We offer the widest array of acne treatments including steroid injections for the fastest relief of an unwanted breakout. Intralesional corticosteroid injections are used to treat deep papules, nodule or cysts. A very dilute corticosteroid is injected directly into the blemish. The steroid injection uses a small painless needle and will be able to deliver very quick and effective results. The injection will be able to reduce the inflammation of the breakout and will often clear the infected area in 1-5 days. The Corticosteroid injections also lessen the chance of developing scars, which is especially important for people who are prone to developing hyperpigmentation and pitted scarring after a breakout. Corticosteroid injections are also used to help shrink scars.
