How Can I Reduce My Risks Of Bleeding Or Bruising From JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
Patients may want to avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week prior to treatment, consult your primary physician before discontinuing any normally prescribed medications. Dr. Garcia also recommends taking Arnica Montana for three days prior to your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling. The recommendation is to take four tablets, four times a day, for three days prior to your injection.
Do not use Arnica if you have active heart disease, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or are taking Coumadin, Lovenox, Heparin, or xeralto. If you have a medical condition that affects clotting or are on a medication which affects bloods clotting, you must get your primary care doctor’s approval before taking arnica.
