Facial oedema, commonly known as “facial swelling” or “facial edema”, can occur for a number of reasons, but it is usually associated with some sort of injury to the lymphatic system. The symptoms create an overall swollen look on the face, but it can be more localised in some individuals. Although symptoms may vary from individual to individual, there is usually the same underlying cause.

The main goal of any treatment option is to focus on the root cause of the facial swelling. If this is due to a minor issue such as a sluggish immune response, then our therapies will definitely reduce swelling and let your inner beauty shine through.

Microdermabrasion has proven to be beneficial in reducing facial swelling. Another one of the more common treatments provided at Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics is low-intensity laser therapy (LILT).

LILT as a Preferred Treatment Approach for Facial Oedema

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics our registered cosmetic nurses and clinicians can perform the precise treatment necessary to treat any facial lymphoedema, which are effective in conjunction with standard medical treatments. This minimises and removes most fluid puffiness from the face and neck region in general.

LILT actually removes fluid under the skin so as to reduce puffiness and inflammation, improving the look and the feel of the skin. The best aspect of this safe and effective skin treatment is that it can be carried out on any general skin tone and texture. The results show dramatic improvements that are long-lasting even in situations such as post surgery, to help reduce inflammation and swelling of the skin.
