Cortisone Injections

What is it?

A cortisone shot is a dermatological treatment used to inject into acne lesions and keloid scars.


Acne Treatment: Cortisone shots for acne are used to treat large, painful, inflamed acne lesions such as cysts or nodules. The injection helps quickly reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and promote faster healing of the acne lesion.

Keloid Scar Treatment: Cortisone shots for keloid scars are used to reduce the size, thickness, and redness of raised scars caused by excessive collagen production during the healing process. The injection helps soften and flatten the scar tissue, making the scar less noticeable.


Reduction of Inflammation: Cortisone shots quickly reduce inflammation and swelling associated with acne lesions and keloid scars, providing rapid relief from pain and discomfort.

Promotion of Healing: By reducing inflammation, cortisone shots help speed up the healing process of acne lesions and keloid scars, leading to faster resolution and less scarring.

Improvement of Appearance: Cortisone shots help soften and flatten keloid scars, making them less noticeable and improving the overall appearance of the skin.

Prevention of Recurrence: Cortisone shots for keloid scars may help prevent the recurrence of scar tissue by inhibiting excessive collagen production.


After the injection, the area may be slightly swollen or red, but this typically resolves within a few hours. Patients are usually advised to avoid touching or applying pressure to the injected area and to follow any additional aftercare instructions provided by their injector.
