Arnika Forte® in Philadelphia, PA

Located in Glen Mills, Media and Chester, Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery offers Arnika Forte® to the residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania who desire to increase healing following skin rejuvenation treatments.

What is Arnika Forte®?

One of the drawbacks to some skin rejuvenation treatments is the healing process and side effects that accompany it. Arnika Forte® is an all-natural supplement that reduces bruising and swelling following surgery or other treatments. The Arnika Forte® Kit contains 14 vegetable capsules along with a topical roll-on applicator. The capsules contain bromelain, Arnica montana, bioflavonoids, and Vitamin C. The topical roll-on applicator contains a combination of Arnica montana, bromelain, aloe vera, and bellis perennis. With this treatment, there are no side effects and has been shown to cut the healing time in half.

Arnika montana has been used as a topical treatment to treat pain, swelling, soreness, and other symptoms common after cosmetic procedures. It can be taken orally as a homeopathic remedy for these symptoms. Bromelain has been shown to speed healing of wounds and burns when applied topically and reduce pain and accelerate healing when taken orally.

How Does Arnika Forte® Work?

Two days prior to a surgical procedure, a capsule should be taken or one day prior to treatments with injectable fillers especially Kybella®. The dosage is taken for seven days; the topical treatment is applied to the bruised area in a circular motion when bruising and swelling appear in the affected area twice a day.

How Does Arnika Forte® Help with Kybella® Injections?

Kybella® is an injectable treatment that reduces the fat under the chin. The only main side effect that occurs is typically bruising. Arnika Forte® reduces the appearance of bruising making the results of Kybella® visible faster. In fact, Arnika Forte® can reduce healing time by as much as 50 percent.

Is Arnika Forte® Right for Me?

If you are undergoing a series of dermal fillers such as Kybella®, and want to speed up healing and recovery or significantly diminish any side effect associated with injections, Arnika Forte® may be right for you.
