    Default Swelling post Genesis 532nm treatment

    Just wondering what level of swelling is considered normal?

    I had my first treatment last week and was shocked at how swollen I was.

    I don't have a lot of confidence in the technician performing the treatments which is why I'm somewhat concerned.

    However, the swelling had disappeared within 4 days and I'm seeing quite an improvement in my cheek area. Redness is significantly diminished and all P&P's have gone. My nose, however, still needs work.

    Default Should be Gemini not Genesis

    Getting my terminology confused. Sorry. The treatment I had was using the Gemini machine by Laserscope.

    I was forwarned that I would be very swollen, even my lower eyelids may fill with fluid...

    I'm having my whole face, neck and chest done next week.

    Just how swollen were you?
    How did you feel after?
    Any chance of sharing a picture?
