Cortisone Injections

Cortisone is a concentrated anti-inflammatory medication that may be injected with a small needle into an inflamed cystic acne lesion to quicken up the duration of healing. This should only be used for deep cystic acne lesions and keloid or hypertrophic scars. Injecting superficial “pimples or blackheads” or getting injections too frequently may increase your chances of developing atrophic or “ice pick scars.” These may or may not spontaneously resolve. Schedule a consultation with our trained practitioner to see if you are a candidate. An acne injection is a medication with superior anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces the redness and inflammation and flattens the lesion, and the skin begins to heal the cystic acne instantly. This treatment was developed to treat mild to moderate acne and reduces conditions such as inflammation, nodules, and cysts caused by blemishes. It primarily treats excessive inflammation and acne and isn’t a preventative solution. The quick results make it a spotlight favorite for many patients.

The advantages of this treatment include:

  • Quickly treats large bumps within the inner layers of the skin
  • Gives you visible results within a few hours
  • A safe technique to diminish acne cysts without damaging the surface of the skin
  • Prevents scars from severe cystic acne
