Prolonged Redness Under Eyes After Active FX/Blepharoplasty
Hello,I am male, skin type II, and on day 17...
- 5 Aug 2009
I am male, skin type II, and on day 17 post-procedure for lower lid trans-conjunctival blephoraplasty with full face Active FX. I healed well from both procedures with the exception of my under eye area where I am experiencing intense residual redness that has faded minimally.
I learned after the procedure that my under-eyes were lasered at a higher setting that the remainder of my face. My MD has suggested that the under-eye redness I am experiencing is unique, despite the higher setting and should be resolved by now. Today I started a Medrol Dose Pak.
Again, the remainder of my face treated with Active FX healed fine with positive results.
Pre-procedure information insufficient. It was supposed to be a walk in the park. The down-time and resulting anxiety related to my healing progress has put me through hell. I am now facing the possibility of returning to work as a guy wearing makeup...nice.
