Using Arnika Forte to Reduce Sclerotherapy Bruising
Arnika Forte is a formulation by DermAvance made of the herb arnica montana and the enzyme bromelain. The product reduces bruising and swelling caused by surgical procedures. Studies show that when using the formulation, healing time is decreased by as much as 50 percent in soft tissue. In fact, the Arnika Forte capsules and roll-on applicator may help to fade the bruising associated with sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that involves injecting a salt solution directly into varicose and spider veins to eliminate them. The salt solution causes the lining of the blood vessel to stick together and swell, and the blood to clot. The blood vessels eventually turn into scar tissue and fade from view over time. However, a common side effect of the procedure is bruising. Arnika Forte capsules work inside the body to reduce the appearance of bruising while the roll-on applicator can be applied to the area externally.
