Emergency Pimple and
Cyst Treatment

About Our Emergency Pimple/Acne 911 Treatment in Vancouver, BC

There is nothing worse that preparing for a special event; a prom, party or wedding (particularly your own)—only to discover a deep cyst or pimple threatening to mar your complexion.

When you require a quick fix that can’t be solved with concealer alone, our doctors at EverYoung will administer an injection of cortizone into the pimple, cyst, nodule or papule in a quick 5 minute procedure that reduces the inflammatory reaction. The offending pimple or blemish will start to subside within a few hours, often disappearing completely within 24 hours.

While this isn’t a treatment for chronic acne, it’s an excellent solution for a one-of-a-kind-event when looking your best is imperative; so don’t panic, call EverYoung and book a consultation with one of our medical doctors to determine if this treatment is right for you.

FAQ

Cortizone is a steroidal hormone naturally found in the adrenal gland. A cortizone shot speeds up healing of pimples, blemishes or cysts by dramatically reducing the inflammation that caused the flare-up.

Yes, and although very deep, painful cysts may take longer to respond, it will still speed up healing time significantly faster than if left untreated.

The injection can cause a sight dip in the skin, but our physicians are experienced injectors, and a diluted concentration is used to reduce this risk. Usually if a dip occurs, it is temporary and will resolve over the course of a few months. Early treatment also diminishes the likelihood of a naturally occurring scar; which is common in the wake of untreated acne.

This is a very quick treatment, completed in a few seconds. When necessary, a numbing agent may be applied prior, particularly for deep or painful cysts.
