Carboxy Gel FAQ's

Carboxy Gel is available in either a facial or body kit. The facial kit can be used on the face, neck, hands and décolleté to remove lines, wrinkles, lighten pigmentation, remove dark circles under the eyes, help clear acne and firm up the skin under the neck. The body kit is used for smoothing out stretch marks and cellulite dimpling. Use on the upper arms to help firm the skin.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Carboxy Gel kit contains a gel and an activating cloth. When the activating cloth is placed over the gel it generates Carbon Dioxide bubbles. These are the same bubbles found in soda pop. The bubbles act to smooth stretch marks and cellulite dimpling in the skin.

IS THE TREATMENT SAFE?
Carboxy Gel can be used safely anywhere on the body and the gel can be used on all skin types.
There is no discomfort or down time from the Carboxy treatment. During the treatment you will feel tingling from bubbles against the skin. You may also have some temporary skin flushing that will last about a half hour.

HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT AND HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Treatments take 20 – 30 minutes after you put the gel on and cover the gel with an activating cloth. Treatments can be done twice a week for 3 weeks.

Your skin will start to improve in texture and tone immediately. The stretch marks and cellulite will take 2 – 3 weeks before you start to see a steady improvement.

Many stretch mark and cellulite conditions show improvement in just one series of 5 treatments. Every ones condition is different and some skin may require additional treatments to reach your desired goal. You can purchase extra kits of 5 treatments if needed.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST FOR?
Your stretch marks results will last for years. New weight gain or pregnancies can create new cellulite or stretch marks. Cellulite treatment results will last up to a year.
