By the age 30, oxygen levels in your skin drop by 25% and 50% by age 40. The body will first utilize oxygen in the major organs and lastly, go to the skin. As we age, subcutaneous capillaries become dormant with decreasing cells of oxygen; this combined with environmental stresses and other variables, inhibits the ability of cells to regenerate and function properly and the skin slowly loses its elasticity and collagen. When the skin doesn't get enough oxygen it becomes more prone to aging, acne, redness, irritation, and age spots.
How does the treatment work?
Elite offers DIOX is the latest generation in carbon dioxide therapy utilising patent technology offering intelligent interface for the micro-injection of CO2, a naturally occurring gas in the body is administered either subcutaneous or intradermal the body interprets this as an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow providing a surge of Oxygen and nutrients to the treated area - jump starting the body’s wound healing, new cell growth , improved blood supply and collagen production .

Fat & Cellulite
When injected via a specific technique, carbon dioxide gas is directly toxic to fat cells. Once introduced into the fatty deposits, the CO² changes to Carbonic acid which dissolves the fat cell and releases fat. The fat cells literally burst and are eliminated by the body. Increased lymphatic drainage to the area improves the metabolism and excretion of the released fat in problem areas.
