What causes bruising? Joel Schlessinger MD answers this question and more.

Many of us do not think twice when we notice a bruise on our arms or legs. When a bruise appears on our face, however, we often look for ways to heal and diminish the mark more quickly. In this presentation, Joel Schlessinger MD describes what products can help prevent and diminish the appearance of bruises.

Bruising is caused when blood vessels beneath the skin become weak or damaged. This causes blood to pool beneath the surface and a blue or black mark to appear. Bruises are common in men, women and children of all ages and may be tender or sensitive until they fade.

According to Joel Schlessinger MD, bruising can occur following certain cosmetic procedures.

While many people develop bruises after falling or bumping into something, bruises can also be caused by cosmetic procedures such as fillers, injections and laser therapy treatments. The skin on the face is thinner and more delicate than other areas of the body so bruises are more likely to develop on the complexion.

Maintaining strong and healthy skin may help reduce the likelihood and degree of bruising. A diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals and a skin care regimen that includes sunscreen can help you maintain a healthy complexion.

Joel Schlessinger MD reveals his top product picks for healing bruises.

Products that contain vitamin K such as LovelySkin Vitamin K Crème and Auriderm Post-Op Gel strengthen capillaries to prevent and fade the appearance of bruises. You can also reduce the risk of bruising before undergoing a cosmetic treatment by applying products such as Neocutis PREVedem Antioxidant Serum for several weeks prior to your appointment.

While bruises are healing, cover them with a foundation such as DermaBlend Professional Cover Cream SPF 30 to protect against sun damage.
