What are Acne Injections?

Learn about Acne Injections

Acne can be caused by several factors, but the congested skin and clogged pores that play a key role in the development of acne can cause unpredictable breakouts that can sometimes occur at the worst moments. Abrasive or harsh chemical-based, over-the-counter treatments can end up making breakouts worse, but at Skin Boutique, we have several years of experience with acne treatments that are gentle and effective.

Cystic Acne is considered to be a more severe form of standard acne. Acne is typically caused by your skin’s pores becoming clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and a bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), and can often appear as:

  • Blackheads
  • Pimples
  • Whiteheads
  • Papules (a solid or cystic raised spot)
  • Pustules (small, inflamed, pus-filled, blister-like sores)

When a clogged pore breaks deep inside your skin, it can form large tender and painful bumps called cysts (pus-filled bumps) or nodules (inflamed bumps) that can last for weeks or even longer.

Our steroid acne injections are not only ideal for immediate acne crop-ups, but they also make an effective treatment for more severe cases of acne that are difficult to treat by other means. Cystic acne penetrates deep below the surface of the skin and is often resistant to topical treatments, but our steroid injections are quick in-office procedures with fast results that clear your skin within 24 hours or less.

Acne Treatment

This treatment removes dirt and residue from under the skin and stimulates circulation, which increases lymph flow and aids in the removal of toxins. This elite acne treatment also includes the extraction of whiteheads, blackheads, and milia cysts with an infusion of powerful acne medications and antioxidants to give you healthy-looking skin in no time. This signature treatment is safe for all skin types and can be used in conjunction with chemical peels and cystic acne injections.

What to expect?

Acne Injections Expectations

During your Injection for Acne, our Skin Care Specialist will make sure that you are comfortable before administering the cortisone shot. The Specialist will inject the shot which contains a small amount of anti-inflammatory steroid directly into the affected area. This should immediately begin to reduce the inflammation and allow healing for deep-tissue acne. They will then apply some pressure with gauze to minimize any light bleeding.  



Acne Injections Recovery

Acne injections do not necessitate a recovery period or downtime of any kind. Temporary hypopigmentation (skin lightening), pain, or pitting may occur. Avoid harsh exfoliating products, which can cause skin irritation. Avoid makeup application for 24 hours after treatment, since certain products can potentially lead to infection.
