Warm compress: If the bruise is over 48 hours old you can use a warm compress 20 minutes every 2-3 hours on the area. This increases blood flow to the area which will make the bruising disappear more rapidly. Heat along with time and it will go away. If less than 48 hours you need to use ice first.
