How can I hide bruising and redness after an anti-aging treatment?

You can conceal bruising and redness from anti-aging treatments by doing the following:

  • Stock up beforehand on a good concealer to make bruising disappear. I find Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage is great for covering up small stuff.
  • Some laser treatments create eggplant-colored bruises and the only thing that will cover those is DermaBlend. It’s been around forever because it does an amazing job. Just get it ahead of time and practice a couple of times to get the hang of blending it.
  • If your treatment is more likely to leave redness than anything else (ask your doctor), go to any drugstore and buy a green-tinted concealer; it takes the red out.
