Blue Dot after Restylane (Sub Q) Nose Filler?

I've been getting nose filler since 2009. (sub Q restylane). I got again in 2011 ,couple months later, I sighted blue dot on my nose tip. I thought it's a pimple so went to doctor and she tried to remove with laser then filler was coming a bit. She asked me to see a doc as it's not a pimple. My surgeon said it will go away as time passes by but I still have this blue dot.I got Aug in 2012 again but didn't do nose tip part. I can cover with make up and no pain at all but just worried.

The tyndall phenomenon often causes a blue dot if filler injected superficially. This should be discussed with your surgeon.
