New study shows carboxytherapy effective in treating periorbital hyperpigmentation

Posted on

Carboxytherapy shows promise as an effective and safe treatment for periorbital hyperpigmentation, according to a study.

The study aimed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of carboxytherapy in treating periorbital hyperpigmentation. Over a 4-week period, 20 patients with symmetric periorbital hyperpigmentation underwent weekly intradermal carboxytherapy sessions. During these sessions, 10-20 mL of CO2 was administered at a controlled rate and temperature. Follow-up assessments were conducted a month after the final session.

The primary outcome measured changes in pigmentation between the orbital and extra-orbital skin before and after the trial. Results showed statistically significant reductions in hyperpigmentation in the lateral, middle, and medial regions of the periorbital area. Patient satisfaction was high, with a total response rate of 20%. Notably, satisfaction levels exceeded the measured changes in pigmentation.
