In my opinion, swelling after facial procedures is to be expected. With procedures such as a injections into the face, there will be some edema. When one uses  p r p  injections into the face, this swelling usually lasts between two and four days. Keep your head elevated and avoid alcohol and salt. Hope this helps.

Facial swelling after PRP

PRP causes a lot of inflammation.  That's partly how it works.  For now I would use ice packs.  However, you should make a call to your doctor to see what he thinks.  If you have any pain I would start to worry about an infection and you need to get on top of that quickly.
