Silicone injections to face
Silicone is not recommended for injection purposes for facial rejuvenation. The ASPS and ASAPS have a position paper on this subject because of the problems associated with this non-aaproved facial injection product.
Red Welt after Silicone Injection
Some redness or irritation can be normal after silicone injection is performed. Ice-packs and topical cortisones may help. I do not know what you are referring to when you say "off Line Silicone", but your best move is to call the physician who injected you. He or she is best prepared to help you with side effects or complications. Barry Resnik, MD, Dermatologist, Aventura, FL
