The number of carboxytherapy sessions that are required to remove or eliminate stretch marks varies depending on the case (white or red striae) and if it is done in monotherapy or in combination with other techniques, such as fractional laser or radiofrequency. Normally, it is usual to perform 5-10 sessions. One or two treatments per week are performed.
Carboxytherapy is a very safe treatment and the side effects are a small discomfort in the area of application and a slight redness that lasts a few minutes. It is also possible that some bruise appears after the puncture (depending on the sensitivity of the skin of each person), but it will disappear in a few days.
Once the carboxytherapy session for stretch marks removal is completed, it is usually complemented with other medical technique of fractional laser or radiofrequency to increase the diffusion of gas to adjacent tissues and enhance their benefits to activate the formation of collagen and elastic fibers.
