Why Cortisone Shots?

Cortisone shots work like a targeted rescue mission for stubborn, cystic acne. When injected directly into the inflamed acne lesion, the cortisone—a potent anti-inflammatory medication—immediately gets to work. It reduces swelling, redness, and pain, effectively diminishing the overall appearance of the acne. This quick and minimally invasive procedure is particularly effective for those deep, painful cysts that don’t respond to topical treatments. The result? A dramatic reduction in acne severity, often visible within just 24 hours, making cortisone shots a preferred choice for rapid, noticeable improvement in acute acne flare-ups.

  • Quick Fix: Cortisone shots work fast to shrink big, painful pimples, often showing results in just a day.
  • Targets Tough Spots: Great for those deep pimples that skin creams can't reach, getting right to the problem area.
  • See Changes Fast: You can often see the pimple getting smaller and feel it hurting less within 24 hours after the shot.
  • Easy and Simple: The shot is a quick and easy process with little discomfort, making it a hassle-free treatment option.
  • Helps Avoid Scars: By quickly reducing the size and redness of pimples, these shots can help prevent long-term acne scars.
