Hi everyone! I had the Cellulaze procedure on 6/15. My doctor had instructed me to take magnesium, arnica and vitamin K one week prior to the procedure and afterwards. It was explained to me that there would be significant bruising and swelling after the procedure which would last a couple weeks. Despite this explanation, I was horrified by the look of the bruises and uncomfortable due to swelling beginning a couple days after the procedure. I was complaining at work (a rehabilitation clinic) about it to a physical therapist friend of mine and she offered to use Kinesio tape on my bruises and swore up and down that the bruises an swelling would disappear faster this way. I had it applied on 6/21 (6 days after procedure) and took it off on 6/25. It took about 20 minutes for her to apply the adhesive tape in strips to the bruised areas and then I was able to put my compression garment over the tape. The tape is designed to last for 4-5 days through showers and baths. 4 days afterward, the bruising was practically gone except for a couple spots on my buttocks. I want to shout about this from the rooftops!!!!! Of course, your physician should give his ok before this is done just in case :). I would imagine that any physical therapy or chiropractic clinic would tape anyone who is interested (probably not covered by insurance)
