Hello,
The blood under the skin which causes the discoloration of bruising should be totally reabsorbed by the body in three weeks or less. If your bruises take two weeks to heal, then there is nothing wrong with you. There is no treatment as such for thin skin and you should not worry about it. However of there is any easy bruisability then your hematological profile needs to be checked.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
