How to reduce bruising after vein surgery?
Compression: Compression stockings have been shown to reduce bruising after vein stripping surgery in studies.
Homeopathic agents like arnica can help reduce inflammation and bruising. Arnica pellets can be taken prior to treatment as well and Arnica cream or gel should be applied after (not before) treatment.
Dr. Bunke’s own creation, Recova Cream is an Arnica-based product, but unlike OTC Arnica preparations, combines other antioxidant, pro-healing compounds to enhance the skins ability to repair and recover. It include menthol, grapeseed extract and other flavonoids that have been shown to reduce vein-related leg symptoms like leg fatigue and swelling.
