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.

Everything about this purchase beginning with the online purchase experience, customer service, and to the shipping process, and was extremely easy and problem-free. Very pleasant surprise. As for the Vitamin K Cream I am AMAZED at how it made a small bruise on my arm disappear quickly without it going through the typical **** stages of bruise healing. I haven't used it for very long so I can't speak to it's effectiveness in diminishing the broken capillaries on my face but I am expecting good results. This product is wonderfully creamy and absorbs quickly leaving no stickiness or oiliness. So far I highly recommend Babyface Vitamin K Cream.
To soon to tell for sure. Noticed results on second day, to sixth day, little since then.
Very successful. The Vitamin K lotion is soothing and effective for bruising! Thank you.
I’ve been using the Vitamin K Cream for about a year now & really like it as an eye cream, as I have red and blue vein issues near my eyes. It seems to help and leaves my skin hydrated without any allergic reaction! The richness of the cream seems watery recently, I prefer the richness of the past formulation, and hope it’s a fluke. Thanks Babyface!
Been using it. Works great.
