I would highly recommend that you see your physician for follow-up concerning the swelling that you are experiencing.
Swelling following IPL treatment
Hello, and sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing following your treatment. You may have had a slightly more aggressive treatment than you had during your last visit, which lead to the swelling. I would recommend following up with the office where you had the treatment, as they may be able to provide you with some advice. Your condition should improve soon. Thanks and I hope this helps!

Follow up with your provider. The settings may have been a little more aggressive than what you had in the past. The swelling should subside in a few day.
