The advice of an anti-aging dermatologist
The assistant of Dr Catherine Gaucher , dermatologist specializing in homeopathy, acupuncture and laser, recommends the brand new Carboxy CO2 gel mask , of Korean origin. A marvel for an immediate radiance boost.
Quèsaco? The Carboxy CO2 consists of a gel and a mask. It generates CO2 gas when the two come into contact with each other. Once absorbed, CO2 induces oxygen from the blood into the tissues. Suddenly, it stimulates blood circulation and stimulates collagen .
The protocol :
Karelle, Dr. Gaucher's assistant, begins by cleaning the skin well and then applies a very gentle peel with fruit acids for 10 minutes to remove dead cells. After rinsing off the peel , she applies the gel for 20 min with the sheet on it for transfer. It tingles a bit. She then applies a serum with hyaluronic acid or vitamin C and, finally, sets her patient up for a small 12-minute session of LEAD (cold light with well-defined wavelengths) to reinforce the benefits of the mask.
In a one hour session, a luminous complexion , rehydrated , supple, brightened skin . Ideal when you have dark circles , because the mask is safe to apply under the eye and considerably attenuates the brown.
4 sessions for an anti-aging result, spaced every 15 days.
Price of the one hour session 200 €
