SIDE EFFECTS Carboxytherapy is quite a secure procedure. As any other medical procedure, it has some side effects, commonly reported by patients. These effects are: Pain: The pain is rather slow to occur, giving the time for the operator to change the point of injection. Bruises: 30% of the patients are reporting bruises. This is a normal side effect of mesotherapy. They usually disappear in 4 to 5 days. Oedema: oedema is frequent in caborxytherapy. It is a normal reaction of the skin which has been hurt. It normally disappears in a couple of days. Erythema : may also occur and will stay for a few days also. Carboxytherapy leads to vasodilation, therefore erythema. Crackles sensations: these sensations are common in carboxytherapy. They normally stay no more than a few hours. Sensations of heavy legs: are often reported. They are due to vasodilation.
