What is Cortisone?
Cortisone is a hormone and steroid naturally produced by the body. It can be used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, particularly those that benefit from a reduction in inflammation. This is the way that cortisone can be used to improve acne; when injected into a blemish, it quickly and dramatically reduces the inflammation that caused that blemish.
By reducing inflammation, this hormone can effectively reduce the redness, pain, and swelling that comes with most deep papules, nodules, or cysts. These injections work best when they are administered to patients that have an established skin care regimen.
What are the Benefits of Cortisone Injections?
Cortisone injections offer the people that receive them fast and effective localized acne relief. Within hours of receiving treatment, these injections can drastically improve the appearance of treated pimples. Twenty-four hours after receiving injections, the treated pimples are flattened against the skin, appearing significantly less red and noticeable than they were before treatment.
While many other quick pimple fixes come with adverse side effects, cortisone improves the appearance of pimples without making their condition temporarily worse. The injections themselves are easy to receive, feeling only like a tiny prick.
In addition to improving the current condition of a pimple, cortisone can also be used to prevent pimples from developing into acne scars. This is particularly beneficial for individuals that are prone to scarring or hyperpigmentation.
Am I a Candidate for this Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in reducing the appearance of a pimple as quickly as possible can benefit from this treatment. These injections are ideal for individuals that want to get rid of a pimple before a special occasion. They are also an excellent option for people that want to prevent the development of acne scars.
Before undergoing a cortisone injection, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hopp. During this appointment, Dr. Hopp will carefully examine your acne and decide if these injections are right for you. Once approved by Dr. Hopp, the injections can be administered during this first appointment.
