Ways to reduce swelling after Artefill.


How long ago did you have your Artefill injections?  Eight syringes seems like quite a lot to have injected at one time.  What areas of your face were treated? In regards to trying to reduce the swelling after the injection, I would recommend ice packs as opposed to hot packs if the injections were done a day or two ago.  If it has been several days or weeks since your treatment, I would recommend seeing your treating physician to be evaluated.
