Avoid Bruising from a Dermal Filler or a Botox Injection

Botox and Dermal Fillers are safe and effective treatments; both are FDA approved. The treatments do have the possibility for side-effects, although the side-effects of both are minimal—and not everyone experience side-effects from treatment. The most commonly experienced side-effect is bruising. But there are a few ways you can lessen or altogether negate the risk of bruising after a treatment. 

The number one way to prevent any bruising after a treatment is to speak with one of the professionals at Central Wellness. Your Central Wellness professional can help you cater a Botox injection, or discuss with you the options regarding the types of dermal fillers. 

If you take certain medications or supplements that cause the blood to thin, or medications that restrict the blood’s ability to clot. If you are required to take certain medications that could cause bruising, it’s important to tell your Central Wellness professional. 

After a Botox or Dermal Filler treatment there are a few ways to prevent bruising. You can take several kinds of supplements that help to treat the pain and any post-treatment bruising. In certain cases, these supplements should be taken a few days before a treatment. You can also eat pineapple both before and after a procedure, because pineapple has enzymes that can help to prevent bruising. 

You should also get plenty of rest and stay hydrated after a treatment. And when you rest make sure to sleep elevated. It’s also important to sleep in a way that prevents any inadvertent rubbing or compressing of the skin around the treated area. Prop your head up with extra pillows, or, if you are someone who has experienced bruising in the past, it may be best to sleep more upright in a recliner or chair on the night after a treatment. You also want to avoid touching the area around the treatment site, and absolutely never massage the area around the treatment site (Unless you have been instructed to do so by your medical professional). 

The most important aspect to any treatment is the medical professionals at Central Wellness who administer it. If you have any questions, or you are ready to schedule your next Botox/Dermal Filler appointment, then call Central Wellness today.
