Extreme Facial Swelling Following 1st Treatment, Should I Continue With Sessions?
I had my first IPL treatment about one month ago. The following day my entire face was so swollen I could barely see out of my eyes, with severe bruising on both cheeks. Iteventually went down after 1 week, and my skin looks good. I was so upset after it, the facility agreed to give me 3 free treatments. I have not done another one, as I am terrified the same thing will happen, and could result in permanant damage. I am tempted as the results were so good. What are your thoughts on another Tx?
Reaction could be from pre-treatment numbing cream or post-treatment cream
