By Dr. Marina Peredo, Board-Certified Dermatologist

•Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise, as it may result in additional bruising.

•Until the swelling and redness have resolved, avoid intense heat in the treated area(s). This includes sunbathing, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, or hot wax.

•To help alleviate bruising, we recommend taking Arnica or Bromelain, eating fresh pineapple, and applying ice to the area.

•To help alleviate swelling, we recommend an antihistamine during the day, like Zyrtec or Claritin, and Benadryl at night.

•If there is a visible bump, you can massage the area. Depending on the areas treated and the product used, you may feel “firmness.” These areas will soften and settle with time (usually 1-2 weeks).

•Sunscreen and makeup can be applied and you may use a gentle cleanser on the area.

•Apply a hydrating recovery mask like the Biocellulose Recovery Mask from @skinfluence
