Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons
Patients undergoing reconstructive or cosmetic plastic surgery procedures typically experience some level of post-operative swelling, bruising or damaged skin, even when less invasive techniques are used. To temporarily relieve bruising and swelling and to help heal the skin, plastic surgeons routinely prescribe Boiron homeopathic medicines.
Boiron Arnicare® helps reduce swelling, bruising and discomfort caused by plastic surgery. As a micro-dosed oral form, Arnica does not cause drowsiness or interact with other medications. Arnica pellets or tablets are recommended for use before and after surgery. Arnicare topicals contain Arnica tincture and have a low risk of side effects when used as directed and applied to undamaged skin.
Boiron Calendula topicals help to soothe and heal the skin. Calendula topicals contain Calendula tincture and have a low risk of side effects when used as directed.

Boiron Arnicare pain-relieving medicines are recommended by plastic surgeon Shirley Madhère, MD from New York, NY.
I believe Boiron Arnica should be used to help patients reduce pain, swelling and bruising, especially when other medicines can’t be used…I see what I believe is a difference.

I use Arnicare with tremendous results. For most of my patients, it reduces bruising and swelling. It’s also very important that they can use it every day at home.

I use Calendula Gel and Cream to reduce swelling and irritation. Patients have noticed faster recovery and healing when they use these Boiron products.

Boiron Arnica is very beneficial for relieving bruising, swelling and soreness in my patients. We have had phenomenal results from using a combination of Boiron Arnicare pellets and gel, and I think these products work very well together to assist in the healing process.
