I bruise really easily. Is there anything I can do before a Botox injection to reduce my risk?
Yes. When it comes to any kind of injectables, the first thing is to make certain that you see someone with a lot of experience. This will greatly reduce your risk of post treatment bruising. Second, try the OcuMend™ patches immediately after treatment. They are particularly effective with injectable procedures such as Botox, fillers or Kybella. I also have all of my patients take a medical grade Arnica, Bromelain, and Vitamin K pill after injections. If you are a known bruiser, I recommend starting them two weeks before treatment. Also, stop blood thinners for two weeks before your procedure, including alcohol, green tea, herbal medications/teas, and most medications other than Tylenol.
Does it matter what color the bruise is when it comes to picking an appropriate bruising treatment?
The advantage of bruising treatments is to help speed up your body’s healing process. So, they work best when the bruise is at the red, purple stage. Once the bruise begins to turn yellow and green, you are already well on your way to healed.
I hate the feeling of a heavy foundation, but need one to cover up the tell tale bruises from my facelift. Can you help?
I am a big fan of the Oxygenetix line of foundation. It’s why we carry it in our Beverly Hills office. You can also order it online at www.theskinspot.com. It provides the kind of full coverage that you need to camouflage post op bruising and redness. But it looks natural and feels great on the skin because it breathes. It also comes in a full range of color options so it works with all skin tones.
How many sessions will it take with the BBL™ to get rid of my bruise?
It is impossible to say without seeing you in person or at least a photo. My best advice would be for you to speak with your plastic surgeon. I like to go over all of the bruising treatment options with my patients during their initial consultation. Then, I follow their healing process closely post operatively. At that point, I can give a realistic recommendation in terms of the number of treatments. In our office, BBL™ for bruising is included in your procedure price if your bruising goes beyond one month (which is rare, but it can happen).
