What is Carboxy treatment?

Thanks for your query.  Carboxytherapy is the administration of carbon dioxide [CO2] gas for therapeutic purposes. Carbon Dioxide is the gas that gives carbonated beverages their “fizz.” It should not be confused with Carbon Monoxide gas, which is a by-product of oil combustion that can be deadly. The main side effect of it is the bruising at point of injection for few hours / Minutes. Hope it helps.
