Why Choose Aesthetic Envy Med Spa

At Aesthetic Envy in Sacramento, our experienced team specializes in cutting-edge acne treatments, including cortisone shots. We offer safe and effective cortisone shot treatments tailored to your specific skincare needs. Understanding that acne is a sensitive issue, we provide transparent information about the procedure, its benefits, and potential risks. Our commitment to your well-being extends beyond the treatment room, prioritizing ongoing education and patient satisfaction.

What is Cortisone?

Cortisone shots, also known as corticosteroid injections, are a powerful solution for inflammatory acne breakouts. Our specialized treatment involves a tiny injection of corticosteroids directly into the acne lesion, reducing inflammation, rapidly diminishing the appearance of acne, and preventing scarring. This injection of an anti-inflammatory product (kenalog) is highly effective for reducing pimples, ingrown hairs, cysts, and keloid scars. Our experts will assess your skin condition, discuss the procedure, and address any concerns you may have. Administered by our skilled professionals, cortisone shots are safe and offer rapid relief from painful and unsightly blemishes, ensuring you leave our spa with renewed confidence in your skin.

Who is a Candidate for Cortisone Shots for Acne?

  • Moderate to Severe Acne: Ideal for individuals dealing with moderate to severe forms of acne, particularly cystic acne. These painful, inflamed lesions respond well to corticosteroid injections.
  • Inflammatory Acne: If your acne is characterized by redness, swelling, and large, deep-seated pimples, cortisone shots can provide rapid relief by targeting inflammation at the source.
  • Previous Acne Treatment Failures: For those who have not seen satisfactory results from over-the-counter products or other treatments, cortisone shots offer a more direct and powerful solution.
  • Fast Results Desired: Perfect for individuals seeking quick improvement, especially before a special event or occasion. Cortisone shots work rapidly, often showing results within 24 to 48 hours.
  • Healthy Candidates: Generally suitable for healthy individuals without underlying medical conditions that contraindicate corticosteroid use. Our dermatologists will conduct a thorough evaluation to ensure the treatment is safe for you.

Cortisone Injections for Cystic Acne

Cystic acne can manifest in various forms, including:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Pimples
  • Papules
  • Pustules

For many patients, cortisone injections offer a solution to reduce blemishes without scarring, especially when conventional treatments like extraction tools are not effective.

Cortisone Injections for Keloid Scarring

Aesthetic Envy also provides cortisone injections for patients with keloid scarring. Keloid scars are thick, raised scars caused by an excess of collagen during the healing process. These scars often appear ridged and lumpy after an injury or condition, such as acne or a surgical incision, has healed. While keloids are not harmful and do not usually require treatment, they can be cosmetically displeasing. Cortisone injections help reduce inflammation and the appearance of keloid scars. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve significant improvement.

How Do Cortisone Shots Work?

Cortisone shots offer several advantages:

  • Quick Relief: Ideal for those seeking fast results, particularly before important events or special occasions.
  • Minimally Invasive: These virtually painless injections involve minimal downtime, allowing you to quickly resume your daily activities.

Once cortisone is injected, the treated area begins to decrease in size, often resolving pimples or ingrown hairs within 24-72 hours. Experience the benefits of cortisone shots at Aesthetic Envy and enjoy a smoother, clearer complexion. Reach out today to learn more or to schedule your consultation.
