The Holistic Remedy for Bruising

sDid your little one fall or you bumped your leg against the coffee table and leave a bruise?  Recent derma filler injectables leave behind a reminder of your procedure? 


Skin Rehab Arnica Therapy is your holistic remedy to have in your medicine cabinet.    


What Causes Bruising?

Usually, a harmless injury that forms when the capillaries just under the skin are injured by an impact.  Blood leaks out from the vessels and that traditional unsightly, black and blue mark forms on our skin.  Over time as the blood reabsorbs into the body, the black and blue mark disappears, and the skin looks normal again.      


As we age bruising may become more prevalent as the skin becomes thinner.  At times, certain medications like blood thinners and steroids may reduce the blood-clotting ability, leading to an increase in bruising.  Our Skin Rehab Arnica Therapy contains one of the highest percentages of Arnica Montana extract available in a topical cream and excellent in the treatment of bruises.      


Arnica Montana Extract

This well-known homeopathic ingredient has been used for many years in medicinal herbal blends.  A member of the sunflower family, this ingredient has demonstrated its ability to be an effective vasodilator of subcutaneous capillaries.  Arnica works by stimulating the white blood cells to disperse trapped blood and fluid from the site of injury.  This powerful ingredient also has an anti-inflammatory effect on tissue and muscles, alleviating pain, discomfort and swelling.   


Arnica Therapy contains 20% of this powerful extract!  Most arnica creams and gels found in the health food and drug stores contain a much lower percentage and some may be formulated with unhealthy ingredients like parabens and synthetic fragrance.


Arnica Therapy

Along with the 20% Arnica Montana extract this formulation contains a blend of amino acids and other ancient herbal extracts to not only address bruising and swelling but assist in healing wounded tissue. 


Mugwort extract provides potent anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation properties.  Aloe vera juice soothes and relieves discomfort in skin, while aiding in the healing of cuts, grazes, burns and insect bites.  L-Arginine HCI and L-Lysine HCI are two amino acids that are critical in tissue repair. 


Your Holistic Medicine Cabinet

Toss out your old arnica products like Dermend, Arnicare and Procure Bruise! 


These formulations have an inferior percentage of Arnica Montana extract when compared to Arnica Therapy.  Our Skin Rehab formulations use only the purest, cleanest ingredients to treat traumatized and wounded tissue. 


Caring for Bruises


In the Treatment Room

A must-have for the treatment room to use post waxing and extractions when skin may be more sensitive, inflamed and swollen.  Recommend application of Arnica Therapy a few days prior to injectables to help prevent or heal bruising quickly. 


Give skin a healthy, holistic ingredient deck when treating bruises and skin irritations.
