Acne Treatment with Cortisone Injections 

Acne Treatment

Acne Treatment with Cortisone Injections Sometimes acne inflammation may show no signs of subsiding and may cause discomfort and pain. If you experience this condition, or your acne seems to be getting bigger despite regular medical spa acne care, oral medication, or topical treatment, you might require reinforcement in the form of acne cortisone injections.   It is important to choose an experienced provider when you are considering cortisone injections for your pesky pimples. EllEve Med Spa provides safe and proven non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures to patients in Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and surrounding communities.  

Need for Cortisone Shots for Acne 

Different patients may have different needs or motivations to choose an acne cortisone injectable treatment at a reliable med spa.   For instance, if you are set to attend your best friend’s wedding in three days, and you discover that your acne has become more inflamed and persistent. Or, maybe you just have one abnormally large nodule that refuses to get better, regardless of your committed acne care and medication.  In these situations, you might require a cortisone injection. Your medical spa acne treatment expert may also suggest this injectable treatment if your acne shows signs that it could leave a scar in absence of strong treatment.  Cortisone injections will quickly reduce the inflammation in the affected area of your skin. The best is to choose this treatment when you realize that a particular red acne nodule is visibly worse than the usual acne.  

Faster Resolution of Acne 

Acne cortisone injections contain glucocorticoid steroid. Your acne expert may recommend this as a last-resort treatment to a stubborn cystic, painful nodule that is just not getting better. Moreover, if you need your pimple to resolve rapidly due to a compelling personal or cosmetic reason, your provider may suggest acne cortisone injections.  Cysts can sometimes be embedded deeper in your skin tissue, and may feel tender. With this steroidal treatment, they will resolve faster and the inflammation will subside rapidly. If you have a history of cystic, painful acne, a cortisone injection may be something you get at the early signs of a newly developing cyst.   A timely shot into an early-stage pimple in these cases can nip the problem in its bud before it turns into a larger pustule. This will also help ensure that your pimple will not leave a significant scar behind.  

Safe and Comfortable Treatment 

Your injection provider will first cleanse and disinfect the area, and then deliver cortisone by injecting it directly into the targeted lesion. You will feel some pain for a fraction of a second, but since the lesion is already painful, you may not even realize it. You may receive multiple injections in different sites of the face in a single sitting.  Following the injection treatment, you can simply return to your daily routine and no downtime is involved. You might require some adjustments to your ongoing skin care regimen in order to minimize the risk of more acne problems occurring.    EllEve Med Spa receives patients from Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, and nearby areas for advanced and innovative cosmetic procedures.
