Swelling and Redness after VBeam

Yes, it is possible to have swelling and redness after VBeam laser treatment.  The amount of swelling depends on the density of broken blood vessels on your face, your skin's response to the laser and the laser setting on the day of treatment.  Cool compresses can help to improve the swelling.
