How long will post Nd:yag swelling last? (Photo)

I had an Nd:yag treatment around my eyes 4 days ago. I had veins treated under and around my eyes. The first day I had very little swelling. Since then I have been extremely swollen, especially in the a.m. Even across the bridge of my nose and down my cheeks.Is this normal and how long can I expect to be this swollen? Thanks

Swelling Cessation with Ice, Elevation, Steroids after Yag Laser Treatment

Icing helps along with head elevation. If it is very severe and you are worried, I recommend seeing your Dr. for an evaluation. Steroids can be added to expedite the resolution.  Best, Dr. Emer.
