Steroid injection leaving skin atrophy will this go away?

About 5 weeks ago I received a steroid injection for inflammation in my chin after a car accident, 2 weeks ago the bump I had started to go away but now I have a debt from skin atrophy, the plastic surgery assistant told me it will be permanent. I thought skin and fat rejuvenated? Is she right? Also will it continue to worsen?

I believe it is permanent but it would only continue to worsen if u get more injections. Sometimes these things just happen im afraid sry
