eyelid has drooped slightly since having microderamabrasion and oxygen facial

the therapist was abit heavy handed over my right eye, and it was a little painful..when i woke the next day, i looked in the mirror and noticed my right eyelid had drooped slightly, giving the lid a hooded look.i went back to them, but they said it is no way possible for the treatment to have done this, and exept no responsibility.my arguement is that it wasnt like it before i had the treatment.She said it may be coincidence, but the area that has sagged is still sore...i dont know where to go from here..

At least from the description, I'd guess that any lid droop is simply from swelling, especially since you mention soreness.

Good luck,

It is difficult to assess without photo or examination. If it was swelling related, it should go away. Consult an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon.
