About the Treatment

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 cortisone 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

How do cortisone shots work?

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

Are cortisone shots effective on cysts?

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.

Are there any risks involved?

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.

How long is the procedure?

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.
