Acne Injections (Cortisone)

Say goodbye to pesky breakouts and restore your confidence with our acne cortisone injections.

The Cortisone Cure

An acne injection is a targeted skincare treatment that involves injecting a diluted form of cortisone directly into acne lesions. This powerful anti-inflammatory medication helps reduce swelling, redness, and discomfort associated with acne, promoting faster healing and improving the appearance of breakouts. Cortisone shots are particularly beneficial for cystic acne, as they can quickly shrink the size of the blemish and alleviate pain.

Pre + Post Care Instructions

Gently cleanse your face before the procedure to ensure the area is free of dirt and oils. Avoid picking at, tampering, or attempting to physically rupture or disrupt the treatment area before receiving an injection. Avoid using any topical acne medications or creams on the affected area for at least 24 hours before the injection. Inform your healthcare provider about any allergies, medications, or medical conditions you have that could potentially interact with the cortisone shot.
Avoid touching or picking at the injected area to prevent infection and irritation. Apply a cold compress or ice pack wrapped in a clean cloth to reduce swelling and discomfort. Keep the treated area clean and dry. Avoid applying any makeup or skincare products to the injected site for at least 24 hours. Follow any additional instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding post-care, such as using specific topical medications or avoiding certain activities. It’s important to attend any follow-up appointments scheduled to monitor your progress and discuss further treatment options if necessary.
