How can I reduce the swelling after hand fillers?

Arnica Tablets: Arnica montana, or arnica, is an herb widely used for pain and bruising. This is because it contains compounds that are known to have an anti-inflammatory effect that can be absorbed through the skin. Research shows that when taken 3 days before and after treatment can dramatically help reduce the swelling and bruising associated with fillers. Click here to buy.

Pineapple: Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found in the pineapple plant. These enzymes may have anti-inflammatory properties and help reduce bruising and swelling when applied to the skin, and when eaten.
Avoid activities increasing blood pressure: Going to the gym, or getting too warm can increase the amount of blood supply to the treatment area, and therefore can increase the amount of bruising you may experience.
