I also used ice. Never heard about tea bags but my doctor teaches at Stanford and UCSF and was highly recommended so I just went along with his instructions and so far so good. I will be posting pics soon.
I just had mine done 2 weeks ago and I had the same bruising you did. It was scary!! Almost gone and back to work Wednesday. You look amazing!!!!
Do you have any pics you can share? Before and afters?
