Cortisone Injections For Acne
Cortisone can also be injected directly into acne or pimples at the sign of a breakout to reduce the infection, redness, and swelling almost immediately. While this quick fix is perfect at the onset of a pre-event breakout, it’s only reducing the symptom and not treating acne at the source – or preventing future breakouts from occurring. Like the treatment of a keloid, it’s especially important when treating acne to follow a holistic approach. Kenalog injections are often used in conjunction with chemical peels, medical grade skin care, acne detox facials, and light therapy in order to achieve the best results.
Cortisone Injections For Keloid
Keloid is a type of scar typically characterized by tissue overgrowth often in the form of a smooth raised area that is pink or purple in colour. During the wound-healing process fibroblasts (a type of cell in our connective tissue) synthesizes the protein collagen, to stimulate the wound healing process. In the case of keloids, the fibroblasts produce far more collagen than what’s typically needed, and the scar continues to grow beyond the area of the original wound.
Keloids don’t usually resolve when left untreated and have a very high reoccurrence rate. A combination therapy of kenalog injections and laser scar removal is the preferred treatment option at MetaLab and has been shown to have the most significant impact when treating this type of scar.
Cortisone Injections For Chalazion Removal
A chalazion is a small bump in the eyelid caused by a blockage of a tiny oil gland. Corticosteroid injection of chalazion intra-lesionally is an effective, easy and a safe method to remove the bump.
