Benefits of Pineapple

June 21, 2018

In esthetics, we use bromelian enzyme, found in pineapple, to minimize bruising, decrease inflammation and improve the luminosity of skin. Before injectables, we often recommend eating fresh pineapple to decrease chances of bruising. Our secret formula consists of eating a quarter of a whole fresh pineapple 2 days before your injectable appointment. The day before your injectable appointment eat half of a fresh pineapple. Before coming into your appointment, eat the remaining quarter of pineapple for breakfast!

Utilizing the topical benefits of pineapple, Orchard Med Spa is debuting our new seasonal facial that will be sure to make a splash this summer!
