Should I take arnica prior to Acne scar subscision and Restalyne injections to minimize bruising?

Fillers, acne scars and arnica

I have no problems with patients on arnica. Often I use this in conjunction with V Beam laser to treat post- filler bruising. 
Subscision can be associated with bruising for up to a week. The use of arnica cream and vascular laser early in the bruising process can reduce bruising times markedly. All the bestDr Davin LimLaser dermatologistBrisbane, Australia.

I suggest consulting with your physician to discuss his or her protocol regarding homeopathic medications. Best, Dr. Emer
