Arnica Montana: An All-Natural Way to Reduce Bruising & Swelling

Arnica Montana (not related to Hannah) is an all-natural homeopathic remedy that is gaining popularity for it’s beneficial effects on postoperative bruising and swelling.

Many plastic surgeons and dermatologists now recommend Arnica to their patients as a natural way for them to recover quicker after cosmetic surgery, and many patients are reporting that it really does make a difference.

Arnica is made from a rare flower found in certain parts of Europe and Scandinavia, and was initially used as an anti-inflammatory to treat arthritis.  Alpine Pharmaceuticals now produces the product for use in many areas of medicine and surgery, and sells a special formulation online under the brand name Sinnech. It is available in a topical cream and tablets, both of which are relatively inexpensive, and also very safe; side effects are extremely rare.

The cream seems to work well for diminishing everyday bumps and bruises, and some people swear that it makes dark circles under the eyes less noticeable.  The tablets are where you really get some bang for your buck though, especially if you are considering a facelift, a neck lift, a nosejob, filler injections, or eyelid surgery. Taking Arnica orally a few days before, and a few days after, these procedures really seems to lessen the amount of swelling, bruising, and pain. In addition, any bruising that does develop tends to disappear more quickly.

So if you’re thinking of having any kind of nip and tuck, especially on your face, Arnica Montana might help you get back into life, and work, as soon as possible. It may not make a noticeable difference for everyone who tries it, but it certainly won’t hurt (no pun intended).
