Completed transconjunctival blepharoplasty with Active FX laser to under eye area and full face. Was told down time would be only about a week to 10 days but am experiencing significant downtime due to prolonged redness under eyes.
I am exactly 4 weeks out from a transconjunctival blepharoplasty with Active FX laser to tighten skin, and botox. My skin is still red. My MD says this is not the norm but will resolve with time and has prescribed a Medrol Dose Pak which I have completed. I am also applying topical cortisone cream. Redness remains.
