Prolonged facial swelling after laser treatment - Is this permanent?

I received several sessions of Revlite laser on my face 10 months ago and the area of my right upper cheek and side is still swollen, though not as much as it was initially. Is this a permanent complication, like skin thickening or scarring, or will the skin go back to the way it was with time. Please respond ASAP.

If the swelling is improving, this should completely subside.
In some people after facial laser swelling takes 18 monts to go away.
