I am about to have a large portion of my face undergo a procedure which will leave me with swelling and bruising. Even though I would like to clear this up as soon as possible. I think I have everything that looked reputable under various searches starting off of
The Arnica looks iffy. Bromelain, grape seed extract, and Vitamin K gel all seem to be good for bruising.
Cold packs, a chillow, and a bedrest pillow should keep the swelling down. I won't be able to do aspirin for a while.
Time and patience are obviously factors.
What have I missed?
