Most patients experience mild bruising and swelling that lasts for 24-72 hours after treatment. Using a cold compress and keeping your head elevated can alleviate this. Recovery time usually takes about a week. 

You should also be sure to: 

  • Avoid heavy lifting 
  • Sleep on your back 
  • Avoid rubbing or stretching your face 
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 2-3 weeks
