Why Do I Have Cyst Like Lumps After Having Restylane Injected into my Face 2yrs Ago?

I have been on steroids for 2yrs now after having restylane injected in my face, I had an ultra sound which discovered lots of small cyst like lumps I can't come off the steroids as soon as I do my face swells and hurts. I have cholesterol deposits under my eyes caused by the steroids my doctor has never seen anything like it, can anyone help.

I suggest you have an in-person evaluation with your medical provider, he/she can possibly inject hyaluronidase to dissolve the lump

You really need to get a  second opinion.  I have never seen anyone be on steroids for a long period of time because of Restylane.  If the cysts are Restylane, it can be dissolved with Hyaluronidase.

It makes no sense for you to be on steroids because of restylane injections.

Cysts due to restylane should be directly injected in hyaluronidase which will break them up.  Perhaps you would benefit from a second opinion.  Reasonable doctors consider second opinions particularly when encountering something that has been seen before.
