Why do we bruise? Bruising is caused by a small injury or procedure in our case, which causes tiny blood vessels also known as capillaries to burst. Blood then gets trapped below the skin's surface which causes the bruise.
What procedures cause bruising? In Dermatology there are some procedures that can cause bruising, especially if your skin is more susceptible to bruising. These include some laser treatments, botox, minor surgeries, and sclerotherapy which is the treatment for leg veins.
How can we prevent or decrease the bruising? There are products that we recommend and trust to help with the pain management from bruising. Recova is a product that is a Doctor formulated cream which promotes healing, provides pain relief and accelerated healing with anti-inflammatory enzymes and root seeds extracts that actually speed up the healing process.
