Everyone knows “Beauty is Pain”, but there are ways to lessen the downtime of Dermal Fillers. At Neu Look Med Spa we know that preventative care is vital. Avoid Asprin, Advil, Excedrin, Alcohol, and Fish Oil Supplements at least 24 hours before your treatment. These products can thin your blood and increase your risk for bruising. Start taking Arnica Tablets 2 days before your treatment. Arnica contains natural ingredients that help with inflammation and swelling. A second way to help with the healing of a bruise is to eat Pineapple. Pineapple contains Bromelain, an enzyme that actually digests the proteins in our body that cause inflammation. And finally up your intake of Vitamin C. Foods rich in Vitamin C help strengthen capillary walls , which helps prevent and heal bruises. Our practitioner at Neu Look Med Spa finds that patients who carefully follow all these instructions end up with little to no bruising.
