What is a Spot Injection?

Is Spot Injection the same with Cortisone Injection?

A Spot Injection, also called a 'Cortisone Injection' is a steroid injection typically Kenalog, is a go to treatment to quickly get rid of blemishes. The steroid injection works fast to calm redness and swelling at the source of the blemishes within two days.

Cystic acne, often caused by hormones, is a tough type to deal with. It mainly affects the chin and jawline because the oil glands there go into overdrive, making big, swollen spots. Cortisone injections can help a lot, especially if you get them early. They use a hormone called cortisone to calm swelling and speed up the healing process, so spots vanish in a few days without scarring.

Cortisone injections make your keloid scars flatter and softer. These injections are a quick fix before a special occasion or a big event.

Several benefits may include:

  • Rapid relief
  • Localised treatment
  • Prevent acne lesions
  • Customised treatment
  • Cortisone injections offer the convenience of a single injection.
  • Effective for any skin condition.

Causes of Cystic Acne

  • Hormones
    • How do hormonal changes contribute to the development of cystic acne?
  • Genetics
    • Can cystic acne be inherited from your parents?
  • You will produce oily skin when hormones alter during teenage years or periods, which produces deep pimples.
  • If it runs in your family, you might have it too.
  • Environment
    • What role does the environment play in causing cystic acne outbreaks?
  • Certain Medications
    • What types of drugs can worsen your acne?
  • Excessive pollution, sweat, and warm weather can lead to more oil and dead skin cells on your hair follicle, which could potentially increase the probability of acne and its chances of spreading.
  • A scientific study suggests that some medications, especially hormonal ones, can aggravate acne. Additionally, some drugs can induce acne by their effect on the immune system, the insulin level, or through altered mechanisms in the hair follicle.
The Spot Injection Procedure

Cortisone shots help treat skin acne issues.

How does it help the skin?

The procedure involves giving tiny shots directly into a spot. The medicine that is injected directly helps calm down the redness, swelling, and the acne itself. The injection helps the acne heals faster and prevents oily skin. It can remove dead skin cells promoting smooth and healthy skin as the acne heals. It is also less likely to leave permanent scarring. While many acne treatments are applied on the skin including creams, gels, or pills to prevent an emerging spot. Cortisone injections are more focused and fast acting in tackling one annoying spot at a time.

Pain Management

What can I expect during the treatment?

Getting a cortisone shot is like getting a small pinch. It doesn’t hurt much, but still, your cosmetic doctors will put numbing cream on your skin first to make it even less uncomfortable. After the injection, there might be little redness or swelling on the injection site, but that is okay, and it will go away soon. It is a very short process, and most people find it not too bad. The shot itself only takes a few seconds and the process is fast. But there are a few extra things you might do at the clinic, like checking in, waiting for the doctor or nurse, and talking with them about the process. All in all, you should be in and out in about 10 to 15 minutes, more or less.

Results of a cortisone shot.

Does the effect of the injection last a long time?

The effect of spot injection is usually a few weeks to a couple of months. But it’s not a forever type of thing and the acne might come back after a while. You can have a few shots in one visit, and each one goes to a different spot. Still, you’ll need to wait for 6 weeks after injection if you want another shot in the same spot.

Different types of acne treated by cortisone injections.

What types of acne can cortisone injection treat?

Cortisone injections are for severe acne that regularly causes cysts and nodules. Cortisone shots are a way to calm them down. These shots send a strong anti-inflammatory approach right into the pimple to decrease the size and make it heal rapidly. This is an excellent opportunity for extreme acne that does not get better with regular treatment. You should protect it from getting dirty and not touch it too much. Avoid harsh skin products and heavy makeup and, if possible, get advice on what medicine or skincare routine works best for you.

PRP treatment can be combined with spot injection in acne treatment.

What is PRP treatment, and can it be used with cortisone shots to treat acne?

The PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment is a medical procedure which uses the patient's blood to heal and rejuvenate various parts of the body such as skin. This may be combined with spot injections to promote general health of the skin. Just like spot injections are involved in treating specific acne or cysts, PRP therapy takes care of entire skin health, including oil gland function. Through increasing collagen and restoration of damaged tissues, PRP treatment helps smoothen rough skin, reduce inflammation and normalise sebum production by sebaceous glands. As a result, this unique approach for acne management looks at both visible symptoms and causes contributing to them. After a shot, doctors may prescribe a cream or gel to apply to the affected area. The cream or gel may contain antibiotics, retinoic acid, or benzoyl peroxide to stop more acne from developing and keep the skin healthy.

Spot Injection Prices

Factors Affecting Pricing

The prices for acne treatment injections in London range from fifty to two hundred pounds per injection. This is because the cost of living in the city, as well as the high demand for cosmetic procedures, make these clinics charge more especially in areas with fancy and expensive rent. If you look outside London and go to smaller towns or cities up north, you might come across cheaper options due to relatively lower living costs.

Spot Injection Essentials

Prepare
Before Spot Injection

What do you need to know before the treatment?

Timing: you should get the Cortisone injections as soon as you see an acne or if the acne sticks around for a few weeks.

Skilled dermatologist: choose an expert in a reputable clinic who will administer the injection.

Preparation: Avoid drinking alcohol, do not take NSAIDs three days before the scheduled day, like ibuprofen or aspirin.

Recovery
After Spot Injection

What do you need to avoid after the treatment?

Remember not to press against the treated spot or put your hand on your face. You should also avoid any harsh skincare products being used on that spot and too much sunshine, considering your skin might already be irritated. Also, avoid a strenuous workout or any activity that makes you sweat. Refrain from using saunas or steam rooms as it can make things worse, and don’t put on makeup right away. Just follow what your doctor tells you to do.

Prevent
After Spot Injection

Are there specific skincare products I should avoid to prevent flare up after the shot?

  • Oil-based or heavy moisturisers: oil-based or heavy moisturisers that can clog pores and exacerbate acne
  • Harsh exfoliants: might irritate the skin and increase inflammation.
  • Alcohol-based products: avoid alcohol-based products because they can strip the skin’s natural oils, leading to dryness and potential irritation.
  • Fragranced products: don’t use fragranced products as fragrances can be irritating to sensitive skin and trigger breakouts.
  • Products containing comedogenic ingredients: avoid products containing comedogenic ingredients as they can clog pores and worsen acne.

    Suitability check

    Spot injection for acne depends on how bad your acne is, what type of skin you have, if you're allergic to anything, and your general medical history. That's why you should have a consultation with your dermatologist or doctor who can look at your skin and say what will work the best. They'll figure out what's safest and most effective for your overall skin health.

    Suitable candidate

    Is spot injection for acne a suitable choice given my skin condition?

    What are the Risk

    Spot risks

    According to Dr. Aamer Khan of Harley Street Skin Clinic, “Spot injections might cause pitting in the skin.”

    Treatment complications

    In addition, administering cortisone shots to a tiny acne may make the breakout look worse. It may even cause dents, colour changes, or lightening on the skin. Your doctor might suggest medications or lotions with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or retinol. But of course, these don't work as quickly as cortisone injections.
