Ways to minimise bruising 

10-12 days before avoid aspirin, St Johns Wart, omega 3 or fish oil supplements, ibuprofen, ginkgo biloba and ginseng.

7-10 days before start taking arnica tablets, eat pineapple, pineapple contains bromelain which speeds metabolism to clear waste and heal better.

2-3 days before AVOID alcohol and exercise 

If bruising occurs cold compress for up to 24 hours after in 5 minute intervals (do NOT leave on for more than 5 minutes) and apply arnica cream topically. 

Antihistamines can be used to help keep swelling to a minimum.

For 7-10 days after continue taking arnica tablets, eat pineapple.

As necessary cover up with good quality concealer no earlier than 4 hours post procedure.
