When to dissolve restylane?


I had a PS give me a face full of restylane that left me with a flat spot. He filled it in and now I look like I have a blob and jowl-instead of high on the cheek, he went close to the lower face/mouth area. I have 5 days to an event-the whole reason I did this. I don't know what to do? I have been massaging and taking arnica. It looks awful.
