A Message From Lana Kerr, Founder & CEO
As we leave 2020 behind and move forward into 2021, I’m grateful for the unique challenges that the year posed for me to reinvent and challenge myself as a business person and skincare industry expert!
Celebrating 5 years of CO2Lift
I launched CO2Lift on February 11, 2016—would you believe that it’s been 5 years since we broke ground as the only proven carboxytherapy gel treatment?
Every business person who’s worth her salt knows 5 years is the “congrats, you made it!” anniversary in entrepreneurship, no matter what the industry.
Not only am I grateful and emotional that we made it to this milestone, but I’m proud and humbled that we made it happen with the penultimate year being the year of COVID-19.
I couldn’t have made it happen without the CO2Lift family, including our team, providers and their patients, and the women and men who champion our consumer products. Thank you for being part of our groundbreaking!
Hitting 5 years is also a testament to our groundbreaking product, the only evidence-based carboxytherapy gel treatment—and my pride in that couldn’t shine brighter.
The first scientifically proven carboxytherapy gel
CO2Lift is the only scientifically-proven carboxytherapy gel, and the first! The carboxytherapy procedure itself is well-established as effective, but before CO2Lift, there were no evidence-based choices for topical carboxytherapy.
The only at-home carboxytherapy treatment
Traditional carboxytherapy treatments require injections, which in turn require an office visit. With carboxytherapy gel, there are no injections and it can be applied in-office or at home.
Post-COVID-19, many skincare patients are actively seeking home treatments as a socially responsible option that limits virus transmission.
My commitment to skin health
I’m here to tell providers and patients that CO2Lift carboxytherapy gel is a skincare treatment in a class of its own. It’s the only naturally-derived, professional skin treatment of its kind that’s topical, pain-free, and requires no downtime.
Carboxytherapy gel is:
It’s also one of the only naturally-based therapies that can produce the same professional tier of results that come from laser treatments or other invasive procedures in the clinic.
Patients who use carboxytherapy gel report improvements in the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, age-related skin changes, wrinkles and fine lines, and more.
It can even improve wound healing or post-procedure healing by encouraging cell turnover. All without a single injection!
So why isn’t carboxytherapy gel the first option that comes to mind when patients and providers want noninvasive treatment?
My mission is to get carboxytherapy gel into the minds (and onto the faces) of every patient who wants firmer, brighter, healthier skin. I want to see CO2Lift in every provider’s office!
The only way I can make that happen is through educating the public on carboxytherapy as an essential part of skin health and regeneration, which I continue to do as I spread the word about CO2Lift.
Leading the conversation around vaginal wellness
The skin on your face isn’t the only skin that matters. What about the skin between your legs?
Vaginal carboxytherapy gel is a groundbreaking rejuvenation treatment that helps improve the vaginal changes that occur around:
- Chemotherapy and radiation
- Menopause (and peri- and post-menopause)
- Hormone therapy (including hormonal birth control)
Millions of women live with dryness, lost elasticity, painful sex, and other vaginal changes that don’t have to carry shame.
I’m proud to fill the gap with CO2LiftV, an at-home vaginal rejuvenation kit that makes it simple for women to regain functionality and appearance.
And I’m excited to keep leading this critical conversation by educating providers and patients about vaginal carboxytherapy gel, the only treatment of its kind!
Looking forward to 2021
As we close out 2020, I’m humbled and thankful.
Millions of small businesses didn’t weather the pandemic—but CO2Lift grew our team and partnered with a larger provider network in 2020.
We’re going into 2021 bigger and brighter than ever!
I’m privileged and overjoyed to be part of this industry—making women’s lives better by helping them feel their best.
Founder and CEO
We live in changing times.
That’s a fact that affects providers, their patients, and their businesses from the ground up.
In 2020, thousands of providers had to ask their patients to postpone coming in for elective or cosmetic procedures. The revenue hit for many was very high!
In-person appointments will be back, but in many ways, the new normal is here to stay, and CO2Lift is here to help providers close the revenue gap.
From now on, there will always be patients who want (or need) take-home options for skin and vaginal rejuvenation.
Our proprietary topical carboxytherapy gel treatments are the only home carboxytherapy gels on the market, and we’re here to accommodate the women and men who want to avoid the medspa for medical safety.
In just one application, CO2Lift increases hydration in the skin by over 117%, increases localized blood flow to promote healing, and stimulates cell regeneration.
The result is luminous skin that’s supple, elastic, and taut.
All completely without injections—making the gel carboxytherapy treatment accessible to patients at home or in the office.
Carboxytherapy is the use of CO2 to stimulate arteriovenous vasodilation, or the dilation of local veins and arteries.
The procedure was born in the 1930s when a French physician tried a carbonated spa to relieve his patients’ peripheral artery disease. Decades later, doctors revived carboxytherapy for wound healing—and found that CO2 improved the aesthetic appearance of the patients’ skin too.
Applying CO2 cutaneously has 3 main effects:
- Increases blood flow to the epithelial tissues, which make up the skin, fascia, and the layers between and underneath
- Increases lymphatic drainage, which removes waste products during healing and cell turnover
- Promotes localized lipolysis, or the metabolism of fat for energy
- Improved cellulite
- Improved firmness
- Reduced stretch mark appearance
- Reduced scar appearance
- Reduced wrinkle appearance
CO2Lift harnesses exactly the same technology in a noninvasive gel mask package, bringing the benefits of carboxytherapy to a wider audience of patients and providers.
Noninvasive Gel Treatment
CO2Lift has the distinction of being the only topical carboxytherapy product on the market.
While the very first carboxytherapy treatment was a literal bubble bath, most carboxytherapy today uses a system of high-gauge needles to deliver CO2 to the subcutaneous tissues.
This approach is technically noninvasive because the needles are very fine—but many patients want a needle-free option that won’t leave bruising or tenderness.
CO2LiftPro and CO2LiftV come in the form of a cutaneous gel product that’s applied to the skin for the duration of treatment.
There are no needles involved and the noninvasive topical treatment can take place in or out of the office.
Safe Home Treatment
The patient-provider relationship changed forever in 2020, and so did the demand for cosmeceutical products.
For the first time, more patients want to use cosmeceuticals instead of attending the clinic for a cosmetic procedure.
CO2Lift is the only way to replicate procedure results with none of the potential exposure of the clinic during a global pandemic.
Prior to COVID-19, most providers administered CO2Lift products in-office. Many still do, but today, increasingly more providers send patients home with CO2Lift for self-treatment.
Better Procedure Recovery
CO2Lift increases the blood flow and lymphatic drainage in the treated area, which promotes waste removal and cellular turnover—healing, in other words.
The medical use case for carboxytherapy includes wound healing and procedure rehabilitation, making it effective aftercare for recovery from clinical or cosmetic procedures.
CO2LiftPro is the only topical carboxytherapy gel mask for use on the face and body. It can:
- Double the skin’s hydration with one treatment and no side effects
- Heal damaged tissue within 2 weeks by increasing collagen production and circulation
- Reverse signs of aging with a non-invasive, pain-free topical treatment
CO2LiftV for Vaginal Restoration
CO2LiftV is a carboxytherapy gel vaginal rejuvenation treatment that is applied externally to the vulva and internally to the vagina. It can:
- Improve the quality of intimacy by improving sensitivity, lubrication, and elasticity
- Reverse changes to the vulva and vagina from childbirth, chemotherapy, medications, or menopause
- Promote faster recovery from procedures such as vaginoplasty
Procedure-Free Results with CO2Lift
The CO2Lift Gel Carboxy product line is the only way for providers to help patients get procedure-free results—in the office or the comfort of their own homes.
