One of the most innovative skin rejuvenation procedures around is carboxy therapy, or carbon dioxide therapy. With this nonsurgical procedure, a trained professional, at Inland Empire plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers' Sheer Beauty location, will inject a small amount of carbon dioxide gas beneath the skin’s surface to increase and improve blood circulation. Since poor blood circulation is responsible for cellulite, stretch marks, under eye circles, and hypertrophic (raised) scars, carboxy therapy can improve the appearance of these conditions. The procedure stimulates collagen, improves skin elasticity, destroys localized fatty deposits, and more. Best of all, there are no known complications associated with carboxy therapy.
"Had my lips done Saturday Amber was amazing she was gentle and very professional I definitely recommend her loving my new lips thanks Amber."- L.N. / Yelp / Oct 18, 2016
"I have been wanting to do something about the "bags" under my eyes for years, so when we moved to Upland, I was excited to see that there was a medical skin spa right near our new home. I made an appointment for a consultation just to see what they could do for me. From the second I walked in, I knew that I would be back again! First off, the little reception/waiting area is pink and feminine and beautiful and the ladies at the front desk are so welcoming and kind. Not in a fake way, but genuinely warm and friendly (which is very rare these days)! Amazing ambiance. There's an assortment of yummy beverages (including wine!) and lots of great magazines and pretty things to look at. Secondly, they listen to you! They work with your schedule to make an appointment for a (free!) consultation with the appropriate person and their hours are incredible! I'm a SAHM and can only go when my hubby is home from work (nights and weekends) so their hours really work for me! Thirdly, the consultation was incredibly informative. I spoke with a beautiful woman named Amber and she answered all my questions about my undereyes and recommended Juvederm for me: 1/4 syringe under each eye and the rest in my lips! Score!! I learned that my "bags" aren't bags at all, but the thinning of my facial features with age and time. She was patient with my hesitations and talked to me like a friend. She instantly put me at ease. I couldn't wait to make an appointment. Fourthly, on the day of my appointment, they took me back quickly and spread a numbing cream on my face, let it sit, and I was good to go! She even called Dr. Childers via FaceTime so I could ask him any questions before the procedure! Talk about customer service! I was so impressed. And finally, Amber was so great with the injections, they didn't even hurt and she would ask me to look in the mirror frequently to see the results, which were instant!! Amber really is an artist with that syringe!! I was so happy with the change. It's now the next day and I have no swelling or bruising, Amber is very skilled and knows exactly what she is doing. I am incredibly happy with how my face looks now, I look rested and youthful again, but still like myself. I cannot wait to go back and get Botox from Amber, and I plan to get touch ups as needed in the future. If anyone asks, I'm sending them your way, Sheer Beauty!! THANK YOU!!!"- E.L. / Yelp / May 13, 2017

What to Expect
Carboxy therapy will be administered into the body via a fine needle. A special machine with a carbon dioxide gas tank will send the gas through plastic tubing. The medical professional can determine how much gas is needed and regulate the exact amount dispensed. Through the fine needle, the gas will enter the body to provide therapeutic purposes. The therapy is especially useful after other cosmetic procedures and is commonly used for the face, including the eyelids, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. There should be little discomfort associated with the procedure.
After a treatment, a patient should experience:
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin elasticity and firmness
- More even skin tone and texture
- Increased collagen production
- Lessened areas of fatty deposits
- Improved circulation
For the best results, multiple treatments are recommended. Most patients can achieve maximum benefits with anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments. They can be spaced about 1 week apart.
