Thanks for the question. While it is impossible to predict the likelihood of bruising when undergoing injectable filler procedures with products such as Juvederm Ultra or Restylane, in general, we recommend patients refrain from drinking alcohol, and abstain from medications such as NSAIDS( ibuprofen), aspirin, Vitamin E, and any other medication which predispose to "thinning" the blood, prior the procedure. Additionally, I like to ice the area of injection prior to the procedure and then immediately after. Having said this, again, bruising is variable. Areas that tend to bruise more, in my experience, include the periorbita (around the eye), and the lips, whereas the nasolabial folds tend not to bruise as frequently.
Allergic or anaphylactic reactions, sometimes fatal, have been known to occur in animals hypersensitive to penicillin and procaine. Such reactions can occur unpredictably with varying intensity. Animals administered penicillin G procaine should be kept under close observation for at least one half hour. Should allergic or anaphylactic reactions occur, discontinue use of the product and call a veterinarian. If respiratory distress is severe, immediate injection of epinephrine or antihistamine following manufacturer’s recommendations may be necessary.
A compound found in green tea could improve the cognitive abilities of those with Down’s syndrome, a team of scientists has discovered. Researchers found epigallocatechin gallate – which is especially present in green tea but can also be found in white and black teas – combined with cognitive stimulation, improved visual memory and led to more adaptive behaviour. Dr Rafael de la Torre, who led the year-long clinical trial along with Dr Mara Dierrssen, said: “The results suggest that individuals who received treatment with the green tea compound, together with the cognitive stimulation protocol, had better scores in their cognitive capacities”
