For Vanity's Sake


We all know that stretchmarks is the first the "badge of honor" of mothers and I'm very honorable (LOL) because my tummy was fully stretched 7 years ago. I tried lots of creams, lotions and oils just to improve the appearance of my skin. The marks are lighter now but are still very wrinkled and visible.

Then I saw the 75% off coupon for Carbossi Therapy on BeeEconomic and my hope to improve the skin on my tummy went alive once more. Of course I researched first on what Carbossi Therapy / Carboxytherapy is all about and how it can lessen the signs of aging, cellulites, sagging skin and stretchmarks.

"Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas [CO2] for therapeutic purposes."

"Studies have demonstrated that carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys localized fatty deposits."

"There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy. Carbon dioxide injection."

Stretchmarks appears when the collagen in our skin are ruptured. The injection of carbon dioxide directly to the stretchmarks stimulates collagen formation thus improving the elasticity and appearance of the affected part of the skin.

My take on the treatment:
It is painful. The syringe will be injected into the stretchmark and the carbon dioxide will flow from the needle to the skin. During the first injections, I felt dizzy because of the pain but after a while I got used to the feeling.

It is also good thing that the therapist in Total Skin Care Center is talking to me non-stop during the procedure. Our conversation made me shift my focus away from the pain and into the things we talked about. The procedure took only 30 minutes. Will I go back? Yes, for my Vanity's sake.

What products for stretchmarks have you tried? Did they work?

Are you willing to try Carboxytherapy?

Blessed be,
