People Magazine Reports Plastic Surgery Latest Trend

People Magazine Reports Plastic Surgery Latest Trend | Brea | PasadenaAccording to a recent report in the People magazine, carbon dioxide based therapy is the latest trend in the field of cosmetic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. While the People magazine report focuses on treatment of dark under eye circles with this innovative therapy, a number of other areas can be treated equally effectively with carbon dioxide based therapy.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin strives to provide cutting edge solutions to his patients seeking cosmetic enhancement through less invasive techniques. Dr. Lin provides the new therapy called Carboxy to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and surrounding locations.


Reduction of Dark Circles under the Eye

Carboxy treatment involves injecting the soft tissue beneath the eye with carbon dioxide. This unique therapy is known to improve the blood flow in the capillaries, and restore the bluish circles back to a healthy skin tone color. The procedure, just like Botox, avoids the need for cosmetic surgery, and involves the administering of a quick needle to the under eye area.

As the carbon dioxide is delivered to the targeted dark circle points, the skin in the area will begin to puff up and swell. However, the condition will quickly return to normal in about five to 10 minutes. According to experts, when a small amount of carbon dioxide gas is injected into the targeted area, the body mechanism is triggered to increase the flow of oxygen to the area.

The red blood cells are compelled to pick up the carbon dioxide gas that was injection and carry it back to the lungs. From the lungs, the gas is eliminated with the next exhalation. Experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Lin receives patients from West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and nearby areas for the treatment of dark under eye circles.


Carboxy Therapy Benefits

In addition to the treatment of dark under eye circles, carboxy therapy can also be used for cosmetic reduction of stretch marks, cellulite appearance and scars, and also for non-surgical facial and body sculpting. Eyelids, face, neck, buttocks, abdomen, legs and arms are some of the areas where carboxy therapy can be applied effectively.

The treatment not only improves the flow of oxygenated blood in the injected areas, but also promotes the formation of new collagen in the skin. This provides sustainable firmness and volume to the skin from inside out. Results are longer lasting and more natural looking with this treatment approach.

The treatment involves no cuts or incisions, which makes it a completely safe and comfortable procedure with minimal to no downtime. Working people and busy moms can benefit the most from this procedure because they are usually reluctant to choose treatments that involve a prolonged recovery.


Number of Treatments

The total number of carboxy therapy sessions will depend on the severity of the problem and the number of areas to be treated. Six to 12 treatments spaced one week apart will usually produce desirable outcomes.
