Acne is a skin condition that affects anyone at any age. However, some patients with more severe acne may experience the development of painful nodules and cysts. These large growths develop underneath the upper layer of skin and can become extremely problematic when they are present. To treat these painful and embarrassing growths, patients can visit Terry Conrad of NaturallYou in Cos Cob, CT to have cyst injections performed.
What is a cyst injection?
A cyst injection is the use of a diluted corticosteroid that is administered directly into the cyst or nodule. In doing this, it can result in the shrinking of the growth within a 24 hour period, providing patients with relief. The injections are done right in the office by Terry herself, and take just a minute to perform. Patients will find that after the injections are completed, their cyst or nodule will be reduced. These injections are great for patients who need to find relief from painful acne or are preparing for a special occasion where acne is not welcome, such as an upcoming wedding or a family or school reunion.
When should an acne cyst be injected with corticosteroids?
Patients who have conditions such as cystic acne will find that coming in for injections each time a cyst develops can be expensive. This condition is often treated with the use of specialized therapies and recommendations from our team, allowing patients to significantly reduce the severity of their acne and in turn, experience far less growths with time. We find that certain topical medications and services such as photodynamic therapy can help reduce the development of cysts and nodules when performed regularly to manage acne. Shrinking cysts that are stubborn, painful, or long-lasting can always be done in our office as patients require.
