Some of 4 out of the 6 injection sites are still visible after 24 hrs. All the literature states they should resolve in redness after a few hrs. Is this permanent damage? Am I still in the normal time frame? Even if they hit a blood vessel , will this resolve on it's own?

Botox dots at injection sites
Most likely petechiae, or fine bruising. It will resolve in a few days. Not to worry. In the future be sure to be off of those medications that make you prone to bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory agents for 7-10 days, unless you are taking these agents for a potential life-threatening condition, such as heart disease or stroke prevention. It is probably best to take your chances with bruising.

Bruising after Botox injection
You are probably describing a bruise from the injections and should resolve over the next week. To avoid the bruising in the future avoid any NSAIDS, alcohol and other factors that may reduce the ability of the body to creat a blood clot. Also icing the area before maybe helpful.

Red dots from Botox injection
There should be no reason to be concerned that any mark from a tiny Botox needle on the face would leave a permanent mark. There might have been a very tiny dried drop of blood at each insertion site, especially if you had any aspirin in the week prior to the Botox, or Ibuprofen (Advil / Motrin) Alleve two days prior to the injections. Regardless of the cause, the tiny dots should be gone before long. Ask your doctor to see you in a week if there still there for an evaluation.
Botox for crow's feet.
There are several tiny blood vessels around the eyes and the red dots you see are tiny bruises caused by the injections and they will fade within a few days. In the future, avoid substances that cause bruising such as alcohol, green tea, vitamin E, fish oils, garlic and anti-inflammatory agents such as Aspirin and Advil for 1 week before your Botox treatment. The application of ice pre-treatment may also prevent bruising. You may apply foundation to hide the bruises.
