Bruise Free Injections In San Diego

Dr. Malone strives to deliver the best bruise free inejections San Diego has to offer, so she uses the most scientifically advanced techniques to provide dermal injections that are bruise-free. Bruising is possible after a treatment because the skin on the face has many small blood vessels that can break from an injection performed with a needle, thus creating a bruise. Blunt tip micro-cannulas can be one of the options when injecting dermal fillers into the skin to avoid bruising and other side effects. Micro-cannulas allow for one-port injections and administer filler without multiple injections. The tip of the cannula moves the blood vessels aside instead of piercing them. Hence, bruise-free.

There are a few ways in which you can help prevent or minimize bruising before and after your treatment.

Some medications can stop your platelets, the cells in your bloodstream that help terminate bleeding, from functioning properly. Aspirin and products with NSAID (Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aleve, Advil, Motrin, etc) can prevent the platelets from doing what they do well, stopping bleeding and bruising. To optimize your injectable treatment outcome it is best to avoid these medications for at least one week prior to your treatment.

Here are some tips on what to do after your bruise free injection treatment in San Diego:

  • Avoid alcohol for at least a day or two
  • Avoid direct sunlight until any swelling has gone down
  • Avoid doing inversions in yoga
  • Avoid exercise (except for walking) for a day or two
  • Do not massage the injection area for several hours
  • Ice for comfort and to reduce swelling
  • Use Arnica and Bromelain to improve the healing process if advised by Dr. Malone
  • Use Tylenol as needed for discomfort

We provide you with ice or cold packs before and after your treatment to help restrict the blood vessels and therefore minimize the opportunity for bruising and swelling.

Arnica Montana & Bromelain

You may be a candidate to take Arnica Montana and Bromelain supplements before and after your treatment. Arnica Montana, an herbal dietary supplement, and Bromelain, a pineapple based enzyme, can aid in reducing bleeding and bruising. You might want to skip on green tea extract and supplements such as fish oil because they act like blood thinners. During your consultation with Dr. Malone you will have the opportunity to review your planned treatment in detail and Dr. Malone will help counsel you on the regiment of care that will allow you to get the best outcome possible.

Avoid Strenuous Exercises

After your treatment, avoid strenuous exercises and even yoga for a couple of days while the capillaries repair themselves. The key is to allow the platelets to be functional and the blood flow to be minimal. Walking, however, is fine. Just be cautious not to increase your heart rate or your blood pressure with strenuous activity. Also, it is best to avoid exposure to the sun until any redness and swelling have resolved. We always encourage patients to use a non chemical sunscreen with a factor of SPF 30 or more.
