Cortisone Injections

If you feel a big pimple coming on, the best thing you can possibly do for your skin is to go to the dermatologist for a cortisone injection. We all know what it feels like when a monster zit pops up on our face, especially if it’s right before a big event. A cortisone shot, which contains an anti-inflammatory steroid medication called triamcinolone, gets injected directly into the pimple when it’s flaring. Within 24-48 hours, that huge zit will improve greatly. The temptation to pick and pop at our pimples can be extremely overwhelming. One of the best reasons to get a cortisone injection is to put an end to that urge to squeeze our zits. When you pop a pimple at home (something we refer to as “bathroom surgery”), you increase your risk of permanently scarring your skin and spreading the bacteria deeper within your dermis. Cortisone injections are one of the many different acne treatmentshere, and are safe for all ages and all skin types.
