Kenalog Acne Treatments
Frustrated by large, cystic breakouts? Don’t let acne ruin your plans or your sense of self-confidence; at Skinatomy Laser Clinic, we offer Kenalog (steroid) injections to help put a stop to breakouts before they happen.
How Does Kenalog Work?
Kenalog is an injectable steroid treatment designed to halt the formation of a nodule and cystic acne. The diluted steroid formula gets right to work reducing the inflammation of the future breakout; the formula eventually clears up the acne outbreak over a period of one to five days. Additionally, Kenalog helps reduce the likelihood that the breakout will lead to acne scars.
Am I a Good Candidate For Kenalog?
While it’s not meant to be an ongoing treatment, you may be a good candidate for Kenalog injections if you can feel large cystic acne or nodules forming underneath your skin and you have a big event coming up. It’s important to undergo the injection as quickly as possible in order to prevent the acne from coming to the surface.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
A typical treatment takes about ten minutes to perform, as it’s as simple as having the solution injected into the breakout area. Ice or a topical numbing solution can be applied to the afflicted area if you’re nervous about pain during the injection.
What Results Will I See?*
You should begin seeing results in as little as one to five days, making this an excellent treatment to undergo if you don’t want breakouts for an upcoming event.
Is There Any Downtime?
This is a gentle procedure that allows you to immediately return to your day-to-day activities, but in some cases, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site.
