Cortisone is a steroid injection treatment, used as a treatment for a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments. A cortisone injection is also known as a “corticosteroid” shot. Cortisone injection treatments that are offered here at Glow Aesthetic Center are offered for patients looking to treat their cystic acne, treat and reduce keloid scarring, as well as treat alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder involved in the sudden loss of hair on the patient.
How Does Cortisone Work?
Cortisone works as a steroid that primarily reduces inflammation in the area of concern. Cortisone is used for both medical and cosmetic treatments. Examples of medical treatments include muscle pain caused by sports injuries or arthritis. Here at Glow Aesthetic Center, we primarily use Cortisone for cosmetic treatments such as treating a patient’s cystic acne on their face or body, helping treat and reduce keloid scarring, as well as the treatment for alopecia areata.
Cortisone Injection for Cystic Acne
Cystic Acne can appear in the form of:
- And more.
Many patients may consider a cortisone injection for their cystic acne in an attempt to reduce their blemishes without any scarring or if it is not possible with conventional treatment options such as using an extracting tool.
Cortisone Injection for Keloid Scarring
Cortisone Shot For Alopecia Areata
The immune system works normally by fighting infections in the body, yet with patients who suffer from autoimmune diseases such as alopecia, their bodies are accidentally working against them. Cortisone shots injected straight into the scalp (where the hair loss is occurring) works by telling the immune system of the patient to stop attacking the hair follicles, which would ultimately allow for the patient to grow hair in the area once again. This treatment is not permanent as there is no cure for autoimmune diseases, and most patients do need to consistently return for treatments throughout their lives.
