Swelling After Laser Treatment
Swelling can be controlled by elevating the part treated and applying cool compresses (but not ice directly on the skin). Swelling should begin to resolve in 2 or 3 days. If the area becomes increasingly swollen or red after that, let your doctor know as it might be a sign of early infection.
