Bruises Be Gone: The Art of Post-Treatment Care

We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves (and in our kitchen cabinets) to help you rock that flawless, bruise-free (as much as possible) look.

1. Eat Your Way to Radiant Skin

Let’s start with what’s on your plate. Incorporate foods rich in vitamin K, like leafy greens (hello, kale and spinach), broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. Vitamin K is known for its ability to support healthy blood clotting, which can help reduce bruising. So, go ahead and whip up a vitamin-packed salad or blend a green smoothie for a post-treatment boost.

2. Ice, Ice, Bruise-free

Cold compresses are your new BFFs post-treatment. Wrap some ice in a cloth or use a gel pack and gently apply it to the treated area. Cold constricts blood vessels, reducing blood flow and the risk of bruising. Plus, it’s a refreshing way to pamper your skin and soothe any post-treatment sensations.

3. The Arnica Magic Touch

Arnica is like the superhero of natural remedies when it comes to bruises. Opt for Arnica gel or cream and apply it generously to the treated area. Arnica’s anti-inflammatory properties work wonders in reducing swelling and discoloration, helping you achieve that flawless complexion in no time.

4. Elevate and Celebrate

Give gravity a hand by elevating the treated area above heart level. This simple trick promotes better circulation and helps prevent excess blood from pooling, minimizing the risk of bruising. So, grab a few extra pillows, kick back, and let your skin bask in the elevated bliss.

5. Skip the Steamy Stuff

While a hot shower or sauna session might sound tempting, hold off on the heat post-treatment. Heat dilates blood vessels, which can lead to increased blood flow and potential bruising. Stick to lukewarm water and save the steamy indulgence for later.

6. Say No to Strain

Avoid strenuous activities that could strain the treated area. Give your body some downtime to heal and recover without added stress. It’s the perfect excuse to indulge in some relaxation time—think cozy blankets, a good book, and maybe a soothing cup of herbal tea.

7. The Power of Protection

Shield your skin from the sun’s harsh rays post-treatment. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to prevent sun damage and further irritation. Your skin will thank you for the extra layer of protection.

8. Gentle Skincare Love

Be gentle with your skincare routine post-treatment. Skip harsh exfoliants or aggressive products that could irritate your skin. Opt for gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and soothing serums to nurture your skin back to radiance.

9. Hydrate Like It’s Your Job

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out. Hydration supports skin health, aids in the healing process, and keeps your complexion looking fresh and vibrant. So, raise a glass (of water) to your glowing skin!

10. Follow Your Provider’s Orders

Last but not least, always follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your experienced injector. They know your skin best and may have specific recommendations tailored to your treatment and skin type. Stick to the plan for optimal results and a speedy recovery.

With these tips and tricks in your arsenal, you’ll be well on your way to flaunting a flawless, bruise-free or less bruised complexion post-treatment. Cheers to radiant skin and embracing your beauty journey with confidence and flair!
