    Carboxytherapy for Hair Loss Results

    Treatment of hair loss with carboxytherapy is normally done every 15 days. Results are typically visible after the 2nd session of treatment. Hair in the area of treatment becomes thicker, and new strands will start to appear, resulting in the filling in of the area. As the treatment progresses result should be even more noticeable.

    Does Carboxytherapy Hurt?

    Due to the scalp's high pain sensitivity, injections made into it would be quite painful. As a result a topical analgesic about 30 to 40 minutes before the carboxytherapy session is usually used to numb the pain. After the analgesic is applied there should be minimal discomfort.

    Risks and Cost

    When the technique is used correctly, carboxytherapy is risk free. The price of each session ranges from $150-$500 depending on the clinic.
