Contraindications & Side Effects
Carboxytherapy    is   a   technique   that   must   be   indicated   and   be   applied   by   a   doctor   who   must   initially   evaluate   the   patient   to   check   if   there are any contraindications to receive the treatment. CONTRAINDICATIONS Congenital   heart   disease,   severe   heart   failure,   recent   heart   infarction   or   instable   angina   pectoris,   congestive   heart   disease   and restrictive pulmonary disease Mitral and aortic valve stenosis Decompensated arterial high blood pressure. Acute thrombosis, recent phlebitis or pulmonary embolism Severe cerebrovascular disease, recent cerebrovascular accident Patients with chronic obstructive lung disease, CO2 retention, sleep apnea and cor pulmonale Renal failure, dialysis Epilepsy Acute skin bacterial or viral infection / local inflammation Gangrene Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus Patients with immunosuppression or immunosuppressant drugs Pregnant Women and lactation: precautionary principle Severe anaemia, bleeding diseases (Willebrand's disorder, haemophilia) Chemotherapy and active malignancies Use of acetazolamide (Edemox) & diclofenamide (Glauconide). 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. They do not stay over a couple of hours.     Click the following links for more information:   1.- Introduction 2.-   Indications 3.- Contraindications and side effects 4.-   Frequently asked questions 5.-   Photo Gallery   If you would like additional information regarding our services or  to request an appointment, you can contact us by phone (952 80 53   68)   or   by   email .
