Photo facial swelling with a bad cold
I just had a photo facial yesterday Sunday and I have extreme swelling and I also have a cold. Can I take mucinex, sinus medicine or antibiotics?

Elevase creams after a photofacial
It is not uncommon to have some minor swelling after a photofacial. The cold may not be helping. We advise our Limelight photofacial patients to apply a ceramide cream after a photofacial, such as Elevase Moisture Booster, to soothe the skin and strengthen the moisture protective barrier function of the skin.
