Carboxytherapy ? therapeutical application of CO 2 gas - is used in the treatment of vascular disorders since 1932 (Spa Royat, France). Since 1993 it is used also in non-invasive aesthetic medicine. Based on its main effects which are improvement of local trophic and vascular supply, the method is profitable even for certain types of hair loss. A group of 9 patients (8 in Prague, 1 in Debrecen, Hungary, Dr. Szabo) with different kinds of hair loss (4 with effluvium connected with hypothyreosis, although laboratory compensated; 2 men with androgenetic alopecia in the beginning; 3 patients with alopecia areata) was treated by injectional carboxytherapy. They passed from 3 to 27 treatments (10,1 in average), depending on the effect of the therapy. Improvement was reported by 6 patients (66,6 %). Unsuccessful cases were 1 with severe alopecia areata, 1 man with androgenetic alopecia and 1 with history of effluvium lasting for dozens of years. Conclusion: Carboxytherapy is a valuable approach in certain types of hair loss. For serious and long lasting hair loss it is not effective enough as a sole therapeutical method, however can be considered as a possibility of additional local therapy. Carboxytherapy is completely natural (CO 2 is one of respiratory gases) and if used properly, there are no serious side-effects. This makes it attractive for patients, but injectional administration of CO 2 is not painless. That is the reason why some patients prefer superficial mesotherapy or skin needling. Nevertheless, in my experience, carboxytherapy is faster in results and more effective.
