BEFORE AN INJECTION

The face has high vascularity. So bruising is not uncommon and can occur in at least 1 out of 5 sharp needle injection points.
Before you undergo an aesthetic injection such as botox/fillers/skin boosters/injector gun/RF needling treatment/ thread lifts, here are some basic preparatory steps you can take:

Pre-Treatment Advice

  • Avoid blood thinners/NSAIDs/health supplements/alcohol for 5 days prior to the procedure to reduce bruising.
  • Inform your doctor in advance if you are taking any other medications so that suitable advice can be given.
  • Inform the doctor beforehand if you bruise easily so that extra steps can be taken.

Post-Treatment Advice

  • Avoid sleeping on your face and strenuous exercises for the first week.
  • Avoid travelling for first 2 days post-injection.
  • Avoid facials and strong energy treatments on the treated area like RF/HIFU/fractional lasers for first 2 weeks.
  • For bruises on the face it is best to ice the area 2-3 times a day for the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid applying heat or rubbing hard on it as the bruise can spread.
  • You can apply hirudoid or arnica cream to help speed up the healing.
  • Supplements containing arnica may help.
