At MD Skin – The Lounge located in Scottsdale, Arizona, we effectively perform steroid injections, or Kenalog injections for acne lesions. Acne is a very difficult skin condition to treat and Kenalog injections aren’t meant to work as a preventative treatment for acne breakouts. This treatment is performed by our trained medical team.
How Kenalog Injections Work
Kenalog’s active ingredient, Triamcinolone, is a medication that has strong anti-inflammatory properties. When this is injected into the acne, it automatically reduces the redness and inflammation and flattens the lesion, so the skin begins to heal instantly. It will quickly decrease that “huge bump” that is below the surface of the skin without leaving an unsightly scar.
Injections are administered through a very small needle, so there is minimal discomfort during treatment. Patients may ask for a topical numbing cream to ensure optimal comfort. The session takes a few minutes and there is no downtime.
Benefits of Kenalog Injections
Kenalog injections will dramatically improve the appearance of a cyst or nodule within 4 days and will completely eliminate the large bump, although new pimples may appear over time. Let us help you with your stubborn cystic acne lesions with just one short session of Kenalog injections.
