Healing after upper eyelid and lower eyelid laser

I am at day 16, and I am still bruised. Was hoping at 2 weeks to be free from this. I got a lymphatic massage, and then decided to get my shoulders and neck massaged. This involved lying on my stomach for about 20 mintues. By that evening, the redness under my eyes had come back (it had cleared) My upper eyelid brusing is very slowly getting smaller, but is still very reddish/purple. Is there any cream that will help get rid of brusining. I have taken arnica orally. I have senstive skin, and have a prescription for Locoid Lipcream (0.1% hyrdocortisone) that I had for a skin irritation. It cleared it up immediately...could I use that on my incision and bruising? What about a Vitamin E cream? My Dr. said it will all be fine and to use the Batricin for a few days after sutures. Want to speed the healing of this bruising!
