Stretch Marks

Stretch marks or "striae" as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring caused by a tearing of the dermis. They appear as striated, pink or reddish streaks. They affect both men and woman and usually develop during adolescent growth, weight training, weight gain/loss, and during pregnancy.

RioBlush's CO2 Therapy dramatically improves the appearance of stretch marks. The technique consists of injecting very small amounts of medical grade CO2 gas directly into the dermis of the stretch mark to promote increased blood flow, collagen resynthesis and increased pigmentation.

Cellulite

Cellulite refers to those "orange peel" or lumpy fat bulges that occur on the thighs and buttocks of over 95% of the normal female population.

CO2 therapy can often reduce cellulite alone or when used in combination with other treatment options. The procedure consists of injecting medical-grade CO2 gas into the subcutaneous layers of skin. This has a vasodilatation effect and increases local tissue metabolism, stimulating the body's own natural lipolysis functions.

Localized Fat

Referring to those "stubborn" areas of the body that are particularly prone to holding fat. Fat storage patterns are genetic so each person is different; however, the most common places for localized fat storage in women are: hips, upper thighs, knees, and back of the arms. Whereas men tend to store fat in their lower abdominals, sides of the waist, and lower back. Both sexes tend to store fat under the chin, especially as we age.

RioBlush's Medical grade CO2 is an effective weapon against localized fat and is injected directly into the subcutaneous portion of the skin, where we store superficial fat

Scars

In much the same way that RioBlush Carboxy therapy helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks, it has also been shown to dramatically reduce post-surgical scarring. Medical-grade CO2 is injected directly into the scar tissue, which causes increased blood flow and causes the skin surrounding the scar to constrict and contract. This makes the scar itself appear narrower.
