Dermal fillers and arterial occlusion
Avoid for at least 3 months. The area needs to heal, and repair following arterial occlusion. Arterial occlusion, though rare, is a serious side effect, and can be reversed in the majority of cases.
Next time around, consider the use of a cannula for filling (this does not prevent arterial or vascular occlusion, but reduces the chances)

Lips and Vascular Occlusion
I would avoid anymore injections for at least six months since you had such a complication. Best, Dr. Green
Lip Swelling After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase
I suggest avoiding any fillers to the area you may have had a vascular accident for at least 3-6 months. the blood vessels are compromised. Best, Dr. Emer.
Previous vascular occlusion, now lips uneven
I would go to an expert injector and explain the previous problem. It can be evened out with precise filler injection. Lucky this is the only side effect from such a devastating potential problem. Blunt cannulas for the lips will decrease the likihood of a vascular occlusion in the future.
