"The most common side effects were mild-to-moderate pain and moderate-to-severe erythema or edema, which appeared on the skin within 1 week after the treatment.

We suggest that cryotherapy with compression for 5 minutes at 9 degrees C for 20 seconds can be safely administered with a low complication rate." - Anonymous Online Contributor
