  2.Ecchymosis may appear because of

       2.1 Patient 

             - capillary fragility

             - alcoholics

             - smokers

       2.2 Physician

            - choice of bad material ( needles not flexible and hard)

            - touching the periosteum with the needle


   3. Our recommandations for treatments

-Make with pressure a finger massage on the ecchymosis with criss cross technique in a centrifuge way

-Make up with a professional green cosmetic pen before adding skin colour make up

Such ecchymosis will not any more appear after 3 to 8 days and do not lead to social eviction with the actual make up offered on the market.


 8days ecchymosis

Legend : Ecchymosis Appearance 8 days after treatment : It is not a mistake in such case. That can happen to any patient.
Just inform them of this possibility and use powder make up without alcohol to not make it visible
