covering up bruise and swelling

Postby kstrassman » Wed Sep 24, 2008 3:25 pm

Hi Che01,

There are some products that help with swelling- Arnica is an herb that reduces swelling and bruising. Arnica also comes in a topical cream and gel. Bromelain is another homeopathic supplement that is used to reduce swelling and bruising as well as expedite the healing process.

You can find Arnica here:

You can find Bromelain here:

If the bruise is still visible and just need to cover it up, try dermablend, it is one of our most popular brand for covering up bruising.

@ che01. I also had lower bleph and upper on June 30th. I was taking 30x Arnica pills two times a day 4 days before my surgery and drinking arnica tea. I have arnica gel but used it on my thighs instead i was scared to use it near my eyes. My swelling is gone but I also still have the appearance of black eyes/bruising. I only had upper and lower bleph surgery to get rid of my dark circles but now I am scared they look worse. I have crinkles under my eyes also and on my lids where the incision was. My PS told me that the skin there does not keloid because it is thinner skin and that over 6 months it will go back to normal. I was told that 1 month the dark circle/black eye effect should be gone so I am concerned about why you still have that appearance. I am going to order the dermablend recommended to us....I have a job interview coming up and don't want them to be visible. I am 34 years old and did not have any crinkles and wrinkles before the surgery so i am hoping that it goes away. I will order some scar cream just in case. I also got a blood patch on my eye which just makes matters worse for me and makes me look like I have been in a fight or abused! I am wondering if I did the right thing. I have not read of anyone having bleph surgery to remove dark circles. I was told the buccal fat (bags) under the eyes was further casting a dark shadow under my eyes making me look this way. Please get in touch with me I am curious about this as well. I want to look better not worse! I just have to force myself to be patient!!!

So sorry you two had problems. I had some too and found that a very stylish pair of plain glass spectacles tided me over nicely during this annoying period. They can look very nice and classy
