I splashed 800 to tackle my droopy eyelids but my face BALLOONED my son couldnt even look at me… – The US Sun


A MUM says her face has ballooned after an 800 treatment to tackle her droopy eyelids went awry.

Mariana Janse was left with scarring and swelling across her face following a bad reaction to a round of plasma fibroblast therapy.

The 40-year-old had taken up the treatment as early birthday present in the hope of "taking some years off" before turning 41.

But she woke up the following morning to an extremely swollen face that was deemed so embarrassing that her 13-year-old son couldnt bear to look at her.

Mariana, from Northampton, said: "Right after I just had red skin and little dots but when I woke up the next morning it was really, really swollen.

"On the second day I woke up it was super swollen everywhere - top and bottom - and then as the day progressed and the next day the swelling stayed but then my eyes became quite droopy as well."

The mum-of-four says she couldn't help but laugh about her extremely swollen eyes as she had to face her son's teachers on parents' evening just one day after the appointment.

"I knew what I was expecting but it was still a shock waking up and realising 'I've got to go to parents' evening and face my child's teachers looking like that," she recalled.

"The teachers asked me if I had an allergic reaction and I said 'no I'm just trying to look younger'."

Most of her family saw the funny side, except from her 13-year-old son who felt "uncomfortable" by the the sight of the burnt dots around her eyes.

The scars were supposedly so harrowing that it left the teen unable to be in the same room come as his mum come Mother's Day.

Mariana said: "My family thought it was really funny but my son must have a fear of holes or something because he literally couldn't even look at me or be in the same room as me.

"It made him feel really uncomfortable and it was funny because it was Mother's Day on Sunday and he was worried about how he was going to spend it with me, looking like that.

"Luckily some of the spots had gone by then and he could at least be in the same room as me even if he couldn't look at me."

Mariana believes that, although she was expected some swelling after the procedure, she was "shocked" by how extreme it was.

She now hopes to warn anyone else considering the treatment about the realities of the healing process, warning that promotional "after" shots appear to be taken immediately after the procedure, before the swelling sets in.

She added: "You'd think twice about it if you saw a picture on Google of what my face was like because that's the reality, but it's not what you see when they promote it."
