With any surgical procedure, the risk of bruising is present. While you can’t completely avoid this common side effect, there are things you can do to help minimize it.
Before and After Treatment
Avoid alcohol. Because alcohol causes the blood vessels to open, it’s important to avoid it (even a small amount) for 24 hours before and after treatment to reduce your risk of bruising.
Take arnica montana. Arnica montana has been used for centuries to treat both bruising and swelling, as well as many other conditions. Taking arnica tablets five days before and after your procedure can effectively minimize bruising.
