Dilute Steroid Injections

Dilute Steroid Injections

Targets: • Acne cysts

Acne cysts deep in your skin can be painful. If you want an overnight fix for your acne cysts, consider coming in for a steroid injection.

An injection of cortisone, a chemical that is released naturally in the human body in response to inflammation, provides fast and painless relief from cystic acne-reducing swelling and healing the lesions overnight. It can help reduce redness, inflammation and irritation of the cysts. It can also help them heal, without causing rupturing.

With an injection of cortisone into your acne cyst, healing should begin immediately and you may notice a difference in your skin the following day. *Individual results may vary.
