Reducing Downtime Post-Procedure with MEND Cosmetic
In a very time-intensive world filled with work and family obligations, many of my patients want to know what they can do to reduce their downtime for cosmetic procedures. A whole week of swelling, bruising, and resting is not everyone’s cup of tea. Reducing downtime with MEND Cosmetic is an excellent product to take when recovering.
While it is essential to follow the pre-op and post-op protocols, supplementation is always a benefactor to the healing process. I strongly prefer MEND Cosmetic because it is formulated by medical and nutritional experts that understand a patient’s dietary needs. With any type of procedure- or even injury- the body is up against a lot of stressful factors. MEND has allowed patients, athletes, and malnourished individuals reach their healing and performance goals.
Of the many types of supplement products that MEND formulates, the MEND Cosmetic supplement is the best for patients that seek facial plastics procedures. The formulations that are best for my patients include but are not limited to: Arnica, Collagen, Nitrogen-facilitating protein complexes, and Vitamin supplementation. This is the “all-in-one” product that carries a patient’s recovery through skin repair, bruising and swelling prevention, skeleto-muscular function, and immune support.
Arnica is used for both preventing and aiding prominent swelling. This naturally-derived herbal supplement quickly acquires white blood cells to injury-prone or inflamed sites post-procedure. In addition to its effects in swelling reduction, Arnica has also shown in Facelift clinical research to reduce ecchymosis, also known as bruising, in patients who received Arnica supplementation versus those who didn’t.
Collagen is supplemented to MEND Cosmetic for its primary aid in skin health and regrowth benefits. Hydrolyzed collagen is an effective oral supplement that can improve appearance of skin and stimulate further collagen production for enhanced firmness and elastic properties. With regards to procedures that involve some degree of incisions and sometimes skin loss, it’s important to have collagen supplemented for healing.
Nitrogen-facilitation to skeletal muscles is often an underrated process when thinking about procedure recovery. The inflammatory processes that are involved with healing of wounds post-procedure can take a toll on muscular toning and strength. MEND Cosmetic is formulated with Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), Glutamines, and Leucine-derived metabolites (HMD, specifically) to promote muscle tissue repair and protein synthesis. Prolonged muscular tissue repair is proportionally related to the timeframe of patient healing and swelling.
Vitamins in full spectrum from A thru D are essential in our metabolic and immunity support, especially when up against the swelling and bruising byproduct results of cosmetic procedures.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant specific to immune support and it also functions to build epithelial and bone tissues. Vitamin B is a broad spectrum vitamin that balances our circulatory systems, and with post-procedure patients, it’s greatest benefit is found in new red blood cell formation. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant responsible for warding off free radicals in cellular tissues, which can instigate or halter our immune responses. Bioflavonoids, which are derived from root vegetables, are required for Vitamin C uptake and thus add to MEND cosmetic products. Last, but not least, Vitamin D is added in support of calcium absorption and bone formation.
Altogether, MEND Cosmetic has made a super formula for procedure patients, creating a cocktail to combat the tumultuous swelling and bruising. It has benefited patients in achieving shorter downtimes and overall stronger outcomes.
