We’ve all had pimples pop-up at the most inopportune times: the day before a big presentation, a date, or even your wedding day. The professionals at Femme Next Generation Women’s Care in Thousand Oaks, CA can help. We offer cortisone injections that can help to lessen the inflammation that causes the redness and pain of acne. With a simple cortisone injection, you can stop acne scars and abnormal pigmentation from developing.
Cortisone acne injections can be used on your face and body - wherever deep and painful breakouts are causing a problem. One of our trained medical providers will inject your breakout spots with a tiny needle containing a dilute cortisone solution. The procedure takes a few minutes and reduces inflammation quickly, resulting in a much smaller and less noticeable pimple within hours of the injection. The bump at the treatment site should recede and become completely flat in less than 24 hours
If you have a pimple that you can’t treat at home, is painful, or you’re prone to scarring, the cortisone shot may be a good choice for you. Cortisone acne injections are ideal for flattening, softening, and sinking deep cysts or nodules.
Cortisone shots are only effective for pimples when you can’t“pop” them. Acne spots that are appropriate for a cortisone shot treatment appear as a bump and are cystic in nature. Unless cortisone is injected, you would typically have to wait several days to weeks for these bumps to shrink on their own.
