Bruising, puffiness and pimples after Beletero
You also might ask about what you can do to minimize bruising and swelling the next time. For example, leaving with a cold compress to use immediately and at home for a few days can make a huge difference, as well as avoiding certain medicationa and supplements, applying Biafine, Arnica and Vitamin K creams, and having laser if you do bappen to bruise to allow it to resolve quickly.

Belotero and fillers do not cause acne breakouts
Injectable fillers do not cause acne breakouts or pimples. You should seek treatment for acne control from your dermatologist.

Bruising, swelling, acne after injections
Laser treatment or suppelements (Arnica, pineapple) and Vitamin K definitely help. Icing before and after the procedure helps as well as avoiding vigorous activity that elevates blood pressure.
Acne around the lip area may represent perioral dermatitis but is not a common side-effect of injection. If it worsens, see your dermatologist and they can prescribe medications to help.
Temporary side effects
To prevent swelling after your injection session, I recommend avoiding alcohol and salty foods. Drink plenty of water and sleep with an extra pillow behind your head.
Acne breakouts are unusual after filler injections. I would see your dermatologist again for an evaluation of your acne.
