7 Day Bruising and Swelling Treatment

Here at Shumway Cosmetic Surgery, Arnica Forte™ is a preferred treatment for bruising and swelling. It is the only pharmaceutical-grade combination of Arnica Montana and Bromelain on the market, and must be obtained from a physician.

Each bottle of Arnica Forte™ contains 14 capsules. Each vegetable capsule contains the following ingredients:

  • Bromelain – 100 mg (2400 GDU). Bromelain is derived from pineapple stems and dissolves bruises by digesting their proteins to make them less visible.
  • Homeopathic Arnica Montana 30 x – 1000 mg – Anti-inflammatory agent
  • Bioflavonoids – Grape Seed Extract – 240 mg and Rutin – 100 mg – Strengthens capillary walls to speed the healing of bruises
  • Vitamin C – 240 mg – Antioxidant that helps promote healthy cell growth

The vegetable capsule these ingredients are housed in allows for faster absorption. Arnica Forte™ contains no artificial dyes or colorants. Unlike other Arnica Montana products, Arnica Forte™ is lactose-free.

Directions for proper use

Treatment may begin up to two days before a procedure and continues for six days afterward. Begin taking one capsule twice daily one day before having Botox® or any other injectable filler performed. Take one capsule twice daily one day before any other medical or cosmetic procedure. You may also begin using the roll-on applicator as soon as you notice visible bruising or swelling.
