Broken capillaries on both cheeks

This has never happened before. I had injections on both cheeks at the same time. The injections stung and left me with broken capillaries on both cheeks. Could there have been something wrong with the needle?

Broken capillaries after injections can be frustrating.  It is unlikely that there was an issue with the needle.  It is more likely that the vessels in your cheeks are superficial and fragile.  This should go away over time.  If it doesn't, it can generally be treated effectively with a YAG laser or IPL device.  Be sure to ask your doctor when you go back for follow up.
