Hello everyone, this is Joseph and staff here to educate you if you just had injections not too long ago. Here are a few tips before coming in for injections or if you have been bruised. Here are a few things you can do to help prevent it.
What to avoid? Specific foods which can promote the fragility of blood vessels and bruising such as green tea and red wine. Any blood thinner (see list) can cause bruising as well.
What to add in your diet? Certain foods can promote blood to become more viscous and less likely to leak from blood vessels such as cabbage, spinach, kale.
