Cortisone Injections

If you suffer from Cystic Acne, you know how a breakout strikes without warning, especially, just before a major event, an important interview, or a big date. Trying to squeeze or pop the zit isn't going to result in a quick fix. Not to mention that popping your own pimples can lead to infection down the road and potentially a permanent scar. With cortisone Injections, you can take care of that bothersome pimple within just 24-48 hours. Serenity Aesthetics accept same-day appointments for cortisone injections.

What Are Cortisone Injections?

Cortisone is a chemical produced by the body to counter inflammation. Cortisone produced by the


body is short-acting, and has only a temporary impact on inflammation, so is not effective enough in helping to heal acne cysts or nodules. Cortisone injections, however, use highly concentrated cortisone, so are more effective in immediately helping to reduce redness and inflammation, and providing long-lasting results. Although cortisone is a steroid, it is not an anabolic steroid, which is commonly used to increase strength and muscle size, and known to have harmful side effects.

Cortisone injections are used to treat severe and sustained deep-tissue acne. Severe acne may include cysts or nodules that develop on the face or other areas. Nodules are large, painful, solid lesions lodged deep within the skin. Cysts are deep, painful, pus-filled lesions. They are often difficult to clear up with common acne treatments such as topical medications. Deep-tissue acne can be painful and last for months. If left untreated, it can cause permanent scarring. Cortisone injections provide fast and effective relief.
