Control Your Acne With Cortisone Shots

If you are struggling with cystic acne, and trying to get it under control, we have a solution for you. Cortisone shots—often called steroid shots—are injections filled with cortisone (a synthetic hormone) that neutralize inflammation and shrink cystic acne.

Cortisone Shots Rapidly Reduce Inflammation

Cortisone Shots feature a combination of cortico-steroid medication and a local anesthetic. These shots are usually reserved as a last resort for a painful, cystic nodule that is not improving and can solve the problem quickly. When your hormones stimulate excess oil production in your pores, bacteria settles in, feasts on the oil, and creates inflammation that leads to a cystic pimple. These shots deliver the cortisone directly to the pore and the surrounding skin to shut the inflammation down and help your skin heal faster and calm irritation.The sole purpose of a Cortisone shot is to shrink the swollen walls of acne cysts and reduce inflammation. Cysts can be deep in the skin and tender, and the steroids can help them resolve faster, which is excellent for those looking for relief. Cortisone shots are ineffective on regular pimples because the pus present in a pimple can cause cortisone to dilute. Our team might also recommend a cortisone shot if your pimple looks like it could leave a scar if it continues to worsen.
