3 Reasons CO2 Carboxy Therapy is a Must-Have in your Beauty Salon

By 2024-03-22April 8th, 2024No Comments

What began as an accidental discovery in France in the 1930s is now a must-have in beauty salons and spas around the world. A bunch of people who bathed in carbon rich pools then observed quick wound healing with better blood circulation – a historical discovery that paved the way for an innovative treatment called Carboxy therapy.

While traditional Carboxy Therapy works by injecting CO2 into the target area of the skin, RIBESKIN R&D team’s pursuit of a more convenient procedure led to the creation of the original RIBESKIN PRO CO2 Carboxy Therapy in 2007. It is the first non-invasive CO2 Carboxy Therapy product for clinics and hospitals in Korea. With a FDA (USA) and CPNP (EU) certification among others, this treatment is today trusted by over 300 million industry professionals from 38 countries, making it unanimously a must-have treatment across beauty salons and spas.

The treatment consists of a gel and sheet both available in bulk sizes that allow for upto 25 or 50 treatments, making it convenient for salons of any size. Now let’s dive right into the 3 reasons why RIBESKIN CO2 Carboxy Therapy is a Must-Have in your Beauty Salon.

1. Non-invasive and Convenient

To understand how non-invasive CO2 therapy works its magic on your skin, let’s dive into the principles of the Bohr Effect. A simple way to remember this 3-step principle is


After applying the CO2 gel across the face or body, as you press the mask or sheet down, carbon dioxide gets absorbed by the skin cells.

As CO2 enters the blood vessels, it induces hemoglobin in the red blood cells to release oxygen.

iii) BOOST
As more oxygen gets supplied across the skin, it stimulates blood circulation, metabolism, protein synthesis and disposal of skin waste.


2. Effective for Diverse Uses 

Although CO2 was initially developed to treat wounds, today CO2 therapy is a complete body care treatment used for a wide range of skin solutions like reducing stretch marks, cellulite, acne and inflammation while enhancing skin tone, elasticity and oil & moisture balance.

Given its effectiveness in reducing subcutaneous fat or in other words, the fat visible just under the skin, CO2 therapy is used in achieving a slimmer body line with enhanced skin elasticity. With the increased movement of oxygen in the blood vessels, it promotes effective removal of unnecessary tissue fluid and waste, thereby alleviating swelling, puffiness and loose, lumpy skin caused by dietary habits. Clinical evidence shows a significantly increased rate of skin elasticity in just 4 weeks, solidifying people’s belief in this treatment.

Additionally, the effects of CO2 Therapy in skin brightening are clinically proven to be seen right from the first treatment, with a visibly brighter skin tone, giving your clients the confidence to come back for more.

Apart from its use for reducing post pregnancy stretch marks by stimulating collagen and elastin, what makes CO2 Therapy stand out from other treatments is that it is safe to be used during pregnancy with no reported side effects. This is owing to its non-invasive nature and minimal stimulus on skin.


3. Booster for Other Procedures

Performing CO2 Therapy right before procedures like laser, mesotherapy, acne extraction, peeling (except acid based peeling) multi-needling, IPL, fraxel, plasma and lipolysis increases the effectiveness of said procedures. It also opens up the skin to allow better absorption of the ampoules applied on skin after. This provides an opportunity for you to combine CO2 Therapy with relevant treatments as per your client’s skin concerns, thereby elevating the overall impact on their skin.

Based on your target concern, there are methods to increase the efficiency of this therapy by combining it with the right kind of lymphatic massages. Explore the specific tips and lessons exclusively on RIBESKIN e-Academy to elevate the impact of your treatment.

Choosing the Right Before & After Care 

For any treatment to show its maximum effect, choosing the right before & after care is absolutely necessary. In the case of RIBESKIN CO2 Carboxy Therapy, the RIBESKIN CO2 Booster AHA 1% Cleanser plays a crucial role in deep cleansing the skin before the procedure. While AHA 1.0% helps prepare the skin for an improved CO2 gas penetration, skin-protecting agents like panthenol, mimosa extract and oat extract avoids stripping away moisture and soothes irritated skin.

Similarly, after wiping away excess CO2 gel from the face or body, applying the RIBESKIN CO2 After Care Soothing Gel & Mask ensures your body gets the right soothing care with ingredients like Centella Asiatica Extract, allantoin and snail secretion filtrate along with EGF, a growth factor that aids in skin recovery.
