Swelling after Excel V treatment not getting better after 72 hours. Any suggestions?
3 months ago
I had an Excel V treatment on my face and neck Monday afternoon -was told I may experience some swelling -72 hours later and I wake up with my eyes swollen shut. swelling is significant and has not gone down. Is this normal? Perhaps just a very aggressive treatment? Treatment was for general redness - i can get quite red at times, although I was not very red at the time of treatment. The treatment was not overly painful.

This is common for vascular lasers and can be improved with oral diuretics, icing, antihistamins like Claritin and prednisone if its really bad. Best, Dr. Emer.
