Bruising after blepharoplasties
- Eyelid swelling can definitely last 3 weeks or longer,
- Yes, warm compresses, very gentle massage and IPL can help,
- Or just make-up - Dermablend is best at covering bruises. It is sold at Macy's and on line.
- Arnica in my experience does not help after surgery. Best wishes.
