After revealing a radical new cosmetic application of carbon dioxide back in November, gasworld reports that the Kalium Group of Companies is now the exclusive distributor of this innovative RioBlush Carbon Dioxide Rejuvenation Therapy in the Middle East.

Introduced by US-based RioBlush, an independent provider of aesthetic medical products and services to doctors, clinics and consumers, the RioBlush Therapy has created waves around the world as a revolutionary gas.

Also known as Carbox Therapy, it rejuvenates, restores and reconditions the skin, with almost remarkable results for skin tightening as well as stretch marks, scars and cellulite. Still a relatively new technology and increasingly fashionable as a treatment for cellulite, the therapy had proven popular in both North and South America – and is now finding favour in the Middle East under the banner of RioBlush Therapy.

The Dubai-based Kalium Group of Companies is one of the leading distributors of advanced medical equipment, skin care and ageing products and aesthetic devices in the region. Like many of the products promoted and distributed by Kalium, the therapy features an efficient functioning mechanism to achieve effective results with slight hindrance to the patient. It injects carbon dioxide via micro-injections just beneath the surface of the skin.

This breaks down localised fatty deposits, initiating the body’s own natural processes to stimulate circulation, local tissue metabolism and collagen production to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.

The carbon dioxide injected via the RioBlush Therapy just beneath the surface of the skin is interpreted by the body as an oxygen deficit, and it responds by increasing the blood flow. This provides a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area and improves circulation, resulting in cell restoration and countering the effects of today’s often gruelling lifestyles.

The results of the therapy can be seen after just one treatment, with a four to six session therapy recommended for optimal results.
