Babyface Clinical Strength Vitamin K Healing Cream is used for areas of redness, rosacea, purple blotches, bruising, dark under-eye circles and for lessening the appearance of spider veins and broken capillaries (small blood vessels on the face and body) promoting a more even skin tone.
What is Vitamin K?
Vitamin K is best known for its ability to help blood to clot. The “K” is taken from the German word “koagulation,” which means the formation of blood clots. Most creams that contain vitamin K harness this property to help solve a variety of skin problems.
Bruises are formed when a bump to the skin breaks capillaries, causing them to leak blood close to the skin’s surface, forming an unsightly purple or brownish mark. Studies have shown that applying a topical Vitamin K cream onto the affected area can limit the leaking, reducing the severity of a bruise, particularly if applied soon after the trauma. Gently rubbing the cream onto a bruise twice a day also helps to break down the blood and assist the body in absorbing it, encouraging the bruise to fade faster.
Healing after cosmetic surgery can often be a disappointingly long process. To help improve patient satisfaction, plastic surgeons have long prescribed Vitamin K creams to reduce bruising and scarring during the recovery period. Applying the cream regularly for two weeks before facelift surgery can also help limit postoperative bruising. One medical study has shown topical application of vitamin K reduces bruising after facial laser treatments and would also be likely to help fade bruises caused by other nonsurgical treatments, such as the use of fillers on facial lines.
Dark Circles under Eyes
One of the most common beauty products to contain vitamin K is eye cream. Some dark circles are caused by fragile capillaries leaking blood in the delicate under-eye area where the skin is so thin the blood is clearly visible in the form of brown bags. Gently tapping on a vitamin K cream can diminish the discoloration by causing the blood to clot, stopping it from spreading, while also helping to prevent further leakage. Using a Vitamin K cream with a Vitamin C product (try it with our Super-C Serum) under the eyes can help the skin absorb vitamin K more quickly, and Vitamin A (such as Babyface Night Renewal Cream or Cucumber Eye Gel) helps with renewal and collagen growth, and strengthens the thinner under-eye skin.
Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries
Applied topically, Vitamin K is carried from the epidermis into the capillaries of the skin where it strengthens and repairs the damaged blood vessel allowing the leaked blood to slowly heal and disperse more quickly.

I’ve been using your product and finding very positive results.
I’ve just begun using this cream nightly, alternating with my usual retinol products and also spot treating with it by day. So far, I’m enjoying the smooth, creamy texture. Time will tell if it helps my few broken capillaries and dark under eye circles. BABYFACE has been my go-to store for skincare, so I have high hopes!
I have battled severe Rosacea for most of my adult life and finally got it under control a few years ago. Additionally, I have had several skin cancers removed from my nose requiring extensive reconstruction and skin grafts. The resulting redness and broken capillaries and scars undermined my confidence and caused me a great deal of embarrassment. I had used Vit K cream in the past with limited success when Babyface Vit K healing cream was recommended I decided to give it a try. I have now been using as directed for 3 months with a noticeable reduction in the visible scars, redness, and broken capillaries. I have also started using it on the eczema scars and they have faded to the point they are not noticeable unless you really look for them. This has been life-changing for me. I actually like looking at my face again!
My face feels tighter,softer. The redness is decreased tremendously and I think it will continue with continued use I'm very happy with the product. Thank you
This is great! I had a cyst removed that was close to my and of course it resulted in a black-eye... a week before I was traveling to NYC! I had been using a few other things to help it heal more quickly, but when I started using vitamin K the bruise started changing rapidly. What would have easily taken a couple of weeks, healed in just one! I am continuing to use it for under-eye circles! Love it!
