With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
Sometimes you just don't have time to let nature take its course. You have big party plans, and an eye-catching pimple certainly was not invited. A Spot Injection (also known as a 'Cortisone Injection', or 'Cortisone Shot') is the go-to treatment for obliterating blemishes, working rapidly to reduce inflammation and redness at the source of the problem.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
No longer are we left at the mercy of the blemishes threatening to upstage us at an event we've had scheduled for months. No longer does a wedding day have to feel ruined due to a surprise visitor rearing its head, or a party outfit sabotaged by an unwanted focus-puller... Harley Street Skin have a solution.
Take a look at some of the incredible results our patients have walked away with in just 24-48 hours…
Spots have a habit of appearing at the worst possible times: before weddings, events or an important date. Don’t despair, though, there’s no need to let a breakout ruin your special occasion. Our acne experts can inject spots with a special solution that will make them disappear within 48 hours.
What do you usually do when a big red imperfection sets up camp on your face, and you need it gone A.S.A.P? You reach for the makeup. Well, Harley Street Skin are here to stop you from swamping yourself in concealer and elongating the whole pimply problem.
Instead, treat that pesky blemish from within with a shot of cortisone directly to the source of the problem. Forget the foundation, the tea tree oil and the toothpaste home remedies; Harley Street Skin have a solution that really works, and now you can too!

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Spot Injections are topical doses of Cortisone. Cortisone suppresses the immune system, therefore reducing the body's inclination to swell where it feels it needs protection. This means that any inflammation, pain or swelling is subsequently relieved where Cortisone is administered.
Similar solutions are used in medicine to treat conditions also triggered by inflammation such as arthritis, psoriasis, eczema and joint pain.
Spot Injections are perfect for anyone struggling with imperfections and are in need of a quick fix. Whether it's a party, event or even your big day, there is no need to let pimples take over; Harley Street Skin have a solution.
Cosmetically, Cortisone injections will eradicate visible blemishes, lumps and pimples, drastically reducing any redness and inflammation that may be leading to self-consciousness or embarrassment.
Spot Injection costs start at £100 for one area.
Of course, we're more than happy to help with a multitude of pesky pimples, so if you have a few causes for concern then that's fine by us, too - just be aware that prices will vary depending on how many areas you are are hoping to treat. Not to worry though - come and see us for a consultation, free of charge, and we can crunch the numbers properly together.
One spot treatment is usually enough to combat the problem area(s) you have identified completely, and results will be visible in as little as 24 hours.
In terms of lasting effect, however; spot injections may be incredible at healing and reducing breakouts we already have, but they won't do anything for preventing future ones. Only great skincare can do that!
Spot injections are extremely straightforward and will in fact only take between 15 and 30 minutes. To be on the safe side, we suggest that you set aside a minimum of 30 minutes for a spot injection appointment, although often patients can be in and out of treatment much more swiftly.
Generally speaking, there are no side effects at all - bar a significant reduction in the accused spot itself of course. On occasion, more sensitive skin may experience a modicum of bruising, redness or discolouration around the injection site but this is very rare.
There is no recovery necessary from a spot injection in the traditional sense. Patients may experience a little redness or sensitivity around the site of injection for a day or so, but shouldn't expect a minimum window of downtime or any significant side effects. Fortunately, as recoveries go, spot injections are about as straightforward as they come.
Cortisone injections will not affect your ability to work whatsoever. In fact, many of our patients will stop by during their busy working days for treatment, and then hop straight back to it.
