Hi mosellv_md, 

I am just seeing you post on ePrime- I have worked with this device for over three years now and have treated over thirty patients without any problems like those you have described here. Usually ePrime is a "minimal downtime" procedure, with mild swelling and pinkness that lasts a day or so. Some patients have a small bump at the site of needle insertion that lasts a week or so, but usually resolves within a month and is not dangerous. Patients can have some bruising also, but it is usually mild and can be minimized by avoiding blood thinners before treatment.

I would happy to look at your photos if you would like to post them. I hope this is helpful!
