Intralesion cortisone injection also known as cortisone shot or pimple jab is an anti-acne treatment to solve acne breakouts. It is a quick procedure (take only 30 minutes) that delivers fast results.
Intralesion cortisone injection is popular as it provides a short-term (but fast) relief to acne breakouts and even used to shrink large cyst.
The patients who has undergone intralesion acne injection often asked to follow up with chemical peel facial (refer here: https://premier-clinic.com/our-services/skin-peel/ ) for a long-term solution.
Intralesion cortisone injection works by combining a diluted solution of corticosteroid with antibiotic to deliver the best result.
Corticostreoid contains anti-inflammatory properties to help lessen your pain and reduce the acne size. It also helps to reduce the redness caused by the pimples, so you will look a lot better without pimple marks.
While as, the antibiotic kills the infectious bacteria that caused pimples. The antibiotic provides your body with more support to fight off the bacteria, then actively reduces the inflammation.
One of the thing that makes intralesion injection or cortisone injection a famous treatment of choice is because of the effectiveness. You can see your pimples reduce in the next 24 hours after the treatment. Besides that, it also have other benefits such as:
Acne develops when pores are blocked by excess sebum, dust and dead skin cells. The blocked pores then will be infected by bacteria, which causes the skin to inflame and swell up. The swelling and the pain is what we call pimple or acne.
To help reduce the acne, the intralesion injection or cortisone injection works by killing the bacteria and introducing anti-inflammatory elements to the skin. This also helps your skin to recover from the acne faster.
Intralesion cortisone injection should only be used as a ‘last resort’ to reducing acne. It should not be the first thing people thought of when they are having acute acne.
Intralesion cortisone pimple injection should also only be done by a professional doctor. An excessive dose of intralesion injection can cause the skin to sink, causing a depressed scar and uneven skin texture.
Aside from the potential risk of depressed scar (if done by an inexperienced professional), there is nothing you should worry about in doing intralesion acne injection.
No downtime required as patients may continue with their daily routine as usual after the treatment. Depending on your skin condition and desired results, your doctor will recommend a number of sessions in order to get the good results.
