Options for Minimizing Bruising

After facial procedures, including peels, lasers, injectables, or surgery, you want to minimize downtime and return to the normal rhythm of life as soon as possible. Depending on the nature of the procedure, the swelling and discoloration can last for days, sometimes over a week. It may be hard to look presentable if your face has some bruising that you might not want other people to see. Here are some tips and tricks to get back to your routine sooner. 

Foods / Meds to Avoid:
There are many foods, medications, and supplements that can worsen bruising, and they are largely the same ones that increase bleeding. These include, but are not limited to: aspirin, Advil, Coumadin, Warfarin, Xarelto, Eliquis, Vitamin E, fish oils, ginger, gingko biloba, tumeric, salty and/or spicy foods. 

Blood thinning medications  should be paused only with the approval of your primary doctor or cardiologist.

Arnica:
Arnica is a natural herb that has been used to lessen the bruising and swelling after trauma to the human body for hundreds of years. Known as “leopard’s bane” and “wolf’s bane,”  Arnica has been used as a European herbal remedy  to shorten the recovery period for patients. FAC carries a combination topical and injestible Arnica kit to help minimize bruising. Ask us on your next visit.

Pineapple: (BROMELAIN)
Eating pineapple can help reduce the duration and severity of bruising via an enzyme called Bromelain, which is found in the juice and stem of the fruit. The anti-inflammatory properties of Bromelain help reduce bruising and swelling. We encourage our patients to eat pineapples or drink pure pineapple juice to help reduce downtime. Do note that raw pineapple also contains many beneficial vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C that can help boost your immune system and speed up healing as well.

Try to steer away from canned or bottled pineapple juice, which may contain other artificial ingredients that can interfere with the healing properties of Bromelain.

Wishing everyone a safe and happy summer!
