Inflamed skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, or allergy can cause discomfort or embarrassment. Cortisone Injections can help calm inflammation, reduce pain, and restore the health of your skin, particularly in the case of cystic acne.
Cortisone injections are shots of a diluted medication called triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog). This medication is a type of corticosteroid, a potent anti-inflammatory agent. When injected directly into the affected area, it reduces inflammation and shrinks the size of the lesion.
At NSS Dermatology, we offer cortisone injections as one of our cosmetic as well as our medical dermatology services. Our experienced providers will assess your condition, discuss your goals and expectations, and determine the best dose and frequency of injections for you. Whether you need one or several shots, we can help you achieve smoother and clearer skin with cortisone injections.
