Red Spots in the Filler Injection Points

There are red spots in almost all injection points of filler injectionin in the nose- mouth area. Will these red spots in the filler inection points dissapear or they may be for ever? It doesn't seem that the red spots is going to dissappear after a week. I also have lylics which are still rather seen. Thank you in advance for your answer and advice. Irene

Skin discoloration after filler injection

The good new is if this is all you have after a week you are lucky. Discoloration beyond minimal bruising especially if accompanied by pain is a sign of impending skin death. If you do not have that after a week it is not likely you will get it. These marks will improve with time but no one can say without a doubt that they will disappear without any residual.
