Before your Botox / Fillers / Kybella

With injections, there is always a possibility for bruising because the blood vessels run in a random pattern below the skin.

If you want to decrease your risks for bruising:

  • Stop all over-the-counter medications, such as multivitamins, fish oil, ibuprofen, aspirin, 2 weeks before your injections
  • Consider starting oral Arnica, bromelain, vitamin C before your procedure
  • Plan on at least 2 weeks between an injection and a big event

During your Botox / Fillers / Kybella
  • We will use numbing cream, or ice, or both.
  • Dr Erb uses a tiny needle, 32 gauge, for botox injections to minimize discomfort
  • Dr Erb uses a cannula for under eye injections to minimize bruising
  • Cold packs immediately after will minimize bruising

After your Botox / Fillers / Kybella
  • Ice can help to reduce bruising and swelling
  • You can cover any bruises with makeup
  • Consider continuing oral Arnica, oral bromelain, oral vitamin C, and/or Arnica cream
  • Do not massage or manipulate the area for 1 day
