How can I avoid Swelling and Bruising before my Botox or Fillers treatment? [ VIDEO ]
A few things that you can do to avoid swelling and bruising before you come in for a Botox or Fillers treatment is to avoid alcohol 24 hours in advance, avoid strenuous exercise 24 hours in advance, stop any type of NSAID, ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, anything like that, and don’t take any vitamin E.
If a patient does happen to bruise, there’s a few things that we recommend for them. First off to start is the Arnica cream as well as the Arnica patches that we sell here at Skin By Lovely. As well, as you can ice the area and avoid exercising again for 24 hours after the treatment. And if the bruise is really large, black and blue, there’s also a V-beam laser that we can send patients to as well.
