Pre-Injection Tips to reduce swelling and bruising
Prior to your procedure:
Stop the following supplements, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, and all supplements that start with a ‘G’ (ginseng, ginkgo biloba, garlic, etc.).
NO aspirin (unless prescribed by your physician), and NO Ibuprofen at least 3-5 days prior to your procedure.
Begin taking Arnica Montana 3-5 days before your procedure.
Eat fresh pineapple. The bromelain enzyme found in pineapple has been linked to decrease swelling, bruising, and reduced healing time.
Avoid alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours before the procedure.
HYDRATE very well for 24 hours before your appointment and on the day of the procedure for ease of blood draw.
