Can Anything Reduce Chronic Inflammation Due to Facial Silicone Injections?

I have had microdroplet silicone injections in my cheeks to fill depressed and sunken areas on my cheek. As a result the silicone had caused a chronic inflammation over and around the treated area. I would like to know if there is a product or treatment to reduce or get rid of this inflammatory side effect?

There is always something that can be done about inflammation. Intralesional cortisone injections, oral medicines for inflammation and sometimes even incision and drainage all have a place in the treatment of this condition.
