Swelling from Fraxel
Fraxel is a wonderful laser to treat these fine lines, sun damage, and wrinkles. I would recommend speaking to your physician about some oral cortisone to help heal the inflammation. Depending on the settings and how close you go towards the eye area you can have a great deal of swelling that may take up to two weeks to resolve. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results who has experience with Fraxel for the best cosmetic results.
