During a Co2 facial, a small amount of medical-grade Co2 gas is injected into the skin using a thin needle. The gas stimulates blood flow, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells, and triggers the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. This can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Co2 facials are typically performed in a series of sessions, with each session lasting between 15 and 30 minutes. The number of sessions required may vary depending on the individual’s skin type and the severity of their skin concerns.
Co2 facials are generally considered safe, but as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the injection site. It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of Co2 facials with a qualified healthcare provider or licensed aesthetician before undergoing treatment.
