Acne Injections

Deep, painful cystic acne lesions may be treated with small injections of a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation, and thereby decrease the pain, redness, and duration of the lesion.  This procedure can be used to alleviate isolated problem areas, but is not considered a cure for acne and should not be used for more than a small number of lesions. Your dermatologist will evaluate the acne lesion and determine whether it is appropriate to inject the spot.
