Bruising after microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a light exfoliating treatment. It should absolutely not cause bruising! There are bruise creams and such that claim to work. I haven't seen a great one yet. There is also Arnica (cream or pellet formation) that helps with bruises too. But really, bottom line, something went wrong if you got bruises from a simple microderm treatment.
