In brief: It depends

It depends on what is causing the swelling.
Post surgery, cold compresses and head elevation work. If it is from allergies, then anti histamine medication.

In brief: Several things help

Keep head elevated above level of heart for at least 1 week (e.
g. Sleep in recliner) cold compresses help over the first few days some patients benefit from arnica montana and/or a steroid burst and taper (e.g. Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepak).
