allows us to perform this Co2 therapy. We recommend avoiding blood-thinning drugs and medications, if possible, 48 hours before the treatment. Everything will be explained in detail over the face-to-face consultation.


Depending on what area you are treating, for example, eyes for dark circle rejuvenation, the body for stretch mark reduction or the face for a skin tightening collagen boost session, Carboxy is injected into the area using a small needle. This will inflate the area, creating a trauma allowing collagen and blood flow to come and do its magic. There may be some bruising. There will be no discomfort once treatment is over, just a slight redness.

After Treatment

You will feel some tingling sensation, and some patients may experience tenderness in the area for about 2 to 3 days. Bruising is very common due to the nature of the treatment, but overall, it is what we call a lunchtime procedure; the downtime is minimal. We recommend staying away from the gym and outdoor activities for 48 hours and avoiding high heat temperatures such as sauna, steam room, hot bath, and hot shower for 48 hours.

What To Expect

Carboxytherapy is performed using a small needle and a co2 gas. There is a slight stinging sensation when the gas is administered into the area to be treated. The skin inflates a little but will go down almost straight away. Bruising may occur, and mild redness. Treatment time is between 20-60mins depending on the area treated.

Cannot rate this clinic highly enough. From initial booking and greeting from Carly who is always so lovely and accommodating, through to the treatment with Flavio. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my face. He takes time and pride in his procedures. He makes you feel so special as a patient, he shares advice, he makes you feel safe and talks through everything with you. You leave feeling so confident in your appearance. Flavio’s work is unmatched, truly an artist and a magician.

Lovely welcoming clinic,Carly and Marina are fabulous, and I always feel like I am given the best service. I will be back for more treatments soon
I had a fabulous deep cleanse facial by Marina and it was spectacular. Amazing results and just what I needed at the end of a holiday! I’ve been to the clinic on a few occasions for this facial and each time it has been the best! It is the only clinic I will go to for a deep cleanse facial as it has demonstrated better results than any other clinic I’ve been to. Marina did my first ever facial at CF so I was thrilled to have another appointment with her! I really appreciated the time and care she put into my facial. I love how the extraction process doesn’t cause much redness, so when you are leaving the clinic your face isn’t blotchy or painful.

I’ve been coming to clinica Flore for a few years now and I honestly couldn’t recommended them enough. Always a warm welcome from the team Carly and Marina. The treatment is thoroughly professional and sorts out my chronic rosacea everytime, it’s a 10 out of 10 from me.

Before going in for my HIFU treatment I did some reading about the procedure, particularly about the side effects. One that had me a bit worried was being blotchy and red as I do have sensitive skin. However, Flavio was so gentle that I didn’t experience any redness after the treatment or pain during the procedure. Their staff is so friendly from the minute you call them to book an appointment to them performing the procedure. They update you with every step of the process so that you are aware of what they are doing to your face. I highly recommend their services they have indeed impressed me and I can’t wait for my next appointment with them. #HappyClient

I have been to other clinics and it is the first time the staff has been amazing, they showed they are actually passionate for what they do and they do care for the patients. I am over the moon with the treatments I received, I can say I’ve got incredible results. Definitely going back to Fiore for future treatments, and highly recommend it. Thank you so much Flavio, truly appreciate your commitment!
Great combination of the new and improved HIFU and new skin pen with ultrasound! Both treatments combined have massively improved the skin texture and lifting of facial contours, not even 24 downtime and virtually painless in my case, loved it! Would definitely recommend this combo or even as separate treatments as I did see big improvements on each session! Also the clinic is always at such high standards and always immaculately presented! Thank you, will be back!


Is Carboxytherapy painful?

Carboxytherapy can be a little uncomfortable when performed on the body for fat or cellulite reduction; some patients don’t find it painful.

It is painless when performed as dark circles reduction.

After a Carboxytherapy treatment, there may be some mild puffiness if having the eyes treated and slight redness, which will subside within 24 hours.

After a body treatment for stretch marks or cellulite, you may be red and sometimes a little swollen and usually subsides after 24 hrs.

When treating for stretch marks and cellulite, bruising is quite common due to the sensitive nature and style of Carboxy that needs to be performed to get results. We recommend an arnica gel to help the downtime or arnica tablets before treatment.

Carboxytherapy is considered to be a lunchtime procedure with minimum downtime. So yes, you can go back to work straight after your treatment.

But please remember that bruising is always possible when using a needle during your treatment. Make-up can be used to hide the bruise.

You can find Carboxytherapy treatments at our clinic based in Covent Garden, London. Give us a call today to make your booking!
