Had laser to face/chest 7 weeks ago. Had facial swelling a few days, & a few papules that felt like stinging nettles. Iced constantly 4 days, Claritin day 4. For papules, I was given hydrocortisone. No evidence of infection/illness. Bumps improved, but edema is unchanged. I await results of CT. Can Excel V laser cause lymph damage or edema that would last this long? Would a lipoma appear in only a week? I had an uneventful breast reduction 9 months prior. Greatly increased fatigue.

Swelling can last after lasers if done very aggressively. I suggest speaking to your physician about diuretics, prednisone along with your antihistamines. Oxygen facials may help. Best, Dr. Emer.
