Overcoming Facial Bruises Due To Using Facial Tools?
Hello doctor, so the chronology is this afternoon I used a blackhead suction facial tool that I bought online. I used the tool on the nose, chin, forehead near my eyebrows when using blackheads, I did lift but my skin was flushed, I thought it was normal because people in general facials are like that but in the afternoon my red skin turns to bruises because of what, then the quick way to heal what is the problem at the end of this week there is a big event 🙁

Bruises / bruises can appear when there is a tear in a blood vessel due to previous trauma. Usually the tear occurs in small blood vessels and then the blood will collect under the skin layer. The bruise you may experience may be due to minor trauma as a result of using your blackhead extractor.
You don't need to worry, in normal people without blood clotting disorders, bruises / bruises can disappear on their own. Although it takes a long time, the body has a system that can naturally reabsorb the blood clot.
Things you can do to help speed up bruising include:
Immediately do RICE action (rest, ice, compression, elevation) by resting the part that is bruised / bruised, applying ice compresses and elevating the body position that is experiencing bruises
Compress with warm water when the bruise has turned purple to thin the clot
Don't press on the bruise
Can be given topical drugs containing heparin sodium
When in pain, take pain relievers such as paracetamol
If the complaints have not subsided in the long term (> 1 week) I suggest that you check with your nearest doctor to get the right treatment.
That is the information I can convey, hope it helps
