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.
