Ice Cream Before Injectable Procedures: Your Patients Will Love You and It Reduces Bruising, Too presented by Michael Sinclair, MD
Give your patients about 2 tablespoons of the richest chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry ice cream that you can right before you do an injectable procedure. The reason I tell them I do this is that it seems to raise the viscosity of their blood, so it actually tends to reduce bruising. I’m not sure how much it’s actually reducing the bruising, but they patients believe it, they love it, and they’ll come back to you because it differentiates you from the competitors. It doesn’t really matter what brand as long as it ultra-fattening, ultra-rich, and only about 2 tablespoons is all that it takes. You patients will love and they’ll come back to you.
