Top Selling Bruising Products (least expensive to most expensive):
Bruising is caused when red blood cells go outside the normal circulatory channels (broken capillaries and veins).Bruising can be seen after trauma, scratching, scleroltherapy (injection of leg veins to treat spider veins), laser treatments and other surgical procedures. Also as people age the normal fat pad that protects the blood vessels on the arms and hands becomes depleated and broken blood vessels with bruising is more likely. Many people are also on blood thinning medications (aspirin, coumadin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, and high dose Vitamin E) that makes bruising easier.
Treatment: Vitamin K Creams have been shown to be helpful for bruises, purpura (red blood cells under the skin), rosacea, and dark circles under the eyes. A healthy diet, vitamin C, and the avoidance of smoking also will help the skin to repair itself with less bruising. Hiruval 35 is used to avoid bruising after scleroltherapy.
