A Note On Bruising

Have you noticed that you bruise more easily with every passing year? This is totally normal, and another sign related to aging. Older patients may also find that bruising from injectable filler Toronto treatments is more extensive than in past years. There’s a reason for this, and it’s natural.

With age, the skin gets thinner with the deterioration of fat pockets, collagen and elastin, as well as the depletion of moisture levels. There’s less padding between your blood vessels and the outside world. When you accidentally hit yourself, your blood vessels are more easily damaged because of this, which is why bruises form more easily. Even the slightest trauma can cause massive bruising.

However, if you do notice that you bruise far too easily and you don’t know where you got some of them, it’s wise to visit your doctor. You may have an underlying medical condition  that is causing your blood from clotting properly (many people find that anti-clotting medications are also to blame).

If you want to prevent the formation of bruises, you may not be able to avoid them entirely, but you can help minimize the risk. Wear clothing that is loose around the waist, arms and legs, and stick to long-sleeved shirts that provide an extra layer of protection. You may also want to replace your furniture that are softer and more accommodating, including tables with rounded corners and padded chairs.
