I had a dog who had flea allergies and would look like that with even a random bite. Her face would swell so it was hard to see her eyes. She would chew herself bloody.

I kept her on Frontline all the time, but if she happened to get bitten, it would take days for the facial swelling to go down. When I first got her, it took weeks to get her flea-related symptoms under control.

Perhaps your vet is wrong, but from my experience, they may very likely be correct. It takes a while for the body to purge itself, plus if you have fleas in your home, the topical treatment isn't going to prevent fresh bites from critters living in the carpets...
