Does Carbon dioxide therapy kill fat cells?

If I was to get carbon dioxide therapy on breasts for stretchmarks would this reduce the size of my breasts. I heard it works very well for stretch marks.

Thanks for your query. Yes Carboxytherapy is toxic to fat cells, i.e. it kills the fat cells and melts them to be removed via lymphatic drainage. The process of removing stretch marks is different so it doesn’t penetrate deep enough to affect the fat layer and there is no effect on the fat cells of the breast. Hope it helps.
